Default PSI Motorcycle Kits

Anyone made these kits? If so, does the beak on the eagle nose snag on shirt pockets?

I asked the same question here a couple of weeks ago and got no answer.

I will follow this thread to see if you are more fortunate.

Actually, my question was phrased in terms of feeling any discomfort from the beak when you are writing ... but basically the same concern, right ?

No it does not. Manly because of the angle of the beak. Sold a bunch of them at the Baltimore Pen Show.

My question about this is the kick start thingy - does it snag on anything? It looks like it stick out. I'm sort of hyped on getting some of these. How do they look in the wild?

I'm giving thought to buying the kit. I strongly feel it is a (Desk) display pen. Most of PSI kits are. I love the novel look...however cannot and won't carry most of them and do not use for a writer.

Thanks for this reassurance.

Thanks.

Does the beak have a sharp point? Or taper off?

Nice kits. Heavy for the pocket but nice kits.

I agree. . I bought some but haven't made them yet. . They are much nicer that many of the recent PSI gimmicky kits ... I don't regard this one as gimmicky. . It has a lot going for it being a kind of Bolt Action style with a foot-pedal in place of the rifle bolt. The foot pedal may had more of a tendency to snag than the bolt. . I await reports on that "feature". . I am going to try to think up a novel way of turning the blank in keeping with the motorcycle them. . Hope to post pic in due course.

What I like so far. Construction is very forgiving. If the blank is over trimmed a tad the advance/retraction is still acceptable. The refill tip does not sit on the borderline of the pen tip end when retracted. As for the sliding foot pedal...gotta love it. Works each and every time. Snagging...the pedal is 90degrees to the clip. Should not be a problem...carry on proper side of pocket remove and gently.
