    i agree with you on that based on the picture but they said in the OP:

    We have completed our final round of prototyping and are planing to launch a kickstarter campaign this July to raise funds in order to set up manufacturing and cover tooling costs.

    shouldn't the kick starter to start raising funds be started already??? i know it's not time for the finished product but........

    I would like one of each finish, then my pocket could be full of pens.

    I like both #2 and #3, #1 looks too blingy and like a fingerprint magnet.

    I'm with grokit! Not fussed on the mirror effect of #1 at all. #2 the brushed steel is my favourite by far :2c:

    Thought sure, with your Silver Surfer avatar, you'd have gone with the silver.

    I dunno, maybe I am in the minority, but they all lack warmth and character to me. That being said, I would go with #3 if that is our only three choices.

    The Nickel finish looks very slick. I appreciate that it hides fingerprints/scratches a bit better!

    I noticed ZenPen said they have sourced brass with NO LEAD. Can we please clarify what exactly NO LEAD means? As far as I'm aware Naval Brass is called LEAD FREE, yet still contains trace amounts of LEAD. LEAD is not food safe.

    In Naval brass the lead in inert unless you smelt the brass , it will not and can not leach below a few thousand degrees . HOW can that not be safe ?

    The key is how much, almost everything contains "trace amounts" of everything else. Even the air you breathe has trace amounts of toxins:
