Montgomery pens

I am still confused. Is Montgomery Pens (montgomerypens.com) and Montgomery Stationery (on eBay) the same place? I have purchased from the online store. The pen was well priced, shipped quickly, and was exactly as represented.

 

No dealing with the eBay seller.

Yes.

The prices are high, but they often have pens that nobody else has, and their pens are usually new old stock in excellent condition.

My first contact with them was ordering (ebay) a Parker 100 EF. The pen came as ordered, but something was rattling around in the nib. I flushed the nib, and blue ink came gushing from this 'new' pen. I called back and spoke to someone who wanted to argue. I sent the pen back. The 'replacement' pen ( which I believe to be the original pen)came back in a much cheaper Parker box. This 'replacement' pen does the same thing. That's not the incident I was speaking about several posts above. I ordered, during the interim, a Parker Centennial Duofold, which never got to me, and the pen shop there in NY not only refused to replace the pen or credit my card, but expected me to do all the tracking. Uh-uh. So, it was settled in my favour.

 

Never again.

I ordered two pens from them from their online store. I expected the pens to be New in Box but was astonished to notethat the more expensive pen was used.

Has anyone ordered from Montgomery pens before? Any good/bad comments on them.

 

I just wanted to know because thier prices are very low, but I like to check around before I order anything. ;)

 

 

I bought a pen from this guy two years ago and it was the worst eBay experience I've had to date. First he sent me the wrong pen, then he refused to take it back for an exchange, so I had to do a Paypal chargeback, which was very time consuming because he denied everything. He was also very rude in every communication I had with him. I would not recommend doing business with this person.

I bought a Namiki Bamboo from them but I went to the store in NY to pick it up(very close to my Apt. actually). I got to look the pen over in person and bought it on the spot. I planned to buy other pens from them because of the low price--sorry to hear others had such bad experiences. Kind of turns me off from buying from them.

I have bought from them a few times and never had a problem.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of nothing at all...

I ordered a pen from them. The pen in the picture on ebay was not the pen they sent. The pen I got was exaactly as described though. I thought it was a little high but they were the only ones selling this specific pen that I was looking to find. (A vintage, German-made Papermate, made by the same company that made Montblancs at that time.)

My first transaction w/them (montgomerypens.com) has been less than stellar. They charged my CC before the product shipped. I placed 3 telephone calls in 1 week and each time I was told I would get a reply about the status of my order...nothing.

Yes, I recently ordered a Pilot Knight in burgundy. I have been looking everywhere for one, they seem to be somewhat hard to find. I looked on their website and it said they had them and they were in stock. So I ordered. A week later, no pen, no communication that it ha shipped. But my account had been charged for the pen. I called, the phone salesperson was rude (as most NY phone salespeople are...) and he told me right away that they were backordered. So I cancelled and asked him to please refund my money. He said Oh, we havent charged you yet. I said Oh yes you have, I'm looking at my account. The tone of his voice through all this was that he was annoyed or something that he had to deal with me.

No more orders from them. They're off my list of preferred vendors.

Do you like Thrillers? Read The El Morro Connection. You can find it on Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.com in the ebook section. Soon it'll be available in hardcopy. It's written by C. Clayton Lewis. And that would be me. Let me warn you, don't start reading it the night before you have to get up early...

I bought my Waterman Phileas F from them a while back. No complaints. They also list some unusual, no-same student Watermans.

My other pen is a Montblanc and...

 

My other blog is a tumblr.

Wow. I wish I had read this a week ago.

 

I ordered 2 Phileas fin nibs that are set to be deliverd today. They are supposed to be new. I will post again when they get here regarding thier condition.

 

I ordered from them because I wanted new Phileases with F nibs which are no longer made. The chance to get a new one was too tempting...

My same experience exactly. Talked with "Abe" and he told me that it was merely a "hold" on my CC not a purchase. I told him that was wrong and I would give it till the end of the week then I'll do a charge-back. I expect companies to not charge my card till the product is shipped. Their communication w/customers is very poor.

I've ordered a Fisher Space Pen and a few Parkers from them. The first Parker I ordered was through Ebay and I payed with PayPal. Because the ordering was automated, the transaction went smoothly. However, when I tried contacting them with some basic questions for the next purchase, they were very hard to reach. When I did reach them, they were not very friendly. A second time I called on a Friday, I think, at noon, and the guy rudely said "We're closing now!" Boy! With worst economy I've seen in my lifetime, you'd think they'd want to work on their customer service skills. Anyway, the last item I ordered directly from their website and paid using CC, and I haven't received the item yet. The order was placed on Friday 12th. Today is the 22nd and still no pen. When I called last week to inquire about the shipping, they said they shipped it on Tueday 16th. Why did they have to wait so long before shipping. Anyway, Fountain Pen Hospital was much, much nicer. Then I also called Classic Fountain Pens, Inc. and they had superior customer service. I definitely plan to buy all of my future pens from Classic Foutain Pens. If there is a pen they don't carry, then I'll turn to FPH, but not Montgomery Pens anymore.

I have bought three pens from them, and my only complaint is that I lost the "ocean blue" Sonnet with gold nib. It worked beautifully until someone swiped my three-pen carrier with Sonnet and P51 aero.

 

The Ocean Blue Sonnet was about $109, and arrived a few days after I ordered it. Last weekend I "won" their auction for another Ocean Blue Sonnet with gold nib. It arrived Friday.

 

Oh, and if you think "New York pen stores", think Art Brown as well as Fountain Pen Hospital. Both are great places!

The one pen that I purchased from them was just as advertised, though their shipping rates seem awfully high to me.

I do agree with J. Haney their shipping charges are outrageous most times and only if you get a great deal, its hardly worth dealing with them. They are very rude also. Manny D.

      @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.
