Kickstarter: The Contribute Project

Heads up, pen lovers! There's a new pen on Kickstarter right now that's pretty darn cool! Check out the Contribute Project:
The Contribute pen project was started by Dustin Faddis of Faddis Design.

Believe it or not, this pen is actually made of concrete and you can have your pick of colors - black, blue, green, grey, red, white, or yellow.
You also get a little button that is magnetized, either with a circular or square center. This can be clear anodized, 24 kt gold (wowzers), or one of the concrete color options. Have I ever mentioned how much I love magnets? I'm a little bit obsessed with them. I'm fascinated that this pen includes magnets. Magnetic caps are one of my favorite things ever.
Certain pledge levels also include a hardwood/exotic hardwood case for your Contribute Pen. It's a pretty spiffy storage solution.

Pledging starts at $5 and goes to $150 (or more). There's several pledge levels, depending what you want of course.
