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...

Gorgeous materials, Beautifully crafted,
By Zephyr.
This item is flawless - From texture to colour to craftsmanship. Even the sound of the leather in loading the pens and closing the case carries appeal. The quality promises a lifetime of utility. Service from James and The Pen Company was excellent. Many thanks.
Excellent and well recognized as such in writing instruments.
By Paul J. Plaisance, Jr., PE.
I have had and used many of your pens and mechanical pencil sets(10 ct gold & Black). They are excellent writing instruments. I have been proud to use and lose them for over 40 years! I cried over every one I lost but was always able to replace them. I had many sets of the Classic series includ...

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.

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!
