First, this is a really great looking pen, overall. My only comment is possibly subjective, but I would expect the most minimalist pen not to have 2 logos on it. I think the one on the screw is plenty–and is actually a nice touch as there is already texture on that component,–but the one on the barrel upsets the cleanliness of the design for me :-(

@sholtaway yes, I was thinking about that too. but I made 3 variants before and everybody who saw them said that variant with two logos looks the best and I think the same.

@artem_starostenko Must be subjective, then, I suppose. I'll stick with Rotring for now but thanks for the reply!

This is a blatant, obvious copy of the Ajoto Pen (http://www.ajoto.com/). Product Hunt shouldn't be involved in promoting those who profit off of others work.

@dowdyism may be for the first look, as it minimalistic and have screwing mechanism. But our pen was made from snatch, you can see pen from where we started on project page, which was made mor than 20-30 years in USSR

This reminds me a lot of the Ajoto pens (http://www.ajoto.com/tools/the-pen/) which was also on Kickstarter a few years ago.

@artem_starostenko I should have clarified that I don't mean that as a critique necessarily, The Sens Pen is also a fraction of the cost of the Ajoto. I think what I enjoy the most with Ajoto is the overall lack of branding. The sens Pen seems to have 'Verge' written on it more than I like. (eg. http://shared.t-bryant.com/fQHu)

@_taurean This is the same thing Spencer told, before making brand logo on it I was thinking the same, the pen was looking too boring. Evrybody who saw them with and without logos said that they like 2 logos. Also logos are really small, as this is the macro photo.

@artem_starostenko I may very well be an outlier, but that's the main thing that would prevent me from being a customer. One simple logo is fine, but three + the logo on the case is just too much (for me).

Incredible looking pen, I'm just not a huge fan of the over-branding.
