@SeadonkeyLove - Did you decide on this pen or no ?
Hmmm if you want the white it's a bit less here. https://www.bigpen.co.uk/en-us/?art=F148590 For those in the UK. I am unfortunately not in the UK.
How much does this cost when it usually goes live?
camelface
is this seriously the price? lol, wasn't worth the wait. can get it for cheaper at various retailers
Got my Pure Black the other day and it is awesome. Unfortunately the plastic inner cap is not glued or fit properly to the outer cap and there is a very slight wiggle. It creaks or clicks when I open the pen and the same when I tighten it, as the parts shift back and forth. Living with it for now. Thinking about getting it fixed or maybe injecting some epoxy somewhere. I imagine the fit will just get looser and looser as the plastic wears.
Try changing site name to Massrise as most of your prices are higher than anywhere else.
Cult pens has these for $71 for the normal models and $117 for the pure black. Free shipping to U.S. with order over 100 pounds / $124.

A bit more expensive than 71$ but yes, still cheaper than this drop.
Hanshi
Yeah, now ~$78 and ~$130 with changes in price and exchange rate. That's the nature of 10 months passing...
Now the drop is a decent deal if you're really looking for the pure black.
A great pen but the prize is a little high. At least European shops I've checked (Dutch, British and Polish) retail them at about 70-100 dollars.

Three options for Pure Black.
Pure Black / Fine Pure Black / Medium Pure Black / Black
Maybe that should be Pure Black / Broad or Pure Black / Extra-Fine.
By the way, I enjoy your calligraphic name/tag, quite beautiful!
Yes indeed, the nibs are great and true to European sizing: fine is a smooth fine line. I have the Croco Brown--love it but again, I don't use it too much because I find the barrel alone to be rather short. I'm a 5'7" guy so my hands are not huge.
The nibs on these pens are some of the very best stainless steel I've experienced. I continue to be frustrated however that photos suggest that the pen is able to be posted. It is a short, though heavier pen and I found that I preferred posting. According to Faber Castell the e-motion is not designed for posting, yet it can be done a few times until the friction fit is worn. If you enjoy a short pen this is a great one! Otherwise, I recommend passing on this one. Oh, as you might imagine, the cap is a fingerprint magnet.

Thanks for that feedback. Did you find the nib to be true to its size? Was the fine a typical fine for European pens?
Sorry it's a very early Sunday morn here. Need my second cuppa for greater clarity! :o))☕️

I have ordered the black and would like to confirm that the black has the black stainless steel nib and NOT the silver. I cant tell from the pictures as one picture shows it with the silver and another with the black. Cheers.
Kushm
Only the all black pen has the black nib as far as I know.
Does it come with the leather case pictured?
nazeem
Hello @nazeemGreat question! Unfortunately, the leather case was an optional add-on from the last drop, and is not available time time around. But you brought up a very good point, I have updated the page accordingly to avoid confusion. Thank you for flagging this and apologies for any confusion!
How does this work, the more people who order a pen the price goes down or is this the price that it sell for?
larry0711
The pen in this instance is offered at a discounted price-point with a further discount based on the amount of people who buy into the drop. Since we've already passed that threshold, the lowest price is now unlocked. Think of it as discount milestones based on the amount of users who participate in the drop.
This pen is crazy awesome! totally in love with mine (in brown wood)!
cultpens.com has these pens at ~$100USD (inc shipping outside of UK, free shipping in UK). The black aluminum one is the only one comparatively priced here.

Mine arrived...very pretty and quite striking. The chrome is extremely bright and shiny which sets nice next to the dark wood. The black wood is a bit darker than I thought it would be... its hard to tell its wood with the grain blending into the stain too much.
Nib is a bit small when compared to the pen... a #6 would have looked a lot better IMO. My broad nib writes well..its pretty stiff but needs time to break in. I also think it needs a bit of a polish, but again may break in on its own. It puts down a nice, broad, wet line... a very Euro broad when compared to Asian broad nibs.
Converter is pretty standard and fits solidly into the feed section.
All in all a good pen so far and I'm happy with it. A few little gripes here and there, but I'm happy with it.
EDIT - 2 months later : Still like the pen, although I'm finding the slick metal section hard to hold onto for lengthy writing sessions. This is more of a note taker, meeting type pen IMO. I decided I wanted this with a finer line, so after discovering that Faber-Castell doesn't sell nib units in the US (rather they make you ship the entire pen back to them) I swapped in a standard #5 Edison nib unit that works very well.
