Interesting. Just looked through their inks too, out of curiosity. The Montegrappa swatches are all the same swatch color-adjusted in photoshop or whatever to make it appear to be the appropriate color. Shady :ninja:

They are a little bit to anonymous for me - no location indicated - nothing. Shipping cost - not indicated.

 

I wouldn't risk my money there - yet.

 

Anybody already bought there?

I second the question :lol:

 

It seems someone is buying stuff, because the fine nib option seems to be sold out on several of the models I looked at (all only with medium or fine as an option, maybe startup-related to minimize stock on hand?).

 

I'd bet that the proportion of FPN vs non-FPN people who have bought there skews heavily toward the latter.

Hmm.. I thought their Black Friday deals were decent but they lowered the prices for this sale???

I feel so bad.

 

You bought something from them on Black Friday? How was it?

Too bad its price is lowered. :( Sorry for you...

Bought a few pens from them since they were selling on Ebay and never had any trouble dealing with them.

But it's quite annoying to see the price drop in just two weeks :(

Looks like a very well organized and professionally made site. Prices are indeed very attractive. However postage is crazy high: $23.00 for a $9.00 ink bottle? Where are they located?

On their About Us page: https://www.endlesspens.com/about

 

Knowing the importance of providing direct customer service, we eliminated the two major costs: Purchasing from local distributors who keep extremely high margins. Selling through online platforms...

 

 

 

It sounds like gray market products.

US apparently - sending from US has become very expensive!

 

Have read the ABOUT US section?

Somebody copied a sales handbook. Lots of unnecessary text - I could write that content in 3-4 sentences using also lowercase characters.

I placed an online order with them last night and got a notice of shipment with tracking number this morning. Their prices on Pelikans were very good and may give us some idea of what they actually wholesale for. I should receive the pens in three days and will report back then.

 

Edited to add that the shipping on my order (to California) was $12, a price I thought reasonable for what I purchased.

I just ordered a Caran d'Ache bright red mechanical pencil. Price $10 from $18, shipping $3.99 to US address. Seems right. I have a few models of vintage CdA pencils which I won't carry in my pocket to check off my to-do list. This seems a colorful answer. I'll post some feedback when i get it. They take PayPal so easy order.

Certainly very low prices - try them, Dr.Jekyll.

If they had the m200 Brown Marble I would've jumped on it before I even knew this website existed 😂 If that shows up at any point, I won't hesitate.

Today I ordered a blue Waterman Exception with a medium nib for $198 US normally around $500 Cdn. I got a shipping notice from US Post office that it has been picked up in TAMPA, FL 33679 and they are only charging $10 US for shipping to Canada. Ill post an update when it arrives.

I wish I hadn't already enough pens, otherwise I would add some Pelikans. Unfortunately, they don't have M1000 nibs in EF - only in M - Pelikan M is good for painting walls.

But not everything is exceptionally cheap - example:
Parker Duofold Prestige Centennial Chiseled

Endless Pens $375
Amazon $369

Waterman Exception is normally around 300 not 500 - still - 200 is VERY good.
