The very picture of an outrageously over-priced pen--not that it isn't a very nice pen, but at that price, no way Jose!

Although almost all of the modern fountain pens are "overpriced", this one's actually having 50% discount, so compared to retail prices of Aurora, visconti, wahl eversharp and other modern semi flex producers, this is a very sensible price.

Well I really don't like montegrappa pens so this deal is not for me, but for anyone interested in it, this is one of the best deals around

Lol I'm not getting good vibes from that guy. But I have the feeling that you would be genuinely surprised for how outlandish prices many fountain pens are sold. www.chatterleyluxuries.com this is the website I usually buy my pens from. He sells at least one $1k+ a day if not more. There are some 15k+ pens! Unfortunately, I've sinked some good cash into fp business as well...

I've been in the pen game for many years and I'm well aware of the stupid prices some people pay for stupid expensive pens. A half-price, twenty thousand dollar pen is not a good deal, even though it's half-price. I'm certainly aware that some people buy them (at both prices) but that's not really what pens are for and about--those folks aren't pen-people, they're just people with too much money and they buy lots of crazy stuff. You can diamond-encrust damn near anything, but that doesn't make it a better "anything"--or a good deal when it goes on sale--even on MD. It's just cheaper than it used to be.

Well I agree on most of the things you said, but I'm still drawn to arco Celluloid unfortunately, independent of the price 😭
