I've been writing with this pen for a while. It is incredibly smooth. No complaints whatsoever.
Much better selection and prices now on Levenger's website. Ex; see below! Much bigger selection also. This is NO deal here folks.
The Checkmate is on sale for $43, and a few Classics are on sale for $55 at Levenger. https://www.levenger.com/PENS---REFILLS-8/SHOP-BY-BRAND-34/LEVENGER-275/True-Writer-Checkmate-Fountain-Pen-FMB-13770.aspx
Using Java pics as clickbait this time Massdrop?
How does one know which name goes with which color?

In the drop description, the individual pictures under Options are labeled with their names if you click on them to view at full size.

Thank you

Just received their new catalog all pens on sale 30-40% off through July 16, 2017. Thanks for the info.
6/16/17 These are on sale now at Levengers from $49.00-64.00
Does this come with a converter?
I notice that the stainless steel nib has an iridium point. Is this unusual? How does it write differently than stainless steel without iridium?

I think part of the issue is that Levenger is not a dedicated pen company. They do manufacture their own branded pens, and resell many others, but they also sell many other types of "lifestyle" products. Their target market Is not, I don't think, heavily experienced fountain pen enthusiasts. For one thing, their most expensive branded fountain pen (the True Writer Select, at $159), does not come with a gold nib, but rather a steel one. Point being, maybe they're trying to use "iridium point" as a marketing gimmick to less experienced users. Just a theory. Btw, I have a Select and it's an excellent pen. I also very much like the TW Classic offered in this drop.

With the exception of stub nibs just about all steel nibs have an iridium point. That's the ball at the top of the nib where the pen touches the paper. It is formed from rare, hard metals, not always iridium. Without that tip the pen would be scratchy.
Be aware, it looks like the Classic Crimson isn't being offered in this drop ...
Geez, If you're gonna break my heart and not offer it in this drop, the least you could do is remove the picture from the drop page .. ;)
Did anyone else get broad nibs? I got mine but Levenger's broad isn't what I would normally consider "broad".
Any word on when this drop gets rolling? No emails, no posts so far :(

Still waiting for a sign

yay - looks like it will arrive before mothers day
I received this message;
"While you wait for your order to arrive, get to know the people you're buying with by joining the discussion."
OK, so I'll go first. My name is Tim and I buy too much stuff on Massdrop.

Me too....It's addicting!
Does the pen come with a converter?

Yes, each pen includes a converter.
The True Writer Element is on sale on levenger.com for $59.95, less than the price of this drop, $56.99 + $14 = $70.99. I'm not sure about Levenger shipping costs, though. http://www.levenger.com/PENS---REFILLS-8/FOUNTAIN-PENS-831/True-Writer-Element-Fountain-Pen-13316.aspx

I see that the pens have an interchangeable nib, but not any information on what the nib size is. Does it say the size anywhere on the nib?
Sir_Meta
The nibs are interchangeable with other Levenger nibs; not sure if they're interchangeable with other brands. If I had to guess, I'd say they're close to a #5 size.
I just wanted to say that these photos do not do these pens justice. I purchased the Classic Blue Marine pen in a previous drop, and it has a gorgeous depth to the glimmering undulations within the resin. A really beautiful pen for the price, and it writes well too! Very tempted to buy another one in a different style.
I don't see shipping listed anywhere. Please advise sending within USA.

Massdrop have (annoyingly) removed the shipping prices from the drop pages. You'll have to press the "Join drop" button to see it - it'll be shown before you have to pay.
Is a converter included with the pen? The description just says that it is compatible with a standard converter, and one picture shows a converter, but it doesn't mention one in the specs.

I believe all the True Writers come with a converter.
I just received my Levenger True Writer yesterday. I inked it up and am pleased for the most part. It is very pretty but I am disappointed that the cap does not post well. It sits VERY LOOSELY on the pen and makes me uncomfortable when I'm writing with it. I don't want to lose the beautiful cap but I really prefer writing with the cap posted. Any suggestions from anyone with more experience with fountain pens or this particular style? Or do I have a defective pen?
If it wasn't mean to post they should have put this is in the description because I'm not happy with it the way it is.

I haven't received mine yet, but I always write withthe cap posted. After many years of writing and drawing, my eye needs it for perspective.

I had to return the pen. I was too unhappy with it. I purchased another Levenger True Writer from an eBay seller that posted perfectly and was at a better price. I hope that mine was just "defective." But if yours arrives like my first one did, perhaps you should ask for a refund.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Levenger True Writer 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 1/20.
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 1/11.

FWIW, Levenger is offering 30% off through today 12/31. A true writer classic (classic blue marine, classic red, classic smoke) can be had for $53 plus shipping. Not sure how it works out for the other models. Considering massdrop's legendary glacial pace, you're likely to have your pen weeks earlier buying direct.
The majority of the group's orders have shipped. Community member's whose order hasn't shipped will be contacted by our support team shortly.

I received my pen yesterday. I ran some water though it as their site suggested. Got it all dried out, then loaded it with Lamy Blue ink. This is my first broad nib. I think I like the thinner line better. But I think I'd like this more if it wrote all the time. I have a lot of skipping and non-start. Pressing harder gets a line, but then it's even wider and that's not for certain that I'll get a line. Posting photos. I'm very interested in any advice or help. I love the way this pen looks, it's light, about the same as my Falcon, the Falcon looks classy, but the Java Truewriter, looks very very kewl. I hope to enjoy it if I can get it to write better.

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.

You can expect an update from us on 9/22 or sooner if something comes up.
