For sale

Since I have now hit double the capacity of my pen tray, it’s time for a ruthless clear out. Over the next few weeks I’ll be listing 19 pens for sale.

I’m selling some darned good, nearly new pens here, sometimes just a few weeks after a positive review. I’d like to emphasise that selling these pens doesn’t change my opinion of them: it’s just that very few pens can compete with the Nakayas, Namikis, Conids etc in my main collection. I barely get enough use out of those beauties to justify having another 20 pens too. Some of the pens I’m selling were given to me as review samples. I’m considering this sale as contributing to blog running costs!

Please use the contact page to make an offer. First firm commitment to buy gets it.

This time, a few introductory statements to answer a lot of the questions I usually get when I sell pens:

  • PRICING. 5% discount if you buy two pens. 10% discount if you buy three pens. 15% if you buy all six. Otherwise, fixed price only. Please don’t email me with offers.
  • OTHER PENS FOR SALE. If you want to ask about pens that I might be selling that aren’t in the photo below, feel free, but these are the only ones I’ve prepped for sale right now in terms of pricing etc.
  • TRADES. If you want to offer me a trade, I’m happy to hear it. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know what floats my boat! But no trades that involve me ending up with more pens than I started with, and no trades that involve me sending cash (the idea is for me to convert pens into money!)
  • INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. No international sales on this round, please. I know where I am with Royal Mail Special Delivery. UK delivery is included in the price.
  • PAYMENT. All prices are net to me, so payment by PayPal Friends and Family or bank transfer only, please.
  • CONDITION. Consider all pens in good used condition, with minor wear and tear. All pens are boxed unless I’m very much mistaken, please please check if that’s important to you. Nibs are as stated below.
  • SHIPPING TIMES. With a new baby in my household, I’m afraid I can’t make daily runs to the post office. I’ll do a weekly post run on Saturday morning, and that will catch anything that gets bought before Friday night.

Phew. With that out of the way, on to the pens! Pens below left to right in the photo.

  1. Oh, I got excited — then realized that I might feel like your neighbor only due to the magic of the internet . . . alas, this neighbor lives across the pond. Ah, well. Next time. Happy selling!
