Would have been perfect if it accepted more standard refills like pilot or Schmidt. The Cal.50 Version is actually better in most cases.
No flame this time :-(
Yes its time for another pen. My wife loves this pen so much she took it from me.
I really like this pen, it's sturdy as hell, my favorite when I'm working or when Im on trekking. I see a lot of people complaining about almost everything, please don't believe them, just try one of this and make your own mind. I had mine for a while, works all the time, it's nice, sturdy, and lightweight, and looks good all the time and you don't need to worry about damage (before someone point the obvious, yes you can always take a hammer an break the pen, Titanium is not impervious to damage, just more corrosion resistance and strong as stainless steel, but lighter, and a little more scratch resistant, so generally speaking, I just say that is more forgiving than most of the aluminum and steel pens available)

So, at the end I'm sure this pen will last, and is more probable that you had the pen lost before you had problems with the quality.

I will totally recommend this pen, it's really a must if you spend a lot of time in saline environments, like sailing at the sea.
Got mine. It's solid, good looking, and filthy. Grind marks and dust all the way through the barrel behind the clip. Not a huge deal, but would have expected a bit more attention to detail.
This is the same Boker .45 Cal Ti pen that's for sale on Amazon right now for $41.13, free shipping, arrives in about a week; your choice grey or black--isn't it? I looked at the respective descriptions but danged if I see where the extra $35 is going.

Now the flame finish saves some $: Amazon had it for $103; its +$23 here, so you'd save four bucks. On a hundred dollar pen. And I didn't check when it would ship, but probably for that smoking deal on the flames pen one would trade about a month+ of time spent waiting.

Am I missing something? I mean that honestly. My math ain't great and it's 13:20 local, which means I've got a straight buzz, so it's totally possible the Massdrop version has a cool feature I missed. If not though...why would anyone buy the standard model? Its not even close.

Those will be the aluminium ones. Lowest Amazon price I can see for the ti is $78.72

Ah, thats an improvement for and thanks for clearing that up--I knew I was missing something. Those prices didnt make any damn sense.

However, you say you see one on the Big A for $78.72? That would make the savings on the drop of a buck anr change--far better than costing more but still pretty insignificant when weighed against the relative delivery times. The Ti thing certainly improves the comparison, but not enough for me (and I imagine others feel the same way) to want to get in on the drop. For what amounts to a dollar for express delivery one could order from Amazon and have the pen in days rather than weeks or months.
So I am seeing LAMY #M22 ink refills with ball point tips and then ones that I assume they just call a cartridge that has no tip.

Can anyone shed some light on what would be the correct thing to buy for refills on this pen?
Do I need the one with the ballpoint tip or just the cartridge?

I have always used cheap, disposable pens, so I am new to this and buying a pen at this price I will obviously want to get refills.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks-

The Lamy replacement cartridges all have a ball point tip. Some advertise it, but most don't because it is generally assumed.
How is a pen "tactical"?

I used to be a writer like you, then I took a 45 caliber pen to the knee.

When you carry it to the mall in your Maxpedition handbag to buy a bat'leth.
My refil stopped working today, and I've had the pen, what, 2 weeks, and used it maybe six times. Taking the refil out it has no markings on it whatsoever. What are the chances that Boker have taken a generic, cheap copy of the Lamy refil ?

Unfortunately not
I received my Boker .45 Cal Titanium pen. It is well-balanced, writes well, and is easy to hold and use. There is one flaw I found on unboxing. One side of the integral clip has been left unsmoothed, and it is razor-sharp. When people admire the pen I can't just hand it to them, but must first point out the risk of cuts. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Mine too, it's razor sharp. I'm going to use a flat needle file and see if I can smooth it off.

Mine was as well, but I filed it down to stop it
I have now been apart of two drops with Boker pens. The first time was the aluminum bolt pen. Originally I was sent the wrong pen entirely (which the did let me keep) and then it took forever to finally ship the correct one. The second time I got the flame treated titanium bolt pen. This time my order was straight up cancelled weeks after the estimated ship date (Massdrop was kind enough to offer a $20 credit for the inconvenience). I don't know why the Boker drops are so wonky but beware!

3rd time's the charm! Let's see if it actually ships... and is the right product too...
