Just received the set. I do like both the ball point pen and the fountain pen. The grip on both are very different. The FP has a rather small in circumference grip (section] that is metal. The BP has a painted barrel that is much wider. For those who prefer a wide grip, you will love the feel and heft of the BP. For those who want an more slender writing instrument, you will enjoy the FP. It does seem to me that both pens in a set should have essentially the same width/girth/circumference in the hand when writing. These do not. Still, Mr. Pen does a spectacular job with the nibs on the Italix brand.
What's the difference between this and Baoer 3035 (which is $1.87, shipped from China) ?
If the nib is something like Jowo nib, this drop worths every cent.
Not very smooth. Neither does it have good flow control. That said, I like the flex
SBREBrown just released a review of this pen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iNoRK4_dDY
While I did request this drop, after watching the review, I'll wait for a different Italix pen to keep my Viper's Strike company.. *whispers* Captain's Commission... English Curate...
I need to work it over, but so far I have to say I'm disappointed. It doesn't flow, it skips, it's scratchy. I washed the nib with soap. It may be my ink, that's the next step to flush and see if it helps. Anyone else have any issues? I have the cursive stub.
Great pen! For the price, I'm very happy. The nib is wider than an every day writing pen (I got the italic one) but easy to get used to. It takes standard international cartridges, short or long. The converter is in the pen and no sample ink cartridge is included so be sure you have ink on hand! It is quite light and comfortable to hold.
You do realize I just had a small moment of panic when I opened the box from this delivery?
There was no note that the included converter was *already installed* into the pen I have just gotten so used to having a pen arrive with the converter and sample cartridge in the package and distinct from the pen itself.
happily, this note is from ,me, and not my cardiologist

On the way, shipped! Awesome! This will be my first "cursive stub" pen. Can't wait to try it out.
For the ballpoint pen does it accept standard parker style refills? Or does it use the G2 style?
Bit of a question - can I purchase one pen with one of each of the nibs so that I can try them all? If not, what would be the best nib for a beginner, and can I swap out the nibs at a later point? Does this use ink cartridges, or do I need a dipping well?
As I'm sure you can tell, I'm very new to the fountain pen scene, but I'm interested in taking the time to learn

Thank you very much for your insights!

I don’t think a regular fine nib is available for this drop, so I’d probably go for the medium.
Solid pen. For the price it's a great addition and writes really smooth. I may just buy another.
Bought this pen in the last drop. Can't recommend it enough, has rapidly become my daily go-to.
Question for @MrPen : just went onto your site and this pen is available for the same price (actually a bit less). Why would I want to buy this through MD when I can buy directly from you? What is the difference?
MrSharkbait
Our international postage is up to £10.50 to £3.50, MD is by comparison £1.97. Any duty requirement has already been taken care of for USA customers. The savings are admittedly slight but then the pen itself is very inexpensive for what you get.
MrPen
Thank you for the clarification.
Lefty, went with the medium nib. I have a variety of >$20 fountain pens. This pen has a nice weight to it. The cartridge that comes with it did a nice draw on my ink (Noodler's Antietam - I have a thing for sepia tones). This pen writes very well, with a smooth nib that doesn't scratch or catch the paper I'm using at the moment (Global Art Materials Quattro 8.5' x 12' grid pad). I would buy another from this vendor. One of the smoothest writing pens in my collection.
Bobster
if you slide the pen accross the page without applying any pressure, does it write?
camelface
Yes, so long as the nib is clean and the ink not clotted.
Who ever is in charge of this sale, Massdrop or the seller, could you please do a sale for the ballpoint version. I'm not a clean enough writer to use a fountain pen but I would love the ballpoint one without having to spend double to get it with a pen I may never use.

As already stated the pen cap can be posted securely.
MrPen
I understand. Thx. Just a thought for future designs.
I’m not familiar with this pen ... massdrop, could we have some measurements on the description page please?

30g weight 13.6 cms long and 1.2 diameter. Hope this helps
MrPen
Hi Mr. Ford,
Does this pen post securely? While the Massdrop photos show it posted, they sometimes post pens for photos that don't post well. Since you personally use this pen a lot, can you say definitively how it posts?
Thank you!
This is literally just a rebranded Baoer 3035 (Chinese pen) that you can purchase on certain websites for about $3 shipped.
That being said, it IS a nice entry level pen, and the Nib options are Nice.

If I join drop, can I pull out?
This pen flows really well. I have the choice of any pen in our range, yet this is the one I keep picking up.
I'm a Left handed writer who has terrible stiff Handwriting and wants to get into the hobby... First of all - What nib should I choose? I also use Hebrew as a second language which is written from right to left, will nib choice matter if I plan to write both in hebrew and english? Does it come filled with ink or I have to purchase a bottle in addition? Thank's in advance!
ElderGoose
it seems to me that you would need an italic stub nib to write Hebrew. See here for a good explanation of the nib shapes: http://www.richardspens.com/index_m.html?page=ref/nibs/primer.htm

Written Hebrew isn't like the printed letters, it doesn't need the wider parts of glyphs. Thus, one can use any kind of pen for it.
That said, an italic or stub nib always looks nice. That said, I have no concept of what it is like to write left-to-right languages (English etc.) with a left hand. ElderGoose would probably do good to buy a regular medium nib Chinese pen like Jinhao elsewhere (e.g., on the 'bay) for the cheap introduction into things, and a cursive stub on this particular drop, to have some variety. And yes, ElderGoose, you'd need to buy a bottle of ink separately.
Pretty decent deal considering that the shipping alone on Mr Pen in the UK is expensive. Anyone have experience with this? The few reviews I've read were all positive.....
