Update #18

The Red Eye...

5 comments

Well, we just got back from the BLADE Show in Georgia. The show was wonderful and since we've got peeps a few hours outside of Atlanta we decided to stay a bit longer. The bad news was that we were cell phone deprived, the good news is that we were cell phone deprived. I've got to tell you, if you're going to take a few days this is the way to go. Only thing better for getting away from it all might be a cuise ship.

Now... the good news, there was a nice package from the anodizer waiting to get picked up so we swung by and picked this up:

That's right, you're looking at the first black pens!
The rest of the raw pens should be completed this weekend (assuming the metal finisher got done) and ship out by Monday night. If you haven't gotten your tracking number yet it means you're in the next batch. We managed to ship out about 2/3rds of the raw pens (not including orders with multiple pens) before we left and we'll spend this weekend getting the last of the raw pens assembled.
After that, we'll move on to the red and black pens and I still expect to have the last Kickstarter pens shipped out on time by the middle of July (although really, it's looking like we might be done a few weeks early if everything goes well).

Alright, I've got about 50+ Kickstarter messages and a million (plus or minus a few hundred thousand) emails to pour through from last week so I'll try to take care of them in the next few days, if you've requested an extra pen or need a reply please be patient.

      I gotta say - I thought I'd like the black most and the red least but I'm really liking the way the red ones are turning out.
