what a perfect gift

A Thing of Beauty is a Gift Forever
By JenniSJ62.
I have received the beautiful pen and refills. They were packed with careful consideration given to the long journey they needed to make to Australia.
It arrived promptly and heralded by a number of daily emails declaring where in transit it was. Thank you so very very much.
Best Pen I've ever held in my hand, EVER
By Lillibet Hunt.
Okay, you might think that title is an exaggeration and I am a newbie to fountain pens. Not so. I have used fountain pens since I was about seven years old, which was more than a half century ago. I splurged and finally got the sterling silver fountain pen in fine. My mistake was not splurging soo...
A great pen to hold
By L Smith.
I have already bought 4 of these pens, for presents, and I was so pleased with them that I have just bought 4 more, as presents. But I haven't bought myself one!
Good value
By mclsm.
A good quality, inexpensive, slim fountain pen which writes smoothly. It took a couple of weeks to 'break in'. Very good value.
Diamine Inks
By John Steele.
The Diamine inks are superb and a good choice. I ordered five bottles at 2pm Thursday they were in my post box at 8am Friday could not ask for better service from a company.
Outstanding.

This is probably the most I've spent on a steel nib pen, yet I have a hard time saying that this isn't the one most worth it. Simply superb, the black lacquer finish is mesmerizing.
Great step up
By Krose.
Replaced my steel with a gold EF nib, and it’s a much pleasanter experience.
The nib arrived cushioned in foam, on time, and at a UK leading price. Happy.
Fabulous
By Anna Krakowska .
Excellent customer service. The tombows dual brush pens are fantastic, great range of colours, perfect for calligraphy and drawings. Also the best price I could find online!
Happy writer
By Sarah W.
I struggle to find ink cartridges for my Sheaffer fountain pens, let alone purple ones. The Pen Company is my go-to for these. Delighted with my previous purchase last year and have come back for more!
A very good pen
By Mimi.
This is a very good pen and lasts a long time, it is worth its price and I love the colour. Overall this is a very good pen.
Excellent writer
By Ivan T..
I have purchased this pen with a Broad nib a few months ago and have been writing with it extensively ever since. The nib is very smooth, ink flow is quite balanced, a little on the wetter side though. The only note I would add is that the ink capacity (with cartridge converter) is rather low for a...
Wonderful Pen...Exceptional Service!

I have been thinking of buy this pen for quite awhile and I'm so glad I did. The weight and feeling is just incredible and the look, timeless. What has really impressed me is The Pen Company's approach to customer service. I had a few questions about the purchase and the team were very professional...

Bought this as a gift with an engraving. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase, delivered in a very prompt manner and is of a high standard, presented very well in a box. This will make a great present, thank you!
Excellent service & product
By Vicki Gould.
I had some great help from James regarding various ink cartridges. He recommended Diamine, saying there was an added bonus that they are British made. I have been extremely pleased with them and am back to buy more. The generic cartridges I had been using caused my pen to leak. The Diamine cartridg...
