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 – Glider (Longer) and Slider (Shorter), see graphic. 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.

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.

Texture

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.

Bolt Action

The main piece that makes these pens really interesting is the bolt action. I use a shape unlike any other pen out there. It is one fluid motion to advance or retract the refill. 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.
