Sliders are FINALLY in stock. The big batch that I recently sent had issues with a few of the Gliders, so I am having to send in more to get all orders filled. These should be back the second week of March. If you currently have an order in for a Glider and you want to switch to a Slider you can send an email to will@tactileturn.com.

Slider or Glider?

This question is usually the first thing people ask about. 

The Slider is slightly shorter and comes with a Schmidt Easy Flow 9000 medium point with black ink and will fit all other "Parker style" refills.

The Glider is the slightly longer version that comes with a 0.38mm Pilot G2 with black ink refill. These are a little easier than the old pens to allow refills to fit and most require no modification at all for many different refills.

Both pens fit well in almost all hands, though if you have larger hands you might be more comfortable with a Glider. Sliders tend to fit better in shirt pockets without sticking out.

Overall there is much less need to modify refills on these pens than previous pens. If you do want to fit a few of the refills from the Glider list in the Slider check out the video below. Sliders will include the Glider spring.

Bolt

The main piece that makes these pens really interesting is the bolt action. I use a shape unlike any other pen out there. It is one fluid motion to advance or retract the refill. Because the surfaces of both the interior part and the inside surface have been carefully machined to be extra smooth, the action feels amazingly satisfying. 

Titanium

Titanium is tough, lightweight, and extremely corrosion resistant. The center section of these pens is grade 9 titanium and all other parts are grade 5, also known as 6AL-4V. After meeting some great people in the industry and having plenty of experience with the material, I have been able to bring the titanium price point down significantly. All parts of these pens are made from titanium except the clip which is stainless steel.

DLC Coating

 

Physical vapor deposition coatings are extremely tough coatings that are mostly found to improve wear characteristics on machine tools and since the coatings are quite expensive they also are found on high end watches. Diamond Like Carbon aka DLC, is a beautiful black coating that will hold up great no matter how tough you are on your pens. DLC will only be available on the titanium pens.
