Diamine Bilberry Cartridges
By Joy Christopher.
Wow. I can't believe the speed with which this arrived. Ordered one evening and here by lunchtime the next day. I ordered several colours but only tried Diamine Bilberry so far. Lovely colour and great quality as you'd expect from Diamine inks. Fast drying and glides over the paper. But going back t...
Can't Get Enough off this Pen
By Mrs C.
It's strange how things pann out in the pen world. I bought one of these as I come under the bracket of 'Dog' in the Chinese Zodiac. I'd never tried a Cross pen before. I wondered if it would bring me luck. I was expecting to be underwhelmed and have no sound reason for that. But hey ... happy endin...
A truly elegant, significant pen!
By Guy Devyatkin.
I have had my PELIKAN SOUVERÄN M805 (blue-black with a fine nib) for about a year, and, in this time, I have only come to admire its qualities even more. These features fall into several categories: appearance, feel, mechanism, operation, and durability. The M805 is beautiful, especially with the...
Diplomat Traveller Ballpoint Pen Excellent
By Kathy.
The Diplomat Traveller Ballpoint Pen was delivered inside a day and it was engraved as well. Excellent service and a lovely pen. Thankyou
By Daryl.
What a solid pen it is! Fair weight distribution
A fine heirloom delivered by even finer retailers!
By LH.
I was initially turned off by the poor quality control of Pelikan's 18k nib, many warnings and advice that to buy a Souverän is to also pay a nibmeister to get it right. I probably annoyed the service team by stressing this many times but it arrived with elegant packaging and , yes, smooth, wet and...
Graceful & Elegant like a Rolls Royce
By Daryl.
It sure is a small pulchritude pen.
By Richard.
What a beautifully tactile thing this is. Excellent in every respect, I had mine engraved and delivered within 23 hours of ordering - well done The Pen Company!
Sterling Silver with oblique medium nib
STERLING SILVER GRAF VON FABER-CASTELL CLASSIC FOUNTAIN PEN - I took delivery of this pen some days ago, and whilst I’m lucky enough to own a number of other premium and limited edition fountain pens, think I probably agree with the lady reviewer who said it was the best fountain pen EVER.
Excellent service, excellent pen
By Kevin W..
Love my new Brass Sport with B nib. Also - very pleased with the quality and speed of service to BC, Canada from The Pen Company.
Great pen & fantastic service!
By Hao.
Pelikan M400 is a great pen. The size with cap seems small, but the size without cap is actually almost the same with M600, which is just the right size in hand. Love it very much!

Pelikan M600 is a great pen with just the right size in hand. Love it very much!

The Pen Company is an amazing fountain pen seller. My original selection was affected because of Pelikan's delay due to Covid-19. After communication, James explained the details and I ended up with changin...
I give this journal five stars and above.

Olivine is my Favorite Green
By Joe.
This stuff is awesome. It’s very well behaved and is great for daily writing on just about any kind of paper. Olivine is my new favorite. It’s a deep, dark green that has some good shading if you use it with fat juicy nibs. With a fine nib it’s lighter and dries almost immediately which is gre...
Glass Smooth Nib & Excellent Service!
By Omniprime.
I bought this as a replacement nib to replace the damaged one on my Guilloche Chevron. The nib is glass smooth just as the original, incredibly satisfying to write with!

I also greatly appreciate the great instructions that came with my order as it ensured I replaced the nib correctly,...
Beautiful pens
By Carol Edwards.
I love these Schneider pens, and have bought many for presents. They are attractive to look at, and feel very comfortable to write with. I never buy any other pens now. Highly recommended.
Fountain pen Fine nib
By Chioto S..
Great pen over all. I should have gotten the medium nib due to my writing style however even so I love the weight of the pen in hand and the metal/wood look. I would and plan to buy from this company again.
Awesome instrument, awesome service
By Kevin Gates.
James helped me every step of the way and saw my complicated order through to the end. Top-notch all the way.
