Ketalon Rohk Bolt Action Tough Pen

Do more than just write when you have the Ketalon Rohk Bolt Action Tough Pen. This tactical device fits perfectly into your everyday carry. Featuring an ergonomic design, the Rohk Pen doubles as an impact tool in the event of an emergency. With no O-rings, screws, or loose parts, gone are the days of your writing utensil falling apart when you need it most. In fact, the robust design has reinforced runners and a torpedo shape that is guaranteed for life. Totally waterproof and shockproof, the exterior features just a single piece with 3mm thick walls. However, the Rohk Pen is actually airport friendly as it has zero metal. At just 4.3 inches long, the Rohk Pen easily slides into your pocket. The bolt action is ultra precise and leaves no room for dirt or fragile elements. Finally, the entire Rohk Pen is ergonomic to handle long-term writing.

Great pen. Have it already for some time... Writs good. Somewhat flexible, hoping it will never break(using it at work)

@sam I did exactly the same. I used tape on my ink and once I got the thickness good the original Rohk pen was excellent.

Review from Kickstarter
@Sam thanks, appreciate it! Ill give it a shot when I get mine.
Sam Molinaro
Review from Kickstarter
I cut about 1/4" wide strip of electrical tape and wrap the barrel of the refill near the tip. You will have to experiment the the exact placement and how many layers/turns to apply. After a few attempts you should find the right combination. Good Luck.

Review from Kickstarter
Haven't received mine, bummer the tip wobble still seems to be an issue. Can someone who worked out a satisfying solution come up with it on here?
Steven
Review from Kickstarter
Still not got my pen.
I'm not so happy to read Sam Molinaro's comment that the tip wobbles.
I found the original Rohk wobbled but made it work with a little adaption. I also thought it would have been fixed.
The actual pen itself is great just the wobble in the ink that lets it down.
I look forward to receiving mine but know i will have to make the changes to stop the wobbling.

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you very much for the early shipment. Very refreshing to get an early KS shipment. Sorry, I have to go a little negative before I close this message. I mentioned twice to PLEASE fix the tip wobble problem. I also backed the original KS project in Grey. You said you would take care of it. It didn't happen. I am very disappointed :-(

I live in Virginia USA and I just received my 3 pens. Great quality, they’re strong , ergonomic, and they write very smoothly. I think you all will be satisfied with the product you receive. Oh and I tried it and quickly realized I wouldn’t want to get poked with one of those pens. Lol

Got mine today but seems strange to give me 7 key organisers but only 2 sets of thin posts/ accessory loops

OK @Creator, you don't seem to understand Kickstarter. I received my kit today. TODAY - September 18. You promised October. AND I received a fistful of extra key things. This over delivering ahead of the promised date is not the way Kickstarter is supposed to work. On a serious note - love your work. You folk are awesome. I'm looking forward to your next campaign.

@All : Update 3 will be served shortly, with some good news on the side.

Review from Kickstarter
Not been on in a while but in regards to your comment aug 2nd about tor being complex design, from what i saw on pictures its identical to the rohk apart from material used obviously. So if cant use the same mould i assume it would be milled from a block? Also with colours you say bolt and cap share a mold. You could maybe include both so if people wish we can mix and match both for greater customization

Review from Kickstarter
Just a little reminder to tighten up the diameter for the pen tip to reduce/eliminate any tip wobble.

Review from Kickstarter
I love the idea of extra bolt colors! I backed you for a Gray & Black and had every intention of swapping bolts. Red, green & blue would be excellent additions. If that's not feasible, maybe a survey to pick two additional colors?
Nicolai
Review from Kickstarter
@sven Seems like a cool idea!
Harry
Review from Kickstarter
@Sven C Sounds like a great idea to me but we will need to see what Ketalon's conclusion is following their review of the costs involved...
Sven C.
Review from Kickstarter
Something that I would think is kind of cool to have different bolt colors.
This could be possible as a stretch goal. E.g. With every pen you get 5 bolts in the colors black ( you already produce this ) orange ( this is also in production ) red, green and blue. So we can decide if we want a total stealth look of is we want a bit of color in our pens.
This is just a suggestion ;) but I think it could be possible.

Review from Kickstarter
@Ben : Great to hear, thank you! :) @Mark : The bolt and end cap share the same mould so they have to be removed halfway, cleaned and a fresh run has to be started. Working on ways to reduce cost + waste.. @Gaspard : For those who really want to mix and match grey and black pens, there is now a new reward level (Update 1).

Review from Kickstarter
Just upgraded from 1 to 2 pens. They both look so darn good.
Mark Whitehead
Review from Kickstarter
Or why don't you offer different colour bolts or even as additional pledged items allows for more customisation, you could do the same colours as your key holders. It would not cost that much to run a different colour material through the injection mould as something that size would not require a large tonnage machine. could even be stretch goals !!
Gaspard de Jong
Review from Kickstarter
I second Dranreb's request. The 60 pledge level would be more attractive if I could choose my own mix of pen colors.
Benny
Review from Kickstarter
Black with red bolt? That'd look wicked!
Nib looseness is a concern. Nothing that can't be fixed with a spray rubber/adhesive compound and repunching an exact hole if I have to. ;)
Ketalon Gear
Review from Kickstarter
Thanks folks, for the valuable feedback. We'll certainly look into any Rohk issues - minor issues can be tweaked, however anything involving a design change is difficult since it will cost a lot to alter the mould. And yes the Keyn comes with the loop accessory (@Harry, will try to get you that red bolt!) As for stretch goals, the metal Tor Pen is a complex design that invited a high minimum volume requirement. But never say never! We'll keep trying to bring it back :)
ALEXANDER LEONG
Review from Kickstarter
Ketalon, I also have to back the idea of adding the aluminum version to this campaign. I figure you guys already know the cost of manufacturing the Rohk, so maybe the excess funds could contribute to the Tor? Other than that, I have a few issues with my current Rohk. It seems if the top cap is hand tightened all the way, the bolt does not travel smoothly. I have to keep it pretty loose for the bolt to not get stuck. Could you guys check on this with the new batch? Last thing, could it be possible to have a little plastic cap on the tips of the ink to preserve the ink of the new pens? Thanks
Harry
Review from Kickstarter
We have to have stretch goals? Still a long way to go until the Kickstarter project ends.
Nicolai
Review from Kickstarter
Hey guys, went for the 2+1 as I need a reliable writing tool for my future studies. And since I'm looking for a key organizer as well, this option suits me perfect. Do the included keyns come with the loop accessory? Need that for my motorbike key! Pitty the aluminum version didn't go to plan. As someone else mentioned, include it in this campaign maybe?
Sam Molinaro
Review from Kickstarter
I backed the first version in Gray. Love the pen. I have one suggestion. Please review the diameter of the opening for the tip of the refill. If the diameter could be reduced slightly it would reduce the tip wobble. I am backing the black version as well.
Stephen Lestik
Review from Kickstarter
I think it would be cool if you added your metal version the the pen to this industry since the last funding project wasn't successful. Maybe it could be a stretch goal.
Dranreb Bernardino
Review from Kickstarter
I just backed the buy 2 get 1 free, is there a possibility of mixing it with a gray pen instead of all 3 black pens? Thanks

@All : Funded in 90 minutes! Unbelievable. Mighty thanks, everyone. You guys rock!
Ketalon Gear
Review from Kickstarter
@Harry : Wow thanks Harry, great to have you back as always :) @David : Good question! The bolt handle is a blunt cone in order to give the thumb strong purchase during activation (while also minimizing pocket bulk or pokes). We previously experimented with flat shapes, they caused frequent slips and were difficult to operate. @Michael : Great to have you back mate! So glad to hear the grey pen serves you well.
David Tang
Review from Kickstarter
@creator, For the bolt, is it any special reason to make it with a pointed end, just wonder will a flat end be better? Thanks.
