    First off, apologies for the off-topicness (again), yet wanted to update about something I noticed recently, which was relevant to the thread before (well, sorta, at least it was relevant to my tangent in it, lol)...

    See, I've wanted a writing instrument with a tungsten carbide finish for a while (actually almost 15 years before the previous post), and, guess what? I often check out the ks projects for new writing instrument campaigns with the (shortened url) https://j.mp/ksPens search, yet I actually found this project when searching for the term, "tungsten".

    Not sure if the Wingback items have been mentioned here before, yet the project creator's brought 'em back, all new & improved-like. Now with a Black Steel finish (actually, a tungsten carbide carbon finish, and Black Steel is the look of it)! :D

    The subheading/title for the project says it's:

    (Personalised) everyday essentials with a tungsten carbide surface that's 3.5x harder than titanium.

    I mean, that's pretty much what I was hopin' for with the previous post, so I thought it was kinda nifty! Oh, and I just put the "personalised" bit in parentheses since it's a cool extra, yet wanted to focus in on the other details I liked. Unlike the BOMAPen, which ended up actually abrading the other metal objects in the pocket when I attempted to carry it with some coins and keys, I think it'd be great if the Black Steel Wingback writing instrument'll be able to handle bein' a daily driver carried in a pocket and not get scratched up or scratch other stuff. (From a bluish Genie which looks a lot like that Fresh Prince: "Wish granted!" :p Oh actually, I think Manny tells Sid that particular quote in Ice Age... Huh, mixed-up references...)

    Anyway, wasn't sure if I should make a new thread about these Black Steel items, so just sorta hijackin' (temporarily) this thread to bring up something mentioned earlier, at least...

    :cool:
