The Goulet Pen Company – A Very Positive Experience


Mont Blanc Collector

Recommended Posts

Always good to see good independent businesses but I don't use them as their international rates are sky high and we have great companies in the UK. I think all that self praise about this guy being "a natural born leader" was a bit of a turn off. Maybe cultural difference as I am Brit and believe that if you are good you don't need to shout about it. I did have a bit of a "get you" moment. I look forward to seeing Brian launch an expedition into the wilds of Borneo! I would not mind a few of their nibs for a Jinhao adaption but $15 to send a nib...really? Just bought a straight razor from the US and the guy charged me $5 registered.

 

Anyway all said tongue in cheek. I wish all small enterprises well in the face of Amazon which I avoid at nearly all costs now.

Clearly, there are other ways to assert one's superiority.

I place an order a couple day before Christmas.. Goulet pens got it packaged,shipped,and delivered on Christmas eve.. So I have no complaints and it was packaged very well with a hand writing note and best of all a lollipop ..

Well they have a nice selection but I have no idea why "Natural Born Leader" charges $15 flat rate for post even for something as small and light as a nib. I just got a quote to send a pen from UK to US standard airmail for £3.15. If item is relatively low value mega insurance post is not necessary.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
