Nice pen--worth about $25. Yet another rip-off pen from your good buddies at MD. If you know pens, you know better than to buy 'em here!

Don't know which fantasy Google or eBay you access... the "deals" all use lovely unbranded "premium iridium nib". Of course, in your fascinating everyone must be ripping me off world, maybe they're just as good as Jowo nibs.

So buy a Jowo nib for the kit pens you find on eBay—it’s not much of an upgrade, but as long as you don’t over pay for it, it can’t hurt. Good source for upgrade nibs: Goulet Pens.
Better yet, find my post titled: “Buy This Orange Pen”—you’ll save a lot of money (and learn a bit too ;- )

Where are these made?
INFOWARS_jARjAR
Pens are made in Missoula, Montana.

And another thing--I'm sick of Missoulaians stealing all our pen jobs! I propose a total ban on all Missoula pens until our government figures out what the hell is going on!

Is the pen heavy? I'm really bad at conceptualizing weight measurements, so I'd love a comparison with, say, a pilot metropolitan. I've got pretty gnarly hand pain, so I need to know if this pen is too heavy before I spend that much on it.

I wouldn't say it's too heavy, once you get into the 50+ grams is when it get's heavy, but I wouldn't say it's very light either.
Beautiful... I can't justify buying it this month... but since the drop extends into next month that may be a loophole... 💸
This is an absolutely gorgeous pen. Love that it has a JoWo nib, too. And comes with a converter.
Any way to see samples of fine vs. medium nib?
Can the nib be changed? Does it follow a particular size?
appleseed25
Yes, the nib is #5 JoWo so there are lot of good options (e.g., Franklin Christoph's #5 nibs) to swap in other nibs.
Tree_Ring
F-C uses Bock nibs, IIRC, so you might not be able to swap. But Goulet nibs (and many others) are Jowo.
beautiful... Just got into fountain pens, so I can't put the money on this yet... a shame, because it is so pretty.

Here's a video that touches on it somewhat. But what bailey says is true. I'm still new to this myself, so take what I'm saying with a grain of salt.

I probably would trade any of my western gold-nibbed FP for a steel-nibbed Diplomat. It's THAT good. :D
I know nothing about pens. Would this be OK for a daily carry/use pen?

Would you say it's suitable for people with abnormally large hands and fingers? I have massive hands and find a lot of pens (granted, I've never used a fountain oen) too small.
Ripkabird98
Not sure on that. I have never received a return or complaint about the grip not working well with large hands so you are probably good. I think it depends more on how you tend to grip the pen versus the size of your hands. The pen has a reasonable diameter at just over 1/2" so I don't think you would face the problem of it being too thin.

What is the diameter of the barrel? Thanks.
Load 1 more comment
Is that more than or less than ½" diameter.
slightly above. There is a small amount of taper to the barrel. At its narrowest point, near the nib, it is 0.507. At its widest part it is 0.54"
Does anyone have an idea of how this pen feels in the hand? Looks like it could be uncomfortable?
PickleSoup
I have one from the last drop and have no issues with it. I have large hands and although the barrel to nib section is different from most fountain pens it has been of no consequence for me. I love my Tree Ring pen!
thomasaburns
Oh phooey! Lol! I really didn't need to hear good things about it, because I REALLY want it. !!

Any word? It is a bit disappointing that there is such a delay. Especially since this pen is a gift for a friend on Tuesday.

This is a joke. Right?

I received a Mont Blanc 149 from France in 3 days. No wonder why this tree ring pen is free delivery. It's coming by mule.

Hello. Just curious when we can pick the nib size of the fountain pen, now that the drop is over.
Pen arrived in perfect condition. I love that it is unique and and tells an interesting story. The magnetic cap is nice and secure and the pen writes well. I'm very pleased with my purchase. Thank you!
It was my pleasure to craft all of these fine pens for you. I hope they bring you years of enjoyment. Thank you!
