Will the copper oxidize and look much darker later?
Got one in the last drop and they're simply beautiful. Exceptionally well made and the support from Chris at Ateleia has been equally wonderful. Get at least one, you won't regret it.
Hoping these ship early. Can’t wait.
I would love to see a bronze version of this pen.

The type of bronze that doesn't tarnish, or the type that does?

I don't mind a patina on metal. I have three unvarnished copper pens in various states of patination. At the same time, one that doesn't have to be polished would be nice. So, to answer your question: both.
I quite like my brass one that I have, especially the thickness of the barrel (slightly thinner than Pen Type A/B). I would say that the one major downsode is there is nothing to do with the cap so you really have to keep track of it. Also the threads on the tip for the cap can be a bit fiddly until you get the hang of it.
This is such a beautifully minimal design with a wonderful material. However, I do use a variety of refills myself and I find it rather unreasonable that they are charging $15 for what is essentially a few pieces of plastic to make the pen compatible with a wider range of refills. Seriously, those few pieces of plastic cost 20% (15/74.99) of what an entire pen machined out of copper costs? I can't figure out why the manufacturer can't just include those additional inserts or simply charge at cost for the inserts. I don't see why they have to make money off the inserts.

Honeylemon,
The $15 upgrade is not only for plastic pieces - it includes an extra threaded copper insert with different inside diameter (so that different diameter cartridges don't wiggle around when writing) and an extra refill cartridge to fit this threaded insert. The threaded insert goes through several machining operations on two different machines and as such is surprisingly expensive to create.
The upgrade is normally $20 on my website, so $15 is a considerable discount.

admittedly that is more than just a piece of plastic.... but i have 15 energel refills that i bought for $10 two years ago.
Beautiful pen , but no place to put cap once unscrewed, you can possibly lose it. Not a deal breaker to some, but it is for me.
