Any good recommendations of pen shops that ship internationally and are sailor pen dealers, which also have an option to modify the nib/feed to your personal preference ? share your experience !

Nibsmith.com sells Sailor fountain pens, will ship internationally, and Dan Smith does excellent nib work in my experience, although I've only bought Pelikan and Aurora pens from him (precisely because his nib work was included in the price) but not Sailor pens.

You'll have to confirm with Dan whether Nibsmith.com is an authorised Sailor pen dealer. I see some pens that are "Only for authorized Sailor North American Retailers" listed there, but that's not really conclusive proof.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

If you are okay ordering from overseas, I've found that the Writing Desk are able to get it where you want. I get my Sailors from them.

They are a B&M and official Sailor retailer. Send them an email if you like.

Try Pendleton Brown in the US. He's the one who worked on four problematic Bock 060 feeds on my Kaweco 14c nibs. Excellent communicator with a great sense of humour.

I guess you should post a link to this thread in the Japanese subforum.
