This is going to be a little picky but how does a donation to the National Forest Foundation (US charity) benefit New Zealand forests where the wood originated? Also, there were no humans on New Zealand (Aotearoa) until approximately 700 years ago.
Mine came today and it is really nice looking! Haven't gotten a chance to ink it yet but FYI, the EF nib I ordered was just loose in the box. Could be that it fell out of the bag and back into the box when I took the converter out but I nearly threw it away. Not an issue, just a FYI to make sure you have everything before you toss your packaging!
EDIT: Just kidding, the EF nib was already on the pen itself. No idea what this other random nib rolling around is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh ! So this is an extra nib ? You had a medium AND an EF ?
margessw
Yep, that's exactly right. The EF I ordered was installed and they included the default M nib along with it.
I really wish Allegory would stop using pen kits for their pens and develop each pen individually. I get that it's easier this way and cheaper, but the quality that they have grown to reach is high enough to merit developing an ENTIRE pen, not just a tube with the same kit parts that screw onto either end. These kit parts also throw off the feel and balance of the pen. That said, for $70 don't hesitate to purchase one, they are really great pens. It's just that owning more than one is a challenge, since they are essentially all the same. The could save time by just selling the wooden pen body and letting me simply swap the feed assembly, cap, and post lol.

K-oz - Us too! We can't wait till we can grow large enough to meet the minimum investment required to do this. We're looking at a number of in-house and outsourced options for making the hardware ourselves. For now we haven't found one we can make happen yet, but as we grow that will change. Stay in touch and thank you for the kind words!
Why the +$25 for anything but a medium nib?

Are these a standard nib that I could purchase elsewhere (probably much cheaper)?
Thanks for your answer, it wasn’t clear for me either... 😁
Hi all,
We've added international shipping for this drop! We've also extended the drop through the weekend so that everyone has a chance to join. Shipping time is not affected.
Would have loved to get in on this one...but you won't even ship to Canada? Really? I think I'm going to start really limiting my business with this site.

International shipping is now available. Thanks for flagging this!
Shame that Allegory doesn't understand there are countries outside the USA. If this is the way the company views the world, something tells me I should spend my money elsewhere

We've now added international shipping as an option for this drop. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
I'm sure I can "expect a thorough response". I would have thought that "thorough" would involve a response to the issue/s I raised, rather than the ones you preferred to address. At no stage have I said you were lying, and my comments regarding buck-passing were because of your unwillingness to address the issues I raised.
We appear to have very different views of customer service, in addition to being worlds apart on a number of fundamental issues here. Coupled with my earlier points, I'm sure you can understand that your belligerent attitude, tone and willingness to misstate matters don't exactly endear the brand to me as one on which to spend my hard-earned
The comments below from a previous drop that included this pen along with a leather cover and Rhodis web notebook. That was quite a deal.
Can you clarify if international shipping is available?
Mattia
It is now!
Huh no shipping option again?
I didn't get my webnotebook ?
Got the pen, the leather notebook cover but Rhodia webnotebook was missing from the package. Did anyone face the same problem?

The notebook ships from massdrop, the pen and leather cover ship from Allegory.
Got my bundle a few days ago and got a converter for the pen. Inked it up and it is quite nice for the price. The cover and pen sleeve are also nice leather. Overall I think this is a good deal, though it would be nice if the pen came with a converter or there was an add-on. It's not a big deal to order one, though.

Emailed Allegory and they dropped a converter in the mail

Just came in the mail on Saturday. Thanks Chad and Allegory!
I received the wrong item.. I see the receipt of some other person! And no response from Massdrop to my email yet! I did not receive the Rhodia webnotebook either!

Hi all - notebooks are shipping separately. Kruthikarshankar- shoot us an email at service@allegorygoods.com and let us know how the progress is going on getting this resolved for you. We may be able to help speed things up.
Thanks! Chad
AllegoryGoods
I did just now! Thanks!
This was supposed to include a converter, correct? It wasn't listen in the description, but they did say it did further down in the comments here (though on a previous drop of this). Anyone get one? I suppose it might ship separately, just as the notebook does, but I'd be surprised by that.

Thanks for the follow up. Hmm, not sure if I kept the paper, but will look through it. I do have other converters, several, but it's nice to get one with a pen, too.
choiceweb0pen0
Hi all - Anyone missing a converter can email service@allegorygoods.com and we'll get it on the way to you.
Thanks! Chad
Any update? I'm assuming this is still on track to meet the estimated ship date, but it'd be nice to know for certain

You would think that the ship date was far enough out as it was that they'd be able to hit it.

Just got a shipment notification late last night.
Joined at the last minute. I'm more interested in the notebook cover, but the pen looks cool as well and yes, this bundle is a bargain.
The rollerball pen is listed as being +$60 on the description, but when selecting it on the purchase page it doesn't add $60 to the cost. Which is accurate?
it really agitates me when something this simple and easy ship is not shipped to a free trade NATO country.
why can I not get this shipped to Canada?
Is the pen case included?
Also, is the black heavily textured while the browns are smooth?
This is a great deal. Leather notebook is $70 on website, notebook is $16. This is before the pen and possibly the pen case.
If you get one of these pens, for gods sake treasure it, because our kauri trees are falling prey to disease now and in danger of being wiped out :/ I wish Allegory was donating to a tree planting program or other conservation effort here in NZ instead of in the US....
StitchpunkNZ
Also it is currently illegal to ship swamp kauri out of the country (NZ) unless it is a finished product. There are lots of scams to get around this law, I wonder which one Allegory uses...
Can I select the roller instead of the fountain? Only option see is to add the roller as an option for +60
Am I reading this drop correctly? Current price $139, will fall to $69.99 with 10 commits?
Very very good deal.
writerstephen
I paid $155 for this bundle back in early June, with $25 of that for a fine nib. Knowing now what I do, I would not have paid that much for this. (Especially since my webnotebook is still making it's way here, after being delayed by more than a month.) That being said, if that $69.99 price is correct, then yes, by all means get it. The cover (and leather pen cozy) is nice and the wood is very pretty. The pen and nib are pretty standard, but the nib can be smoothed or swapped out fairly easy.
Has anyone received their web notebooks yet? I still don't have mine. Is there an ETA on these?
My Webnotebook didn't arrive with my order. Anyone else have this problem? Is it coming separately maybe? I've contacted Massdrop support, and I'm sure they'll fix it, I was just wondering if this was across the board, or just a problem with my specific order.
robert.harris
Yep, the Webbie ships separately from the rest of the Allegory items. :)
Liz
Ah, good. I was about to ask the same question. Thank you!
An hexagonal grip... really?
Feanaaro
An???
A couple of dumb questions: 1. Judging from the picture, the pen comes with a black ink cartridge - can you confirm this and what kind of refills will it accept? 2. Is there a way I can order this with a converter? If not, is it compatible with any converters?
Thanks in advance for your help!

1. Yes, standard international short cartridges. 2. Converter is included :)
Thanks! Chad
Their editing is horrible, and they are losing credibility.
Jeez Massdrop, this is the third ghastly typo or MSRP foolishness in under two weeks. If you had remote workers, I'd apply to your writing and editing team. Shoddy.
