Small Batch Release
The Dragonskin grip is an experimental live milling technique added to the machining process first introduced on the EDK, and we’re super excited to add it to our Bolt V2. We started with the standard grooved grip profile, but then add overlaying cuts that are reminiscent of dragon scales, hence the Dragonskin moniker. The look is both menacing and intriguing and makes the pen look completely different than our standard grip options. They’re not sharp at all but provide a great tactile grip on the lower barrel and are quite comfortable for long writing sessions.
The green mamba is one of the most venomous snakes in the world though thankfully they are rarely encountered. That being said, these scaled beasts reminded us of the Dragonskin Bolt and when Cerakote released the Green Mamba (H-351) color we immediately sent off a small batch for this color. Applied in two thin layers, the surface is shiny but non-metallic with a wonderful texture that aids in gripping the pen. The even coats look stunning on the Dragonskin Bolt, probably the nicest color for this specific grip profile. We tried multiple different knobs and clip combinations, ultimately settling on matte grey anodized clips and knobs for this release. The color combination of the Green Mamba Cerakote and matte grey anodize is KILLER, not literally, but you get the point. Ships with a black Pilot G2 refill.
40 pens available
The Bolt V2 is made from 6061-T aluminum on our CNC lathes and Swiss machining centers, in Mesa, Arizona. Pilot refills are manufactured in Japan.
*6061 aluminum clips are not as stiff as our stainless steel clips. They have more spring to them and can snap or bend if caught and pulled hard on something. They are more than adequate and stronger than many clips used on metal pens made out of lighter material. The anodize will wear over time, but it is more robust than the black nitride we use on our standard black clips.
