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.
