New year, new pens for sale. All of these pens are lightly used, have been kept cased, and come boxed unless otherwise stated. All are wonderful pens; the simple reason for sale is that I am pruning still further, down to my top 20 pens.
Prices are net to me, excluding postage. UK shipping is £8 for any size order. To minimise admin, minimum order size is £50. I will happily ship internationally by tracked and insured courier at your cost — please get an estimate online before you approach me so you’re comfortable with how much that’s likely to be. Shipping a £500 pen to the US is likely to cost £50+.
No trades or part-exchanges please unless you have arco verde, Nagasawa Realo Chaska, Nakaya Dorsal 2, King of Pen Urushi :).
As always, to buy please contact me.
Writing samples first. Excuse the ink bleeding, it’s not the pen’s fault.
