I paid $45 for this small pen and I think it is totally worth it. Thank you so much! This is going to be my favorite for the year and beyond!

Can someone send me my tracking ID again? I have not received my pen and it's been ages. I've already misplaced the tracking ID. Someone please get back to me. I've been holding off buying a stylus for a year now..

Received the wrong item, they're fixing it fantastically. Great company to work with.

Has anyone else gotten bog oak? Mine arrived today and it was a brown more like the slavaged oak, not a single trace of black.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi there again, any updates? Would appreciate at least a shipping tracker.

No pen delivery yet. A simple Model R - it appears in the comments some have received theirs over a month ago. Have all Model Rs shipped?

Poh Xing Wei - Our bog oak just arrived this week. We'll be wrapping up the balance of the pens shortly. Unless international shipping takes forever you will definitely have your pen by Christmas. Thank you for your patience.

Nicholas - So glad you like your Model C!

Dylan - I'm sorry about the issues with your nib. Can you shoot us a message at service@allegorygoods.com so we can get it taken care of for you?

I wonder if I will get my pen before Christmas.

Review from Kickstarter
Got my olive wood model C and it was gorgeous, was expecting a more raw finish, but wouldn't change a thing. Can't wait for my bog oak pencil!
Dylan Shad
Review from Kickstarter
@chad - I love my pen (model F), but I believe the nib is messed up. At first I thought it was something i was doing wrong (it has been a VERY long time since I used a fountain pen), but the more I looked into it the more it seems that it is simply borked. It is scratchy, and the flow is inconsistent. How might I go about replacing the nib? Other than that, it's a beautiful pen which I have received numerous comments on. I just wish it wrote better. :/
Chad Schumacher
Review from Kickstarter
Joseph - I'm so glad you are loving your pens! The alternate nib sizes (non-medium nibs) need to be removed from the section and swapped with the nib already installed in your Model F. You can use either feed, but I prefer to keep the existing feed in the Model F with the new nib. You can always reach us at service@allegorygoods.com if you have any questions.

Review from Kickstarter
I received two pens in olive wood this week. Lovely! I had someone take one right out of my hand to admire it, haha (they did, of course, return it). The model F writes very smoothly without weeping or throwing spots The weight is nice and balanced with the cap on the post. The model C has a simple elegance and a satisfying "click." My only complaint: I ordered an additional nib in "extra fine," but the nib is not compatible with the model F. It is a different design altogether than the nib that came with the pen, so i guess I will use it in a different pen.

Review from Kickstarter
I got my model m about a week ago and it's so handy. It fits in my bifold which is nice since women's pants don't have deep enough pockets for a full-length pen. I've received many compliments on it (the olive wood is gorgeous). I hope bog oak backers will receive their rewards soon; as the owner of a bog oak pen, I can assure you it'll be worth the wait.

Hi all - posting update now. Apologies for the silence the last couple weeks - will clear everything up in the update.
Nicolas Jackson
Review from Kickstarter
If you didn't have big oak it might be worth contacting them through the message or support on their site to get an update.
Mike Patterson

Wanted to drop a note in here to say thank you. The replacement refill for my Model R works great, so does the alternative refill you sent along with it. Really impressed with the customer service, good job!

@Nicolas Jackson, I just got mine yesterday. It's a nice pen. Mine was in kauri wood.
Joshua Unorski
Review from Kickstarter
Just wondering if my order is going to be shipped together. I pledged for a Model C then on backerkit added on a Model R. I haven't gotten a shipping notification yet. Just looking for an ETA.
Nicolas Jackson
Review from Kickstarter
Anyone got the model Cs yet?
Wanda Aasen
Review from Kickstarter
Got mine, it writes and feels great, thank you.
Scott Goolsby
Review from Kickstarter
So that solves the issue of the ink cartridge but now that I can write with it I see that the nib is very jacked. The tines of it are not aligned. The right nib is higher than the left, higher and longer.
Scott Goolsby
Review from Kickstarter
Doh!! So sorry! Total ditz moment on my end. That solves the problem hahahha thank you!

*Chad my autocorrect is the worst thing ever.

Review from Kickstarter
Awesome chase that's me!
Chad Schumacher
Review from Kickstarter
@Scott Goolsby - It sounds like the pre-filled cartridge is still up inside the barrel of your pen. That's the only reason the piston filler wouldn't be fitting for you. Let me know if that solves the problem you're having.
Chad Schumacher
Review from Kickstarter
@Nicholas Jackson - We are about 3/4 of the way through shipping. The next batch to ship will be Model C's.
Scott Goolsby
Review from Kickstarter
The ink converter that came with my pen is far too long for the pen and doesn’t fit.
