Pens for sale: Montegrappa, Visconti, ASC, Montblanc, Cross, Staedtler

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.

  1. While those are all lovely pens, I confess I am glad that none are on my wish list. Staying at home for the pandemic has left me far too much time to look at pens and to justify purchasing some as a way to mitigate the effects of isolation. The worst part is, with my husband teaching from home, he sees most of the packages coming in. 🙂
