Wonderful in every way
By Martine Faber.
This is definitely in the top three pens I've used (and I've used a LOT of pens). Ordered the blue finish from the US, and it got here in a matter of days. Excellent pen, excellent company.
Great mechanical pen. Right weight,elegant shape and color. Very convenient price
By Fernando Urrutia.
I love Lamy products, in fact I got the 50 years anniversary pens and fountain pen set.
The brand products including LAMY ECON MECHANICAL PENCIL 0.7MM are high quality, sophisticated and very compretitive in price vs quality.
Details such as the small steel wire in the LAMY Z10 eraser...

Brilliant- GVFC Classic Pernambuco Fine
By Z. Tucker.
U.S. customer here. Absolutely thrilled with this pen. Gorgeous, simplistic yet elegant aesthetics. Superb quality, weight, and feel. The bi-colour, 18-carot gold nib is beautifully designed and is by far the smoothest I’ve written with (including Sailor professional gear 21k in fine). It is, of c...
great pen
By arthur.
this pen is very comfortable and easy to hold with a comfortable grip.
A lovely writing instrument
By Robert Gaussen.
A lovely pen to write with, once I'd worked out the piston filler mechanism. Suits small hands like mine, comfortable to hold and use, and requires very little effort to write with. Once filled with ink, the green marbling goes a slightly darker shade, so beautiful to look at too. Excellent servi...
Hard working pen
By Ramon Pagan.
Very good
Superb quality
By Nicolas.
Wanted a pen with an oblique nib and this one ticked all the boxes. Well balanced and comfortable to write with. Excellent quality. Excellent service and delivery.
Perfect for both notes and longer form writing
By AT.
I have largish hands. But the pen is not too slim like, its first cousin. The pen is not too heavy, not too long. It feels just right. The 10 Ct gold finish adds class without the burden of opulence. And there's very little to criticise when it comes to refill smoothness.

Great pens!
By Charles D. Smith.
I have at least 6 Kaweco fountain pens in plastic, brass, and grey aluminum, and I love them all. One word about the brass model- HEAVY, almost bulky. But it has its own charm and appeal. Kaweco makes quality goods; you will not be disappointed with any of them!!!
Nice looking fountain pen
By Lok.
Very nice looking fountain pen, good in writing
It brings a smile to my face!
By Chad .
James-

I cannot thank you enough for the time you spent helping me to select the proper nib size for my M1000.

I received the pen today. It is without a doubt the smoothest writing nib that I have ever used. As you know, I selected the medium, with your assistance.
The only firm to provide DUNHILL pen refills
By Brian.
I was given an Anniversary gift by my wife of a Dunhill pen. After a couple of years I found that Dunhill no longer sold their own brand pens or refills and I was left with a useless gift. After trying to find a refill in Bath, Cardiff and London over 3 years, The Pen Company came to the rescue and...
Order of pen as a wedding present
By Hannah.
I have ordered a pen as a wedding present for my other half.
Since I normally don't write reviews, this is the first of its kind. However, I was so blown away by the customer service that I had to share it.

I asked for the pen to be engraved and within 10 minutes of ordering...

Great service. Very fast dispatch and t...
