It's been a long, long time since you've heard from us and we've got lots of news for you all. Since November, we have done lots of ground work and have gotten all the necessary legal and business structures in place. This was significantly more complicated than we expected. Furthermore, during the Kickstarter, numerous manufacturers reached out to us. We evaluated all of them and ultimately decided to switch from our original manufacturer to a new manufacturer. The new manufacturer does everything under one roof from machining, to bead blasting, to anodizing. This will allow far greater quality control than the manufacturing system we had in place with three separate manufacturers handling each process. This will also eliminate the possibility of massive delays should any one manufacturer become backlogged or have a QC issue. However, this tradeoff in addition to the delays from setting up underlying business structure, means that our timeline for manufacturing has been pushed back slightly. We will have the first production samples before the end of the year from the new manufacturer and expect to have our full production run in our hands late January - early February. Once we have the pens in our hands, we expect them to be shipped out within a week or two. We appreciate your patience and apologize for the delay from January to mid to late February. We assure you however, that we only made this change because it will lead to a better product. We will keep you updated frequently (much more frequently) from here on out and hope to have some more great looking pens to show of in the next few days! Thank you all for your continued support and understanding!
