Beautiful custom Fordite DuraClick EDC (Every Day Carry)!! Fordite, sometimes called Detroit agate, is a prized and sought-after material used for jewelry and pen making. It’s from the old auto manufacturer’s paint plants and was created from years of layers of baked enamel that built up on the old paint racks. It’s rare and valuable because the more modern paint processes no longer produce the overspray that forms the layers, so it’s now hard to acquire and is in limited supply. The material is difficult and tedious to work with, but the results are beautiful and breathtaking. All of the work and the steps taken to achieve the finished result are done ‘by-hand’, with the only power tool used being the lathe for sanding and polishing. This well-balanced, everyday carry click pen will be sure to fit your everyday life and last for years and years. Solidly crafted from raw 6061-T6 machined Aluminum, this pen is incredibly lightweight and will withstand daily wear and never chip or crack. It features an ultra-reliable, all metal Schmidt SKM-88 click mechanical assembly which is precision engineered in Germany by Schmidt, for the ultimate in click mechanism durability. The pen end includes a tactical designed knurling which is also featured on the pen tip so your pen will be easy to grip and write with. The pen clip is crafted from raw 303 Stainless Steel so it is resilient enough to grip even the thickest materials and hold on. The refill is the standard Parker style and is easily replaced. This is a unique one-of-a-kind custom turned, custom crafted heirloom pen that will make a great gift or will be a lifetime personal cherished piece that will definitely catch the attention of your friends and family.
