I am sorry but I have to tell you I don't remember. The added complexity was that it was done in a city that I was not as familiar with, and so the currency conversion was a bit of a blur.
Because Axel himself was helping me, I don't think he charged me the testing fee. So I only paid for the pens and the price of the custom nibs, which in itself was already super high for me.
But it was totally worth it at the end because the results are nibs that are unique and fit me to a T. Axel told me from this point on, I just have to directly communicate with him and he will be able to make any nib I want that's in his catalog of custom nibs.
A question: when ordering more than one nib, does the price double, or is part of the cost the testing? The cost is high, but if it was significantly less for additional nibs, it may be more tempting. Like getting a last made for handmade shoes...
