Ditto to PenGallery and Melpens. Both are excellent dealers with good prices.

If im not mistaken, Weld is located in KL city somewhere around Jalan Raja Chulan. But I hv never been there before.
Melpens is an online pen company. They sell various branded pens online.

PenGallery is situated in The Weld (Menara Weld), located in the so-called "Golden Triangle" of Kuala Lumpur, here smile.gif

MelPens is an online store, and does not have a B&M presence. They're located in Petaling Jaya.

Another pen store I would highly recommend is KS Gill, located at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman directly across Tune Hotel, Maju Junction and the Medan Tuanku monorail station. They have one distinct advantage compared to the others mentioned - the presence of an in-store nibmeister who will not only adjust your new pen purchased from them to your exact specifications, but also perform repairs and adjustments on your existing ones thumbup.gif . They're also the oldest pen retailer in Malaysia, being around since WW2, but the last to have an online presence - very old school rolleyes.gif

*** NO AFFILIATION WHATSOEVER TO THE ABOVE-MENTIONED MALAYSIAN STORES, just a very satisfied customer ***

MelPens is an internet only seller. Even though he's based in PJ he doesn't have a store. He has better prices than PenGallery.

PenGallery has a very nice shop in the Weld and the staff are really nice. You'll be lucky if you can get a better price than the internet price though (or at least luckier than me!). Make sure you check their internet price before you get in the store - as usual for a Malaysian store the listed prices are all MSRP and then they'll offer you their "standard" discount which will still have the price higher than the internet price.

You can get pens (Pelikan etc) in Isetan and other big department stores but don't expect a bargain.

If you want a MB then check out Hing's Watch in BSC or the new shopping mall that has replaced Jaya supermarket in PJ Section 14 (Jaya 33 or something). I have got good deals on a MB pen there.
