    Tuned Sailor Pens

    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 !
  2. Are there any pen stores near Buffalo NY? I am really hoping to try a few pens but the only place I could find was an art supply store that carried overpriced Safari's and the uncomfortable Retro 51 fountain pens. They also had some pens in the $1000+ range but I really don't have that kind of cash to burn. I'm willing to travel across the border into Canada if that helps. Maybe anything around two hours out one way?
  3. Hey all, I'm wondering if there are any fountain pen stores in the Charleston or Columbia, SC area? I was able to find a thread, but that was from 2008, so pretty dated. And I tried Google, but no luck! Any information you can provide will be really helpful! Regards, Rosendust
  4. Hello all! Having recently 'gotten into' Fountain pens, I was naturally interested in any brick and mortar retailers in my own city for the beloved stationary. I found this wonderful guide here on the forum (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/12113-fountain-pens-in-sydney-australia/), but as it was written in 2006, I though I would give it a bit of an update, after about 6 months experience. In a semiparticular order Dymocks - The Sydney CBD store (Dymocks Sydney) has a specific fountain pen section, with a very wide variety of pens, inks and parts. They have too many to list, but I would suggest that if you are looking for anything this would probably be your best stop. They also sell Clairefontaine and Rhodia books, and at a very decent price - about RRP, which is a nice change. (424-430 George Street, Sydney 2000, https://www.dymocks.com.au/ - the website is ... not amazing for stationary) Pen Ultimate, also known as Pen De Luxe - I have only visited the QVB shop, and when you are looking for it, the sign out front says Montblac, not Pen De Luxe, so keep that in mind. Again, a very wide variety of pen paraphernalia (penaphernalia!), and other stationary items. They do also do repairs, as I understand. (QVB, Level 2, Queen Victoria Building, Sydney, 2000, http://www.pensdeluxe.ashop.com.au/ - They also have an online shop) Officeworks - They sell a variety of good paper brands, including Rhodia, Quink (at about $10!), and a limited selection of pens, including the Lamy Safari, Vpens, and some calligraphy sets. Watch out for mark-ups though - the Lamy I saw was $50. Again, the bigger stores will have the most. (http://www.officeworks.com.au/) David Jones/Myer - Two major general retailers, they do have some fountain pen materials, including Waterman ink. You will need to go to one of the larger stores, I would recommend either in the CBD or at Bondi Juction, and ask after them in the stationary departments. (www.davidjones.com.au/http://www.myer.com.au/)Newsagents - Varied, you'll just have to have a look. Also varied is the pricing...Kinokuniya - In the GV, they do have a collection of stationary, including fountain pens. Mainly focused on Japanese calligraphy, but can still be helpful. (The Galeries, George St, Sydney 2000, http://www.kinokuniya.com.au/) Smiggle - You'll feel silly going in, but they have a couple of pens which could be of interest to a beginner. (http://www.smiggle.com.au/) I hope this helps!

    Sunday In New York

    I'm going into the city to meet friends on the UWS for a bite to eat on Sunday. Are there any pen shops you'd recommend I see while I'm there? The legendary Fountain Pen Hospital is closed on Sundays, unfortunately, Any suggestions? Is Lee's on W57 worth a visit? Thanks!
  6. Hey Looking for advice on places to see pens in these cities. I will be traveling to these amazing cities very soon and want to see whether any one has tips and advice specifically on local pen stores. Looking for old stock or vintage pens. Ed: If this is not the right place for this post, please let me know where I should post this.
  7. Bonjour, I went Boxing Day shopping in downtown Montréal and on my way back home, I stopped by the big Essence du Papier store at Place Ville-Marie. There was a little sign on the door that read something like this: Thanks to all our loyal customers, but the store is closed for good as of December 24th. They had another shop on St-Denis street. I checked their web site and it seems they are closed as well. With these shops gone, the only worthwhile paper shop in Montreal is Nota Bene on Parc Avenue - they also cary FPs and the only place in Montréal that carries Diamine inks as far as I know. A few interesting finds are to me made at Omer Deserres art supply stores (Leuchtturm, Fabriano). What you can find in the library chains (Renaud-Bray, Indigo) is rather dismal (the usual Moleskine stuff and little else). Le Parchemin at Berri Metro station carries a good selection of Rhodia products and they also sell pens. That is pretty much it. I've been trying to support local businesses, but it is getting harder and harder. They keep disappearing! I guess Nota Bene will be getting pretty much all of my business, along with Stylo.ca downtown.
  8. I'm in Rotterdam for the week and would like to visit a pen shop on the journey. My ideal shop would be one that carried inexpensive Pelikan products, like the Pelikano, Style, and Gallery series. These are largely unavailable in the US. A visit to the Pelikan website turned up a shop, Karlier, at 120Meent, but sadly it seems to have recently gone out of business. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated!
