Why would I buy this from massdrop when it is 66 bucks with shipping from the manufacturer?

got mine in medium stub directly from mrpens. great juicy/smooth pen, maybe a bit too dramatic for daily writing, but quite a meditative experience when you just lay down words with this pen. the least expensive pen in my favorite pens
Once again cheaper, and faster, to go through the source instead of Massdrop.

For me it would be .30$ cheaper since I live in the U.S. but you bring up a valid point.

awesome pen, it enables me to skip all other pens before buying THE PEN, Pelican M800
Any writing samples of different nibs?

We weren't able to get all the nib sizes for a writing sample, but the Parson's Essential uses a similar nib and is a good indicator of the different sizes/styles available:

FYI, I just purhased the same pen for 51.33 euro ($68.189), directly from mrpen...

Does anybody know what sort of nib is on these? Clearly some sort of #6, from comparing to the bock #6. The website says it's a German nib, so I'm tempted to think it's bock from the look of it.

I ask because when looking for a replacement nib on their website, they only seem to sell the whole section, which are only £10 cheaper than the pen itself...

Anybody know of a cheaper nib that would fit this pen?

Where is my pen
By the way, you should view the video by Stephen brown, provided us by BarryB. He does a thorough review of this great pen.
I bought a burgundy pen on the last offering. The fit and finish is perfect. It's a heavy pen with a brass body, and big shiny cap that screws on. I like to write unposted, so the big heavy cap, doesn't bother me a bit. When it first came, I wasn't too sure if I would like it. The thing is big, but absolutely beautiful. Once I inked it up and started writing, I was hooked. Unposted, and right out of the box, this is the smoothest writing, well balanced steel nibbed pen I have in my collection, including pens with big names and price tags many times higher. It is incredibly smooth, and an absolute dream to write with. The Mr Pen website says that this is a very wet writer. I can confirm that.
This pen writes very wet. Once I switched from Levenger Empyrean, to a dryer flowing ink (Montblanc midnight). Once I gave it the ink it wanted, the pen became a super star in my book. No longer the gusher, the ink flow immediately slowed right down, as though it was just waiting for me to give it the right ink. It puts down a very nice, well defined, and easy to control ink line.
I bought a meduim nib. If I had to do over again i would go for a fine only because of the healthy ink flow in these pens, and my fondness for some inks that are just too wet to use with this medium nib. The pen is heavy because of its brass lacquered body. But because of the way the thing is balanced, it feels weightless in your hand.
If you like a heavier pen you are going to love this guy.
has anyone compared this with Italix Churchman's Prescriptor? Is the smoothness of the nib (hard start or skips) different? And is italic preferred for everyday writing? Thanks.

My pleasure. And in case you haven't already seen it, here is SBREBrown's independent review of the CC:
I have an Italix Churchman's Presriptor, and I love it. It's a big pen and I had my doubts at first sight. After inking it up and putting it to paper I found it very smooth, with a nice steady ink flow not a gusher like the Captains Commission. It's a long pen, with a thicker barrel and section, but it'ssuprisingly, very comfortable to write with. Not heavy at all. I don't post my pens, but this one does post. It has a built in system to connect the cap with the "dumb" end. You just have to push on the cap until you hear the click, then it's on securely. I like this pen a lot, have no problems recommending it.
