Copper unlocked at $20,000: Get the COMBO! 99.9% solid copper + CP2 solid titanium

"Wait, so it's a solid titanium egg that can balance itself?!" -- Matthew D.

What's the secret to balancing an egg?

Good luck with that

Most companies offer only dull-finished titanium, because polishing titanium is hard work. At Polar Metals, we're famous for our polished Titanium. In fact, we've crowdfunding over $100,000 in polished titanium products so far.  

Speaking of hard work, we recently set our designers on a task to create a titanium sculpture that could balance itself in some impossible-looking way. This is what they came up with: 

Yes, it's a piece of solid CP2 (medical grade) Titanium

Thanks to geometric wizardry, the unique shape of the egg allows it to balance itself. It works even with moderate pushing.

No hidden weights or tricks, just solid titanium with the perfect geometric shape

The construction is CNC milled from a single piece of solid CP2 (medical grade) Titanium!  Each egg is highly polished by hand to reach our trademark finish. 

Titanium has the highest strength to weight ratio of any metal. It is the most bio-compatible metal in existence. That is why it's often used for body part-replacements (especially bone, which can actually grow around it). 

We went through many iterations with the exact shape and dimensions until we had something that could balance, wobble, and still look like an egg.  

The finish is so perfect it looks like a drop of liquid Titanium.

Made from solid pure Titanium, the rounded shape of the egg allows you to apply pressure directly and easily to relieve body tension.  

 It's a perfect stress reliever or totem to keep at your desk.

It has a solid feel and a perfect fit in your hand! 

It is a stunning addition to any desk display. It also has the bonus feature of giving you a 360-degree mirror view of your surroundings.

It's the coolest possible desk ornament around!  

How is it made?

We're now using a precision machining process to get a perfect finish. A large cylinder of  titanium is put onto a metal lathe and carefully worked using a CNC. It is then polished by hand to perfection.

Who is Polar Metals?

At Polar, we seek to spice up your life with interesting and unusual metals in unexpected ways. We've specialized in Titanium, Copper and Zirconium so far!

With your support, we've raised over $115,000 by crowdfunding unusual and interesting metal products. We love metals, and we love the crowdfunding community. We have a perfect fulfillment record with your great support, and we intend to keep it that way!

“I’m so glad to see that your products have been so successful. This new new titanium Gua Sha aid is just what I’ve been looking for.

I’m and expert rock climber and martial artist and treat many others and myself as well. The benefits of your products are amazing. I hope you will continue to look into healing products… lol, Norman” -- Norman T Miyamoto (Titanium Guasha Tool)

Risks and challenges

So far, we have a good fulfillment record with your great support. The shipment of our last campaign starts even in advance. We have a good and stable cooperation with one factory who always manages to finish the production on time with high quality, and we also developed a good cooperation with other three factories which we could use. We have some prototype already, and it looks great.

Hopefully, when we succeed with the help and support of you all, we can start the mass production and you will receive your Solid Titanium Balancing Egg on schedule!
