Today I've joined the happy ranks of Italix Parson's Essential owners. What a pen for the money! And what a nice nib to write with, a fine italic that has exactly the line width and variation I was after. It is the right weight and girth for me and the quality of the finish is lovely (I have the black & gold model).

All in all, very pleased. It has made a bigger impression on me than the Pel 400nn I also received this week, though I do love my small familiy of birds to bits.

I agree. Got mine from Massdrop a few days ago, and I do think that you get a lot of pen for the money.

And If I remember correctly is much cheaper to buy straight from Mr. Pen than Massdrop.. so yes, a whole bunch of pen for the money.  I have three, all with gorgeous exotic nibs (Broad Cursive Stub, Oblique B/BB and Broad Italic 1.3)   :D

Went straight through MrPen myself and had excellent, fast service as others have already reported, quick replies to the emails I sent to Peter Ford. Not sure what the price through massdrop would be.

I paid $63 including shipping and taxes on Massdrop. Direct from Mr. Pen, the price of the pen ex-VAT + shipping would come to $62 at the current exchange rate.

I remember paying approx £30/each (set of three pens).. I might have had free shipping (cause I went over a threshold)... In any case, no wait, came straight from Uk in 3-4 days.
