Interest Check: Fountain Pens

I am not a collector. For me using a fountain pen is part nostalgia from school days and also my personal way to be good to the environment. I would not use throw-away pens that are made to use a couple of times and then litter the oceans.
My daily pen is a Sailor realo piston filler in a deep ink blue demonstrator from a Japanese shop called the Pen House. The M nib is slightly “architect” in shape and a pleasure to use.
I also write with a Pelikan M1000 with a broad nib and a Nova titanium with a bock gold stub nib.
I‘be always wanted a Pilot in Seirei Nuri urushi. My dream pen is a Namiki emperor in a plain black or red.
I use great sailor inks thanks to Massdrop!

Saw these at a show and they are really cool!
Copper, Brass and Titanium pens
Anybody interested in a click pen machined from Copper, Brass or Titanium? Would fit G2 pilot style cartridge and Parker style. Brush or tumbled finishes. Maybe some anodized Titanium?
Those look nice! Sorry I'm new here, when would they come out & how much for a copper pen?
