New Finish – Black Friday Special Release

Our Black Friday Special Release for 2023 isn’t just a new pen, but it’s also a new finish: Hardcoat Black (Type III) anodize. This unique form of anodize is thicker and tends to be more uniform in coverage, but the main benefit of this type of anodize is the wear resistance and protection it provides. This is the most durable treatment for aluminum parts, and the anodic coating provided by Type III anodizing effectively makes for the lightest weight possible with maximum surface strength. The Hard Black looks great, but feels even better. Type III anodize gives the surface an almost soft texture that accentuates the grippiness of the aluminum. This finish will be reserved for future special releases like Black Friday or other limited edition pens.

It’s only fitting we make sure out EDK fans are taken care of with a Hard Black anodized version for Black Friday. The EDK has always been our go-to pocket pen with it’s small size and ability to accept the Fisher space pen refill, it’s often been chosen for those who want a lightweight, affordable, and durable pocket carry pen. We’ve upped the ante this year but making this pen even more durable with the use of Type III anodize. The pen stays as lightweight as it’s always been and is still the most affordable US machined pocket pen with an all metal click mechanism on the market. Then we’ve used our black chrome click mechanism and black Torx+ screws to finish off the “stealth” look. The new grip profile gives great grip-ability when writing and looks awesome as well. Ships with a black Schmidt P8127 refill.
