Thank you for the prompt delivery of my order! As usual the packaging was excellent and very safe. It's always a pleasure working with you, and I appreciate the personal touch. One suggestion: in your "order dispatched" email you could include a link to Royal Mail Track & Trace along with "your tracking # is", or if you're particularly cunning you could link directly to the link of the parcel in question. I admit I don't know how to make that complex a macro though! The Vac-700 B is lovely, as expected. The tines were a little out of allignment which I fixed. Also, the nib has a bit of "baby-bottom": the contact area between the tines is a tiny bit recessed so it occasionally has a hard start (yes I unscrew the shut-off valve). I'll keep it for a week or so and see if some paper smooths it out; because it's broad the hard-starts aren't as frequent as I've encountered in F nibs. If it doesn't improve I'll drop you an e-mail.

I love fountain pens, and The Writing Desk has a great selection with some of the best prices on the web - low international shipping prices, too. I'll be shopping with The Writing Desk again!

I was introduced to The Writing desk by my son. His recommendation was sound. Ordered on a weekend; delivered on the Tuesday. Excellent quality goods at a reasonable price and swift delivery. If the occasion arises I will definitely order from The Writing Desk again. Thank you.

Thanks for the excellent and speedy service - ordered a part for a Waterman pen yesterday, and it arrived this morning, exactly what I needed. Wonderful! (and what a fascinating online shop just to browse about in - full of temptations) John Ward, Perth

I ordered a TWSBI Vac700, some Ink and a journal yesterday around mid-day. They were delivered this morning after a faultless order handling and commuication process. The Vac700 is a large pen, (particularly when posted), but the overall feel and very smooth quite "wet" nib make for a lovely writing experience that is exceptionally good for the price point. For an everyday meeting notetaker, it will be a lovely pen. Thank you for the very prompt service - I am a first time customer, (via recommendation), but I will be sure to return!

I have always received the rarest combination of excellent, efficient and friendly service from the Writing Desk and at best value price for the service/product combination. The kind of service that means Martin and Anna are my first (and usually, last) stop for pens and ink. I wish them every success for continuing in similar vein.
Clare MachFrom: United KingdomDate: 03/03/2013 at 12:32
Thank you for sending me a replacement lid for my TWSBI fountain pen so promptly and at no charge. It is my favourite pen to use at them moment as it is so well balanced in my hand despite being a big pen for me so I am pleased to have it back in use. I would get another if it was more robust. Any chance that the problems with the body cracking being solved?
Jules DawsonFrom: EnglandDate: 27/02/2013 at 22:31
You guys are fantastic. A package with a nice shiny pen in it was what I needed after a hard days work. It's going to get a lot of use.

Just received 2 bottles of Pelikan Edelstein ink; one Topaz and one Turmaline. Both great colours. However, the best aspect was the service given by yourselves. Ordered on Monday evening arrived 2 days later - excellent. Good servcie as always.

It only took slightly more than a week to reach me at far east, I am very happy with the YOL Pocket Victorian I purchased from you. Very good service, thanks.
SallyFrom: UKDate: 15/02/2013 at 18:34

Delivery timing as promised when ordering. Very happy with the product (Pelikan M200 demonstrator). Highly recommend 'The Writing Desk'. Thank you.
KenFrom: EnglandDate: 07/02/2013 at 08:00

Excellent Service from an excellent company. I am so pleased that I have found 'The Writing Desk', I only wish I had found you sooner.
John PasquillFrom: EnglandDate: 05/02/2013 at 11:30
Good website plus good personal service.

I have just received my Edison Collier EF Antique Marble and a selection of inks. The Pen: Superb quality and rich tones, grips well but certainly not for those who prefer slim pens. The nib is outstanding, just enough 'bite' on the paper to feel the texture whilst allowing the pen to glide. Ink flow is excellent. One of the best fine nibs I have used. Inks: Diamine Grape works a treat in this pen, bought a bottle of Writing desk black - not as smooth but works okay in my work a day Parker. Service: Pen was delivered quickly and well packed. Communication from The Writing desk was very good and they responded quickly to emails. Prices are competitive and service is excellent - consider me a customer for the future as well as the present. Many thanks for an effortless experience.

I had been unable to locate two different J.Herbin ink cartridge colors. Then I was able to find them both on this website.Also, other colors.Once I place an order it doesn't take long to arrive to me in the USA which I really appreciate.

I have come upon The Writing Desk through the Fountain Pen Network forum after my interest for pens, quality inks and paper flared up again recently. I ordered all the pens that were on my wish list since quit some time as well as some rare inks less easy to obtain in the Belgium/Limburg/Netherlands part of Europe. And certainly not for that price. The delivery to mainland Europe is a bit longish but consistent to Anna's promises. The parcels are very well packed and the products are properly protected within the box. The Writings Desk's availability of specific products, their commitment and quality service have convinced me. I am a happy customer. Regards, Zoran Grbic Z-O-K-I, Redactionele fotografie,

My purchase from The Writing Desk was a great pleasure. I received excellent communication, almost instant replies to my questions and next day delivery. My purchase was very well packaged and I can't fault the service at all. I will definitely be a return customer. Many thanks! Dean
