If you're considering this pen because you want to try a Lamy gold nib I would say go with the Lamy 2k, you can find it cheaper on amazon and I would argue that you're getting better quality. http://amzn.to/2vmxkX3 I recently got one of the new two nibs from Lamy on an LX and I was extremely disappointed with the nibs dryness. The Lamy 2k however is one of my favorite pens of all time. Buttery smooth and by far the best work horse pen you'll ever own. It out performs all my other gold nibs.
Do you think you could provide a pic of the pen while closed? And I may have missed it but the specs note "pocket clip" which is not pictured, is it? No idea where that is or what it looks like.

It's the clip on the cap of the pen that would hold it in your pocket. Some pens (see e.g. the drop for Ensso Piuma) are made clipless for whatever reason.
The price for the current drop is too high for this pen. Sure, it has a 14K nib, but MB just had an L2K drop for $20.00 less than this a couple of weeks ago. Sure, the Studio is a steel body vs Makrolon, but that's not quite the point, now is it.
If it were $99.99, then we could have a conversation.
Sorry.. i just received this pen from Massdrop. This is my first time having this pen... but i noticed that there's a whole piece of rubber with a small gold screw inside the box... how and where can I put this piece of rubber into? the cap? currently the cap is totally loose... can someone help? Thanks

What was the result??

Got a full refund. I guess case closed.
What does this mean: "the Studio generates a consistent ink flow that requires only occasional adjusting for an optimal writing experience"
I've never heard of adjusting the ink flow of a pen. Can someone explain?

FWIW, I have never once had to adjust the flow of this pen. Never had a hard start or a skip.

basically means the pen is not a workhorse pen you can rely on LOL
I purchased several different fountain pens through Massdrop recently, including Grifos, Italix, and Pelikan. This one is by far the best writing pen of all of them. The Lamy ink that I ordered with it is very nice, too, and even comes with a built-in roll of cotton blotters to ensure a clean extraction of ink into the converter. Substantial, heavy, durable, not too think, cool to the touch. Converter works well, too. I highly recommend this pen.
I've been checking to track the shipping since I got the notification that my pen was shipped 5 days ago, but I'm only seeing that the label has been created. Is anyone else getting the same?

No problem glad to clear up confusion :3
Would be in for a EF nib...This is a great looking pen.
Call me crazy, but who in the world would pay $120 for a pen?

Someone who writes a lot by hand.

There's quite a lot of us in the world. And it definitely doesn't stop at 120.
Please try and have Lamy pens ship worldwide. Pretty Please.
Definitely gonna hold out for an EF nib...gonna be my second FP after my Kaweco Sport!
Is there a nib fit for left hand writers? Or do I just have to use the included one really carefully?
JLEK
You do not necessarily need a different nib, but you would definitely benefit from a quick drying ink. (I've had good results using Pilot and Iroshizuku inks. There are many others known for drying quickly.)
Here's a great guide to fountain pens for lefties: http://www.thecramped.com/fountain-pen-guide-for-the-left-handed-writer/

Thank's for helping me out.
Bummer there's no EF...I have a small notebook and write small. The price is really good. I hope it'll come back with a EF drop!
I cannot recommend this pen more highly. You will not be disappointed--even if you can't get an EF nib. I hear the EF nibs are a bit hit-or-miss anyway. This is a great price, plus free shipping to US customers. If i didn't already have this exact pen (and if i hadn't just bought a Pilot Custom 74 from Amazon), i would be all over it.
Check out the shading I get with my medium and Robert Oster Fire & Ice (beautiful ink):

What a funky ink! I saw on Goulet's how the red sheen can be much more exaggerated. Have you experimented with different paper?
MrSharkbait
I have, but haven't really been able to predictably get a lot of red sheen. For me, it's always been one of those "it's sort of there but only if you don't look directly at it." But, i haven't put F&I in any of my broad or stub nibs, so that might be the issue.
Having said that, the ink is so beautiful and the shading so dramatic, i find i don't care all that much about the red.
In on the drop, but would love an EF nib instead. Would this be possible? do help us check with the vendor - see many others want an EF nib as well
eddieng
Unfortunately, no EF nibs are available right now. Hopefully by the next drop!
Dang, missed out on the EF nibs :( Any chance we can get more?
mukhy0
Not for this drop, but hopefully by next time.
Are there no EF nibs available anymore? I must have missed out... :/
damn sexy pen! but I just got in the drop for 2k! I can't buy another one before even getting the first won
Got my package yesterday ... gods what a pen! Buttery smooth nib, gorgeous finish, perfectly balanced, cap posts with a satisfying click. I have my medium inked up with Robert Oster Fire & Ice; I'm getting shading and red sheen all over the place.
I highly recommend you snap one up the next time this drop comes around.
Just got a shipping notification!!! FedEx, not DHL!
Way to go Massdrop!! A great deal, and reasonably fast shipping. Be still my heart!
I got an email last week with the latest update (order placed with vendor), but how come it's not posted here?
Got the last one!
Sigh. Only a deal this fantastic could make me come back to Massdrop.
Don't fail me again.
Do not hesitate to buy this pen!! Writes like a dream with a magnificent nib! Looks fabulous! Get one!
How many units of each nib size were available? Looks like I've missed out on an EF after just shy of 2/3 of the total units have been sold. :-(
neil.r
We were just able to source 10 more EF units from our vendor. Get 'em while they're up!
Liz
Got one. Thanks for the boost. :-)
Any chance of shipping to Australia?
Rambonobo
Sorry, @Rambonobo. We are still unable to ship any LAMY items overseas.
I got one of these last time. Handsome pen, quite heavy, well made. For me, the distinctive clip is one of the things that attracted me to it. The matte palladium grip is not slippery, but I was surprised to find it hard to completely clean some inks from it. The gold nib is attractive and extremely smooth, bouncy, and wet, but I got an EF and it is ground rather weird, with a somewhat architect shape to it, and nowhere near EF or even F. But I was daring the fates to get a Lamy EF, as they are known to be unreliable and inconstant. Overall, it's a nice pen for the money, though I prefer a finer line. If you like a heavy pen and a broad and wet line, you can't go wrong with this.
I bought this pen the last time it was offered. The price is great. But the pen is outstanding! This nib is just fantastic. I bought a fine and I just love it. The nib has good spring and line variation. And although it is an all metal finish, it doesn't slip in my hand because it warms up with the heat of my hand. Also, it's easy to hold on to because of the shape of the pen. I love it! Great buy.
