    We're all waiting for our regular pens ..we're behind all those people needing zirconium and DLC. They had to have fancy stuff and make us all wait..
    (Kidding.just jealous..he can ship them when he's good and ready.)

    It looks like Will needs more time to get pens ready, maybe another week or so.

    Just out of curiosity, why did you say that? Is there an announcement I missed? I know he was running a week behind, but I thought Will said last week that pens would start shipping this week.

    FYI - I'm one of those "Mr. Fancy Pants" waiting on my DLC titanium Slider!

    I was being sarcastic with my comment. I dont mind waiting...he replied in the comments section that it makes no logistical sense to him to ship some while still assembling others. I kind of agree. Its not a mass manufacturer. I think it would raise the prices for eveyone if the pen gets a bad reputation based on problems with one model.
    Its rather interesting ..if you look at Retro 51 or Cross or even Parker they come out with mainly different finishes each year..they are not brand new pen designs.. it must make manufacturing easy for them.

    RMinNJ: you're no doubt correct I'm sure that the larger manufacturers are enjoying economies and better profits by mainly bringing out new products in the form of different finishes. I'd bet also that their marketing folks know that (a) the collector segment loves it when additional finishes are issued -- stimulates the 'need to buy'; and (b) by adding finishes they can tempt buyers who were not quite enthralled with the existing finishes to finally 'pull the trigger'. Just good straight forward marketing of course!

    L'chaim!

    I think Will still needs more time. I am OK with delays as I'll have one of those coming next week.

    Slider's clip seems like an overkill to me.

    Speaking to my personal preference, it looks like just the right amount of overkill to me. I tend to take the clip off my nice pens to bend them inwards just a bit more for a really tight grip on my pocket. We'll see how I feel about it when I have mine in hand.

    The copper version has a substantial weight. The "overkill" clip will keep it from exiting the pocket and ending up on the floor when I bend over to pick up my grandson. :)
