Product Description
Surrealist painter Salvador Dalí may have led a bizarre life, but his cultural impact in the 20th century can’t be overstated. In 1942 the artist published his autobiography, “The Secret Life of Dalí,” in which he details his many exploits and rare ideologies Read More

This is joke, not a pen. If you hold on a bit longer, they will pay you to take one.

The sole reason pens like this sell at prices like this (and MUCH worse), it that people continue to buy them.

As someone who is not part of the writing community who's most expensive pen cost $20, can someone in the community explain to me the price here? I'm just curious. A lot of people in the comments here are explaining why they don't think it's worth it (e.g. because it's plastic or because the tip is steel), so just want someone to explain/defend the price here. Maybe the person doing the drop can explain? I mean the price drop for roller is $100, so the steel nib accounts for $100, why is the resin body worth $329? Or $2,100 if the MSRP is to be believed?

I appreciate the advice from everyone here, though I never had any intention of participating in this drop, nor, I confess, spending more than $20 on any pen. I just wanted to see their marketing team try to sell this. I mean, you figure someone had the balls to list any pen as being with $2,200 retail, it'd better have dropped from the pearly gates of heaven by St. Peter himself (presumably while crossing these marketers' names off the list of admitants). Or, you know, at least they'd have the guts to show up in the comments to try to defend themselves... So, to recap (heh), there are: No precious metals or decorative gemstones No particularly fancy machining techniques No super innovative design aspects No stand or accessories for the pen No particular relevance to Dalì But what you get for your $420 is: Some pretty plastic A (probably okay quality) steel nib A certificate that you're guillible(?) If anyone is looking for a good alternative, check the sites above me from people who know about nice pens and buy one, then spend the remaining $300 or so that you save on something more appropriately priced. 3 more nice pens? A ps5? 5 bottles of Lagavulin 16? Idk, use your new fancy pen to write out the pros and cons, just stay away from this drop!

Way to expensive for just a stainless nib. It's not even a pleasant shape.

680 is way overpriced. Any pen in this price range must have at least a gold nib.

At $2200 msrp, it better be more than a gold nib...24k gold ink would be a start.

If they keep this up, they should change their name to, "Droppings."

I would expect three pens with gold nibs at this price.

I did the math, a heavy nib weighs 0.7 grams, gold costs about $39 for 0.7 grams....assuming its solid gold nib...you’d want at least 55pens to cover $2200 in gold.
