We Did It!
Thanks to the support of over 300 backers we reached and exceeded all of our stretch goals! I've supported kickstarter campaigns before and I always get a bit uncomfortable at how sappy they are when the drive is funded... But now I know the feeling. Time to get sappy, When I was growing up all I ever wanted to be was an inventor. I idolized Albert Eistein (I know hes not an inventor), and swore one day my doodles would materialize and be appreciated. Now, I know I didn't invent the bullet pencil nor did I change the aesthetics much. But I am proud to have the original drawing next to the finished piece and I feel I fulfilled a life long dream. And the journey has just begun!
Without Jon at Metal Shop CT none of this would have happened. The work he put into this project further proves his passion to make quality metal pieces. The design elements he implemented were spot on with our original intention and his attention to detail will ensure an enduring product. Thanks Jon, your hard work has not gone unnoticed.
Second, Thanks to the Field Nuts and Erasables Groups on Facebook for their excitement and comments. Their help was instrumental in providing a bullet pencil that is as versatile as it is simple. To all of the blogs, sites and individuals having faith in our project it means the world to us and we promise to not disappoint.
In closing, Thanks to everyone for their support and stay tuned for whats next.
