I heard on the Pen Addict podcast there was a production delay or something.

The latest update, dated December 8, says:

 

1. They've hidden the intersections between the parts (with pictures -- it does look better).

 

2. Talks about their sample packaging.

 

3. Provides the following information re: shipments and such:  "The target we have set for our machining supplier is for half of the parts to be finished before the holiday period (19 [Dec] - 5 Jan our factories are mostly closed here in the UK) and the rest in early January. Around 150 pens have been produced so far but we now have an extra two machines at our disposal which will increase productivity dramatically. So we're looking to start shipping around the 15 January - 31 January which unfortunately adds a couple of weeks to the expected shipping date we mentioned previously."

 

Now, whether the pens will actually ship then -- I dunno. But that's the latest official info.

It's Kickstarter...the best course of action is pay your money and then forget all about it.  That way, instead of torturing yourself over missed ship dates, you get a nice surprise when it lands on your doorstep!  ;)

Thanks.  I knew it got delayed but didn't see the part you quoted above.  That's what I get for a quick skim.  I'm not torturing myself over delivery.  I half way don't expect it to ever show up.  I've had terrible luck with KS.  :P

Sounds like you bought a Pebble too.

Sorry, not bought.  "Funded".

I wondered how long would it take to just line up a few people and tell the 1st guy to screw in the nib then:

 

2nd guy: push in the converter

3rd guy: dip the pen in ink

4th guy: write a few lines

5th guy: put pen in USC and pull out cleaned pens in USC

6th guy: screw on the rest of the pen and put it in a pile.
