    I'm not a woo-woo kink of guy, but there is just something...earthy...,for lack of a better word, about copper that makes me want to touch it.

    I think this Maratac belongs to kaichu dento.

    I like the way the copper looks and feels also, kinda hard to describe. My wife doesn't seem to feel the same way about it and thinks im crazy for wanting the copper stuff. Shes doesn't like the smell you get on your hands when you touch it, but it doesn't bother me.

    The nicest thing about not planning for a disaster is that it comes as a complete surprise and is not preceded by a period of worry and depression

    It seems hard not to like the copper stuff. I think my search for copper stuff has gotten alittle out of control. But I did find that awesome pen with some searching in switzerland.

    Heres a cool copper object, its plated because solid copper wouldnt last long.


    I cleaned it up alittle, it was still in the box labeled $.99 from woolworths. I thought it was a nifty copper object to show off.

    Yes, it's a copper E2C adaptor, posing next to a brass E2C and a titanium E2C, all made by TnC. I commissioned the Ti run, but someone else actually commissioned the brass/copper run, and I jumped on it. The brass adaptor has since been sold; the copper adaptor I darkened using brass blackener, then lightly scuffed with a Scotch-Brite pad, then put into use with my hottest drop-in.

    EDIT: Actually, I lied, I also have some big copper heatsinks I now use as paperweights. Don't have any pictures of them though.

    Two TnC C-series V3 heads are included for size reference, including the copper E2C adaptor shown in my previous photos.

    Very cool! What was the previous application before becoming paperweights?

    CPU heatsinks, passive ones, judging by the lack of places to secure a fan.

    I'm surprised you managed to pry those HDD magnets apart fyrstormer. Wrecked the tip of my finger real good letting two of them get a little too close...

    Not passive, but I removed the fan-mounting brackets.

    Hard drives are easy to disassemble with a good selection of Torx bits. I still have the magnets stuck to nails in my apartment's outdoor storage closet. One of the hard drives has the metal plating stripped off the platters due to a catastrophic failure; I keep it as a reminder of why it is absolutely imperative to keep multiple copies of important data on physically separate hardware.

    Are they a limited edition, or just out of stock?
    I ordered a Copper Tri-EDC in Hi CRI from mac a few weeks ago, and would love to have one of those pens as well!

    Marc Solioz from Copperpen.ch is great. He shipped my pen on friday and it got it following thursday from switzerland. You just have to email him your request and he will hook you up.

    It is indeed a copper light. You can find a thread on it in the TnC Products subforum in the "Custom & Modified Lights" area.

    I'm planning for Green, Yellow, Ice Blue, White (repeat) on the head and
    Ice Blue, Ice Blue, Orange, Green, Green, Orange on the tail.

    It looks good in Visio - we'll see how it look on the real thing.
