Is This Even Possible !?

We'll be getting a nice long wait, then a refund from Amazon. The seller will get the funds cleared by Amazon on the grounds that the items are having a nice long international delivery. ;)

Yep, them's the ship controls - labeled in black on a black background, a little black light lights up in black to let you know you’ve done it

 

Is that above or below the big red button that says "Don't Panic" in large friendly letters? Oh, wait -- that's the Guide. My bad.... ;)

So, when people get their pens, let all the rest of us know if they're real or fakes.

I'm thinking a Chinese knock off?

 

Even that wouldn't be worth mailing from the US or China would it? I wonder if the tracking is authentic. :huh:

I've just spoken with Amazon UK on the phone. A report is being sent to their seller support department so that the seller I found can be investigated. :mellow:

The seller has left Amazon who are now giving refunds on payments without even waiting to see if the pens arrive or not.

I believe it would be more accurate to say that Amazon have closed down the seller's account and are refunding those payments that have been taken with dispatch notices, since they know that no £200 - £300 pens will arrive.

The seller is in the USA! But they will not ship to Australia.

Bah-humbug.

Glenn.

 

Not Canada, either!

Boo-hoo!

Well if by some miracle it is true, I've just bought an Arco celluloid Omas fountain pen for £9.99. worth the risk I hope

How about a nice Pilot CH 92 for £9.99? Or a Parker Duofold Centennial? Apparently delivered from the US to the UK. Other pens are available and all cost the same price. :)

 

Plenty of products available: 341 pages.....

 

This seller is still there today, but might not be for too much longer......

At least you will get your £10 back, so no risk I hope. -_-

      @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

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      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.
