Anyone have any idea what shipping to Germany would cost? I have just joined Massdrop, so not sure if there is a way of getting the shipping cost before joining a drop.

Click on "join drop" in the right pane, and it will display the shipping cost to your country (if you've entered one / your address in your profile).

Thanks for the info!!!
If they had a stub nib option I would be in... To bad for me...
Can we get these with a gold nib? I would be fine paying an extra $80 or so to have that. Also, how are these different from Edison Pens? I have an Edison Collier (Steel blue) that I really like.
Is this pen worth the cost? I'm always wary of steel nib pens that are over $100 unless I know the brand is well made. I do like JoWo nibs that are used by other pen companies. It is an attractive pen.
Here's an interesting question/observation. Bexley pens appreciate in value over time, because they are so well made, etc. Since this pen is a Massdrop Exclusive, it will never hit the open market, and thus will never be in play alongside other Bexley pens. True, it is a Bexley, and so will have all the craftsmanship of Bexley pens, but since it is an exclusive, I wonder what the value of these pens will be ten or twenty years down the road.
Hi, when a drop doesn't reach its target is there still an order at the higher price? for example can you still order the Bexely that recentely expired just at the price point that was higher?

No a drop must meet minimums to be successful. And commitment/purchases must be made while the drop is active. Once closed it's a done deal.
No shipping cost?

Doesn't anyone know what the blue cartridge is? What brand and specific ink is it? I thought maybe kon-peki but it's just a little shade off. Maybe it's a dried out KP, but I'd rather ask you folks

Kon-Peki would not come in standard international cartridges, it's a Pilot ink and they have proprietary cartridges. I'm not sure Iroshizuku inks come in cartridges at all.

One can inject Iroshizuko into old cartidges. I have done this and used those inks in my Platinum pens (I collect the 3776 model). I do not know about other people, but I seriously get my rocks off injecting used ink cartridges. The only one I ever had a problem was with Private Reserve Electric Blue. So I bought the official cartriges (international), and those leaked just as much as my injected ones. I literally filled an entire Delta cap. that stuff took a week to get off my hands.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Bexley Imperial Fountain Pen, Massdrop Exclusive and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.

As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 1/25.

We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 1/13.

Just got an email today saying that my Bexley has shipped. A bit earlier than expected! Is this correct or was the shipping email sent in error?
I wonder if this community can answer a question for me on this pen. This may be my first fountain pen, and I'm unsure exactly how the ink fills. Are these cartridges that are local office supply store? And what is "converter"? Is that to convert to bottled ink? Or roller ball type pen? I'm sure that those who know fountain pens know what this is, but the pictures here weren't that revealing to me. Also, one more (as this would also be my first MassDrop purchase), with two days remaining it looks like the $139 level just got unlocked. But there's a button, "commit for $129" -- yet, clicking on that seems to suggest that whatever is the lowest unlocked price is what you pay, not necessarily $129. Now, ten bucks is not the end of the world, I'm just wondering how all this works, so that I can make the best set of choices. Thanks, all.

Not exactly sure what you're asking about swapping the converter. "How should?" If you're asking whether it should be, then I'd say yes... the converter is a bit easier to use and I believe it has a larger capacity. If you're asking how it's done, then both the bladder and the converter are friction-fit... just pull one out and seat the other one. Regarding whether the converter can be locked, there's no need. The mechanism has enough friction in it that it won't move. Plus it's inside the barrel of the pen once everything is reassembled, so there's no chance of disturbing it. Last note on the Pilot bladder: This is, in effect, a vacuum filling mechanism. You squeeze the bladder to force air out, then release and as the rubber returns to its original shape, it sucks ink in. It takes a few seconds to do this, so be patient.

Thanks! That's one heck of a reply you've given :)
There is no dispute with postal workers in Canada...it was settled in the summer and the union ratified the settlement Monday.
If Massdrop Bazaar (bizzarre?😅) doesn't want Canadian orders, fine, but please don't blame it on a non-existent labour issue.
