Copper Gist Rollerball Pen

139.00

These use the Pilot G2 refill. There are probably lots of other refills that will work, but I haven’t had time just yet to try them out. So far the only other refill I’ve tried is the Schmidt 6040 Fineliner refill which needs a small spacer at the bottom of the pen o make the small gap filled in so the refill doesn’t slide back and forth. One of the new options is whether you want a black clip or a silver clip. The silver clips are the same tumbled and polished finish found on all of our other pens.

145 Copper is the most reactive and also heaviest of the materials used in these pens. It will patina quickly and dramatically or is easily polished if you'd rather keep it shiny. Copper is the densest of the materials used, so the more copper used the heavier the pen will be.

Updates to the Gist fountain 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.

  • Higby 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.

Weight - 2.9 ounces or 82.2 grams
