BAUX is a Kickstarter project for custom machined aluminum pens that use Bic pen parts. Made of Bauxite, an aluminum ore, BAUX pens aren’t really pens at all. They are really just the barrel of the pen, which you combine with readily available Bic pen parts to create your own unique writing instrument. Bic pens come in a wide variety of colors, so you can switch up the look of your BAUX pen whenever the mood strikes. If fully funded, the pen tubes should ship in June and will be available in different anodized colors as well as with or without grooves. A pledge of $23 will reserve 2 pens in your choice of color and barrel style. International customers can get the same deal for $29.
