We have a lot of great news to give you. Since the last update, we received the final samples from our new manufacturer. They look and feel absolutely wonderful. The tolerances are tight and the threads feel smooth. We’ve finally honed in on the exact finish we want. It is refined and beautiful. The pen feels good in the hand and is even more pleasing to the eye; all the while, the finish compliments the design without overpowering it. If you’ve ever had experience finishing aluminum, you know how incredibly tricky it is to get right. We’re very happy we have found a finish that is so good you don’t notice it; it just feels right. We know this process has taken longer than any of us wanted, but we wanted to make sure every single detail was perfect before we ordered the pens. Furthermore, we have also improved the packaging. We added a polyurethane finish to the wood boxes and introduced a few more steps in the manufacturing process to avoid the rough feeling and poor finish quality some reviewers reported. These components are now in the process of being manufactured. We expect them to arrive to us mid-late February. Once all the parts arrive, we will run a final quality control check and make sure everything is absolutely perfect. If all is well, then we will assemble each pen by hand and ship them out a few days after. If you have any specific questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We appreciate your ongoing patience and support and we look forward to finally realizing the ZERØ!
