The pens are fantastic. So far, Ive only used them with cartridges of blendable inks that Pilot produces specifically for these pens. I bought converters for each pen, but haven't used them. Not all inks are chemically compatible to best take advantage of the pen's design. Packaging the pens with this notebook is a recipe for frustration. Moleskine notebooks are notoriously finicky about what media the paper tolerates. Considering the cost of the notebook compared with the pens ... In my opinion, it's wasted money. I will be buying these pens for a gift, but not from Massdrop, as I have no use for the notebook, and refuse to include it with the gift.

I also do not understand why MD has tied the Moleskine notebook and the Pilot Parallels together not to mention that the price is not very attractive, either. However, considering that the price of CON-40 is about $ 7 in Korea, if I include four CON-40s, I have a a little profit than purchasing from Amazon, so I participate in drop.
Moleskine? I think I can find somewhere else to use it.

The Moleskine paper won't be able to stand up under the ink flow of these pens. A shame the drop had to throw it in. I pass.

1000% correct. You can get the "Pilot Parallel Pen Hand Lettering Calligraphy Set" on GouletPens for $1.99 cheaper and it comes with a book on hand lettering that is at least useful. I guess the Moleskine can be useful if you need to start a fire.

This is a bad deal... but these are great pens.
Amazon prices are $23 for the four pens and $15 for the notebook (which isn't great with fountain pen ink) = $38.

Agree they are smooth. But they lay down a lot of ink and most paper can't take it, even 'fountain pen friendly' paper.

So, I definitely want the pens but can someone help me decide on whether I should get one converter or four? I have bottled ink for some other pen's so I'm thinking I need at least 1. I also have a pilot metropolitan with the con-20 style converter. I was thinking getting the 4 converters could be useful to upgrade the converter in that pen. But then again, do I really need 4 proprietary converters?
Can anyone comment on potential bleed? With these pens (already got the 3.8mm) bleed is very common on all but the thickest of papers. How does this notebook stack up?
P.S. I've been looking at these pens for a long time and the price for the drop is fantastic. The converters are cheap as well and the notebook is actually just free.

Depending on how you work you don't need cartridges or a converter as these can be dipped, on top of that you and use a brush to get a rainbow effect on the nibs. That said having a converter for each is a splendid idea. Here is a video I found demonstrating what I mean.

I have a converter for each pen, it's just more convenient. If you often switch between pens then having multiple converters is a must. As for the notebook... sad to say the Moleskine is a bad choice to bundle with these pens. Nothing but the best fountain pen friendly paper should be used with these pens. And the Moleskine ain't it.
