The new Mk II profile was initially a design element added to our prototype release of the Retraktable mechanical pencil. Initial feedback from early users moved this new grip profile from a prototype to a standard option on the Retraktable, but also a special release option for the Bolt and EDK. Why Mk II? Mk II (later Mk 2) was the nomenclature of the fragmentation anti-personnel type hand grenade used by the United States from 1918 through the 1960s. Often referred to as the “pineapple grenade” due to its strange outward appearance, it was also called the “frag”. Our Mk II has a similar “frag” pattern milled into the grip area that provides a nice tactile feel and looks cool too.
One last Mk II hurrah before we wrap up 2021 and put a bow on it. With sourcing new anodize, you never know what you’re going to get, so we erred on the side of safety and sent these out to an old anodizer that still does work for us but we don’t normally get this color from them. Their matte grey anodize is a nice blue-grey that is on the lighter side, but still look really good. The overall feel of the pen is great too with the matte finish and frag grip. The matching matte grey anodized knob and clip brings the entire pen together and make for a great addition to the Mk II Bolt V2 pens. The pen ships with a black Pilot G2 refill.
