Liz (Mass Drop) ...did this Namisu order get stuck in Customs too (like the Orion) ?
Thanks,
STINGFAN
Actually, yes, but it got cleared at the same time. We're working to get it out asap, but latest will be early next week right after the holiday.
I purchased the Titanium version in the last drop and have been very happy with it. The Bock steel nib is very smooth and I was impressed with the quality of the machining. For this price, if you wish to own a metal bodied pen of this style I would recommend it over the similar Kaweco models.

Unfortunately, I am not as happy with my second unit. The Bock medium nib has excessive tipping which is not properly aligned to the tines. It does not write properly, very dry in several directions.
I think there is still an error with this drop - surely the regular price on this pen isn't $40 more than the Namisu Orion? For $102.86 I'd be expecting the Titanium pen. In the interests of 'truth in advertising', I think this needs to be checked and corrected.
I own the all titanium version, from kickstarter, its a nice pen, and worth the money. Mine arrived with hairline scratches and when I message Namisu they promptly gave me the option to exchange, but I didn't want to deal with shipping, and the scratches will make it to the pen eventually through use. the Ti nib is a mix bag, on one hand it has great "feedback" and some flex, but the "feedback" can be more like a rough scratchy nib feeling, and the flex isn't quite enough to be "expressive." its a great daily pen but the lack of the clip means it will roll and roll and roll but its a joy to hold because it is perfectly smooth.
How do I cancel my order? Yesterday I joined the drop when it was a brushed titanium pen. It seems you've since changed the product from the one I ordered, and I'm not interested in another aluminum pen in spite of a corresponding lower price.
Same ole Massdrop...

you should be able to from the transactions page
Hi all,
Thanks to @STINGFAN for flagging some errors we had on this page that carried over from the last drop.
This current drop is for the Black Aluminum Nova only, and the copy and drop price has been updated to reflect this. Happy shopping! :)

Liz: Thanks for the prompt reply and modifications to the copy and the lowering of the price. I am a BUYER of BOTH Namisu drops.. Best Regards, Bill
Hopefully this drop will get sorted correctly. I picked up the stonewashed Nova titanium with a EF titanium nib and it is one of the nicest pens in my collection. https://www.scrivinor.com/article/namisu-nova-titanium-comes-writing?locale=en

All sorted! We have updated the copy and drop price to reflect that this is for the Black Aluminum version.
MASSDROP:
Ok, so if this Pen is actually the Nova Black Anodized Aluminum version (despite what the description says) then The Reg price is normally actually LOWER than the Orion Reg Price, making the best MassDrop price of $64.99 really really high...
The Nova Black Anodized Aluminum version is normally LESS than the Brushed Titanium version...
This entire NOVA offering seems to need to be reviewed and corrected...description, images, price, titanium nib price etc...
STINGFAN
Thanks for flagging these discrepancies! We've updated the copy, and lowered the price here.

MASSDROP: The Image does NOT match the description...Image is clearly of a BLACK Fountain Pen, but the description says the offering is for s Brushed Titanium finish...which is correct? Here's a link to the Namisu site which shows the brushed Titanium finish https://www.namisu.com/collections/fountain-pens/products/nova-brushed-titanium
Also, why is the Titanium nib an extra $45 in this Nova drop, but in the other current MassDrop Namisu Orion offering the SAME Titanium nib is $40..?
Also the savings in the 2 Namisu drops is also significantly different... Orion reg price 74 pounds - MassDrop best price is $44.99 Nova reg price 79 pounds - MassDrop best price is $64.99
Thanks in advance for your response..
Bill

Actually your reply is incorrect...the nibs are the same..the ORION and the NOVA take #6 nibs...same nib
from the Namisu website: https://www.namisu.com/collections/fountain-pens/products/orion-stonewashed Orion: "The fountain pen comes with  #6 Stainless Steel nib (sizes EF, M, B).  A semi-flex titanium nib (sizes EF, M) can also be added to your order " - The Titanium nib on the Massdrop offering for the Orion is $40...for the Nova $45
STINGFAN
Thanks for flagging this - we've lowered the drop price here and updated the copy.
I don’t see a photo of a brushed titanium finish pen as mentioned in the description. I see what seems like an aluminum pen with some black coating. Can someone clarify
In case it helps, Namisu states: https://www.namisu.com/collections/fountain-pens/products/nova-brushed-titanium
  • Please note that the pen is designed to be used without posting the cap. 
My pen arrived today, July 10. My first Titanium pen, and with a buttery smooth broad nib. Asendia had estimated delivery by July 1st, so I had been concerned, but all worked out well in the end.
A beautiful writing instrument. I was glad to acquire it for my little collection. Thank you.
It has now been a month and we haven't heard a thing.

We just received these in our warehouse Friday afternoon, so they will be shipping out very soon. Thanks for your patience!
Liz
Thank you
We haven't had an update on this in quite while.
This comment may be a repeat, but if so, I'm unlcear on the previous answer - the images shown in the drop for this pen show a brushed titanium finish and/or a satin black finish; but the specs only list a satin black finish and there is no option at checkout to select between the two. Is the brushed titanium finish no longer available?
koyuk
This is for the brushed Titanium finish only. We reused a pic of the black aluminum version to show what the titanium nib looks like, but otherwise no aluminum pens are available for this drop, just the brushed Ti.
OK, I am in. Stonewashed next time, maybe Ebonite right then, please. :)
Two questions:
How does this nib compare to either a Pilot or a Lamy nib? I use a Fine nib in my Lamy 2000, but there is no Fine available for the Nova in this drop. Wondering how a Medium nib here would compare to a Lamy Fine.
How does the titanium react to ink stains? Does the pen stain, or does the ink simply wipe off?
K.T.N
The EF nib would be more suited for you. We don't sell Bock F nibs because these nibs are quite wet and this makes the difference between F and M nibs very slight.
Titanium doesn't stain with ink at all, you can just wipe the ink off after refilling.
ETA on Ebonite ?
Are you sure the weight indicated is correct? 25g capped, 19g uncapped, seems like the weight of the aluminum version, not the titanium one which is significantly heavier (40g/30g). Either they just changed their manufacturing process, which doesn't seem to be the case looking at their website, or you have the wrong data here.
Feanaaro
The weight is indeed wrong on the drop . It should be around 46g capped and 32g uncapped. @Liz
Any chance there will be a drop for the stonewashed finish?
Sharp
I would prefer it, too.
Got one of these off the kickstarter campaign. Just be aware the titanium is *thick*. Makes it strong but its very heavy. I find it way too heavy for comfortable long term use.
Just checking. With the titanium nib option, does it come with the titanium nib in addition to the standard stainless steel nib, or is it mutually exclusive? I ask this as it seems on the Namisu website, the titanium nib is available as an addon, in addition to the standard nib.
Gaja
Please keep in mind that the price on Namisu's website for the titanium nib add-on is 45GBP or about 60 USD. A good question nonetheless.
I prefer unposted pens, but a clip would be a big plus, and would keep the pen from rolling off the desktop. I have enough pocket pens that I don't need one more for the rotation. Sad to say, but I'm going to take a pass on this one.

I understand. It definitely would be much wiser to carry this one a pouche. Having a lot of Fisher Bullet type pens I also understand the general impracticality of a clipless pens. When I had been carrying one in my shirt pocket, regardless taking maximum care and attention, it slipped out on the second day. Also, they definitely are desk runners. On the other hand, they forced me to perfectly level my new desk. :) I just cannot resist to the simple design. I love the Bullets, clipless Nakaya fountain pens, this one ... Without the clip, people even do not realize it actually is a pen! I am not sure if it is good but it is definitely cool. :) OK, let's come to a conclusion. The bold message to the manufacturer should most probably be: Please make the clip optional and let your customers choose.
Liberty
If you carry it in the leather sleeve it's protected and you don't need a clip.It would be hard to get a clip onto the very short cap and it would throw off the design.
This drop is an embarrassing mess. The price makes no sense, and it's unclear which finish is shipping. Do you guys need a good copyeditor? If so, let me know ;)

This particular drop is for the Brushed Titanium version only, and the MSRP has been updated based on the current exchange rate. Sorry for the errors!
The description and pictures don't match here. Is this for the titanium or the satin black aluminum?
ESween
Yeah, it is confusing. In the note, it says this is the brushed titanium model tho.
ESween
This is for the Brushed Titanium finish only. We did have to recycle an image of the black aluminum Nova to show the Titanium Nib upgrade option. Sorry for the confusion!
The suggested retail price shown is Less than the Massdrop price???
FenCroft
Looks like thats the old RRP - currently GBP £71 (sale price) on the website- https://www.namisu.com/collections/fountain-pens/products/nova-stonewashed-titanium
FenCroft
Thanks for flagging this error; the MSRP has been updated for the Brushed Ti version based on the current exchange rate.
I would be interested in the Ebonite version of this pen.
rabidkat
Thanks for letting us know! We'll keep this in mind when we coordinate more drops with our friends at Namisu.

There are several serious problems with this pen:
1. There is no rolling stopper, so the pen can easily roll on the surface of your table and fall on the floor. 2. The nib is screwed but not locked inside of the pen. You must tighten it somehow before starting using the pen. Otherwise, be prepared for nib section to jump off the pen while writing. 3. There is no cap clip and there is no way to add a clip without drilling and scratching the finish. 4. You can't post the cap without damaging the pen finish. 5. Most serious is the pen finish. Although it is black and mat, it absorbs the ink and it is very hard to wipe the ink off. When ink stays on the pen body, even if it is dry, it paints your finger, which is not something you are expecting from a quality pen.
Consider all these before buying it. I like the nib and the overall build quality and I hope to fix all above problems by myself to make it daily useful. But if I knew about all these problems before I bought it, I would probably go for Faber-Castells E-motion PureBlack, although it is almost 3 times more expensive.

Awesome that it's shippen. Can't wait! I'm going to give one to my son for Christmas. He was attracted to the Visconti Homo Sapiens Dark Age. But, alas, at $695.00 on the Goulet site, it's waaaaaaaay out of our league. This minimalist all black pen might just make him happy. (Shh. Don't tell, but I bought one for myself, too!)
