I've never actually heard of this series but they look pretty nice, and platinums write pretty well too.
Thought I'd share :)

It looks like the 3776 Briarwood - I have a similar pen (Yakusugi wood) and they are very nice writers. Only issue might be that you can 'dent' the wood but that's the case with almost every pen. (Ironwood being the notable exception...)

I should probably clarify. I've heard of the 3776 series, and have the blue one myself.
I just didn't know they offered them in wood :)

Thanks, the clarification does make more sense. Not my normal level of brand, yet came across it while perusing  Goulet Pen Company website. In fact, just inquired regarding extra- extra fine nib and was told nibs are Japanese manufactured; Therefore, an extra- extra fine nib would be far too fine for me. In any case, thanks for the clarification, I am sure others will appreciate it. Be Well. Returning to celebrating now.

I don't remember exactly but it was around $250.00ish IIRC.

Looks like it did not make it to whatever the lowest price. There were 20 people who requested it. Believe its final price for those 20 was whatever the initial price was for the drop.

I think the drop had a maximum of 20 buyers.  I hadn't seen a max like that before, but I just recently started watching Massdrop.  So it's possible it reached the end.

 

EDIT: Just looked again and it's 14. "This drop is limited to 14 total units."

 

I remember thinking, if they had a double broad, I'd jump on it.  It was a real good price.

It reached the end time frame end of whatever the time for the drop itself; it no doubt made its initial price. There was a high, middle and lowest price according to the number of people who participated in the drop. It probably made the first price. In order for it to have made the "real good price" there would have had to be plenty more than 14 people or even 20 people.

The Briar 3776 can be had for $234 from Engeika (no affiliation yadda yadda). The MASSDROP price would have to be significantly lower to make it worthwhile, so it would be good to know what the actual final price was (if anyone knows).

So what does this note mean on the page?

 

"Note: At check-out, you can select Dark Briar or Light Briar with Fine, Medium or Broad nib. Light Briar is not available in Broad. This drop is limited to 14 total units, please check the Options page for remaining color/nib combinations." 

 

To me a "unit" would be a pen.  As in they're only selling 14 pens.  Maybe I'm wrong.....

Nope.  And they sold out.  So if 200 people ask, maybe they'll get 14 more...
