Titanium pen.
Given the poor track record of products that use titanium in their name I should be skeptical about this pen. But Fisher is a respectable company, and it does rather feel like titanium. Some day when I have time I'll test it.
Sadly, reader Jeff Deifik informs me that it's yet another case of a company using the word titanium when in fact they meant titanium nitride, not titanium metal. Oh well, I should have known. Unfortunately for my pocketbook Jeff also pointed me to a pen made of actual titanium, for $237. Watch for it showing up on this site before too long.
