Quick update for the group. We are in contact with the vendor and awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.
We will update the group as soon as these are on the way. Currently we expect that these will be in our warehouse inline with the expected ship date listed in the drop description page.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 7/17 or sooner if something comes up.
There aren't many reviews of this pen online; what I did find wasn't too encouraging.

I was on the fence teetering toward getting this. I really love the way the gold and red one looks. and seems like it might write nice (but one person who got it through mass drop had to mod his nib). But this is going to be a hassle of a pen to own and use. I think I am going to pass on this one...

I have 2 ones. The Yellow and the white. They are writing perfect. but even they have a little flaw: The feather :( At the white one it was not well 'added' and the one of the yellow had a much too small pin and was only glued and is gone now :((
But I am very satisfied overall even if I am very sad about the feathers, but they do they job here good ;o)
Has this shipped yet? I haven't received any emails regarding this item. Thank you.
Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Stipula Speed 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 directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 6/10.
Rest assured that we we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 6/4.
I have had the same issue with this pen regarding drying out and rust along the collar ring. I don't use it anymore because of these reasons. I got the yellow one through a drop a couple of years ago.
I would skip this one if I were you. I had only problems with it. Had to tweak nib and feed. Even two pieces of plastic split up so I had to fix that as well. Has a tendency to dry and since recently parts started rusting. Nib writes nicely if you are lucky to get one that works out of the box mine was dry and had problems starting. This pen is not worth 20$ let alone 99$ which is advertised. My honest advice is to get Pilots or something non-Italian.

Hey @MeanEYE -- Those sound like more serious issues than you posted about before.
I'd really like to see that pen, and I'd be happy to send you a new one from this drop if that's okay.
Stipula does provide a warranty, and requests that you register any pen on the card included inside the box, or here: http://yafa.com/warranty_new.html
However, I'd like to replace this directly. Would it be okay if we make arrangements with Customer Support to have your pen sent here and ship you one when this drop ends?
Thanks for your help on QC and making sure that we're aware of any issues affecting products that we offer.
JonasHeineman
Thanks @JonasHeineman. You guys as always have awesome customer support. I doubt warranty would cover my pen as I had to modify it myself.
Issues are not all that much more serious, only rust appeared
search

since I last complained about it. Last time I didn't go into details I didn't consider important, like gluing two parts together, that was easily fixable and an easy oversight although QA should have caught that one. Due to my nib modifications gold plating had to be removed etc. So pen is modified and I doubt warranty would cover it.
There are couple of reasons I don't want my pen replaced by MD. First of it being, I love Massdrop community which helped me purchase some awesome things. Replacing my pen at your own expense wouldn't solve anything as pen is built in that way and rust will appear again in short time and would damage MD which is something I wouldn't like to happen. Another reason is sending back my pen would cost additional money which I am not willing to invest for this pen. Even receiving a replacement free of charge would cost me money as my country likes taxing everything.
I don't have only criticism for this pen. Once all the issues are solved, this pen writes really smooth. Smoother than Pilot Metropolitan pens.
Edit: Sorry for not providing additional photos. Taking shots of inner barrel is really hard and my pen is inked, so I'd have to drain it first. I would be more than happy to provide additional photos if you wish as soon as daylight comes.
Well, as the time moves on my initial happiness is quickly running out. Only problems with this pen. Ink keeps drying, slow start, inconsistent flow. Gah. Along this one I got Pilot Metropolitan which were half the price for 2 pens and they are miles better than this one.

That's great to hear, thanks for posting the guide here in case others run into the same issue.
JonasHeineman
@JonasHeineman you are welcome. :)
Just got mine today. Quite happy with it. Pen might a little bit on the dry side, but nothing to complain about.
We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out!
Thanks again for the support guys. Make sure to share your experience with the Stipula Speed Ivory Fountain Pen on Massdrop.

Hi All,
These arrived at our warehouse and are currently being labeled by our warehouse team to ensure shipping accuracy when these are packed up. The orders should start shipping on Monday and be completely shipped by Tuesday. We will update the group when everything is on the way.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 11/4 or sooner if something comes up.
Hi All,
The vendor was able to ship the group's order and it is now en route to our warehouse. ETA for these is 10/30 barring any delays on the way. We will keep an eye on tracking and update the group accordingly.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 10/31 or sooner if something comes up.
Hey Guys,

Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 10/28 or sooner if something comes up.
Hey Guys,
We spoke to the vendor earlier today and they are still preparing the group's order for shipment. We will stay in contact with them and update the group as soon as the bulk order arrives at our warehouse.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 10/22 or sooner if something comes up.
Hey everyone,
We submitted our order for The Stipula Speed Ivory Fountain Pen shortly after the drop ended.
Now that the order has been placed, the vendor is preparing it for shipment. In the meantime, we will also be getting our warehouse ready to handle the reshipment of the product to everyone as soon as it arrives.
Expect an update from us on 10/17 or sooner if something comes up.
Is the nib on this replaceable?
Hey everyone, we sold out of the fine nibs but were able to obtain a few more. There is now an option for fine and medium sized nibs available at check out. Thanks!
There might be a tad of flex but the nib isn't designed to flex - you might spring it. Lots of steel nibs are gold plated to complement the rest of the pen.
I am not familiar with steel nibs, the color of gold threw me off. How much flex is there?
Sanj
Little. There is still some flex, but it flexes less than a gold nib. You won't get much line variation and there is definitely a sweet spot. A much smaller sweet spot than that of a gold nib. It might take some getting used to, but stainless steel nibs still (generally) write well. Better than "iridium" nibs.
Personally I have a problem with a reference to Ivory as Ivory is an internationally prohibited trade item. I understand that it is the color of Ivory, NOT the actual material, but to me even a reference is helping to perpetuate the image of legitimacy for items that are sourced in elephant tusks. But I like the pen. Just with the name was something other than Ivory.
MHardlund
That's the name of the color, so there really shouldn't be any issue. This is in no way supporting the illegal trade of ivory in any way, since its just the name of the pen. Nowhere in the description does it say that it is made of Ivory.
Received mine this morning here in Canuckville, Canada. I opted for the 0.9mm Italic Nib.
The pen feels somewhat flimsy in the hand and you can occasionally hear the plastic creaking as you write around (which was somewhat disappointing). Otherwise, the styling is fantastic.
Their piston refilling thing is "meh" and I don't think you can take the pen apart to replace it with something more sensible.
Nib is decent albeit scratchy. At the beginning, I had some trouble consistently putting ink on the paper, but it seems to have loosened up a bit over time & I've gotten used to it.
All in all, would not recommend as a first step into the world of fountain pens. It is however a nice addition to an existing collection & it looks great.
Rovah
You just about hit it spot on. It's a decent pen, but writing with it is a bit weird and hard to get used to. I don't mind the piston refilling though.
Hey everyone, Happy to report that all the orders from the drop have been shipped out 5 days ahead of schedule! Thanks again for the support guys, and please feel free to share your experience of the Stipula Speed Fountain Pen with the rest of the group afterwards.

It looks as though the USPS tracking number on mine is some sort of duplicate, as it is showing that the parcel was delivered in December 2013.
It seems eminently likely to me that the pen's on its way, and I'll see it late next week; 'twould be nice to have an accurate tracking number.
cbbrowne
Apparently USPS recycles their shipping numbers, so you might be seeing the last time that particular number was used. On mine it just says "Not Found", but that's what usually happens with massdrop shipments to Canada.
Hey everyone, We just got an update from our vendors that our order is scheduled to be shipped to us by tomorrow. We’ll update again once the shipment is on its way. Cheers!
Hey everyone, We have just submitted our order of the Stipula Speed Fountain Pens. Massdrop is a platform that helps members within the community shop together at wholesale pricing. It’s pretty incredible that we managed to get 48 people in this drop within the 7 days it had been active. Now that the bulk order has been placed, our vendor is preparing the order for shipment. In the meantime, we will also be preparing our warehouse to handle the reshipment of the product to everyone as soon as the order arrives. We are just waiting for confirmation on the shipment schedule from our vendor now, we will be sure to update again here once that’s available. Cheers!
