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 Tumbled Dragonskin Bolt V2 is our brand new dragonskin grip profile on our most popular pen, the Tumbled Bolt V2. The raw parts have been heavy-tumbled for several hours to get that awesome texture you’ve come to expect on an everyday carry pen. This finish is ideal for a pen that’s made to take a beating on daily basis and not look like it’s an absolute mess. The tumbled aluminum finish will hide a lot of nicks and dings that anodize or Cerakote can’t, plus it’s just a nice rugged look that won’t draw people’s attention and cause them to steal your pen. Our standard stainless steel clip and screws have been used on this pen. Select from a G2 rollerball or Parker style setup when checking out.
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. EasyFlow 9000 refills manufactured in Germany.
