This overhaul of our original Field Pen now features a custom made bolt action mechanism integrated with a fully machined (and yes, springy) aircraft grade aluminum clip. Note: Pens come with the Machine Era Logo.
The Field Pen is specifically designed to be your everyday pen. It's reliable, perfectly balanced, sports clean lines, solid construction, and is piece of EDC you'll love to carry. It's compact and durable with a solid in-hand feel. The shape of the bolt slot follows natural motion and allows for silky smooth action.
Fully machined from solid stock. That means every side and angle has been machine cut. By using Swiss-type turning techniques, we're able to deliver parts that are extremely accurate (tenth of a thousandth of an inch). Not only is precision important for mechanical parts, it also creates a flawless finish on the pen body.
Being an all-purpose-every-situation pen, we designed it around the waterproof, zero gravity pressurized cartridge.
Otherwise known as the space pen type cartridge. The Field Pen fits Fisher Space Pen, as well as the (space pen equivalent) Schmidt Megaline 4889 (included).
Two very different materials, same solid in hand feel. Brass will age nicely and will patina to a spent-shell-casing, golden brown. If patina isn't your style, the stainless version will suit your needs well. It will never change color, rust, or corrode. Logos are fiber laser engraved for durability and optimal mark quality.
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. Pictured here in matte black.
The clip is cut from 7000 series high yield strength aluminium. By utilizing the properties of this material coupled with design, we were able to create a part that will flex and spring back into shape. Perfect for sliding into a pocket.
