Opaque Acrylic Gist Rollerball Pen

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.

Acrylic - acrylic has been used in pens for a very very long time. It’s actually harder than the old Gist fountain pens made from Polycarbonate, so it should resist scratches quite well for a plastic. These are opaque, not clear. They are sent out just as they come off the machine. We do no additional polishing. It’s actually a really cool finish because you see the details of how things fit together.

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 - 0.62 ounces or 17.6 grams
