The lava / piston filler medium size price is 450 Euro.

The resin / CC medium size price is 395 Euro.

Something does not add up here... I would expect the resin one to be much cheaper.

 

I'm sure the sums in the "profit" columns of their accounting books add up just fine.

In that case, the resin version is more expensive than the lava version... this is incredible.

Don't worry: I didn't pay that for my HS Medium, thanks to the classifieds forum.

You're right: it adds up just fine there.

I can't understand the reasoning at work here for this pen. Here's an HS in a cheaper material with a basic filling system at a higher price than the premium model......oh, and if you want an xf or a stub then it costs even more. Bizarre!

Does anybody knows if the nib unit is different from the non C/C Homo Sapiens?

Do you mean there is something which allows the piercing of the cartridge in the original nib unit?
