Holiday Shipping Schedule
You can avoid the holiday crowds by ordering from us - and with guaranteed delivery, you can rest assured that your gift will arrive in time by specifying UPS 3rd Day, 2nd Day, or Next Day when placing your order.
In order to arrive by December 24th, our invoice must be approved by you via phone or e-mail no later than Thursday, December 18th for UPS 3rd Day; Friday, December 19th for UPS 2nd Day; or Monday, December 22nd for UPS Next Day.
You can also receive free shipping via USPS Priority Mail for any order over $200 - orders approved by December 19th should arrive by December 24th, but unlike the UPS schedule above, this is an estimate only and cannot be guaranteed.
New and Newly Arrived Pens
Now in stock and in a bright red color ideal for the season, the new Pilot Falcon Resin Red Barrel features the same semi-flexible nib as the original versions in Black and will be available with your choice of 14k solid gold rhodium-plated soft nib in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, or Broad. Retail price for the pen is $180, with our price $144.
Just arrived, the Pilot Custom 912, seen above, is being made available in North America for the first time. Offering the most diverse nib line-up of any Pilot fountain pen, the Custom 912 is available with your choice of 14k solid gold rhodium-plated nib in Extra Fine, Soft Fine, Music, Stub, or FA. The 912 also utilizes Pilot's high capacity CON-70 converter, giving it an ink capacity equal to that of many piston-fillers.
The biggest attraction for many pen aficianados, however, will be the notched FA nib, seen at right and below. The most flexible solid gold nib we know of on any modern pen today, it provides a superb starting point for John's Spencerian customization. In any nib size, the Custom 912 retails for $280, with our price $224. The optional Spencerian customization is available for an additional $110.
The image at left illustrates the extreme flexibility of the FA nib even in its stock, unmodified state. It is the most flexible contemporary high quality gold nib we've seen, and can be made even more so with John's customization for added flex.
The release of Pelikan's new M101N Tortoiseshell Red Special Edition has been a major event among pen aficionados, and we now have this special edition writing instrument in stock and available for immediate shipment in all nib sizes: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, and Broad. Pens in Broad and Fine are in particularly short supply, and exclusively, we also have just a handful in Extra Broad as well - be sure to contact us soon if you would like one of these scarce tipping sizes. Retail $650, our price $520
Just arrived from Pilot, the new Vanishing Point Copper Limited Edition is being made available in just 2014 numbered pieces worldwide. Limited edition Vanishing Points always sell out quickly, but we have managed to secure a small number of these pens for our customers. Normally made available only in Medium, we can provide this pen with your choice of solid gold 18k rhodium-plated nib unit in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, or Broad. Our price $240.
One of the most memorable of Omas's recent series of limited edition reissues, the Vintage Paragon Brown Arco in Rose Gold was produced in just 75 numbered pieces worldwide. We have a small number of these pens still available with the full range of Omas nibs - 18k rose gold-plated nibs in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Extra Broad, and Stub, or 14k semi-flexible rose gold-plated nibs in Extra Fine Extra Flessible, Fine Extra Flessible, and Medium Extra Flessible. Retail price for each pen is $995, with our price $796.
For many years, customers have been asking if Sailor's popular Realo series of piston-fillers could be made available in rhodium trim. With the release of the new 1911 Realo Black Silver, arriving in spring of 2015, that wish is being fulfilled. Provided standard with the full range of Sailor 21k sold gold rhodium-plated nibs, and also available with a limited number of rhodium-plated Sailor Specialty Nibs, this pen can now be pre-ordered - you will not be charged until your pen arrives here and then ships on to you. Retail $410, our price $328
Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before shipping. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
