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?

Could be that the ink that comes with it is a dry ink, the nib may also be affected with "baby's bottom" and could need some smoothing l

Mine had the same problem actually, until I put iroshikuzu tsutsuji in it and it was wet as firehose. Guess the ink it comes with is a bit too dry
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...
A converter is pictured, but not listed with the package contents. Is a converter included?
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....

I am running the nib through an ultrasonic cleaner, see if it is any leftover detritus from manufacturing. If it still doesn't write well, I will contact support.
Wow. That is some bad math, 2 out of 5. These are not cheap pens,either.

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 9/1.
Fine Point only in Purple? Bummer. Was quite interested until that discovery.

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.
