What is Massdrop you ask? Well, it’s pretty simple. Massdrop is a community of people that vote on what products they want to buy. Massdrop contacts the companies, sets the sale up, and the more people that commit, the better the pricing for you. Simple as that. Continuing with their premium writing selections, they are offering up the Lanier Classic Elite Fountain Pen in Yellow Box Elder with gunmetal trim. I’ve been a member of Massdrop for a while now, I’ve purchased a few things and it’s been a great retail experience so far.
- Hand-crafted individually by Lanier
- Yellow box elder barrel
- Gunmetal plating
- German made nib with iridium tip
- Postable cap (threaded, screw-on)
- Total length: 5.26 in (13.35 cm)
- Cap length: 2.36 in (6 cm)
- 1.18 oz (33.45 g)
The Lanier Elite is a great looking fountain pen, being offered at a discount by Massdrop. I really like how the cap screws on both the grip and tail sections – making for a secure post. The medium nib looks to lay down a nice line with some slight variation as shown in Massdrop’s photos. The Box Elder Wood looks great against the gunmetal trim. Unfortunately at the time of posting, I was unable to have a pen in hand because they are being custom made for the drop. I can’t wait to get my hands on one to put it through its paces!
Each pen is being hand made to order, they will ship out weekly in groups of 15. All of the pens will be custom made and shipped out by mid-February 2015. If you like what you see, be sure to check out the drop HERE and snag one for yourself!
