I just recently got my first box. I got five ink samples and one pen. The quality of the pen and the ink is not in question. It was a nice lamy pen and the harry potter inks from montegrappa.
My biggest problem is that my only request was no yellow. No yellow pens, no yellow ink. I got a yellow pen.
I don't mind so much, I will probably end up giving the pen away because I cannot stand yellow, but why did you bother to ask if you were going to ignore the request.
Also, I dont see a way to update any preferences once you start the monthly subscription
Very disappointed in the inexpensive pen. I don’t expect to like every pen, but I do expect them to be close to $75. The notebook did not make up the difference. I’ll give my subscription one more month to see if it imprioves.
I had this subscription box for 3 months. Two out of the three pens I adored (the one I didn't my Fiancee really likes so that's good), but the ink samples that came with the box were very lack luster. It was essentially the same colors each time: black, red, yellow and/or orange, maybe a green or purple. Only once did I get an extra that wasn't ink samples (I selected ink, case, notebook -- so maybe that was my bad I guess?) I'm an avid ink collector so I was rather disappointed and opted not to downgrade to their ink box only now that I'm happy with my pens.
So if you're looking to expand your pen collection with some nice, sometime expensive pens, but not picky about what kind/brand: Absolutely!
If you're looking for pens AND interesting inks: Maybe not for you.
I was very excited to get my first box! But oh so disappointed in it's color. I contacted CS to see if I could possibly exchange it. They said yes and did! I'm more than satisfied with the outcome. I live the color of the Platinum Procyon pen I received! And I like the pen very much. I would suggest you give this Company a try!
I really like the element of surprise with the incredible Box absolutely enjoying the Kaweco Sport and the various ink samples - excited to see what comes next
