Hello, new to Massdrop, but not new to Retros. I was wondering if there may be a *spare* one of these out there that someone may be willing to part with. I unfortunately missed this one. I do some Retro customizing if that sweetens the pot for anyone

We're trying to work something out again, but haven't been able to get anything planned for the near future yet.
If you subscribe to the Writing community already, you'll receive any email notification of a new Retro 51 project that needs voting and member input to create. If for some reason were able to run more of the Herringbone style, make sure to hit the Request button so you can receive that email notification as well.
In the meantime, keep posting your feedback and requests! This really helps us show Retro 51 how much Writing members want a return of a custom pen.

Is it normal that the black finishing is much paler on the pen conpared to the cap?... Surely I haven't worn it out with 2 hours of use :(

I was an early participant from the FIRST drop and I still haven't received my pen even though it's nearly six weeks since it had purportedly been sent out (usual delivery time about 2-3 weeks at most from previous purchases), after waiting several months for the pen to be manufactured. A much later purchase of another pen (the Namisu Orion) had arrived yesterday. A check with the tracking facility showed no progress from September 7th onward. A support ticket sent more than a week ago only received an automated response from one Nelson Wu, with no sign of any other action from Massdrop. What happened to my pen?

Mind F nib arrived yesterday. After a quick wash with soapy water to remove any manufacturing oil, I filled it with a non-challenging ink, Private Reserve American Blue. It is a super wet writer. No complaints, but more time is required for a final verdict.

Woot woot. Mine (Medium) just came in, filled it right away with Pelikan Edelstein Topaz.
Very smooth, wet writer. No skips or hard starts, tines were aligned.
