If you’re a member of the everyday carry community and you don’t already carry around a writing utensil as a part of your loadout, it’s time for that to change. Especially if you’re holding out for something unique and special to cross your path, because that’s exactly what you’ll find in The Tin Mill’s Helic Bolt-Action Pen.
Before you say, “hold on, bolt-action pens are nothing new,” allow us to assure you, this one definitely is. For starters, it’s built from extremely tough and corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel plated with your choice of polished copper or nickel plating, making it as good looking as it is tough. It also comes pre-loaded with a Pilot G2 fine point gel cartridge – meaning it’s compatible with one of the most popular pen refills. But the highlight of the show is the deployment from which the pen garners its name. Rather than being fitted with the same thumb-driven deployment as just about all other bolt-action pens, this one features a smooth-as-silk twist operation that makes it stand apart from the crowd. Lastly, it features a pocket clip, weighs just 2.2 ounces, and measures up at 6.1 inches in length. Get your hands on one today for $80.
