High quality M3 metal pen made with gun metal. Space age material use on International Space Station
Carefully crafted by hand - High quality M3 metal rollerball pen.
Space age material use on International Space Station
This is one of the highest end rollerball pens you find anywhere. I made this one with a composite material called M3 metal (see about M3 metal below). I specialize in the hand making of M3 metal pens ( see www.etsy.com/shop/TrobeePens/search?search_query=m3&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&ref=shop_search )
I have been looking for some great pen parts that require a longer section of the pen body to show. There are so many great materials that need to be "shown off" more. I wanted parts that were very durable and simple. Simple in design so as not to take away from the look of the pen body but at the same time very high quality. The parts on this pen are exactly what I wanted. parts that are easy to use and will last forever. Also, as important as the exterior is the internal workings. This pen has an awesome "transmission"! To use simply click the end. When you are done...click again. Simple, awesome, flawless, quality, durability are words I can use freely about this pen.
PEN BODY MATERIAL - M3 metal composite:
M3 which is short for Macro Molecular Metal is made up of metal that has been deconstructed to the macro molecular level, re-alloyed and then reconstructed creating a completely new metal composite material. Metal deconstruction requires very specialized equipment that super heats the metal and then shoots it with water, gas or plasma causing it to explode into molecules of specific shape and size. Combining high concentrations of this macro molecular metal with highly refined chemical binders creates a chemical reaction that causes the molecules to crosslink forming a new and in many cases superior molecular structure.
One of the many unique characteristics of M3 is that it is electronically depleted and will not cause electrolysis within its own structure. This means that new combinations of metals, even those combining dissimilar metals are now possible. Scientists and engineers can now create lightweight metal composites that combine the properties of many metals whether they are compatible or not. The founders of M3ci discovered that this technology allowed them to modernize the ancient Japanese art of "Mokume Gane" (which means "wood grained metal") as well as "Damascus Steel". Beautiful “M3 Mokume Gane” , “M3 Damascus Steel” and exotic pattern metals of unlimited combinations are not only possible, but financially viable as the M3 process is much more cost effective than traditional “Mokume” methods.

HOW IT WAS HANDMADE - CRAFTMANSHIP
The material I choose was M3 metal. The pen blank was hand turned on a lathe to get the perfect shape.
The mechanical parts of the pen were precisely aligned and pressed together. This is a collector’s grade pen that will make an awesome centerpiece to any collection or will be a great gift to someone very special.
In short…it is very high end pen and is very cool.
