I haven’t been backing a lot of pen projects on Kickstarter lately, as per my desire to ratchet down the buying, BUT today I backed Doug Mann’s “Custom Handmade Pens” project.
Doug hasn’t asked me to plug his project and I have no prior experience with Doug, so proceed as you see fit. I just thought this project was worth a quick mention.
Doug’s from State College, PA and makes pens using traditional pen making processes combined with 3D printing technology. Interesting.
He uses reclaimed wood (as you’ve probably gathered from the name of the project) like:
- Game-used MLB Bat Wood
- WWII Crate Wood
- Wood salvaged from the mountains of northeastern Kentucky
I like wooden pens, especially those with a bit of a story. Doug is making rollerball and fountain pens available as rewards.
If you do nothing else, give his video a look. It made me chuckle out loud. (No spoilers here!)
Doug’s project certainly appears to be worth a look. Click HERE to do so.
