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.
We’ve gone all in on the full coat of matte red anodized for the latest release of the Dragonskin Bolt V2. Not only that but we did a double batch of 100 pens for this release so we should have enough to go around. Each part has gone through the full four-hour heavy tumble process to get a good texture on the base material. The next step is a matte red anodize finish on the body, knob, and clip that looks amazing. This is one of those perfect colorways that we don’t often see with anodize. The knobs and aluminum clips* were anodized in the same matte red and have been attached with stainless steel screws. Ships with a black Pilot G2 refill.
100 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.
