Does this include a converter or not?
" At checkout, you’ll have your choice of ... nib color (black or silver) ... "

You're probably better off buying a retro51. If you want one of a similar style, they have one with a matte black finish
Just received the LAMY AION fountain pen. Better than expected. Do miss that LAMY ink converter. manga
Just received the LAMY AION fountain pen. Works well and is better than promised. Miss that ink converter from LAMY.
So what's the deal with this drop? It shows up as active in my transactions, but inactive when I view the drop page.
OMG the cap rattle on this is design fail. Lamy pls fix it!!
Is there really a nib color choice? No drop-down menu option..
I have this pen. It writes very smoothly, nice smooth starts even after sitting for a while without use. My only problem is that it is a bit bulkier than I like. Also it just doesn’t appeal to me aesthetically as much as most Lamys.
Massdrop can you please clarify? The description states that the pen comes with the Lamy converter, but only a cartridge is listed as being included. Thanks.
Just received the FP and ballpoint today, the ballpoint refill is a huge improvement from the ones in the safari I ordered last month, not sure whether that's luck or they have really improve their M16 cartridges. The FP itself feels like a heavier Safari, but it has good balance and does not become too long when posting like the Safari.
Could I confirm that for each pen, 5 USD was refunded due to a lack of converter?
Package arrived without the converter as detailed in the product listing.
mine arrived without the converter. The drop stated that the converter was to be included

Same for me... no converter. Not the biggest deal since I have a couple of Lamy ones.... but I am still pretty disappointed. Someone dropped the ball when it comes to attention to detail... pretty disappointing to wait longer without that big a discount and still not get what is advertised.
$89 for the full retail price is a bit misleading, the US MSRP is $71.20 pretty much everywhere (Pen Chalet, Anderson, Goulet, etc.)
It's still a savings, but only $12 not $30 as it is made to look.
You can order (some) German pens easily and cheaply from Amazon.de; your US logon and payment will work. (Not all sellers ship to the US, though.)
Mine was 31.90 EUR once VAT was deducted; shipping was 3.43 EUR. With a 1.28 exhange rate, it came out to $45.22.
I've picked up a few other pens at significant dicount the same way; Pelikan, Diplomat, and Lamy discount are pretty easy to find. (German makers on amazon.de, so it figures.) I didn't have similar luck with Italian pens on European amazon sites.
Yep, I THINK I just bought one for $44.02 and it should still arrive before the Massdrop ships. If only I could read German to know for sure. LOL.
If the rattling doesn't bother you then go ahead but I would wait to Lamy fix this issue https://www.instagram.com/p/BfTMTj4gtP-/?taken-by=gentlemanstationer

Agree, the cap rattle is a drawback, but for the rest of the pen, this is one of my LAMY favourites. I like the bulk and weight of it, that is compatible with the Z50 steel nibs (or gold version for that matter) yet comes with their own - takes the black converter that in my experience have worked better than the red. All in all - the pen is an underdog - but the price here is really.. Wow - that's expansive.
The pen does not post well and rattles a bit when capped.

You have to be a post-aficionado or have really huge hands to need to post this pen - IMHO but I have respect for the ones that swears that posting is the way to do it ;)
I have this pen. It isn’t a favorite because it is a really bulky pen and I prefer more slender grips. That being said, I love the way it writes. It is a really juicy pen, starts right up after long spell without use, and is really smoooooth. I have a broad nib.
