In our latest round of analyzing our current offerings, we had initially thought to do another run of our standard GroovEDK lower barrels. But as we tested a few more options we decided this manufacturing run we’d try something different. We’ve opted to change the “dished” groove into a flat-bottomed wide groove. We weren’t feeling just the wider groove, so we increased the feed rate, which changes the speed at which the part machines and touched the bottom of the groove leaving nice micro-rings in each groove. Hence the term “speed-groove”. This treatment is similar to the Render K grips that have this same textured micro-rings and adds a nice grip to the anodized aluminum.
Ultra Black has made it to our new Speed-Groove EDK pens. Our most popular finish consisting of heavy tumbling the raw aluminum pens then anodizing them a matte black finish, is now available on our latest grip profile. The speed groove lower barrels have a great texture and feel, providing ample grip without the need to exert too much pressure. Combining the speed groove profile and the ultra black finish gives the best option for a comfort and ease of use. Plus they look awesome. Ships with a Schmidt P8126 capless rollerball refill in black.
