SMALL BATCH RELEASE
Recently we’ve switched to using Cerakote* brand ceramic coating which provides better hardness, more color options, and is applied professionally by an official Cerakote applicator. The Cerakote professional we partner with has a variety of different custom treatments he puts on different items. One is a duo-color, two-part process that leaves a weathered and distressed faux-bronze look. We loved the look of this treatment and decided to send him some heavily blemished** pens that had big dings and craters in them knowing they’d come out looking amazing. We didn’t know the half of it!
We’re excited to release the Steampunk Bolt V2 pen with this custom distressed bronze Cerakote treatment. The Bolt V2 features full coverage bronze Cerakote over the body, it is then sprayed with a coat of flat black Cerakote which is only half baked on before it is removed with paint cleaner leaving behind a weathered and distressed look. The base pens had large dings and dents that hold the darker Cerakote and make give the pen an old-timey feel to them. The finish has an awesome texture that allows for better grip when writing. We’ve selected our black nitride stainless steel clip and screws plus a matte black anodized click mechanism for this release. The pen ships with a black Pilot G2 refill. Cerakote is known for the highest-rated hardness, flexibility, and durability for ceramic coatings in the industry.

*Cerakote is a temperature-cured, spray-on ceramic coating that is used in a variety of industries including automotive, defense, outdoors, and sports. While Cerakote has been tested and rated at the highest levels of hardness, corrosion resistance, flexibility, and heat; it is not nearly as durable as anodize. Like all coatings, Cerakote can and will naturally wear when carried against objects of a similar or greater hardness than the Cerakote. Cerakote can chip or crack if dropped onto hard surfaces. Be advised this surface finish will wear over time, and is not as resistant to wear or damage as our standard anodize
**These pens have been force worn with dents and dings for this specific treatment. The wear process is cosmetic and does not impact functionality. Each has been tested and performs as it should though there may be dents, dings, and other marks on the pen that show under the Cerakote treatment.
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.
