The handle is very nice to hold and write with and looks very good. The bolt action is, while looking very interesting, a little bit uncomfortable to use as the pin for the finger is quite pointy and the spring the pen came with is too stiff. Still, playing around with the opening mecchanism is very satisfying.
Wondering how one would get refills for this pen. Anyone have experience with this?
I just received my pen, and I am somewhat bewildered by the lack of information. I ordered this as a gift for my husband, based mainly on the connection with gun specs. My pen box included a incorrect brochure and warrantee registration for a knife! -no mention of the pen description featured on the Massdrop listing. Disappointing. While it is as described, and I guess I will keep it, it would have been much nicer if it came with information about the design features.
I really like this pen but I wish they made the same thing but closer in length to normal pens. I find myself playing with the bolt action and this happens and makes me look special
Hmmmm... I want this, looks awesome, but, the $12.50 shipping brings this to $41, which is around $60 New Zealand! Don't think I can justify that. Don't understand the large discrepancies with the shipping costs between similar size and shaped items. Can someone at Massdrop please explain why this is double the shipping price of similar items?
Micarta was a popular substitute for knife handles - I looks nice, wears well but is less expensive than mother of pearl, stag horn or bone

I want to say it's paper fiber of some sort.

Finally got the pen. It looks like layers of G10 which is like FR4 circuit board without the fire retardant. The feel and weight is nice. The clip is too stiff to the point of being useless. Does not come with a Fisher refill. It uses Parker style refills.
Bought 2 last time and still going fine. Buying 2 more now to spread the love...!

How many Fisher brand refils did they provide with the pen. I ordered this bacause the refils are about $5 a piece and we should get at least two.

Only the one in the pen.
Buying another one.
These are fantastic.
I lost the first one a week ago.
Devastating.

Seriously love the feel of this thing.
Just buy a new ink for it day one.
Mine didn't work too well out of the box.
I also didnt mod mine.
I will this time.
And I'm attaching it to a chain.

I'll probably get both materials when the other one shows up on MassDrop.

Thanks for the advice on the ink. Do you know of any mods (or places I can find them) to accept refills other than the Fisher Space PR4?

Later when I can look a guy did a break down on it in the old drop page. Search for the old drop and the comments section. Otherwise I'll link it later.

Today is Sept. 29, '16 -- just received my pen, 4 days earlier than the expected ship date! Very cool. (I may gripe when there's a problem, but I'll talk about the good things too). Awesome job, Massdrop.

This Micarta pen is great to write with especially if your hands tend to get sweaty. The built-in ridges help a lot, but the surface texture feels like my thick watercolor paper and heavy cotton fabric all shredded, blended, mixed with adhesives of some kind -then maybe formed in layers with pressure & heat. The result is a barrel with a real personality, but it is not wood, as stated by someone else. It's a whole other process, but it's real interesting and ALMOST feels like wood. All this aside, I bought it because it writes for "a long sentence worth" when upside down, like a Space Pen. It will be interesting to see if it is even better with a Fisher Space Pen refill cartridge.

I write when I have to be in bed.

The space ink makes this pen really shine. And the natural grip is a neat, free addition. Can't wait to get it back in my hands.
Just about there!

We will continue to check in with them throughout the fulfillment process and update the group again as soon as everything is sent out!
