Forge Solid KILO: Denser than solid uranium

$487,241

Welcome to the ultimate heavy metal

"The weight was a complete surprise. You weren't kidding about how dense it is."
- Nick M.
"Thanks for a terrific Kickstarter idea. I'm giving this to to the foundation of my family - My wife. Symbolic gift for a solid marriage :)"
- Runar P.

It's time to claim elemental superiority with the KILO cube: a solid KILOGRAM cube of aerospace-grade Tungsten.  

Here is a conversation I have almost daily at my desk:

Passer-by notices cube: "What is that, it looks cool/awesome!"
Me: "It's a solid tungsten cube"
Passer-by tries to pick it up: "What the #$%# why is it so @#$@ heavy!!???"

 Why do I need the KILO cube?

  • You are a metal junkie and need a centerpiece for your collection - pretty much the densest thing you can own in this size.
  • You are an educator and you want to shock your students with the density of Tungsten, creating a memorable experience.
  • You want to have the coolest thing in the office - the ultimate conversation starter.
  • You want the ultimate "structure" item to focus on for creative unleashing or meditation

Why Tungsten?

  • 70% denser than lead
  • Denser than Uranium
  • Nearly impossible to melt
  • 4x harder than Titanium
  • 19x denser than water
Tungsten has the highest melting point of any element.  In fact, you can't easily build a container to melt it.  You have to resort to expensive powder compression methods to form it. 

The manufacturing process is truly amazing.  A pressure of 60 tons per square inch is used to create the cube in a giant steel press. 

Tungsten is an extremely rare element (only 100 parts per billion in the earth's crust).

 What people are saying about the KILO:

"This tungsten cube is a great example of what we call a "structure" in the coaching profession -- something that reminds us to bring focus and attention to positive changes we are seeking to make. Be a positive deviant and get in on this cool Kickstarter." - Margaret Greenberg, Author of Profit From the Positive, McGraw-Hill Professional 

"Good Evening Jaime, This is a fantastic project! Seriously something I've been wanting for a while..." - Erik L.

"...I starred this project earlier, but put it into the category "nice to have, but do I really NEED it". Just reassigned it to %#$!, MUST have. Keep up the good work, glad to be onboard." -Tim J.

"Awesome project! Simple and abstract. Love it." - Angie R.

"...I want the 1" for myself and the little ones [mini cubes] will be stocking stuffers for my two little ones (both will be future engineers :-)" - Greg

"Great project, less is more in this case." - Michael O.

"...There has been quite a bit of discussion around the choice of an appropriate centering object to present to the participants. I think this might satisfy most, if not all of the concerns of the group..." - Madeline T.

"...I'm pretty stoked about adding the Forged cube to my desk candy! ..." - Kyle H.

"Thanks for putting this project together -- I was one of the earlier backers and made a pledge immediately when I saw it.  Didn't know this disease had a name -- "metal junkie" :) ..." - Tom D.

If you want to shock yourself and others with pure density, please support the KILO cube and help me make it a reality.

We have built prototypes and have the manufacturing plan ready to go.
Our biggest challenge is time; we have to coordinate all operations so we can fulfill all rewards in time.
