Go ahead, make mistakes

We made some pencils in 2018 and discontinued them in 2020 because we felt like they needed an update. Our new version comes with a slimmer body, bolt on the side to advance and retract the lead, and replaceable friction fit erasers on the back. The all-metal construction makes this an heirloom-quality pencil that you'll be able to pass down to future generations. In other words, these ain't your typical BICs.

It all starts with the material...

And there are four options to choose from: titanium, copper, bronze, and zirconium. We picked those four because they're popular, fun to machine, and can withstand a lifetime of use.

TITANIUM       1.0oz

Tough, lightweight, extremely corrosion resistant, and the best-selling material we work with. If this is your first Tactile Turn product, we recommend starting with titanium.

COPPER       1.7oz

One of the few metallic elements with a natural color other than gray or silver. Naturally antimicrobial, copper will patina and darken with time and use.

BRONZE       1.5oz

Consisting mostly of copper, tin, and other metals like aluminum, manganese, nickel, or zinc. Bronze machines beautifully and looks great when highly polished or with some patina.

ZIRCONIUM       1.5oz

Directly below titanium on the periodic table with similar corrosion resistance. Zirconium is difficult to machine and one of the most expensive materials we work with but lustrous, dark grey color looks amazing.

Designed to last forever

Everything we sell comes with a Lifetime Warranty because we believe tools should be carried, used, and trusted to last. If something unexpected goes wrong, let us know and we'll make it right.
