Dear All,

 

Although I have many fine pens, I tend to not take them with me on a daily basis (I used to bring around a MB 146 for a week and it got scratched up so badly I felt really bad), so I bought a Nitecore NTP10 Tactical Pen as a backup pen to always have on me.  This pen uses Fisher Refills, which make it really practical, and I keep it inside my pocket and this thing is so solid it never scratches (but ends up scratching other things).

 

However, one day it got caught on something and the clip bent outwards completely.  I tried bending it back, but no matter how much I bend it, it won't be past the flat angle and I have no idea how to remove the clip.  Any ideas on how to unbend this clip?  I believe it is made of Titanium, but I am unsure.

 

Many thanks in advance.

If you look inside of the cap, is there a machine screw that cap top with the remainder of the cap.  Looks like it is two pieces.


Hard times don't last, but hard people do.

Thank a Veteran.

use a key or a similar width object covered with a plastic straw to protect the cap finish.  insert the key flat wise between the clip and cap body.  twist the key to slightly raise the clip behind the point you want bent down. bend that part down to touch the barrel.  repeat is necessary.
