“What we experience, and what we remember about what we’ve experienced are two totally different things.” – Jeremy Finch.
That’s what the Twist Pen is all about. Creating a UX that’s so good it instantly gets etched in one’s memory. Whether it’s the pen’s satisfying twist-and-click actuation, or the textures around the grip and the twisting knobs, or even the pen’s weighted, cool metallic feel. The Twist is a modern classic. It isn’t edgy, it doesn’t over-innovate, and it isn’t disposable. It’s the kind of pen you’ll use for years, only because it’s the kind of pen your hands will love to hold and your brain will undeniably get used to.
The Twist Pen is precisely machined from an aerospace-grade metal stock, and is then given a DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) coating to enhance its strength and resistance to scuffs, scratches, or abrasions. Available in Brass, Stainless Steel, and Black DLC, the pen feels well-weighted with a balanced center of mass, and was made to be extremely durable and resistant to abrasions. It features a simple, easy to use design, with a textured metal grip that your fingers instantly get used to, and a twist-to-open mechanism on the top that turns with a satisfying click to expose or withdraw the pen’s tip. The Twist comes included with an Itoya Aqua Roller gel refill, and is designed to be compatible with all Parker-style or G2 refills. It even includes the classic pocket clip (with a recessed clip locator) allowing you to easily whip out and holster your pen whenever needed.
Every aspect of the Twist was designed to be the best version of itself. The pen’s build is robust and durable yet comfortable, and features a balanced center of mass that makes writing with it truly comfortable. The metal body also packs a neat patterned grip that makes the pen easy to write with, and a refill that provides a buttery smooth writing experience. Lastly, the pen’s twist-action-mechanism is engineered and machined to perfection. With absolutely tight tolerances and a smooth tactile experience that ends with a simple, satisfying click, the Twist’s user experience isn’t something you can possibly ignore (even visually, with that anodized orange pop!). Its design is simple yet impactful and memorable, and it clearly isn’t designed to be a product only for your eyes. Even in your hands, the Twist is designed to have a memorable UX… and who’s to say that twist-to-open mechanism won’t become a fidget toy in your hands?!

What Is DLC – Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) is a type of PVD coating, it’s impact resistant, and almost impossible to scratch. DLC coatings are used in sectors that require highly precise and extremely durable components – it’s commonly used in performance racing, aircraft, firearm, and fine watch industries.
Clip: Manufactured in New England from proper spring steel. This important part is chrome plated and DLC coated in models with black detail. Made in USA
Mechanism: For motion control, the designers have gone with the Schmidt Easy Glide for super clean, satisfying twist motion engagement. Machined from stainless steel and thermoplastic, it has a ‘lock in’ feature. Once the cartridge is extended to its full length it will lock in place, preventing retraction until turned back in the other direction. Made in Germany
Ink: After running through many different Parker size ink cartridges, the team has settled on the Itoya Aquaroller as the best choice for this writing tool. The 0.7mm acid free gel ink flows onto your writing surface like no other. It’s very reliable, and starts flowing as soon as it hits the paper. No scribbling to get it going. Made in Japan.
