Fantastic service
By Chris.
I have a much cherished Zoom 101 that had suffered a crack in the plastic nib holder. I had been looking for a replacement nib for a while, I was so glad when they came back in stock. Fast delivery and perfect quality. Thank you.
Ballpoint red/silver
By Wladimir Moreno.
Nice looking:)
Lovely pen!
By Toby.
1.1mm stub nib, Amber

Really lovely pen!!! The included adaptor was very easy to use and pen writes beautifully. It's a big pen but not over-large and feels great to use. Amber colour is gorgeous and a lovely object to behold.

I dithered about treating myself to this pen fo...
Excellent
By Fez.
Very high quality pen which looks stunning and has the perfect weight to it. It comes in a suave matte black presentation box and writes very smoothly. To top it off the free laser engraving was spot on.
Glides on like a dream
By Dr Pallavi Nemane .
Got it as a gift in a b2b setup
Read about the refill online after figuring out the brand n the made in germany logo
There has been no looking back thence,its an edge over luxor A7,the other favourite pen !!
I just love it the weight is balanced and the nib is clear cut
By Fadi Balhawan.
Go this pen after a lot of research on the brand
It’s the most reliable pen I experienced
Best Parker style G2 refills ever
By Subham Bhattacharya .
This refill worked wonders and this has completely transformed one of my jotters. I collect jotter pens and have tried a lot of the refills available. These works best followed by Schneider slider 755 as a distant second. The quinkflow supplied with jotters comes way down.
Weighty and Smooth
By Brian M. .
I just ordered this pen as I ordered it’s sibling and have thoroughly enjoyed my writing experience. This pen is elegant yet professional in its appearance and commandingly confident in its weight. The medium nib on this pen writes extremely smooth, even more so than my far more expensive Sailor....
Excellent service
By Mahmood.
The case is excellent as is dealing with the pen company thanks
I love these
By Emma.
These are the best brush pens I’ve ever seen, they don’t dry up and the colours are really amazing! Would definitely buy again!
Very durable
By Ramel.
Have had this pencil for over 3 years and still going good. It’s a very nice pencil. Very comfortable to hold and is nice to hold.
Excellent value
By ChrisR.
The packaging was superb. The classy Conklin box was enclosed in a cardboard box cushioned with paper and immaculately taped. Many other vendors just plonk the pen in a padded envelope. The pen itself looks much more expensive than it is. The nib is an attractive two-colour with the iconic cresce...
The best FP I’ve ever used
By John.
I received a new Pelikan M600, green striated & black with a broad nib one week after ordering it from the UK. It was superbly packaged and fills perfectly and writes beautifully; I never knew what writing buttery meant until I used this pen. The M600 is classy, exceptionally well made and is truly...
Marvellous quality
By David.
I own the Pernambuco for a decade now and have just added the Silver Sterling to the collection. I never felt more inclined to take out the pen to jot down something than with these tools. Such an amazing feeling. I am left-handed and it doesn't scratch or smear like I experience with others (medium...
Excellent pen, excellent service
By Marv.
A substantial, smooth writing pen at an attractive price. The 1000 is comparable to the Montblanc 149 in every respect. The Pelikan 1000 fine nib looks to be approximate to the Montblanc medium nib
A wonderful waterproof ink
By Agnes Leung.
Great colour and quality ink.
Excellent!
By Linda A Jones.
I have bought Diamine ink from the Pen Company previously. This time I needed regular ink, but I wanted to try the Diamine Shimmer ink. The shimmer ink is stunning! I can use it for multiple projects, or just for writing, the inks are fabulous!
The service I have had from the Pen Company on th...
Great pen.
By Stuart Simpson.
Used Sheaffer many years ago and it was a great pen. Purchased this fountain pen and it writes wonderfully, doesn't scratch the paper like other pens, writes so smooth. Used other fountain pens and this is far superior. I've just ordered a Sheaffer 300 Rollerball and will be ordering the Ballpoint t...
Have been using these for 20 years

Great grip and tremendously writable when it hits my legal pad!

By Amrik Singh.
