Is this drop being reconsidered?
Perhaps a Massdrop Special Edition "Metal" Falcon with black metal body and rose gold trim & nib? ... Wishful thinking here.

Oh man, that's the stuff of dreams. :')

I know you guys are working hard on offering this drop again ;)
again pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee
totally hit 200 requests
Buyers: BEWARE!
I recieved the pen today and I was charged 40,11 EUR as import fee (Belgium). For some reason the seller does not take any import fees into account, although they know perfectly well what import fees are applicable to each country. They undervalue the item to avoid taxes and if your item gets checked you will have to pay the entire sum.
I hope Massdrop will provide compensation for this? If not, any item you buy from their website is a gamble.

I had the same issue and also paid that much. It happened once before with some stationnary from G.Lalo Mode de Paris Champagne. I guess custom agents apply import fees base on the title alone...
Beside that, it's a classy pen with gold and black. One downside of this kind of glossy resin is it tends to catch fingerprints. My Soft Fine writes smoothly and offers a bit of feedback but not the kind "it digs in the paper". Softness might disturb some but I find it quite pleasant.
Here's another writing sample for you guys ! (scanner doesn't pay hommage to the ink, I really recommand you to try it out for its shading properties !)

Get this in Fine if you want to learn the difference between feedback and "scratchy"—it's quite smooth but you can feel the grain of the paper pass beneath the nib. The Fine also makes CRAZY thin lines, and the Falcon nib (which is NOT flex) gives it just a bit more ink at the end/start of the stroke, depending on how you write; this is an EXCELLENT nib for bringing out the shading of the ink.
Edit: also, yes, this is MUCH less fatiguing on your hand over long writing sessions, compared to a steel nib.
I got mine on Saturday. Very nice pen. Thank you!

Hi all,
We had to end this drop a few hours early due to some miscommunication on available stock. Sorry for any inconvenience!

I had used the wrong card, and was going to switch it tonight; my initial charge was rejected. The card revision, and subsequent payment, seems to have gone through.
Can't wait, make the time go faster.
Amazon has the gold+fine combo for about the same price+shipping as here ($130); this is often true of Amazon—the most popular version or model of something is deeply discounted. Of course, the option *I* want—rhodium+fine—as well as most other options/combos, are much more expensive. You win this one for sure, Massdrop! ;P
Please get more black/gold fine nib in stock. Or at least the red in fine nib. Thanks.
Is this Guaranteed for delivery by xmas?
I would like to join the drop but would they undervalue to avoid customs while shipping internationally ?
sanjay13leo
Sorry @sanjay13leo, our customs values for shipping are auto calculated and cannot be adjusted.
Does Black/Gold come with extra-fine nib? or sold out already?
Melomelo
It appears Black/Gold with EF nib is not available for this drop.
Melomelo
Sorry, Black and gold is not offered with an EF nib.
@Melomelo
I think this is going to be a Christmas gift for myself. I like the Black/Gold despite it being a bit drab. The Red/Rhodium has a nice pizzazz to it, but it seems too hard to match inks with. Can anyone help sway me either way in terms of color?
Marshallmallowlol
I went with the red, gotta add a bit of spice in my life haha :D I think the red looks fantastic and also I don't feel like it'll be too hard to match inks with, it looks good in photos with blues, blacks, oranges. Heck maybe even a good time to match it with a green in time for Christmas!
Is this the Custom Heritage Falcon? And is the FA nib available? Thanks. I am new to this. Michael

The Custom Heritage series with FA nib are different pens. This is the Pilot Falcon, also called the Elabo in some regions. This pen is a little bit smaller, less costly and the nib is softer than most modern nibs but not as soft/flexible as the FA nib.
Copperchef
Thanks Copperchef. Your answer was very helpful.

Is shipping to Mexico going to be available anytime soon? There has been a few drops that I am interested in like this one but none seem to ship to Mexico. I really hope this can be worked out.
Please get the metal version!
Soft Fine would probably be the ideal nib, I find the SEF too scratchy for flexing
Hmm, mine left Colorado on the 11th, with an expected delivery date of Oct 13th. It's now the 17th and the latest tracking info still says "Departed USPS Facility Aurora, CO" on the 11th. Is there any way to see if my pen got lost in the shuffle?
yorgasor
I have the same issue...
Figboot
The tracking info finally updated last night and was delivered today. I figure mine was just accidentally sent out on the Pony Express :)

It was good to be able to receive as soon as possible. But it was disappointed in the slight scratch on the barrel.
The vendor has shipped the first batch of pens. People belonging to this group should have received an email with tracking. The second batch should be shipping between tomorrow and Friday. We will make sure to update the group once the order ships in full.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 10/16 or sooner if something comes up.
Oh noooo I meant to order this but didn't get the order in in time... I have wanted one with an extra fine nib forever and they're pretty hard to find!

Hi
Is the offer to join in still valid, can you help me if they could undervalue the value of the product while shipping ?
i want EF nibs too :(
