Another purchase from theWritingDesk, this time the Lamy 2000. I have an extra fine nib on it adjusted by Martin - very smooth writer - writes more like fine from Pilot (or maybe a tiny bit broader). Sometimes I have an impression of a little stub-like line variation. What a great pen!

I'm glad a friend told me about The Writing Desk website.This is the best website to buy inks, papers and other supplies for fountain pen lovers, IMHO. They are fast, professional and careful. Prices are fair and shipping costs are reasonable. I intend to keep TWD website as my first choice to buy that supplies.

Mark BensonFrom: Northern IrelandDate: 22/07/2017 at 16:21
I'd just like to say a massive thank you for your help in choosing a fountain pen and the extra effort you made to provide comparison pictures of actual stock pens. I found the entire process of choosing a pen from you a sheer pleasure, with the only painful part being having to leave very desirable pens on your stock shelf! Maybe for the future... I received the pen, a gorgeous Edison Collier in Persimmon Swirl finish, very promptly via Special Delivery. The pen itself is exceptionally well crafted from beuautiful materials, and I am grateful to you for bringing these wonderful pens into the UK from the US, and at such a competitive price. Thank you!

SandraFrom: UKDate: 26/06/2017 at 18:30
This was not my first order, and as before I'm so impressed with the speed of delivery, literally received less than 24 hours after placing my order. The packing was appropriate, and all was present and correct. To say I'm delighted is not an overstatement, and although I've not used my new inks yet, I look forward to doing so very soon. Thank you so much, I've recommended your company to my friends and family, and will order again.
Jennifer LeeFrom: United KingdomDate: 24/06/2017 at 12:41

I recently got me a Visconti Merry-Go-Round and the nicest thing about getting it from The Writing Desk, aside from them offering the lowest price, is that I got to choose the one I like best among the stocks they have at the time of purchase. Online shopping at its finest. I'd definitely be a returning customer. :-)

Over several years I've researched and purchased various pens from The Writing Desk. Recommendations have always been excellent based on my preferences and their knowledge of what is available so that this is a really personal service. A pen is something very special to the writer and the interest taken by The Writing desk in selecting the right pen ensures that the best choice is made. I could not be more pleased.

I must express my pleasure and satisfaction with the speed with which you replaced the nib on my new Sailor pen and returned it special delivery at no charge. Many thanks for this and the fine service which I have also received in the repair of my Visconti nib (after I had dropped it).
Mark NolanFrom: United Kingdom Date: 06/05/2017 at 11:09
Once again the service from the writing desk was impeccable. I'd previously bought a Pelikan 250 and absolutely loved it, so much so I'd set my heart on a Pelikan M1000 Souveran. Not a cheap pen so I did a bit of research online and was a bit concerned that some reviewers felt the nib on the M1000 could be a bit soft, a bit broad and a bit wet. This didn't seem right, the quality of Pelikan didn't marry up with these negative comments, so I decided to call the writing desk and spoke to Martin. He confirmed the nib could write broader and you need to go a step finer, but said online reviews are looking for any slight negative and in his experience the M1000 was a fine pen. Reassured, I placed my order and waited on delivery. When it arrived I started writing eagerly, inked it up and set off was a bit soft a bit wet and bit broad. However I soon realised it was a product of my heavy hand. The nib is v long and soft and flexible, so I had to lighten my touch. You don't need to work to get a line , it flows wonderfully, but if you're heavy handed on cheaper paper the amount of ink laid down will cause feathering and bleeding. Having said that, I spent a lot of time writing with the M1000 on the day I got it and the more I got used to it the more I liked it. My touch improved, the flow and line improved and the Pelikan Edelstein ink really started to show its quality. I feel like I had to raise my game to that of the pen, being used to pens with stiffer nibs where you had to use a touch of pressure , the M1000 is a much more refined and ultimately satisfying experience. The service from Martin was first class, the Writing Desk is THE place to buy with confidence, I would highly recommend them to anyone starting out with fountain pens, or who are looking to spend more money on something special. I wouldn't buy anywhere else.
Torill AFrom: NorwayDate: 04/05/2017 at 21:43
Excellent service, polite and very quick delivery to Norway. Offered to find out if my pen would fit the standard inks. Thanks!
