Review on pen: inner sleeve separated from the outer barrel. There is no glue at all on it--it was just held in there with a little tension, so the pen comes apart when the cap is removed. Useless. Pretty but useless. I thought Conklin made quality pens, so maybe they just forgot a step manufacturing this one. (Conklin Herringbone Rollerball pen, Deep Sea Blue CK71005)
i have read up on this pen and seen several issues with quality. Pen falls apart quick and is made of inferior materials???

Hi Mehere,
I would be grateful if you could share the information you found. It appears that a few Conklin Herringbone fountain pens are available on ebay at a ridiculously lower price - so I am wondering if the inferior pens you mentioned are fake or clones. I guess Massdrop would be a more reliable source for these pens.
Nonetheless, it is looking more and more likely that this drop would not be successful. I would really like to see this drop again in the future, when fewer competing products are listed on Massdrop.
The only ones worth buying, deep sea blue and the slate grey, are not available.
sbaca
agreed. And they still show them in the main pic. Is MS so lazy now, they can't put up a photo of the actual items available?
Will this take any other kinds of refills besides the Parker/Monteverde? I haven't found many reviews for this pen, but maybe someone with one can help.
So is this a click type or twist pen , or is this a cap type pen? If you look at the smaller photos under main pic the last pic looks like a "cap" pen?

This is a twist ballpoint pen - the last pic is to show the entire Herringbone collection, which is also available as a rollerball pen and a fountain pen (but these options are not offered in this drop).
I am also trying to join the drop but it'll is forcing the refills rather than being an option.

Apologies for the error @hwara, this issue has now been corrected so that you can proceed through check-out without any additional refills.
Dear Massdrop, (1) I have committed to two pens, but two sets of 6-pack Monteverde gel ink have been automatically added to my drop. I can't choose NOT to have the 6-pack, as there is no such option. Please take a look. (2) I would really, really like to choose the Deep Sea Blue option. Could you get the vendor to offer that as an option? Thanks!
Lonelyers
Sorry about that @Lonelyers, we've corrected the problem and it looks like your order has already been corrected.
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer the Deep Sea Blue color this time around as they are sold out with the vendor at the moment. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Liz
Thanks - as soon as you replied to Townyj, I realized that I could choose not to have the refills, so I adjusted the drop.
Is the Slate Gray available..?? I can select it for some reason in this drop. But the description says its not available.
Townyj
Hi @Townyj,
Sorry about that error, the Slate Grey is not available this time around, and we have corrected this in check-out.
Liz
then take it out of the main pic. You suck people in with all the nice colors then say they aren't available.
Best damn writing instrument I've ever laid my hands on. This thing is worth its weight in gold! The only thing I regret is not getting the other colors from this collection...
Got mine! Initially I was worried from looking at the photos, that the build quality might not be all that good. But now with pen in hand, the quality looks great, the design is very unique, and this makes a good addition to my collection.

Hi all -- Just wanted to let everyone know that the drop has been extended for two more days.
We've seen a flurry of recent activity and wanted to give the opportunity, for those who already joined or committed and those who haven't yet, to have this drop reach the lowest point.
We'll work with the vendor to make sure the estimated shipping date remains the same.

Good plan! I bought.
How does the ink work in these pens? What is the method of refill? Is there some kind of cartridge or proprietary refill needed?
curtis.f1
Per the description, it "Accepts Parker-style refills" which are widely available.
curtis.f1
Like @Gfyss mentioned, the Parker-style refills that this pen uses are widely available from several different brands. To refill the pen, just unscrew the barrel section by twisting it counterclockwise.
Any plans for the removable cap to be in a drop? These twist actions are just not my thing.
What is the collectability value of this pen? Thanks
Mehere
None. Check eBay for past sales, some go as low as $35 new.

I've been told that the best new-item deals on eBay are virtually all clones. Seems every time I look something up there, it's not a bargain, or dubious as to origin. Worst case with Massdrop is I don't get a bargain, but that's pretty good for a worst case.
Well, here's an official vote of interest in a fountain pen version of this drop -- especially if the price difference is similar. I've been looking for a good deal on a yellow Herringbone!
rdominick
Hi @rdominick -- Thanks for a great suggestion.
I actually talked to the vendor about the fountain pen, but they only had a limited supply of a couple colors (not yellow) so it wasn't feasible. I will inquire about available stock again soon.
rdominick
I second this! I have been wanting the herringbone fountain pen in orange or yellow for quite a while now.
