We reached out to Matt last year about doing a pen together since it seemed like a perfect crossover between everyday carry (EDC) and car enthusiasts. Both communities appreciate well-made things and, in fact, our founder Will orginally got into machining to build car parts before he started making pens.

A lot of us here at Tactile are into motorsports. Kevin, our Production Manager, flags and is a first responder at local track days and F1 races, Palmore used to do endurance motorcycle racing, and Felix's Camaro unintentionally caught some air in the parking lot last year.

Point is, the smell of gasoline and burning rubber runs deep within our shop so, after an introductory call with Matt, we quickly made some prototypes and settled on titanium Bolt Action pens with Black DLC coating, anodized bronze accents, and custom clip engraving. We only made 100 of these and The Smoking Tire Patreon supporters get the first crack before going to the general public.

Diamond-like Carbon Coating

Commonly known as "DLC," Diamond-like Carbon coating is a nanocomposite layer that turns titanium a beautiful black color and adds hardness and lubricity. DLC is often used in internal engine components due to the low coefficient of friction and amazing wear properties. And like every product we sell, these pens come with a lifetime warranty.
