Any good recommendations of pen shops that ship internationally and are sailor pen dealers, which also have an option to modify the nib/feed to your personal preference ? share your experience !

Nibsmith.com sells Sailor fountain pens, will ship internationally, and Dan Smith does excellent nib work in my experience, although I've only bought Pelikan and Aurora pens from him (precisely because his nib work was included in the price) but not Sailor pens.
 
You'll have to confirm with Dan whether Nibsmith.com is an authorised Sailor pen dealer. I see some pens that are "Only for authorized Sailor North American Retailers" listed there, but that's not really conclusive proof.


As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

I recommend nibs.com. Excellent nib tuning in my opinion.

If you are okay ordering from overseas, I've found that the Writing Desk are able to get it where you want. I get my Sailors from them. 

 

thewritingdesk.co.uk 

 

They are a B&M and official Sailor retailer. Send them an email if you like.

Try Pendleton Brown in the US.  He's the one who worked on four problematic Bock 060 feeds on my Kaweco 14c nibs. Excellent communicator with a great sense of humour.

I guess you should post a link to this thread in the Japanese subforum.

I'm also looking for a shop in Japan that specializes in Sailor Pens , like Tokyo Pen Shop Quill does with Pilot .
