There are only 25 pieces and yet they struggle to sell them, I wonder why is that... I don't think there are lots of people who want a pen that is impractical to write with....seriously, caligraphy pens are better daily writers than these. They are pretty though I have to mention.
Simply cannot image how I am supposed to use this? Am I supposed to write with the aluminum cap on? What a disastrous design.

It is more like a collector's item (read: not for daily usage).

Regardless whether a $800 pen qualifies for a "collectible" (maybe yes from its number of production), that doesn't justifies a terrible anti-functional design of it. Even admitting it is a collector's pen, it is a pen first before it can be collected. Pelikan, montblanc and many other prestigious manufacturers sell way more expensive pens that can be collected, and easily used.
Hi All,
We have reactivated this drop for another round as the initial drop did not have all available nib sizes listed for purchase. You may now select from Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and Music 14kt gold at checkout! Grab em while you can!
Cheers,

3 strikes. You're out.
What's worse is they recognized some of this, because of the stupid sleeve. And this could've been gorgeous...if they hadn't plumped it up so much it reminds me of a Butterball turkey.
And yeah...even then, Nakaya offers more interesting AND more usable shapes. And many more color options. So you can have a nice little work of art in your hand, and actually *use* it.
saw someone had joined but then dropped out :D
899.99 for a pen. l o l

Some people understand artisan cheese and craft beer; others are stuck at Bud Lite and Velveeta.
Granted, the listing here deserves scoff.

Wow you're so insightful and unique.
Just so everyone knows, there's a sleeve included to make that step-down more comfortable. Crazy design though hahah.
Looks comfortable . I have Lego hands.
Looking at the pictures, it's a broad. My guess is they are all broad.
I get the sense that this pen isn't designed to be used, but is more designed to be a collector item, something to show off in a display case.
I like the concept, if it was better designed in the grip area, I'd buy it. I have a couple $500+ pens, but I want to write with them, not just look at them.
Looks like this is a pen for lookin’ at, not for writing. It is strikingly beautiful though.
And there's a reason why almost half of this very limited edition is available on MD....I'd go for a Nakaya at this price and save myself a couple hundred

Yeah, I'd definitely take a Nakaya over a Taccia any day.
The urushi finish on this pen looks wonderful, but the pen itself is one fugly design.
epic fail design. in all ways
The fact that this is includes an add-on section speaks to the failure to design a pen capable of being held
I know this is a specialty pen, but I just gotta say the step-down from body to section looks terrible.

Yep.. that is a HUUUUGE Step!!!

Almost like it wasn't really designed as a pen in the first place.
This is a great deal. I paid far more for mine. At that vendor, I could only select a medium nib. I haven't actually tested the nib yet since it's such a froufrou pen.
Did I miss the nib size, can't seem to find it.

Even the Taccia website doesn't say. The one English language dealer I could find had it for street price just above $1,000 and with a broad only, but who knows, maybe that is all they had. Taccia's nicer pens use Sailor nibs (both for the better steel ones and as far as I know all the gold ones) so that at least gives an idea of the range.

Thanks for the research! I was just curious, I am sure the pictures don't do the pen justice, however I have already blown through my Christmas budget (and there's a lot of time to shop left). ☹️ Wonder how Massdrop got ahold of these. It certainly is an interesting drop.
