September 29, still no inks. Not a happy camper
When are these inks shipping? This is my first go around with Massdrop, it from reading other posters, it’s as though the majority never receive the order!!
You guys have to consider that my order placed in March hasn’t arrived yet.
I believe this MD is a complete disaster.

I received my inks back in June

Mine finally arrived yesterday. It took almost four months :-(
Using amazon, for most of combos of ink this drop isn't worth it at all. Edison inks ~ $20. Pilot ~ $18 Mont Blanc ~ 22. So basically unless you are buying the most expensive inks, this drop, after shipping, is more expensive than amazon. Also there is the added benefit of not having to deal with MD service. This drop is extremely underwhelming, MD needs to do better to earn my money. Tldr: you only save $5
How is this one different from last time when our order was cancelled after a 3.5 month wait?
Also: "Estimated ship date is Sep 26, 2018 PT."
That's ... (hang on a sec, counting on fingers) _two_ months from now.

after 2 prior cancellations, the latest drop actually delivered back in June
Huh. I was just informed last week that MD couldn't possibly fill my order and was issuing a full refund. Now the drop is live again.
Not a fan of the games MD.
Same here, friend tells me they got a shipping notice, but I haven't heard anything.
I'm in no rush, so I'm not too concerned, but MD isn't doing itself any favors with the information blackout and general sub-par customer relations on this drop.
The delivery date is over a month, but there is neither shipping notice nor telling what is going on. If the shipping is delayed like this, isn't it proper for the MD to send us a proper notice with sincere apology?
I think the MD went on a summer vacation.
Still waiting for a shipping notice.
Anyone else still waiting for shipment? I still haven't received any updates.
This is not one of their stellar successes.
(Still haven't received my shipping notice, glad to see that at least some of you did)
I got a notice that these have actually shipped.
The estimated shipping date of the latest drop was May 30th, but not shipped yet after almost 3 weeks.
Any updates?

Mine actually shipped yesterday so yours might be shipping soon if it hasn't already.
Hi there MD, is there any updates regarding the status of the latest drop?
I admit I own several of these. It bears repeating, the drop says “Luxury Bottles” and that’s definitely what you’re paying for—because there‘s absolutely nothing at all special about the ink, regardless of what you’re paying for the container. These manufacturers, like many liquor producers these days, have discovered fancy bottles return fancy profits. Don’t encourage them unduly!

Are you calling me a liar? Why you no good, dirty-rotten, side-winde'n, varmint! Say, you haven't been drinking the stuff, have you? ;- )
Huh? Iroshizuku are part of this drop.
@Massdrop What's with the arbitrary limit of 5? Trying to get all my Iroshizuku in one fell swoop and the website is keeping me from giving you all my money!!

You so crazy, Massdrop love you long time!

TomaCzar
you'll be lucky to get any.. MD has cancelled the last 2 drops for these.
Too bad aquamarine isn't available :/
I'm sure there are people out the who can read Japanese Romaji, but for the rest of us, could you put what colors each of them are in English?

Here's another link that should help you - https://www.gouletpens.com/pilot-bottled-ink/c/185
I personal can never have too many inks. Great Drop, Thank you MD.
Think this is high when you buy online (e.g. Goulet Pens) total online is only $71. Still a little discount thoguh.

I just joined. The Edelstein inks are currently $27 each at Goulet, so this is three for the price of two.
geo2Lap
Goulet's don't ship for free ...
I'm baffled though that we get free shipping on this one (not complaining, mind) but the stupid Rhodia square notebook was $8 to the US :(
I hope MD is able to verify some inventory availability this time

I've heard Sailor Kobe #21 Taisanji Yellow is a great alternative. Thanks for the reply.
Hanshi
Taisanji Yellow is more golden honey than orange-ish brown of Edelstein's Amber.
just got a notice that this drop was cancelled

When i revived the email from Paypal it told me only refund $159.08. however, I just checked my Bank account today and i do get AUD$163.85 back to my Credit card. so i think at least i got my money back. hope this time MD will do the job, second try.
I swear, you Australians crack me up!
Hi, I haven't get any notification on my products shipment and I also noticed estimated shipment is at 27 Dec 2017, which I think not possible as I'm in Malaysia. May I know whether the vendor had ship out all products?
Pilot Iroshizuku are all sold out, and of the ones, this is the true Luxury ink, no deal.

I can only judge from a price point and here in Europe the Iroshizuku is more than twice the price of Edelstein ink. Can't really argue before I have had the chance to try it. Comparing Edelstein to for instance Lamy, the Edelstein is better IMHO. Still, the Edelstein price point here in Europe doesn't really make it a Luxury Ink. Will check the Japan shop and see if the prices are comparable. (Thanks for that tip btw! :) ) EU, and Sweden have a 25% VAT and import costs. Sometimes its still worth it, sometimes you pay AHECKUVA lot more than in a regular shop here.

Here's a link in case you don't want to chase for it online. Word of warning, I haven't ordered from this store so I can't vouch for quality of service or other things.

I would say Iroshizuku is worth it. Their ink is nice flowing, easy to clean, doesn't stain pens and most important of all it's great looking.
Pilot Iroshizuku is available for $22-25 CAD depending on the colour with free shipping on Amazon CA and shipping times are better than MD even when it's coming from Japan. https://www.amazon.ca/Pilot-Iroshizuku-Fountain-Pen-Ink/dp/B009UOLDYO/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1511306068&sr=8-1-fkmr1&keywords=iroshizuku+ama+gao
For that matter, Edelstein is only $22.30 also with free shipping. https://www.amazon.ca/Pelikan-Edelstein-Fountain-Aventurine-339366/dp/B0040BNQT2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1511305989&sr=8-2&keywords=edelstein&th=1
The only good deal here is the Montblanc line, and that's only if you don't get the Royal Blue or Mysterious Black which are both available for $20 with free shipping over $35. https://www.amazon.ca/Mont-Blanc-105192-Bottle-Royal/dp/B003LELEL6/ref=sr_1_1?s=office&ie=UTF8&qid=1511306286&sr=1-1&keywords=montblanc+royal+blue

Kudos to MD for such a low shipping cost in this drop though. Was expecting the usual $10+ when I checked the drop out.
It's funny how the boutique in Vancouver is listed by Google as a watch store. I was actually planning on making a trip to it as well as to the Vancouver Pen Shop even before this drop was released.

I ended up getting all three for about $30 thanks to the refunds and "we're sorry" discount certificates that MD has given me for various other drops that have been canceled. These may not otherwise be much of a good deal, but I'm definitely looking forward to the three bottles of Pelikan Edelstein that should get to my house sometime next year... Just in time to go with the new Pelikans I've got ordered (from somewhere else...).
Kon-Peki was available, when I was choosing then it was sold out. Bummer. Bring more Kon-Peki supply then I'll join. Otherwise, I see no reason.

Kon Peki may not be available, but Yama Budo is available! That's one of my all-time favorite ink colors.
Still not being able to ship to Brazil? :-/
wow. some nice colors available here.
