|I ordered a Namiki Maki-E Nippon Art fountain pen with medium nib and several ink bottles. To my delight, everything arrived overseas in perfect condition and in a most timely manner, as well as wonderfully packaged as a birthday present (a special touch from The Writing Desk, as I had mentioned it was a gift to myself). Splendid service and will definitely be ordering from The Writing Desk again.|

|I have ordered an Edison Collier Antique Marble fountain pen, a Pelikan M400 Fountain Pen brown/tortoise and an Edison Steel nib (No.6) and they arrived in perfect condition as described, perfectly secure without any problem. Martin performed check for the nibs to ensure the immediate use of the pen. The parcel arrived in 8 days after the payement. Bottom line: Thank you for an easy, pleasant transaction. A pleasure to do business with.|

|I've placed two different orders and have been extremely happy. Living in the US I was a little worried about ordering from overseas, but The Writing Desk has been wonderful all the way. I appreciated their updating me when something had shipped and the pens were exquisite. Would recommend them without any reservation.|

|If you use a fountain pen and you want a specialist service, as I did, then The Writing Desk is probably the only place in England that can help you. I had been searching for several years to find a firm able to access a craftsman able to modify a gold nib for my Pilot Capless pen to an italic. I was on the point of trying a company in USA, when I discovered The Writing Desk. Both Anna and Martin were extremely courteous, helpful and patient, particularly when I held up proceedings with a holiday. I now have the nib, ground down to match my regular script. The service I received was excellent. Thank you. |

|I've been buying my supplies from Anna and Martin since my Uni days dating back to 2002-ish. I left England post-2008 after my Masters and since then pretty much order all my inks exclusively from them.

|My Pelikans all (3) write a wet line so no good on cheaper stock. Mentioned to Martin when buying an EF for my M205 and added Pelikan 4001 ink on his recommendation. The tuned nib is gorgeous. No other word for it. I'm not big on flexy but there's the tiniest give in the nib which complements my tendency to add a flourish here and there. Love it.
