Fisher chrome space pen bullet
By Simon m.
I owned one when I was like in my 20's and time has passed I'm now in my 50's I lost it. I love a good pen and own quite a few but something told me to look for this one again. I found the pen company to not only have plenty of choice but also a fantastic price and free engraving was a bonus. It was...
Wonderful everything
By David R.
First, I have a few top shelf FPs, and shop the price before purchase.. I ordered the pen ~noon last Tuesday, and had it in my hands the very next day, Wednesday, @ 11 AM EST in metro Atlanta.
The pen? M1000-I already had the M800, and was disappointed @ it's lack of flex, nib size, and smalli...
Great delivery speed quality product
By M4tchb0X.
Love the Lamy Aion rollerball, nice grip and smooth feel. Balance wise it's perfect without the cap, cap is a bit heavy and I grip closer to the tip so FYI
To replace my lost pens
By SMiddleton.
I love the Lamy Joy calligraphy pens and mine disappeared somewhere between Southampton and home! So I am replacing them.
Very Stylish and Sturdy
By Andy Neilsen .
This is a very nice roller pen that is super sturdy and heavy. I do have rather large hands and it makes the larger diameter of the pen more suitable to write. The ink flows smoothly and it looks very cool. As an architect, it matches well with my style and clients seem to enjoy watching me draw wit...
Lovely pen.
By Patrick.
I fell in love with this pen upon seeing it here, and had to purchase one. Every bit as nice as it looks in the images. Cap is a bit heavy; still deciding if I enjoy writing posted or not. Using the wood for grip it’s more balanced when posting and I enjoy the feel of the flat wood surfaces. The f...
Awesome Company

I ordered a Graf von Faber Castell Mechanical Pencil on a Friday from the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Honolulu Hawaii and received it on Tuesday, which is a day earlier than promised! The product came securely packaged and in a beautiful stylish pencil case holder. Thank you The Pen Company for e...
More than 20 years a fantastic choice.
By Roger .
I have been a customer for over 20 years. I have a collection of at least 100 fountain pens. Diamine is my favourite. Family are almost with me, although they do spring a surprise present, at Xmas, of an unknown brand for "Try this!!" Perhaps only once, to protect their feelings. Are there more Dia...
Genuine nib, superb performance.
By Dr Daniel Mong.
Bought the Extra Fine variation of the GVFC Intuition nib from The Pen Company due to a lack of supply at the local Graf Von Faber-Castell stores in Malaysia. The buying experience from The Pen Company was smooth and their appointed FedEx shipping was great (didn't know that FedEx provides assistanc...

Amazing value and service
By Priya .
I received the pen (purchased from a different company) as a gift many years ago. When the refill ran out I was unsure where to purchase more, until I stumbled upon the pen company whilst searching the Internet. I have been ordering my refills from them ever since. Great value and service. Once I ha...
Amazing nib
By AJ.
I got the Pelikan M800 IB nib. I combine it with Pelikan inks . It works amazingly well. This nibs are very wet and they benefit with the drier qualities of the Pelikan ink. It has amazing line variaron . It is broad but very useable . My favourite nib so far !
Real Class

Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze

I received this pen in extra fine a couple of weeks ago from The Pen Company in the UK. Fast international delivery to USA. The pen nib is a true extra fine, line width 0.38 mm. solid pen construction, beautiful 18kt Gold nib with the bronze trim. It is a beautiful writer. I agree with Keon Tom comm...
By Mike.
I was a little wary when placing the order as I hadn't heard of this company before, and the prices were almost "too good to be true". Well I am glad I did as I received the pen the next day and the engraving looks superb. Highly recommend and will definitely be buying from them again
Absolutely beautiful, and beautifully made too...
By Slurryoffagrape.
Absolutely beautiful, and beautifully made too. Ok, so it's as simple a pen as they come, design-wise, but nothing is skimped and the fit, finish, and attention to detail are superb, it really is. I thought the 'rubber' O ring that holds the cap in place was nicked and split partway through. Luckily...
