Bolt Action Pens


Quick Links: Titanium, Copper, Bronze, Zirconium
The main piece that makes these pens interesting is the unique bolt action. It’s one fluid motion to advance or retract and, 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.
Different strokes for different folks

Choose from 2 different lengths – standard and short. Both pen sizes fit well in almost all hands although, if you wear big gloves, you might be more comfortable with the standard, 5.6" model which come with a 0.7mm Pilot G2 ink refill. The short, 5.1" model comes with a Schmidt Easy Flow 9000 refill and tend to fit better in shirt pockets without sticking out.

Quality you can feel

Tactile Turn pens are known for their CNC precision machined texture. It’s where our name comes from. The tactile feeling allows you to control the pen exactly the way you want. It won’t bite into your skin but provides just the right amount of grip. It’s subtle, but the textured surface disguises and protects the pens from light scratches much better than a smooth surface.

Tactile Turn was one of the first fully machined pen manufacturers. We don't do injection molded parts like most other pens. We make parts one by one on our computer numerically controlled lathes in our own shop in Texas to turn raw materials into finished goods. People buy our pens because they want an item with simple and elegant design made from amazing materials that will withstand daily use for life.
