I highly enjoy all my BigIDesign pens and tools. The Dual Side Click is no exception. I had to “work in” the switch a little bit which was simple. The main thing was realizing it’s one piece that you push from either side. Very solid and simple design. I thought it was 2 separate mechanisms.
The pen is well balanced, feels great in the hand and has the cool and functional retracting function. It’s great you can try many new types of refills out. The Arto EDC can take even more.
The only thing I would change with the pen is the refill. The Schmidt 900 isn’t my favorite. I prefer the 9000 from Schmidt or Signo, JetStream, G2, Itoya and some others.
It’s a great pen, has a lifetime warranty and excellent customer service. Make sure you’re ordering from the proper channel, though. I’m based in the US and accidentally ordered from the international department, which increased shipping time significantly.
The first items I bought from Big Idea Design were tools, the Ti Screwdriver and the Ti Wrench. I liked a lot of them, the screwdriver in my opinion, with some improvements to do, but overall I liked them and they are articles with good quality. My first pen was the Mini Dual Side Click, again an article that I liked a lot, very resistant and good quality. Recently bought the normal size of Dual Side Click Pen and well, I was a little disappointed. The quality of the material remains, the Titanium is equal to the Mini Dual Side Click, however the finishes left me disappointed, the pocket clip has some slack, moves to the sides very easily, even the screw being tightened at maximum, also came slightly curved. I also noticed that the refill inside the pen is misaligned, it is possible to see on the tip of the pen that the refill is not aligned as it should be. Well, in my opinion, these are small details that escape the standard of quality, and for the price they practice, as a premium items, these defects should not exist. I hope Big Idea Design is not losing quality in their articles.
This is my 3rd pen from Big Idea and I absolutely love it. It is an absolute joy to use. The craftsmanship is top notch!
Thank you so much for your feedback, Fernando! We appreciate your support!
Got the double side-click copper for Father's Day. I coupled it with Uniball Impact RT 207 Bold Blue gel refills, cause I really like the way those pens write. I LOVE this thing! It's hefty in the hand, which works great for me. Action is super smooth and satisfying. The Schmidt refill it ships with writes nice, but the Uniball gel (for me) is where it's at. If you like quality writing implements and are looking for an awesome pen that will probably outlive you, get this. Also, it matches my copper scaled Kershaw Leek.
Now, if BigIdea would just make mechanical pencils to match, the world would be complete.
I bought the zirconium version which yields a professional business class vibe. The pen has sufficient weight to afford a quality feeling build. Its balances towards the clicker side of the pen but permits typical pen spinning/tricks. It crosses the line perfectly between tactical and functional. The pen does not look like a stabbing tool yet it functions the same as most tactical pens but looks better doing it. Its simple yet effective design expertly adapts to nearly any pen refill. It’s amazing to have such a well designed pen that also takes your favorite G2 refills. Big Idea design really hit a home run with this one!
