Normally, yes. We tend to stick with materials like titanium, copper, and bronze because of their toughness and corrosion resistance. But, at the suggestion of our friends at Blade HQ, we ordered some Ultem® 1000 and did a run of Bolt Action pens and Bexar Slipjoint knives. Ultem has high mechanical strength and heat resistance which makes it ideal for harsh environments. The diameter is slightly wider than our normal line but the action is so incredibly smooth we don't think you'll mind.
Isn't plastic supposed to be bad?
- Ultem® 1000 body material

The Standard [5.6"] comes with a Pilot G2 0.7 mm refill and the Short [5.1"] comes with a Schmidt EasyFlow 9000 medium refill. Many of our customers like to use their own personal favorites, however, and so we put together a list of compatible refills that work with our pens.

Due to Ultem® 1000's high mechanical strength and heat resistant composition, it is ideal for use in harsh environmental conditions needing chemical resistant features and high temperature resistance. It is ideally suited for interior components in aircraft, bus, medical, steam auto clave resistance, and other vehicles where such properties are required. Ultem® 1000 is compatible with industries exposed to extreme conditions and standards, including: Automotive, Aerospace, Telecom, and HVAC.
