I was skeptical about this and other vanishing point pens but this writes like a dream and feels well balanced. The pocket clip is actually helpful when writing. Only complaint is that you need to see a video on how to fill the pen and the converter dosen't hold much. The pen also is not flashy which in many cases is an advantage. I'd buy it again!!
Yeah, I got one as well...the converter was a con20 I think. Didn't work well at first. Had to do some flushing and had a spare one to use.
The pen writes well, and I like the feel in my hand.
I'm wondering if anyone else got a wonky converter (I also got a blue ink cartridge, not black, but that's no big deal). I wasn't expecting any converter, but when I tried to use it my pen leaked like a sieve. I took the converter out and it's like a con-50 but without the agitator -- has anyone else had this experience/know what the converter is?

I found that even after flushing/wiping/q-tipping, I had the ink from the converter coming out of the threads that hold the barrel together (I know it was that ink because it was a different color than the cartridge, which seems to be working [knock wood]). Is there any chance that's the issue? I'm planning to just syringe refill cartridges I think.

After letting cleaned the pen dry and sit a few days, and trying a CON-50 converter again, I'm able to get the pen to work without leaking. I think the converter that came with the pen is not appropriate for the pen.

Deciding to post this here in case anyone missed the Fermo and is looking for another unique, retractable fountain pen: https://www.massdrop.com/vote/-Product-I-would-buy-a-Pilot-Capless-Decimo-Vanishing-Point-in-Matte-Black
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Pilot Fermo Twist Action VP 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 9/5.
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 9/6.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
I was traveling and saw this too late to confirm :-( - please redrop!
Could anyone briefly speak to the difference between this pen and the vanishing point beyond the twist vs. click top retraction mechanism? Only a dozen left and would likely jump with a bit more info. Thank you in advance.

Thanks for your useful observations. I've been wrestling with the choice between this, the VP and the new Decimo but was going to bite the bullet anyway with 97 of 104 sold. But it was the middle of the night for me and I drifted off to awaken to "drop ended." Maybe I'll find one through a different outlet since they're out of production & it seems unlikely that Massdrop will be able to source the numbers needed for a good drop.

Twist is a more secure better mechanism
This are the best writing pens, way way better than Lamy 2000. I have several.
I too need to know about Canadian shipping: when I try to order it, it doesn't appear like I can ship it here, yet there is no such notice on the product page... Please let us know ASAP.
Do these not ship to Canada ?!?! i thought only Lamy had these horrible shipping limitations :(
any chance we can get a converter added to this?

I agree that it would be nice to have the converter included (so we don't have to go out and order it ourselves). Luckily, it looks like it takes the Pilot CON-50, which is on Goulet Pens for $5.50, so I'm probably just going to add it on with a new ink bottle. The next question is what color of ink...
No shipping to Canada?
Canit
Sorry about that! We've fixed it so that this will ship outside of the US.

Thank you!
Oh snap! It's back! No blue though... Scratch that.. when I landed at the page, it said 4 purchased and guess what; it was all the fines :/
Hi all,
Unfortunately, we're still unable to offer this drop, or any other Pilot Namiki items in the foreseeable future. :(
We'll never stop trying though, and hopefully in the future we'll be able to bring these back. In the meantime, please keep posting and requesting - seeing all of your support can only help!
Liz
why not?

Unfortunately, since Pilot Namiki items have strict pricing policies, we're not able to offer a competitive price to the community right now.
Any updates on this redroping!?
please drop this again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We need this to redrop do it now !!!
Can we get an update on the re-dropping this item? We have 469 requests as of 21st Jan. :(
How can i make this drop active again?
OK, looks like nearly 400 folks have said they want this pen. Time to get it going again methinks
Any chance this will be dropped again soon? ):
Hoping to buy a few and I'm holding out for the next drop!
Hope you can bring this drop back. Try to give us a heads up when this is going to be dropped.
I got sent the wrong pen but Massdrop support is being very helpful and resolving my issue, yay Massdrop! Edited because I misinterpreted an email
Wow. It sounds like shipping happened even sooner than expected (with the early close). I'm pretty vocal when I don't think things are going right, so ...
Kudos to Massdrop for taking care of this pretty darn quick!
Cheers.

Just got mine last night. Kind of wierd: I got the tracking email yesterday morning, and the package yesterday night. Odd timing that.
I got the Metallic Blue with a medium nib. The pen is awesome. Super smooth on the paper. Smooth barrel too.
I got mine as well! Nib feels great on the page, but I ended up getting the carbonesque finish and it is... grippy. I'll get used to it, but it's a little weird.
Great news group! The vendor just confirmed that your orders are now on the way! Tracking has been uploaded to the transaction page. Please allow 24-48 hours for the page to reflect the latest status of your order.

Do the drop again :(
I received the shipment-sent e-mail today, and when I checked the status it had already been delivered. Shipments went out on the 31st via three-day USPS. Now I'm waiting on the Private Reserve blue I ordered to fill up the Vanishing Point (blue medium with rhodium accents). Thanks guys!
Maasdrop and fast shipping?! Why I might as well wake up to find myself on Mars tomorrow.
