Where's the price?
To negotiate the best possible price for our members, we must agree to hide our prices externally.



This pen is £14.95 plus shipping at online vendors in EU, and add import and tax, and we should send the pens to you instead. Not a very good deal for us I'm afraid.
I got one of these pens fir $28 from Goulet, and while it is a visually interesting pen that's comfortable to hold, the nib is a little weird. It's not the same nib as that which is on the F-C LOOM. The LOOM is, IMO, an order of magnitude better for just a little more money. The WRITink's nib has a strange downward hook to it that you can't really see in the MD pics, and is a little toothy for my tastes.

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.

For $25.00, this pen is a huge disappointment. Just plastic; nothing even near the heft of a Lamy Vista or Safari (my comparison only, not theirs). No ink or empty cartridge. So, to recap, I received a box with lots of air, cheap plastic, and a bit of metal in it...far less than the quality expected from F-C. If you want starter pens, go buy five disposable fountain pens for your money - like a smooth-writing Pilot Varsity.
Awaiting delivery! While the group's order is on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey now, we've just learned that a minor clearance delay has prevented the shipment from arriving as early as originally anticipated. Rest assured, we've prioritized this shipment with our receiving team and will work to have individual packages turned around as quickly as possible once delivered.
Expect another update from us on 11/9 or sooner if something comes up.

Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Faber-Castell WRITink Fountain Pen 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 11/4.
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 10/25.

Is nib unit removable? like loom/basic/ambition
I think they added a convertor, and can you point out what are the starter inks i can get?
Has anyone tried this pen before? Is the nib the same as on the F-C Loom? If so, this is definitely a great deal, because that's the best steel nib I've ever used, perfect out of the box!

The nibs are black, but there's a little glare in the photos from our fancy flash photography haha. The nibs are shiny black, but will be black upon receipt nonetheless.

Thanks a bunch!
This looks like a fun everyday carry. One question. The description says that it has a black stainless nib. And, indeed, in looking up info about this online, I can see a distinctive black nib. However, the photos here on Massdrop show a silver nib. Can someone from Massdrop please confirm these are going to be sent with the black nibs? It makes a difference to me. :) I want an all black stealth pen. :)
yes, please add a converter

Good thinking, we've added the option to add a converter.
In a forum post I've read that this Fountain Pen's nib sizes are thinner than what the average width would be (the M would be more like an F and the B more like a M, etc.). Can anyone confirm this? If so, i'll definitely buy one.

For one, I've heard that the lang Pen's naturally write thicker than the average nib size. I own a platinum preppy in EF which is a Japanese EF (0.2 mm) and i absolutely love the stroke width so i think i'll go for the EF variant here too.

I also own a Platinum 3776 century M. My FC loom F writes thinner and scratcher than my Platinum. Tastes vary:)
The fact that converter is not included (even as an option) is rather disappointing....

Yeah, i hope they'll still add a converter as an option
sharl
Yeah, I would rather have that than the ballpoint option to be honest.
