Twsbi Precision Ballpoint Pen

The Twsbi Precision is an all-metal ballpoint pen that is a competitor to the Rotring 600 and Caran D’Ache 849.

The Twsbi Precision is a $25 metal ballpoint pen that uses a Parker-style G2 refill. That price and its set of specifications puts this pen into an incredibly competitive part of the market. While it’s a nice pen, it’s competing directly against the Rotring 600 and many other “upgrade” retractable ballpoint pens.

Unfortunately, the Precision gets lost in the mix despite being a nice pen.

The Twsbi Precision has a hexagonal body and a knurled grip. The knurling is interesting because it’s rounded, not sharp and grippy. The knurling seems to has been made when the pen was cast, as opposed to machined out of the pen after the fact. This means you get some long-term comfort but lose out on grippiness. One upside of this style knurling is that is doesn’t tend to collect grime the way a sharper style does.
