After getting into the hobby for a couple of years, I found myself looking at Massdrop more often for pens at 150+ MSRP. Anything that's below this sales price, I would have bought it elsewhere already if I really want it. I like new pens, special editions/colors for cheaper pens (<$250 e.g. Pelikan M200/Lamy Alstar with new colors), and classic, well-know designs at higher price (e.g. Visoconti homosapien) .
I like small-medium sized pens, because I have small hands. F/M are my favorite nib sizes, but I also love specialty nibs, such as 'zoom', 'master grind', 'needle point' and so on. The more readily available stub doesn't interest me as much to me honest.
I find myself very rarely try new brands on Massdrop... Unless the brand is really well-know, and/or the pen is really pretty. I think maybe include some links to reviews/introductions to the new pens would help with those lesser know brands. (I can search those for myself but it's just more convenient).
For particular models, I would love to see Platinum 3776 as well!!

Copper, Brass and Titanium pens
Anybody interested in a click pen machined from Copper, Brass or Titanium? Would fit G2 pilot style cartridge and Parker style. Brush or tumbled finishes. Maybe some anodized Titanium? [image] [image]
I would love a titanium click pen, and I might buy a few of them (to give them as presents to my friends)
3D-Printed Fountain Pens
[image] You'd think that, with the popularity of 3D printers, there'd be dozens of 3D-printed fountain pens on the market. Thankfully, that's not been the case. I think, for a 3D-printed pen to succeed, it has to bring something new to the t...
Saw these at a show and they are really cool!
