Description

Delrin Gist Capped Pens

Nib: Fine
Clip: Silver

Some people really prefer capped pens over click pens and bolt action pens. There is a beautiful simplicity to a capped pen. We use an acme thread to keep the cap secure when closed and because those threads have a flat top they are much more comfortable to grip on.

The idea when we first made these in 2015 was to make a fountain pen that was friendly to the tough needs of something you would use every day. Most fountain pens aren't really designed for hard use, so we found a great niche. We got a lot of feedback over time about ways to improve the pens, so in late 2018 we updated this line.

Texture

Tactile Turn pens are known for their texture. It's where our name comes from. The tactile feeling when you pick one of these pens up is hard to describe, but it allows you to control the pen exactly the way you want. Machined pens often forget about grip, or have uncomfortable grips. It won't bite into your skin, but it provides just the right amount of grip. It is subtle, but it also protects the pens from light scratches by providing a textured surface that disguises light scratches much better than a smooth surface.

Updates to the Gist pens:

  • Longer bodies that accomodate the standard international converters. This extra length also makes the pens fit better in most hands and makes the pens a little more proportional.

  • Higbee thread starts for the caps. This is a machinist term, but in essence, it means there isn’t a partial thread and so initial engagement feels better and it is a stronger thread.

  • 1.5 turns to open and close. The original Gists were closer to 3, and it was a bit much.

  • Plastic internal part for the metal pens so they post more securely and avoid metal on metal contact.
