About this project
For those who did not make kickstarter launch come to millyanmax[dot]com to see my latest projects and get an M3k pen for yourself!!!!!
Unlike any other machined pen!
There have been a lot of pens lately on Kickstarter, and for good reason. It is a chance to get rewarded with a unique quality machined pen for a donation that is a fraction of other commercial pens.
You will notice right away that the M3K pen is unlike any other.
Update: A truly solid machined case!
For those backers who want a case to match the quality of your pen, I am now offering a case machined from 6061. For those, who have pledged for a pen then just add $25 to your existing pledge. If you want a case only, then select the $40 case only reward. See update 6 for details!
Now backers can choose to mix and match:
Backers have a choice between clear, black, blue, red, green and violet. Now they have a choice to choose individual colors for each of the three main pen parts: Back, Front and Cap.
M3K Pen Unique Features:
- Update: Now there is an optional lanyard slot!
- CNC machined from solid 6061 Aluminum.
- Custom thread design for the cap that acts as a comfortable grip as well.
- Double threaded to allow the cap to be put on with only 2 turns. (With practice, it can be put on with just a snap of the fingers!)
- Unique cap design allows viewing of the killer threads even when the cap is on.
- Double threaded back end for putting the cap on the back when writing
- An optional MACHINED spring is available. Machined springs are not common. And to my knowledge, there has never been one used in a pen. Machined springs are far more predictable, reliable and add another level of quality. See update 8 video for more details.

A pen is something you use every day. So why not have a good quality pen that you can be proud of as well as being a part of helping make a new business happen? Help me buy tooling and finishing equipment to bring the price down to a level where more people can afford this pen.
THANKS for your help!
