Guys, unless you are in bed with either Namisu or Bock, you are technically just speculating.
For me... I am very dissapointed, but since is out my control, I only need to sit tight and wait.
Good thing I have enough pens and inks to keep me entertained.
I wouldn't say it's just speculating. Speculate means "form a theory or conjecture about a subject without firm evidence".
We are speculating what could be wrong with Namisu but I think there are plenty of evidence showing that they are not being honest. There are evidence showing that nib is not the only problem contribute to the delay while in the update, they pretty much blamed only Bock. And from what they said themselves, it's pretty clear that they knew this problem far far before the actual shipping deadline and chose to keep it from backers.
And it is a FACT that they are selling on their website and on Massdrop with almost immediate delivery and their explanation is these pens were made before. But they sold the pens on Kickstarter BEFORE any future purchase that will be made on Massdrop or their website. Their explanation makes no sense to me. What does it mean that these pens were made before? If you cannot fulfill the orders already placed, you don't take any other order. The only explanation is, they don't care about shipping the pens they sold on Kickstarter as soon as possible. They are definitely playing with the Kickstarter rules.
I wouldn't say any of these are speculation because there are concrete evidence.
And yes, I have enough pens but I was expecting a great pen maker whom I could buy more pens from in the future. If you look at the comments on Kickstarter, many people were expecting the pens as Christmas gifts. It's just sad.
