Kickstarter: @KarasKustoms INK Fountain Pen

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh yesssssssss. It has happened. The very awesome Karas Kustoms (makers of the super cool Render K, Bolt, RETRAKT, etc) have come out with the ultimate pen... yeah. It's a fountain pen. And it has incredibly sexy colours to pick from. You cannot miss this Kickstarter campaign!

INK is a machined pen that comes as either a fountain or rollerball pen and is manufactured in the USA by Karas Kustoms.

They also offer free shipping worldwide, so there's no excuse not to get one (or ten) for yourself. Have a look at the great colours you can pick from! And good luck picking.
Speaking of colours... the fountain pen or rollerball pens are available with an aluminum, copper, or brass section. 
The nib is a stainless steel #5 nib, made by the German company Schmidt. The nib assembly works with international standard ink cartridges,use bottled ink with the provided converter. The rollerball version uses an included capless rollerball refill,  manufactured by Schmidt (p8126, black, 0.6mm). Or you can use a standard Parker ballpoint compatible refill, including the Fisher Space Pen refill. 
Pledges start at $60USD (move fast, they early backer pledges are going fast)!! Check out the Kickstarter page here!

I have been able to fight off the urge to purchase a Karas Kustoms pen so far; they have been rollerballs (a man must maintain his standards).
Well the barrier has been lifted.
I am a backer for all three versions of the new INK pens; aluminum, brass and copper. Fortunately we have until January to decide on the colors that go best with the different grip section metals.

That's a dangerous invitation for we crazed pen fans :)

LOL well, they've sucked you in with the Ink huh? I couldn't believe it when it was announced!! And of course, how could you possibly pick between the aluminum, brass, and copper?? I'm surprised you didn't get ten of each so you could have one of each colour in each section...

Wait, that is an option? .....
No, I need to hold onto my life's savings a little bit longer; Anderson Pens is now carrying Visconti pens and inks.
