Then check out CultPens where you can get one under $300 (thats not a typo) w free shipping to US and no VAT. However, the price from my iPhone was higher so it seems to make a difference if you have a PC.

You may be able to challenge them on the price difference, lepoqeju. That sounds a bit slimy if you ask me.

I think you were looking at the m400 Stressman for under $300. The m805 version works out to be $337.50 at current exchange rates and no VAT. But that is still a great price and I think the free leather pelikan case deal is still on.

Massdrop isn't always a great deal. Sometimes it's a storming deal (lamy 2000's for $100) but sometimes it isn't.

 

I have noticed that massdrop seems to screw up nib selections almost constantly. About half of my pen orders from them have received the wrong nib size. And then they can't fix it, because they only have a fixed amount to sell. I only lucked out that the lamy 2000 I bought was an F (I already had an F) but I convinced a coworker to pick one up too, he ordered an F and got an EF. EF was the size I wanted, so I traded him and we got lucky. But I wanted an italix parson's essentials in an oblique medium stub, and I only got a medium stub, which i don't love. I just swapped the nib out of that pen and quite like it, but I'm not the biggest fan of ordering pens on massdrop anymore.

 

I do like other stuff, they can sometimes have awesome deals on inks and pen cases.

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)
