Mover & Shaker Click Pens
Movers & Shakers are for the type of person that loves a great click pen! These pens are made in my shop in Garland, Texas.
The biggest feature that sets these pens apart from others is an all titanium click mechanism that we make for these pens. This click mechanism is not found on any other pens. It is unique to the Tactile Turn Movers & Shakers. It is the ultimate click mechanism. It will withstand abuse and use and last for generations. It also has a long stroke length which means that when the refill is retracted, it hides about an eighth of an inch or 3mm inside the pen. This means the chances of ink getting on your clothes is very unlikely. It's a detail most manufacturers overlook, but it is very important on a click pen.
CNC Machined Pens
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. We buy the best equipment available, the best material available, and turn raw materials into finished goods. We never skimp on quality, as everything we make is designed to be an heirloom quality item. We want you to pass these on to your children. People buy Tactile Turn pens because they want an item with simple and elegant design made from amazing materials that will withstand daily use for life.
Tactile Turn pens are known for their texture. It's where our name comes from. The tactile feeling when you pick one of these pens up is hard to describe, but it allows you to control the pen exactly the way you want. Machined pens often forget about grip, or have uncomfortable grips. It won't bite into your skin, but it provides just the right amount of grip. It is subtle, but it also protects the pens from light scratches by providing a textured surface that disguises light scratches much better than a smooth surface.
Mover or Shaker?This question is usually the first thing people ask about.
The Mover is the slightly longer version that comes with a 0.38mm Pilot G2 with black ink refill. These allow many refills to fit and most require no modification at all. The mechanisms on these require all refills to be the same length, so some require slight trimming, but if you are determined there are lots of options.
The Shaker is slightly shorter and comes with a Schmidt Easy Flow 9000 medium point with black ink and will fit all other "Parker style" refills..
Both pens fit well in almost all hands, though if you have larger hands you might be more comfortable with a Mover. Shakers tend to fit better in shirt pockets without sticking out.
The alloy of stainless steel we use is extremely tough and corrosion resistant and should last for generations. This is truly an heirloom quality pen that will take any abuse you can give it and still look great. It has a brighter silver color where titanium has a little more gray color to it. All parts of these pens are made from stainless steel except the mechanism made from titanium.
