Oh-very Regal, but British? Not so much! I’m a big fan of cheap Chinese pens, but only when they‘re actually cheap!

I am considering joining this drop however i'd like to know about the policy on international warranty, could someone please fill me in.
I can't decide whether to get it lol, my EDC right now is the Faber-Castell Basic.
I received my pen today and the section is stuck inside the cap. If I just pulled (this is supposed to be a snap cap) the body pops off. If I try to unscrew it, the front, including threads, is still in the cap. What the hell? I guess my next step is to find something to grip the threads and pull. EDIT: I managed to pull it out of the cap this time. I can now see the nib and it isn't lined up with the feed.

That doesn't sound good, our Community Support team would be happy to look into that for you. Can you shoot us an email? You can get to our webform directly from your transactions page (massdrop.com/transactions).

Will do. Thanks!
What ink would I need to refill it, and how exactly do I refill it? I would like to bookmark the page for it so I can order some when needed.

Hello @JustFluxz,
Your questions are fundamental to the fountain pen world. For this type of pen, known as "cartridge/converter," there are two ways to fill it. One is through standard international short ink cartridges, of which I believe 2 come with the pen. They are easy to install. You can buy them in any number of ink colors through any number of vendors, including amazon; just remember that the standard international short variety is what will fit this pen.
The second way is through use of a "converter," a small piston operated device through which ink is drawn up through the nib of the pen, stored in the converter, and delivered through the pen's feed while writing. This requires a bit more thought than just installing a cartridge, because you have to obtain bottled ink. This, of course, is the fun part for many of us fountain pen enthusiasts, but may or may not be to your taste. As for operating the converter, this is easy: go to YouTube and search "using a fountain pen converter" for a tutorial.
Hope this helps!
What is the converter used for?
JustFluxz
Bottled ink as opposed to cartridges. Bottled ink comes in a wider variety of colors, and if you care about such things, there's also less waste.
I'm searching everywhere I can, but I can't find anyone online who even mentions it. Does anybody have any idea if these nibs are lefty-friendly?

Ah! Never having had that experience myself, I can say it sounds horrible lol. But modern fountain pens do seem to be lefty friendly for the most part. I did attempt to get a pen with a special lefty grind (reverse non italic oblique) and found that it is no better to write with for me than a standard nib.

I"m a lefty and I've never had a problem. That being said, I underwrite pretty sharply so my hand never drags across what I've just written but I've found many lefties either underwrite or overwrite as we get tired of smudging pencil or even ballpoint pen ink. I've never found any problem with a nib though.
You can get the same fountain pen and the rollerball on Amazon for $39.99 plus free shipping.

Thanks for flagging this. We work directly with Regal to offer these pens, and they've let us know to caution members that this is an unauthorized reseller - meaning warranty will NOT be honored.
When another reseller has a better price for an identical item in the same condition, we're happy to have members let us know - sometimes we can even get a better price because of that. In this particular case, just proceed with caution as any defects or manufacturing issues will not be cause for replacement with the manufacturer.

Hmmmm, an unauthorized retailer selling non-warranteed pen at a discount? Kind of like when Massdrop sells Pelikan pens, right?
Only in this case, we're talking $28 not $280 (or more).
