It is a pleasant surprise nowadays to deal with a company that delivers on its service. The service was not only first class in its delivery, but in its entire glory. Painless to order competitively charged first class material (difficult to find elsewhere - and i searched), a delight to receive on time. Thank you for looking after me, Dr Sotos Generalis.

Great service and prompt delivery. Would recommend this company for any quality fountain pens. I particularly liked the option to purchase specific pen nibs and converters, which you do not get from other sites or stores. Many thanks.
JEFFERY BALDWINFrom: United KingdomDate: 03/08/2014 at 12:41
Fast efficient service. Pen ran out of ink incredibly quickly until i found out how to fill it correctly. Otherwise it is exactly what i wanted. thank you.

Dear The Writing desk! Thank you very much for the magnificent fountain pen! Your service and product quality is excellent. I really like Your store.
Geoffrey HawthornFrom: United KingdomDate: 17/07/2014 at 12:11
The Writing Desk really is the only place to go for writing materials. A truly perfect service in every respect. This time for Rhodia notebooks and another bottle of the wonderful Faber-Castell ink.
Gregor McIntyreFrom: United KingdomDate: 17/07/2014 at 11:23
Many thanks to Anna and Martin at The Writing Desk. You've helped me get the best from my new TWSBI Classic and I love it! Thanks for prompt delivery and advice
Yvonne lagerlofFrom: SwedenDate: 15/07/2014 at 14:01
THANK YOU for your kindness!! In spite of my bad English...I get the pen today and I hope my son will be pleased. As you know I had some difficulties with payment with my bankcard. Thank you even for all help! Regards, Yvonne Lagerlöf
Robert MayFrom: UKDate: 15/07/2014 at 12:32
My TWSBI amber Vac 700 arrived by first class post this morning - as I had hoped; first class service and response from The Writing Desk. The pen, its packaging and accessories are impressive and probably reflect the care, thought and attention taken by the manufacturer. The ink-filling mechanism is both interesting as a concept and to witness! I switched to fine nibs a couple of years ago on my return to fountain pens and an up-to-then lifetime using medium. First impressions of the pen are very positive. One observation is that the fine nib is, I find, slightly finer than my Parker Duofold and Lamy Vista pens, but writes very clearly. Perhaps there should be a world standard for nibs? The Vac 700 fits nicely, price-wise, between the other two pens. I note that The Writing Desk does not stock amber medium nibs.
Georgina LawesFrom: United KingdomDate: 15/07/2014 at 12:20
Great site, easy to order, no fuss delivery. Thanks.
Cliff GilliesFrom: UKDate: 08/07/2014 at 16:32
Amazingly fast service. Ordered Monday PM. Was on my desk this morning, Tuesday, at 9am. Brilliant.
StephanosFrom: UKDate: 08/07/2014 at 14:04
Excellent in every respect: good range of items, decent prices and the service is fast, friendly and competent. I am a happy repeat customer.
Rodolfo CanetFrom: España/SpainDate: 04/07/2014 at 08:17
Very good service, as always. Quite satisfied with the two Rohrer&Klinger inks purchased. I like paying for ink and not for glass, and that's what you get: good ink at a nice price.
OvidiuFrom: RomaniaDate: 03/07/2014 at 12:36
OK - so I finally got it in me to have my serving of humble pie...Excellent service, great products, and did I mention excellent service? Especially in dealing with a customer frustrated by the Royal Mail surface delivery coupled with a UK Banking Holiday... Extremely professional behaviour - kudos. Will be a return customer if accepted.
SilviuFrom: RomaniaDate: 26/06/2014 at 10:27
I shopped from WD many times and each time I was very satisfied. Incredible quickly delivering in Romania, good prices, good packing. It is a pleasure for me to buy from here.
Elizabeth HeathFrom: UKDate: 25/06/2014 at 11:18
Many thanks for your excellent service. My order arrived this morning - much quicker than anticipated. Now I can use an old propelling pencil inherited from my father.
AlainFrom: FRANCEDate: 21/06/2014 at 14:09
I made my first purchase from France on "The Writing Desk" and I'm not disappointed ! I received my two fountain pens in less than a week. They were well protected by the packaging and arrived in good condition, except one of the boxes of pens that had undergone a "hitch" I think due to bad handling postal workers ! I recommend this site and I think again of other purchases. Alan.
Henry HolzerFrom: GermanyDate: 20/06/2014 at 19:54
Dear Anna and Martin, Thanks for the fast and very well packed shipment of the Conway Stewart Model 100 60th Anniversary fountain pen I ordered. The F nib is the perfect size and it writes like a jewel - it glides smoothly over all the paper I've used it on so far. I'm very pleased ! Best regards, Henry
FayreFrom: EnglandDate: 12/06/2014 at 13:57
Always my first port of call for fountain pen goodness - a simple bottle of ink, a beautiful pen or even a "could you help me please?" The Writing Desk always provide a first class service, the kind of service you can only find when there are committed, knowledgeable folk at the other end of the website/phone. Highly recommended.
D jonesFrom: EnglandDate: 11/06/2014 at 12:52
Recently ordered an Edison Collier which as usual arrived quickly and well packaged. Very helpful if there is a problem with a an order. I would recommend them to any fountain pen fan.
Dr Kim CastleFrom: Ynys MonDate: 07/06/2014 at 20:11
Great service...prompt delivery Thank you
Patrick KirbyFrom: United KingdomDate: 07/06/2014 at 13:22
A prompt, secure, excellent service. My first visit to this site, and I`ll be back.
Sunil BaliFrom: United KingdomDate: 07/06/2014 at 13:08
Excellent service, received the order the very next day and the way it was requested. Completely satisfied with the order.
Joao LouroFrom: SwitzerlandDate: 06/06/2014 at 16:30
I've always heard good things about this shop among people that are interested in Fountain Pens, so I decided to order a new Pelikan M400 nib. The item arrived extremely quickly in Switzerland! I'm extremely impressed with the quality of service and the quickness of how everything went! I have to say that this certainty won't be the last time I will order from The Writing Desk. Totally recommend this shop for any European fountain pen fan! Thanks!
Antony HurdenFrom: UKDate: 06/06/2014 at 10:35
Thank you for your excellent advice and service, and help in choosing the 2-pen DeLaForet case in grain brown. It is perfect for my Yard-O-Led pencil and Waterman Exception - both quite large instruments. The case is a delight to have and I really appreciate your help and extremely prompt delivery!
Penelope PatrickFrom: LondonDate: 05/06/2014 at 15:17
I recently bought a Visconti Homo Sapiens fountain pen, and could not have been happier with the service provided by The Writing Desk. Since then, I have asked advice on both fountain pen cases and which ink to use, and again, I cannot speak highly enough of the patient and efficient way in which all my queries and orders have been dealt with. I would happily recommend them to everyone.
loraFrom: United KingdomDate: 05/06/2014 at 13:18
After ordering several times from the writing desk I am always impressed with the service no matter how big or small the order. This time I was overjoyed to receive the 2012 limited ed capless that is now very difficult to find. I left it almost too late but now thanks to the writing desk I have a treasured new pen in the stable just waiting to be inked! Thank you again!
Adrian LawrieFrom: EnglandDate: 05/06/2014 at 11:34
Wonderful service. Arrived two days before I expected. The ink bottles were very well packed and arrived without any damage. The inks were just what I wanted. Great service. Definately will use again and again.
David KuhnFrom: EnglandDate: 03/06/2014 at 11:54
No matter how big or small the order, I've always received superb service from The Writing Desk. A friendly team who are always prepared to go that extra mile to answer questions and advise. Goods are dispatched fast and well very well packed. My latest order, for a nib, was placed Monday morning and arrived the next day. Brilliant.
ABFrom: AustraliaDate: 02/06/2014 at 18:21
This is my second purchase of ink bottles at the Writing Desk. The first time I was impressed by the 'smart' selection of items and brands, excellent communication and service, a smooth transaction, very fast delivery (I received my parcel in Australia via standard shipping in less than a week), accurate package and very competitive pricing. To summarise, it is easy and nice purchasing from the Writing Desk. I will buy again. Regards
Alan DuthieFrom: UKDate: 31/05/2014 at 16:23
Fast, friendly service and informative advice. I'll shop here again!
Dawn HarveyFrom: UKDate: 30/05/2014 at 21:27
After spending hours trawling round every pen shop in London in search of my desired Orange Faber-Castell Loom, I returned home empty handed and ordered from this website. The pen arrived just over 24 hours later. I should have done that in the first place. Excellent service!
Ivan KarpowitschFrom: UKDate: 30/05/2014 at 19:19
Thank you again for your excellent service overall, as on the previous 2 occasions. My Lamy Studio 65 fountain pen arrived quickly & well packaged. Also of note, the extra fine nib on this pen is, in keeping with the standard of my other 2 Lamy pens, of exceptional quality. The writing action is perfectly free-flowing & as smooth as I could wish for, ie. no scratching whatsoever. Will certainly order again (including probably another Lamy Studio extra fine as a gift for someone else). - Well done "The Writing Desk"!
Jennifer BurkeFrom: UKDate: 29/05/2014 at 18:45
I had purchased a new fountain pen at a craft fair so needed some bottles of ink. The Writing Desk had great selection and at good prices. SO I bought 2 bottles of ink and they arrived really quickly and well packaged. Thank you
clive dunneFrom: New ZealandDate: 22/05/2014 at 06:46
Brillant! Thank you
Adrian HarperFrom: Switzerland & Isle of manDate: 20/05/2014 at 19:53
I've ordered three or four times now from The Writing Desk for deliveries to two different countries - each time the service has been prompt and hassle free. The packing and delivery speed have been excellent.
Ray McHughFrom: UKDate: 20/05/2014 at 16:01
I ordered, after much soul searching, a no longer produced 3B nib for my Pelikan M1000 while I am still in a workplace... It arrived very quickly, safely and writes wet as I had requested... Would recommend this dealership and use again if I ever need another pen and Nib
John TaylorFrom: EnglandDate: 20/05/2014 at 11:03
Have just received my Pelikan M 200 Cognac with Italic nib which came promptly and efficiently as have other orders from my wife and myself. We increasingly seem to be turning to The Writing Desk for our pen/paper/ink needs as they have a very wide range of products as well as cover some of the more eclectic manufactures like Edison (I have my eye on the Collier Persimmon Twirl). Certainly to my mind would be up among the top three pen retailers in the country.
AnnFrom: Great BritainDate: 16/05/2014 at 15:44
The best place to buy inks from. Had used Amazon before but took to long and am still waiting for two bottles from them. The writing desk sent them the same day I ordered and they arrived the next day. Will be using this company again and again. Thank you Writing desk.
LesleyFrom: WalesDate: 16/05/2014 at 09:43
Fantastic, sounds a bit sad, but sooo excited to get my new inks, next thing on my list A Caran D'ache pen, but I think that may take some time! Super fast delivery, will be ordering again. Thank you.
T. AllenFrom: UKDate: 14/05/2014 at 09:37
Excellent service once again. I ordered on Saturday evening and received my goods on Tuesday morning. I'd recommend The Writing Desk own label inks to anyone ; I've now got four, all of which are good colours, good value and the plastic bottles are an insurance against accidental dropping.
Graham AshleyFrom: GermanyDate: 13/05/2014 at 15:28
Many thanks for sending promptly the YOL Perfecta Pencil (Victorian). I am extremely pleased with it.
John FranklinFrom: FranceDate: 13/05/2014 at 11:43
Thanks so much, the fine nib for my Pelican arrived without a hitch, now installed and writing smoothly. Great service and attention to detail. Kind regards, John.
Victor SmithFrom: UKDate: 09/05/2014 at 15:56
I have received my order and congratulate you on your efficient handling and attention Unfortunately I was expecting a royal looking purple colour as shown on the box. but the writing really does not look any different to Black. sorry.
