The color of the pen in the main photo is red, and there is no option for red color?
Doesnt really have any discount ... real disappointed with the pricing.....
Does the Pen come with a converter?

I haven’t been able to find one that fits. The Viscont Deluxe doesn’t fit. I was told that it did. If you find one please let me know. Thank y.

I just tried installing a spare std international style converter I had laying around and it seems to fit well. Haven't inked it up though.
Disappointed, wouldn't buy another without being able to try it out first. The quality control must be severely lacking at Visconti. The pen arrived loose in the box with ink everywhere, and for a pen that costs this much it should have no problems writing, the one thing a pen is expected to do. Constant hard starts and skipping. Pretty sad when much less expensive, Pilot and TWSBI pens, are better writers than this. The most this has going for it is that it looks good and the magnetic cap is cool. I will most likely have to pay someone to fix the ink flow issues. Sad thing is that I really want to like it, so frustrating. ☹️

I am also very disappointed in the quality of this pen. There is a converter pictured and it did not come with one. Why is it in the picture. I will not purchase anything from Massdrop against as I feel the ad is disingenuous.
I went with the Eclipse with fine nib. No one else seems to have those shades with a fine nib. Will MD be able to deliver what no one else will?
I can't believe I missed a red with a broad nib! Maybe next time.
I just received my pen few days ago. I am currently using the blue ink cartridge come with the pen. When I am writing, the ink keeps breaking, so a part of the words are blank. I really like the body of this pen. What I can do with the ink breaking issue?

I ended up returning mine after similar issues. 🙈

Me too.
Do some of the proceeds still go to that children's hospital?
Is it my imagination or is this the first Visconti drop in over a year?
If so, does this suggest we might see other Visconti drops in the near future or have I just not seen the regular Visconti drops happening in the meantime?
Thanks.

And now there's a van gogh drop...
GonzoTGreat
There was a Homo sapiens drop less than a month ago.
A converter is pictured, but not listed with the package contents. Is a converter included?
Hagerdoc
Same here! Did you have to buy one separate? A few Visconti converters I can find say not compatible with Rembrandt ....
Sorry MassDrop...prices on other sites (with free shipping) are better. Really disappointed that even with a group buy the prices are higher than on other sites. And I can get the pen much faster there.
Hopefully your next drop will be better.
Thanks!

Thanks I will have a look on eBay then. Cheers

Good Luck! Do look at the best offers options there too. They quote a higher base price but might be open to a lower price (or so I have found in the past)... Personally I would prefer to buy from MassDrop but I wish they had been able to negotiate a lower price...ah well...hopefully next time.
Do let me know if you find a great deal. :)
Hi, the Merry-Go-Round Visconti Rembrandt sent to me had discolorations at the section near the nib, an ugly patina across the nib and scratches on the section. I sent an email last Friday and there is still no reply.
I just received my pen (fine nib)- is anyone else finding it rather hard starting? I am disappointed....

Wow. That is some bad math, 2 out of 5. These are not cheap pens,either.
You should always clean new pens, no matter the brand.

Fine Point only in Purple? Bummer. Was quite interested until that discovery.
carlosf9
Ditto. I was quite excited about the red. I had been drooling over it at Fountain Pen Hospital in Manhattan. But I'd only want it in Fine.
It's really awesome to see Visconti participating in these drops. If the Van Gogh Starry Night is ever available for anywhere near this price, I'll be first in line.
Any idea what this is going to be shipped with?Want to buy a second one but DHL seems to lost 2 of my packages from Massdrop now....Contacted support and haven't heard back from them......

Hey @DeathWatch -- I'm sorry DHL has been so unreliable, I've flagged this issue for our Customer Support team and have asked them to follow up with you on Monday.

Hi,
Thanks a lot for your help.They contacted me yesterday.I think they said it is about a Chinese law prohibiting import of items valued about $160.(which is not true...I have no idea where they heard of it).
I am trying to work this out...I quoted the law from DHL website already, waiting for the respond now.But I will not be able to purchase any pens about $160 for a while now.....
Thanks again!
I love the look of the pen....except for the clip.
That killed it for me.
I've had my Rembrandt for year now, and while the nib needed some smoothing due to some baby's bottom, once smoothed, it write quite reliably. My only complaint is that my Visconti logo for the "My Visconti" system would catch on random metal at work due to the magnet that didn't like to stick to the cap, and I eventually lost it. A replacement is relatively cheap, and its only cosmetic, so I'm would still consider it a great buy. Also, the magnetic cap is very convenient.
Yet another gorgeous pen I will probably miss out on. I'm saving up my pennies for a pen show on the 28th in SF.

Be sure to say hello, Liz and I will be there. On my way to the DC Supershow now... I guess I should either grow the beard back or update my photo so you can find me :)#
I'm kinda curious, actually....
The Visconti "Merry-go-round" kinda surprised me since it was a special thing created to raise funds for an Italian children's hospital.
Any idea if the proceeds are still going to that, and if it's still coming in the special packaging Visconti designed for it?

Hey @YankeeBravo -- The Merry-Go-Round will be shipped in the standard Rembrandt boxes, not the special packaging. I believe the proceeds for the hospital came from the initial sales from the manufacturer to vendors. Hope that helps.
JonasHeineman
Appreciate the info.
I'll stick with it, as I'm pleasantly surprised to see it turn up, even sans the packaging.
Incidentally, since the photo doesn't show it, you might wish to note that the cap band on the Merry-go-round isn't the same as the others in the Rembrandt line. The motifs and signature are replaced by children standing side-by-side to stick with the "child's drawing" theme.
JonasHeineman, thexquietxlife, dedalian - thank you!
What is the pen's length unposted?
Kimon
The pen's length unposted is 4.9 inches.
is the cap air-tight? i worry about nib drying out.

I have the Van Gogh that has this same magnetic closure, and I've never had issues with the nib drying out. I do notice some ink evaporation if I don't use it all the time, but it has never not started writing right away, and I typically leave it unused for a week or more at a time. Hope this helps!
Ereshkigal
It depends a bit on the ink. I ve had good results with mine using Waterman florida blue ink but not so much with some other inks where it dried out after two days unused.
