Where's the price?
To negotiate the best possible price for our members, we must agree to hide our prices externally.



This would likely be selling like hot cakes, were it not for the lead content. Perhaps, can make them without any lead?
Hi All,
We have corrected the MSRP on the page, the previous MSRP was for a single Beta Inkless Pen and this drop is a 2 pack, bringing the MSRP to $59.90.
Cheers,
msrp 30 massdrop is doing 43
LOL
thanks but no thanks
lammatt
isn't it 30 for one and 43 for two?
They write a very pale silver line, not terribly easy to read.
MagistraK
I agree. It is a really cool idea, but the writing is too faint to be able to read well. :( Such a disappointment because I was SOOO excited about this!!
Why is the MSRP lower than the Massdrop price? Seems reversed somehow.
MagistraK
I believe that they are listing the MSRP for a single pen, while the drop is for a pack of two pens.
Wingbyte
Ah, so it's lack of clear writing not poor pricing?
So the tip contains all of the "lead" for the pen? If you want more lead you must replace the tip? Also, it looks like you can only keep it sharp for the first quarter inch or so before it simply becomes too wide to sharpen -- does anyone know how long a tip is supposed to last?

Roughly $25 on amazon. so not a good deal at all unless it reaches the $21.99 mark making it $24.74 which is $1 to $4 cheaper than amazon depending on which model you want. it is cheaper and I am drooling over that cherry wood one.
Nerys
Even if it reaches $21.99 again, you still wait nearly 1 month for it to ship and another few weeks for it to arrive.

Sooooo a pencil?
liam_mcgrail
Technically,it writes in metal. No idea what it means, but that's what the marketing says.
Every time I see these things come up, I'm baffled by why they insist on calling these pencils "pens"...
$24 on amazon with 2 day prime shipping.

I have this! But I dont use it often at all, unless i'm feeling whimsical. If you're expecting a pen feel, nope, pencil feel, nope... I can at most describe it as a super scratchy pen that you need to use some force to get the ink out. There's quite a bit of friction, it'll be hard to write with speed. here's a photo of the writing...

I thank you for the common sense approach of actually showing how this pen - pencil - whatever writes! It speaks for itself (see above, folks).
Unless a person is searching for that real hard lead / light line look, why would anyone struggle through using this device other than for novelty? I used a similar utensil in art school printmaking that was actually called silverpoint. Boy was it a scratchy timesucker of a challenge - and not silver, by the way. 'Gotta say, from this company or the other more common vendor, I find these inkless utensils to be equally useless.
I got the keychain version and it's pure stupidity. Impossible to move your hand to a writeable position, and the tip is very scratchy, so it's not great even then. Looks cool though!

I'm trying to commit at $21.99 but the total still reads the full price. I will not secure the order with the wrong price listed. I want to get a few of these, so if it is an error, it will add up.
Ruoar
It will read full price until the total is reached. You won't pay unless the lowest price is reached because that is what you are committing to.

I committed to this at the lowest price, then checked amazon... About 78 cents cheaper for the cherry model, more than $5 cheaper for the metal varieties. And since I'm an amazon prime member and get two-day shipping free, I'm out.

You make some good points. But the thing is, on reading reviews here, and on amazon, I don't really want the item at all... and seeing that if I decide I do want it later, I know I can get it later and don't have to make a decision now, and I can get it at around the same price. And I spend plenty of money on Massdrop. $600 in the last month. So I don't really think I owe them anything. They are here to serve me (meaning all their customers, not just me), not the other way around. I'm loyal, to a point, but, in this day and age, with no one giving anyone any loyalty (I recently got laid off at a company I worked at for over 15 years), I tend to not feel that beholden.
Would it help if I provided the links to the Amazon pages that have this as both prime and less expensive?
If my kids eats this pen, I'm not sure if I'd be sad or just embarrassed
I bought one of these things years ago. It's an interesting novelty but really nothing more. It's far too scratchy to actually write with.
cjrhoades
I agree, it also doesn't write dark enough and if you drop it the tip breaks off
