Arrgh. Just saw the email and all the versions I wanted to buy are sold out. And this is the "just right" Pelikan size for me! I really need the M805 in blue, pretty please! Can you get a few more of those?? This is a smoking good price. Lowest price I've seen right now is $379 plus shipping....

Massdrop HQ is in San Fransciso, so I guess they have to tack on CA sales tax for those who have a CA shipping address. The cheapest I have seen is a few pennies under $395 (shipping incl.), so unless your sales tax amounts to about $35, this would still be a better deal.

I'd get both, serious savings :3
I also personally wouldnt get the Izumo Tagayasan (Bombay Black wood) if thats the one you have for around $400.
Also note, the Izumo is a massive pen. Larger than an Montblanc 149. The M800 sits roughly between the MB 149 and the MB 146 length-wise uncapped. Closer to the MB 146 in size in diameter/capped length. If you've used a MB 149 or something of similar size (Yard O Led Grand Victorian for example) and found them too big, M800 might just slightly be the better choice over the Izumo.
