  1. I think this just started today. I've wanted to test out some Diamine inks. I think this is a decent way to do it . . . a 5 pack for $25.99 https://www.massdrop.com/buy/diamine-30-ml-ink?utm_source=linkshare&referer=JQZE4E
  2. I'm looking to buy a bunch of empty 50ml(ish) ink bottles(or inkwells, but they get expensive) that have a system like the Levenger ones, in which you turn the bottle upside down and it fills a little inner cup (top well?) into which you can then dip the nib for a nice smooth fill -- thus also preventing having to tip the bottle, reach into the nether regions, etc., when the ink gets below a certain level (and there's usually a LOT of ink left at that level.) Can't find 'em anywhere except at an OUTRAGEOUS cost (such as the TWSBI bottles Goulet sells for $25 a pop.) There are individual used b

    Aurora Minerali On Massdrop

    Massdrop currently has Aurora Minerali in most colors and most nib widths, including italic. The drop runs another 5 days only. The price is the best I've seen by $50. I picked up a red-italic one to match my Green-stub Minerali. David

    Massdrop M805 Stresemann

    Looks like Massdrop is running a drop on the M805 in the Stresemann finish. The price looks OK but is above my current budget. $400 https://www.massdrop.com/buy/pelikan-souveran-m805-stresemann-special-edition
  7. I received the Grifos Nero Muse Bog Oak Wood that I bought on Massdrop. Only after receiving this pen did I realise that I had completely wasted almost SGD 200. The pen is made of 5000 year old wood and has sterling silver accents, which are nice I admit. The shape, design and weight of the pen are also pleasing. But what really irritates me is that the nib writes worse than my Pilot Metropolitan. I have 3 other pens in my collection, excluding the Grifos, a Pelikan M200, an old Sheaffer and the Pilot. The Grifos is not only the most expensive of the bunch, but also the worst. The threads on t
  8. This morning's mail brought the first thing that I have ever bought through Massdrop. The package I got includes three colors: Atlantic (blue), Dublin (green) and Australia (red). So far I've just been trying out the Atlantic in my TWSBI Vac 700. It's a dull color; I can hardly decide if it's gray-blue or more of blue-gray. I knew when I ordered these that they were dull colors, and I'm fine with that. My taste has gravitated toward subdued colors recently. Label reads: Made in Germany by Rohrer & Klingner Leipzig-Co. Shake well before use! To prevent dry residues drain the writ

    Wolf Paper

    (Apologies if this is a topic that has already been broached. I couldn't find a discussion of it when I searched.) Does anyone know where one might buy Wolf Paper? There's a review of it by Theroc on Massdrop and I'd like to give it try, but not as a notebook. Thanks, Ruth
  10. I've purchased several pens from Massdrop and so far two pens I purchased had quality control issues and wondering how everyone else's experience with them has been? Most recently I purchased an Italix Churchman Prescriptor with a medium cursive stub nib; the tip of one tine is higher than the other and on the other tip of the tine it has a dent in it. So not only does it write scratchy but it also doesn't even come close to writing like stub. I kinda screwed myself by waiting several months to ink it up since Massdrop probably won't return it or exchange it. I know Mr.Pen warranties the
  11. This uniquely shaped pen with the absolutely smooth as butter steel nib is back on MD for an excellent price. The amazing 14K nib option is also available. The great Amazon seller Albora-pens Germany also has some options available except for the 14K nib. Albora also ships free from Germany and it usually gets to the US in a week. These are some of the best nibs around from a little known brand and the only "complaints" I've heard are that they are a little on the heavy side and their silk screen logo wears out over time. These are amazing writers in a unique design that people always no
  12. Levenger Carezza Leather Pen Sleeves on Massdrop. No affiliation, but in full disclosure I joined the drop as I always thought those cases looked really nice and look to have more cushion than many other sleeves. They have single, double and triple. I have tried all manner of pen doodads and I think i am just a sleeve person (easy access) and the sleeves I have now don't fit some pens larger pens (though I don't think these sleeve will fit a M1000 or a 149, they do look like the would fit a M800 or 146 or PFM size and smaller). Just a heads up PSA, etc. -- PS. Anyone with one of th

    It Finally Happened...

    Well, it finally happened. Just opened my "massdrop" email from yesterday and found a really good deal (sic) on the Italix Freshman's Notator pen, if you don't mind paying a premium! MSRP - $26.55. Massdrop current price............. $28.99 and, if they get enough buyers........... $26.99!!! Of course you only have two nib choices AND a Schmidt converter is $4.00 extra. Oh yes, and shipping is $2.75 and it will September 30th. So, what do you think, want to pay Massdrop a premium and wait an extra month? Decisions, decisions, decisions!!!! Maybe they will offer a "twofer" for $70.00?
  14. Pelikan Classic M205 White-Silver is available on Massdrop for possible price of USD 127.99 + shipping. This drop is limited to 12 pens. At checkout, you’ll have your choice of available nib sizes, which may include Extra-Fine, Fine, Medium, and Broad. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/pelikan-m205?referer=QPNTJS

  16. If anyone else is interested, I'm trying to unlock the massdrop for Jherbin rollerball set. it includes some jherbin ink cartridges and three refillable rollerballs. Please, if at all interested, request the drop so we can have another chance at it. the set also has a option for more cartridges or a monteverde mini converter. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/j-herbin-refillable-rollerball-bundle
  17. Can be found at the following link: https://www.massdrop.com/writing/drops (If one of the Mods wants to double-check it doesn't include my referral link, I'm pretty sure it doesn't, but would rather not be banned for accidentally having it in there. Thanks!)
  18. Massdrop just launched Pelikan Souverän M600 for possible price of $ 279.99 + shipping. http://dro.ps/b/6gOtkSC I don't have much knowledge of Pelikan pens, so I don't know if it's a good deal.
  19. New drop of Rohrer & Klingner Fountain Pen Ink (3-Pack) on Massdrop. Possible price $19.00 + shipping. http://dro.ps/b/PaztkSC
  20. No affiliation, etc. but I know there are some fans out there of Italix pens. So this is a heads up on the Massdrop of the Parson's Essential. I have always wanted one. I like the Celtic band. Seems like a simple classy pen. Thought I would try the medium stub. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/italix-parsons-essential-fountain-pen
  21. For those of you who signed up to the Kickstarter campaign for the Namisu 'nexus' (and probably more so for those who didn't!), it appears Namisu.com are now co-operating with Massdrop to sell a modified version of the pen - now rebranded the 'Orion'. According to the Massdrop page (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/namisu-orion), the pen is slightly shorter, with fewer threads on the pen cap, and redesigned to allow the cap to post. Nib options have also been changed (EF, F and B instead of F, M and B in the Kickstarter campaign), which I think is a smart move. Oh, and there are fewer, shall

    Massdrop Experience

    Hi folks, Just thought I'd share my experience on Massdrop for anybody who is interested. I have bought two pens from them. The first was a matte black vanishing point. I actually bought this a s a present and then the recipient turned out not to want it. Anyway, I "joined the drop" as the cool kids say on October 13 and it was shipped November 3. It arrived at my home in Canada on November 19. In addition to the $104 US I paid $17 US shipping and $16 CDN customs, so the total cost in hand was about $135. That's a saving, but not an incredible saving, and of course I was not supporting the

    Lamy 2000 (Massdrop) Already Inked?

    Just opened a Lamy 2000 ordered on MassDrop...began my usual "new pen pre-ink cleaning"...and was surprised to find traces of blue ink coming out. Is this normal? Does Lamy pre-ink pistons to confirm they work (then not quite get all the old ink rinsed away)? Seems odd.
  25. Stipula Passaporto - The 2015 special edition for Massdrop Massdrop recently closed a drop for a custom-manufactured Stipula Passaporto. I have one of the FPN LE Passaporto's from a couple years ago, and I have been thinking that a Passaporto would make a nice gift for a couple of my FP-using relatives. I had some concerns about changes in the pen design since the FPN LE's, especially the elimination of threading on the end of the barrel, making posting difficult. Massdrop's agreement with Stipula included specifications for threading and for metal connections between the section and barrel.
