The Karas Kustoms EDK is a wonderful, rugged pen with great refill choices (Schmidt 2186, Fisher Space, Parker, etc), but if you buy directly from Karas Kustoms, you can get pretty much the same deal, or a slightly better deal, if you’re a first time buyer - without the uncertainty and delay of a MD purchase
MD pricing on this drop
50.99 EDK (basic)
Karas Kustoms’ pricing:
60.00 EDK (basic)
But, if you’re a first-time buyer you get a 10% discount for a 54.00 total. And, obviously, if you buy one of the more expensive versions of the pen, or multiple pens, the 10% discount will mean that your direct purchase price will even more substantially below the MD price.
If you’re not a first-time buyer, the MD pricing does give you a 9% discount, which isn’t bad – but it’s still only a $5.51 saving, which is offset by the inconvenience and waiting for MD shipping.
And, once again, the shipping charge more than doubles to $7.75, if you buy two pens … Who else increases the per-unit shipping cost when you buy two of the same item?
