Box of 12, works out to less than 45 cents per fountain pen! Great for fun. These are made in a China.

I paid $5.62! Feel I need to buy another box to lower the average cost.

If you buy 10 more boxes you'll lower your average cost to $4.89 per box. Do it :)
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and not paying full price like Joe Shmoe did. This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

How are they? Might grab a pack just because it's nice and cheap.

Edit: just noticed that it ships 1-2 months??!? I don't have prime so wouldn't it delay my order for a month or two?

Such a deal, except I don't even use fountain pens. Still tempted to order...sigh RFD curse.

I need a lot of cheap pens around the house but I'm not sure if cheap fountain pens would be a good idea.

I got a pack; they are serviceable - great for travel and general usage. Compared to a Pilot Metro or Lamy Safari - probably a tad "crappier", but writes well enough; haven't had hard starts or ink flow issues.

The casing seems to be sealed and don't see a slot for a needle fill.

A review on youtube (blue ink):

If you factor in price at under 50 cents a pen - pretty much can't be beat!

It's a really good price, but I'd just feel bad about pens like that being disposable. There's nothing actually "disposable" about it other than that they deliberately haven't given you a way to refill them, even though that would be easy. Personally I'd get a Platinum Preppy for the same price and refill it.

Heads up!

Got these on sale before through Amazon. When I got them, each and every one was as dry as a bone.

Save yourself the return process, not worth the price and having to send back. That’s my 4.82 cents worth. And don’t stock up because they don’t keep forever.

Great find. Let’s hope the majority of the pens in the box are usable (not dry)

I had good luck. The box I got were fine, no dry pens. Gave them away to colleagues to try fountain pens. Reason it’s 1 to 2 months shipping is I got the last box and posted when they arrived (after a price drop).

If you really want to get into fountain pens do your research and get your hands on some before you buy. If not you are going to end up with a drawer full of ink, pens and paper. Don't ask me how i know.

Just want to add in that, these Zebra nibs can be saved and can snap onto some of the cheapo generic piston fountain pen (Lamy style flat clipped-on nib ones) on eBay. If you are into nibs or making your own stub/italics nibs, make sure you save those parts. :)
