Bulletproof Pen Review: TI-Post Raw Pen + Stylus

TI-Post Raw Titatnium Pen + Stylus, , $75.00 by BIGiDESIGN
36.5g: cap 9.5g, body 27g

I am always on the lookout for gear that is meant to last, and the titanium TI-Post Raw Pen + Stylus appears indestructible. Born from a successful Kickstarter campaign, this is the second generation of BIGiDESIGN’s flagship pen that makes several upgrades on the original design.


There are several reasons why I recommend this pen after putting it through the gauntlet.

  1. Made of titanium and is practically indestructible
    I have actually used it as a tent stake and beat it into hard packed ground with no indication that it would bend or snap.
  2. Has a stylus tip on the back end of it
    When I was on Polar Expedition Training, I wanted to use my phone but taking gloves off was absolutely not an option - solution: stylus. And if you don’t like the look of it, it comes with a flat screw on replacement - titanium, of course.
  3. Easily accepts wide variety of refill cartridges
    Some pens are meant to be thrown out, others have proprietary cartridges… not this one, I was able to fit too many to list that were laying around my house.
  4. Threaded cap and back end
    A screw cap not only keeps dirt out in case you’re pounding this pen into the ground, but it also keeps me from losing it. In addition, the pen is short on its own, and the weight of the cap on the back end of the pen extends it to a comfortable length and balances the weight.

As far as performance goes, the pen writes very well. The cartridge it comes with draws a fine line and didn’t fail even after I froze the pen into a block of ice. The weight is balanced when the cap is posted (attached to the end), and it feels solid in the hand. Screwing the pen together means you’ll never lose any pieces, but I am afraid my days are numbered with either the stylus tip or the flat screw. Now, while this pen is a bit too heavy to recommend to minimalists who snap their toothbrushes, the advantages of having a sturdy rod that does not rust and serves multiple functions sure are attractive.

In conclusion, I recommend this pen to anyone who is looking for a rollerball that can take a bullet and keep writing.
