Okay, I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was trying to start a Kickstarter to raise money for a new machine and some shop improvements. Well, that’s not going to happen. My goal was too focused on growing my business, which they apparently don’t allow. Instead, I’ll run the fundraiser here on my website, which means better discounts for you, since I won’t be giving fees to Kickstarter.
I have an exclusive-to-me-for-this-project resin from Bob Dupras we’re calling Belize Cenote. You can’t get it anywhere else. 🙂
If you’re interested in supporting our goal, please read about it here. There’s a link to the ordering page at the bottom of that page (with a few exciting hard to get materials, too).
And I would really appreciate if you shared this project among your fountain pen loving friends, too. The more eyes this reaches, the more pens people get, the quicker I reach my goal and can improve on production and build an office for my wife. 🙂
More big news.
No more nib grinds. I am still tuning every nib that goes out (even if you just buy loose nibs), but no more grinds. I’m happy to send the pen to the nib grinder of your choice, but I want to focus more on the pens themselves, and sometimes I can get stuck on a grind and the time flies away, or the nib flies in the trash and I have to start over. 8)
Thanks so much for your support over the years. I’m looking forward to the next 20.
