By Eric Lightwood-Ashcroft..
Have currently used 5 Bottles of Diamine Jet black ink,for music manuscripts.Previously I have used an amazing amount of Black ink by other Mfg Co's I could mention,but never really satisfied, & on a whim tried a bottle of Diamine.
I immediately went on line & bought 2 more ( 80ml)

Balanced pen - solid quality
By Lars ( Denmark ).
I bought the pear wood eMotion fountain pen with a fine nib, bacause I wanted a more solid pen than my plastic fountain pens. The nib had to be "written into place" - that took only a few pages - now it writes perfect. The balance is very good due to the "cigar" form. A small detail I have come t...

I love this pen
By Tina Livigni.
This is a spectacular pen, I am so happy to have found it. It’s size is great, feels natural in your hand and the weight is just right to give you the feel of this amazing Nib on paper. I have the fine Nib but I’m going to guess all the sizes are going be pretty good, I’m ordering a Med. next....
Amazing Pen ...
By Lars B ( Denmark ).
I am surprised by the quality of the nib ( Medium ) - flows as smooth as my decade old 14 K gold nib from Pelikan. Bought the black version - has silver stains = discrete japanese pen. Please note this is a slim version. I prefer to write with the pen capped to balance the weight. Good service f...

Visually Stunning & Writes Perfectly
By Mark Dillon.
As someone who is fortunate to have the Sailor Pro Gear Imperial and Sailor 1911 Black Luster the trim on this Sailor 1911 Ringless Blackout spoke to me immediately.

It’s as visually stunning in person as I expected but what most people care about is the writing experience and the pe...
Excellent pen. Best customer service!
By Nitin Gupta.
I got the all black version of this pen. Very elegant, and excellent quality. This is my favourite pen in my collection. And I can’t rave enough about the customer service; the best I have encountered. These guys take it to the next level!!
Superb pencils, and excellent value.
By A C.
Inherited one of these from my father, who used it for many years as an architect. I have used it heavily since, still going strong, and it is a versatile, beautifully balanced, robust pencil. Leads keep a good point and are easily sharpened. I now need additional ones, not replacements!
Does what it says on the bottle
By Kelly.

Wonderful in every way

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.

I love this pen! It’s beautiful, nicely balanced (don’t use it posted), and writes beautifully (but see my comments on the nib).
The Pen Company’s service was outstanding—timely delivery, perfect engraving, and great price. I would definitely buy from them again!

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...

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...
