If you are a sucker for Moonman pens, well boys and girls you better get your wallet ready and packed this month since they are releasing two new models based on the picture linked below (from the reddit post here):

I really like both of the model. The T1 looks so similar to the Fine Writing International pens.

Thank you for this information. The M8 appeals to me - I'll have to wait for the details when it is launched. I wonder how much they'll be.

This outfit has certainly been busy and they've produced some interesting pens.

yeah they had announce it a bot more than a week , I had the notice from them. Looks interesting but really not my cup of tea. The T1 is more of a blown up, grown up piston filler of the Kaweco Sport

I think it had more similarity to this pen:

But in solid colors. I might just blow my savings with these Moonman and the new PenBBS coming out.

Guessing to be $20-ish dollars similar to some of their previous releases (M600S, C1 etc.)

My first thought as well. I have expected it to be an eyedropper!

Ditto, although the supplier (freefolkdream on ebay) of the M8 just messaged me to say they received a whole batch of damaged pens and they didn't know when a replacement batch would be available, so my order was being cancelled. :-(

 

I'll try another, but people should be on the lookout for damaged pens filtering through.

Thanks for the heads-up, I didn't buy mine from the same seller, but it might still be defect.

One taobao reviewer noted that the barrel thread insert came unglued. Any other info on the nature of the problem?

 

I haven't received mine yet but it is reported to be on the way.

That's a very bad joke , the coupler do not even had thread to mate to the barrel , this is pure engineering failure , I am glad this come out so early from retail, save many who might otherwise be caught , and thank you this is good reminder that I would had to stay way from this M8 thing

From all I can tell, the M8 is the M6 in new materials. Have you heard of this problem with that pen? I haven't.

Well the material and the finishing might had something to do with it after all what works on the M6 does not translate to automatically working on the M8 ; still a pretty bad engineered parts. Never like these glued push fit style construction ; just too many in build faults

Don't want to highjack this thread, but careful with the Stipula Tocco Ferro.  Mine fell on the floor and it just exploded into small parts.  I do have to say that I then sent it to Stipula and they replaced it with another one, though it took about 6 months for the new pen to arrive.

 

I have a few Stipula Ventidues and a Vedo - they are more rugged.

 

Back to the Moonman M8....
