The group's bulk order arrived earlier to our warehouse in New Jersey and many of the individual packages have already shipped back out. However, upon taking inventory of everything received, our team was made aware of a backorder affecting a small handful of units. Rest assured, we've reached back out to the vendor to resolve this hiccup and expect to have the remaining units in our warehouse shortly.

Hello, all~ @pyfgcrl @dholik8503 @Zagmeister @mr.derekWe hear ya! The Grand Bleu is now added at checkout for an additional $155.00, changes should be reflected shortly. There are limited availabilities, so grab 'em while they're hot :D Enjoy!
@mr.derek I do not know for sure, but I saw that as well, and it absolutely does look that way.
i have been using this pen for years
Also, is there any chance the Léman Grand Bleu http://store.carandache.com/int-en/832-silver-plated-rhodium-coated-léman-grand-bleu-fountain-pen.html

could be added to this drop?

How about it, @elimelendez ? Lots of interest in the Grand Bleu color option. I think this drop would blow up if you could get the vendor to swing it!
pyfgcrl
Hey @pyfgcrl, do you know if they changed the thread for the cap on the Grand Bleu? It looks a little different now - a bit wider maybe? Thanks!
The newer Caran d'Ache Leman black with gold tone fountain pens have a gold grip section, see below. The picture on your site shows a black grip section. If I were to order the the black with GT trim which pen will I get?

That's correct, the current Léman 4799.272/282/292 (Broad/Medium/Fine) have a gold grip, not what's pictured on Massdrop. I'd also like a confirmation that it is the current model on their site http://store.carandache.com/int-en/52-leman-plume-noir-ebene-plor-b.html that would be shipping for the Black/GT Trim option.

Just an FYI, I know this is an expensive pen, however if MD does another drop for the pen I will purchase another.

Hello @dholik8503Glad you are enjoying this pen! Don't forget to hit the request button to be notified via email if we decide to bring this drop back :)
Received my turquoise silver medium C d'A Leman today. What an elegant and beautifully engineered pen. It has a nice balanced weight in hand, excellent smooth ink flow and the o-rings produce a soft tactile sensation when attaching the barrel to the section. The lacquer is gorgeous. Thanks MassDrop for helping me find my perfect pen.
The vendor informed us that the second batch of the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse. Based on the tracking provided, the order is scheduled to arrive 4/19.

Just got mine with a broad nib and love it! Came with a Caran d'Ache converter (unlike other converters I have used, this one screws into the feed portion, which is nice). I am experimenting with the cartridges that cam with the pen--it requires two cartridges (one is placed with feed side down in the barrel, and then the other cartridge is placed on top with feed side up--then screw on the feed and nib and you're good to go). Writes like a dream on Rhoda paper-and my experiments so far (with just a "medium blue" cartridge provided) my perhaps explain something about the Caran d'Ache inks. I had purchased the Ultra Violet and Turquoise Inks (another drop) and felt they were not saturated enough for my taste. However, using the Leman pen with broad nib, the pen and leaves a wet, saturated medium blue line which dries quickly to a beautiful translucent blue. Wonderful so far....will try the Ultra Violet and Turquoise next. :)
The first batch of order arrived in the warehouse earlier today. People whose order arrived should have received an email with tracking.
The vendor is currently working on preparing the second batch. Based on current estimates the second batch should be shipping early next week. We will make sure to update the group once the complete order ships.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 4/18 or sooner if something comes up.

Hi, I have this pen, and the model that this particular one replaced. The older model with the plastic holding section as opposed to the new metal ones, is way better. Way nicer grip. Caran D'ache, please bring back the old section, its way more grippy compared to a smooth metal section I paid 380 Euros for it in 2013. So the prices of these pens are increasing!!! They are very nice pens, you can definitely see and feel the quality. Anyone who buys these (the old as well as the new). Oh and before I forget, the old clip cap was something to behold as well. The new one not so. Here is a picture of how the old ones are http://www.pensplus.co.uk/PBProduct.asp?ItmID=12742279
I gather no converter is included. What do current owners use?

Thanks Liz for the revision. I have learned over a lifetime of purchases, that if it's not in the specs, don't expected it. I just ordered the Turquoise.
C/C's have some advantages - they clean up more easily and travel better, but at this price point, I am surprised to see C/C. I guess this is a useful "traveling status symbol" like if you need to fly somewhere and impress folks with your fancy pen without having to worry about emptying it before you fly and then refill it when you land. Seems like a fairly limited scope application though!
Anyone have trouble with their pen? I can't get mine to write very well, will use a pen flush and try a different ink but so far pretty poor writer.

Thank you MD, great job and Happy New Year (-:

Just checking on any updates - thank you.
I also have an older pen by Caran d'Ache and it's time to add another. This is the closest quality to any of the French made S.T. Dupont $1K pens, but made in Switzerland. Hands down better than Pelican and a couple of cuts above the top-of-the-line of anything in the Mont Blanc collection .
I think that MD is not advertising this offering as well as it does others! I can guarantee you that the price is right and the selection is ample. Why this offering is stumbling? Beats me....!
Zagmeister
This is a great buy for a great pen but I can't justify $480 right now.
