Service great as always, and pen (TWSBI mini) excellent. However, the Herbin Ink Blotter is very disappointing: considering the price, the finish is rubbish: the lacquer chipped off the edge after only a couple of days on my desk & very light use (and let's face it, blotters don't get why anyone could call heavy use!) Herbin inks are very good, but this accessory does their reputation no favours.

Just what I was looking for. A whole range of writing equipment. Great prices and fast delivery.

Today, I received the pelikan M805 Vibrant blue. The nib had been tested and tuned. The enclosed "test card" is a nice gesture. Excellent service, as always. A happy customer!

Fantastic service, ordered late Friday received Tuesday morning. Ideal as the inks are for a birthday gift and I was expecting to give them after the event. Thank you very much

A great range of products, and always prompt delivery. I wouldn't buy my pens and ink anywhere else!

Best price, well packaged, arrived quick and safe. Surely will recommend and buy again.

I don't think you ever sleep. Electronic-age service for impatient addicts of pen and ink.

Thank you, to The Writing Desk for their faultless service.The web site was most detailed and informative. My online order over the weekend, of a Pelikan M205 was dealt with and despatched on the next working day, with the fountain pen arriving, to my delight, on Tuesday, carefully packaged and with a note from Martin showing that the nib had been checked and tested. As for the pen, I am thrilled with the M205. The Broad nib is smooth with a generous flow and pleasing amount of softness for a steel nib. Filled with Serenity Blue ink, it provides attractive shading. The pen is quite petite, but the cap posts deeply and securely and so the short length is not an issue for me. It is very light, but then people used to use a quill! The pen is a real joy to behold and to use and a welcome addition to my collection.

Excellent service. I ordered 3 times from The Writing Desk and will definitely do it again in the future.

Great service, Ordered inks and pens as it was my first order was worried about the inks being sent in airmail, all of which were well packed and arrived without issues.

Fantastic service, converter arrived this morning many thanks for your prompt solution to this minor error. Delighted with the product too. Many thanks
Ian MayersFrom: UKDate: 08/04/2016 at 11:18
goods arrived this morning excellent service but the converter for the pen to run on bottled ink was not included in the package. Is this to be sent under separate cover?

A good selection of quality items, excellent help when needed, fast and secure delivery, good/renewed internet site. A real pleasure to buy writing instruments in these conditions.

The service from the Writiing Desk is excellent in every regard. I have made two orders and both arrived quickly. The products I have ordered have been excellent. I especially love the cartridge refiller syringe pack - now all of my pens can have a variety of ink colours. The Pelikan fluorescent ink is superb too. Thank you.
JesúsFrom: NorwayDate: 05/04/2016 at 22:08
I've bought a TWSBI Eco and some ink samples. The package arrived perfectly safe, fast (a bit of delay in the shipment, probably due to Easter holidays) and at a really nice price in Europe. Compré una TWSBI Eco y unas muestras de tinta. El paquete llegó perfecto, rápidamente (aunque el envío se retrasó un poquito, probablemente porque fue justo después de Pascua) y a un precio más que bueno en Europa.
Jan ScottFrom: United KingdomDate: 05/04/2016 at 16:21
First choice for ink with one of the greatest choices on line in the UK in both bottle and cartridges. Great service, good prices.
Daniel K.From: HungaryDate: 03/04/2016 at 17:24
I'm really happy that I discovered The Writing Desk. The huge variety of products is amazing, and I believe is outstanding here in the EU. I ordered a Lamy Al-Star along with two bottles of Diamine ink and received it 9 working days after in perfect condition. The order was very nicely and securely packed with great care. I'm perfectly satisfied with the service that this site offers, and I would recommend it to every European pen enthusiast around. Thank you!
ColasFrom: FranceDate: 03/04/2016 at 16:24
Good and fast service. Thanks.
Dai EdwardsFrom: UKDate: 02/04/2016 at 21:58
I'm very happy with my purchase from here- so happy in fact that I quickly placed two more orders. All were received promptly and well packaged. I particularly like the ink samples which are great for bumping your order up to the minimum £20 for free delivery! The prices for most items are the best available and I'm sure I will be using the writing desk again.... (And again!)
AlexFrom: SpainDate: 29/03/2016 at 20:31
Surprised by the delivery! Did not expect it to be so fast. Everything was good! :) Thank you!
sara kFrom: JapanDate: 28/03/2016 at 13:25
I have ordered 10 Herbin Bleu Nuit 100ml bottles. This shop is so sincere and honest. I am to order again. Cannot find a shop like here in Japan, which has my favoite ink at this price. Thank you.

Received Sailor 1911 today with ink and cartridges. Great service - thorough packaging ! Decided to try it immediately (sometimes I wait weeks to try a new pen) because of the enthusiastic review on the Writing Desk Facebook page. Put in a blue Sailor cartridge and my immediate impression is that this is a fantastic, smooth writer. Thanks for introducing me to it.
Geoff WalshFrom: UKDate: 24/03/2016 at 13:52
