This site is a bit different to most other pen sites, I don’t just sell things, to me it’s a lifelong hobby and interest; using, repairing and collecting Fountain Pens and Ink

First and foremost I aim to provide a personal service, in order to give you a good experience, and secondly and hopefully to help develop your interest in Fountain Pens. I can also advise you on the different inks available


I enjoy hearing about your own Fountain Pens, your experiences with them and also your ink preferences, likes and dislikes.

NOTE:  I now check and adjust the nibs on ALL fountain Pens before delivery, as part of my service, including a writing test on Extra Fine and Fine Nibs, so there may be traces of ink present.

And I will also do special tuning a smoothing upon request.

Nib Grinding/Re-shaping can be done for a small charge

Did you know I have well nearly 200 different inks in stock?……..I’m happy to answer any questions you may have about the inks I have on this site.
