Tuff-Writer American made Precision Press Series Pen "Purple"
Precision Press Series - Purple
The Tuff-Writer pen was designed to be the toughest pen out there, period. It is built to withstand blistering cold, intense heat and any kind of harsh environment an operator is bound to encounter.
The thixotropic ink in the hermetically sealed cartridge and pressurized to nearly 35 psi lasts three times longer than a standard ballpoint pen. With an estimated shelf life of 100 years, the pen writes at altitudes up to 12,500 feet where most other pens simply won't. Best of all, no matter how harsh the conditions your Tuff-Writer will work with operating temperatures from -30 to 250 degrees Fahrenheit (-35 to 120 degrees Celsius).
The Precision Press Pen is designed to be "the ultimate clicky pen". It is entirely modular with each component being easily replaceable and built to last a lifetime. The pen utilizes an all metal body machined out of 6061-T6 Aluminum. To ensure proper balance and amazing strength the tip is machined out of 303 Stainless Steel. A clip, pressed out of spring steel and coated for durability and corrosion resistance, helps keep the pen securely fastened and close at hand. The pen also uses a spacer for allowing fitment of multiple cartridges (Fisher / Foray / Parker) and at its heart, a machined advancing mechanism with a two piece bearing-cam design for silky smooth operation (so smooth, it doesn’t even "click"). Finally for grip and comfort, the pen body has removable contrasting black Duron o-rings which assist in maintaining a positive grip on the pen when you need it most.
In addition, this pen also has a new and improved satin finish with non-marking surface treatment which helps minimize fingerprint marks and reflection off the pen.
The best part is that the new design of this pen allows it to be operated one handed and still fit into virtually any shirt pocket. Simple, functional and elegant all at the same time.
There are no identifying marks, no logos and no engravings on this pen.
Are these the same pens from the Ultimate Clicky Kickstarter Project?
Almost, there have been some minor revisions. The anodizing prep and anodizing is the higher grade anodizing found on our Tuff-Writer other pens. The clips are also slightly re-profiled and heat treated for strength. The tip has gone through an additional post-machine process to smooth out the inside bore and make the pen even smoother.
Isn't that a lot of work?
Yeah, but it's not easy to improve on near perfection.
