Experience With Missing-Pen.de


gmrza

Recommended Posts

I have been having some troubles finding a decent M600 EF nib and finally ordered a red/black through Rolf; specifying that I was looking for a true EF. He had to order some extra nibs from Pelikan, and though they were back ordered for awhile, he finally sent out the pen. It arrived with an absolutely flawless EF nib, probably the best I have seen on a Pelikan M600.

 

I also eBayed a vintage bottle of MB blue-black from him (old style IG formula), and am super happy with that!

I was looking for a used Lamy 2000 F and Rolf was able to help me out. I emailed him first seeing his eBay account and this thread, and while he did not intially have a used pen in stock, he emailed me a couple of days later when some came into his possession.

 

Rolf provided very prompt and friendly email correspondence and a killer price - which included shipping for Germany to the US. Shipping took about a week and a half. This is definitely slower than if you purchase domestically, but the great service (+gummy bears and mints), price, and the actual pen, which was much nicer than I was expecting on my budget, were well worth the extra half week. I plan to make all future purchases of German pens through Rolf!

Great seller. I was able to get a very nice Level 5 from Rolf. Exactly as pictured and described and priced fairly. Shipped immediately and the packaging was over the top.

 

Thanks Rolf.

I have recently bought a F nib for my Pelikan M600 via the Missing-pen.de E-bay store for a very favourable price. The nib was sent the very same day I placed & paid the order, literally within hours. I received the package in less than 3 workdays! The nib was very well packed and the package would surely withstand even very rough handling :thumbup: Some nice promotional goodies were enclosed as well. The nib is perfect. I will definitely buy again from this store. Thank you Mr. Thiel.

Rolf is a great person to deal with. He seems to have everything that I am looking for. Very sunny disposition. Always ready to answer your questions. He ships very fast. I have been dealing with him for years and will continue to do so. Cheers to Rolf!

Just wanted to share my positive experience purchasing a Pelikan M800 from Rolf Theil. I bought the beautiful Burnt Orange from Rolf and he was very helpful throughout the sale. He was about to head for vacation but still took time to send me sample scans of the nib width lines so I could choose what I wanted! He got the pen shipped before leaving for his holidays. The communication was prompt and helpful, the shipping was fast from Germany to the US and I got a tracking number same day.

It is a beautiful Pen and I have since had the broad nib tuned by Mike Masuyama! After the sale, Rolf checked in to see if there were any issues. All in all, a very positive experience and I will highly recommend him.
Thanks for a great sale Rolf! Ray

ordered two pelikan m7005 f nib to put on my m600 this year, good so far, the price is also reasonable. I'll recommend buy some good stuff in his store.

There are a lot of sellers out there that ship internationally. Most are so, so, at best. But there is a handful in Europe and Asia who have figured out that price, communication, packaging and understanding the int'l mails, are all important to keeping return business.

Rolf is one of those very special int'l sellers that has the system down just right. Always a pleasant experience.

Sadly, I have had no chance to have an experience with him either. His prices are extremely high and there are much cheaper alternatives out there.

I've never purchased a waterman or parts from Rold so I don't know what he charges for those. Every German made pen I've purchased from him has been competitively priced, if not the cheapest I could find. or maybe things have changed since I last bought.

Must admit I've aways found his prices a bit high too, but in the face of all the praise he gets concluded either it was me getting in touch with the Scottish ancestry or the deals were better if you were outside the EU.

I recently bought a Lamy 2000 from Rolf and have nothing but good things to say. Shipping was fast and he responds to emails quickly. His Lamy 2000 prices are really good IMO.

No experience because the Waterman prices are sky high, approaching those of NY Monty. £115 for a section alone ???

 

And he makes EU buyers pay 19% more for VAT if they buy from his .com listings.

I bought a Rotring Pen Display from Rolf and had a good experience. He communicated very quick and provided additional information for me on Rotring products. His shipping was quick and the item I bought in good shape. I would buy from him again.

He's said to be a good seller, but it's a shame he has chosen that username: missing-pen. It's like calling your mail service 'Lost Parcels' or something. Doesn't inspire confidence.

I bought Lamy2000 from Rolf . He is a very good seller. I'm very glad that I discovered this store for myself :D

After many delightful transactions with Rolf, I found myself yielding to a longstanding temptation: the Pelikan orange M320. This pen exceeded my wildest expectations. It is tiny, yet writing with it is perfectly comfortable, even with my large hands. The color of the pen is gorgeous, and the nib is nicely soft. Yet another wonderful purchase of a rare pen, worth every penny.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
