Thanks for checking out my Kickstarter page! My name is Devin Cammack and I have always loved woodworking, and over the past few years I focused that interest into making beautiful custom pens. This is something I love and want to share with everyone.
I have some new pen designs and woods that I would love to start producing, and with your help I can! The wood for these pens I have specially chosen for their unique color, grain and attractiveness. These are truly unique woods. Burls are abnormal growths on trees that create beautiful grain patterns with lots of knotting. Spalting occurs when a fungus grows on dead trees, and creates interesting patterns in the wood.
Each pen will come in a velvet sleeve to protect the pen.
Below are the awards with pictures of the various available woods.
This fun pen utilizes a clicker mechanism and is great for everyday use. Comes in 10kt Gold, Black Titanium and Chrome.
The Consul is a wonderful smaller rollerball pen with a magnetic cap. The cap magnetically snaps on and off, and can be posted to the back of the pen as well. It is a well balanced pen that writes wonderfully. Comes in 24kt Gold, Chrome, Gun Metal and Satin Chrome.
The Diplomat is a wonderful full sized pen that makes writing a pleasure. The cap and center band have smooth accents and this pen is available with a rollerball tip or a fountain nib. The cap screws on and can also be posted to the back of the pen. Comes in Gold Titanium, Black Titanium and Rhodium w/ 22kt gold accents.
The Ambassador is an elegant collector's grade pen that writes beautifully. The cap and post both have decorative hand-cast inserts, as well as a decorative center band. This pen is available with a rollerball tip or a fountain nib. The cap screws on and can also be posted to the back of the pen. Comes in Rhodium w/ black titanium accents or Rhodium w/ 22kt gold accents.

One of each pen available in this kickstarter. Pick all different materials and platings for variety, or make them themed! You get them all!
All of the materials here are natural, and as such can have significant variation from piece to piece.
Box Elder Burl
This is a generally light, yellowish wood with intense figuring and swirls and knotting.
This beautiful wood is a personal favorite, and can vary significantly in appearance. It goes from light brown to a dark greenish grey.
Redwood burl is a dark reddish brown with intense knotting and swirling grain.
Maple burl is a light yellowish wood with dark, heavy knotting.
Figured walnut has a beautiful grain pattern and dark swirling patterns.
Spalted Tamarind is a light brown with beautiful swirling black lines.
Deer antler is a beautiful, while challenging material to work with. The color can vary from white, to intense brown. Also, the texture can vary depending on whether it is the harder, exterior portion, or the spongier interior (which is then coated with acrylic to provide a smooth feel.) All deer antler is naturally shed.

Risks and challenges
I only see two risks associated with this project. The first is that the materials could go out of stock. I have mitigated this risk by using several suppliers through which I order my materials. Therefore the likelihood of not being able to find a specific material is slim. The second risk is that the delivery date could be delayed if I receive more orders than I anticipate. Although I am confident that I can meet our delivery goal unless I receive a very large number of backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
