NEW 'Carbon Fiber Cache' Add-On...See Update 33

The Carbon Fiber G2 Pen ('CF2') is a tough, lightweight Carbon Fiber writing pen that uses the popular Pilot G2 ink refill. The CF2 pen is machined from tough, lightweight 2024 and 6061 Alloy Aluminum with an even tougher and lighter Carbon Fiber barrel. 

The CF2 pen cap and components, feature deep, crisp knurling along with a comfortable diameter Carbon Fiber barrel to give you great grip in tough conditions or even with a gloved hand.
The CF2 pen is available in Black Anodized, Bright Aluminum as well as Tellurium Copper and Aluminum-Bronze with the Carbon Fiber barrel. The CF2 is made in the U.S.A.  

The CF2 pen is also available in Tellurium Copper and Aluminum-Bronze with the Carbon Fiber barrel.

Risks and challenges

I have successfully delivered several other projects.

The 'Carbon Fiber Writer' will be made in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which eliminates the issue of dealing with out of state machine shops and shipping logistics.
Production costs and allowances have already been established.

My machinists experience and successful delivery of other Kickstarter projects, gives me great insight to production considerations, e.g. how to design the 'Carbon Fiber Writer' and time effective production and delivery.

The material used for the 'Carbon Fiber Writer' have good availability and are not subject to extreme pricing spikes or shortages.

If I need to ramp up production speed or in the unlikely event I get hit by a bus, I have another local machine shop that will assist.
