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.
The Tumbled Brass Mk II EDK V2 takes our most popular version of the EDK, tumbled brass, and adds the frag pattern grip to it. Long ago, we made the decision to offer the majority of the EDK releases in some form of heavy tumbled finish. The idea was that the EDK was supposed to be an everyday carry pen that would get beaten up and abused and to hide “some” of that abuse, we’d pre-wear them with some forced tumbling. Though we’ve released a few polished or bright anodize versions of the EDK, the majority of the releases have had tumbling added in some way. The tumbled brass look fits with the new grip profile perfectly, and we think you’ll love it. Outfitted with a stainless steel clip, screws, and click mechanism; the pen ships with a Schmidt Megaline 950M pressurized refill with black ink.
The EDK V2 is made from C360 Brass on our CNC lathes and Swiss machining centers, in Mesa, Arizona. Schmidt refills are manufactured in Germany.
