More Sailor deals on Amazon.com

This is an excellent time to purchase Sailor pens on amazon.com, as I have pointed out in a couple of other market watch postings. This time I want to alert people to some excellent prices by the merchant amazon.jp on amazon.com. Yes, that isn't a misprint. I am used to Amazon Global Stores as a merchant, but not another company within the Amazon universe. So, first of all go to the amazon.jp storefront:

https://www.amazon.com/s?me=A3GZEOQINOCL0Y&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER

and search for fountain pens, or Sailor fountain pens if you want less pages to scroll through. They have almost no Pilot pens and mostly low end Platinums. Below are three fairly expensive Sailor pens with what I thought were excellent prices.

 

Now the catch is that you will pay shipping of $20 for any item, but I think these three pens, for example, are still well priced even with the shipping cost.

 

The second part of this is that once you have decided to buy one item, the incremental shipping price for adding additional items is de minimus. Goofing around I added 45 items to my cart and the shipping only went from $20 to $60. Yes, tripled, but for 45 items. With 3 items it was $23. Here are examples of items with excellent prices. And these are just examples. They have 29 Sailor Shikiori 20 ml bottles of ink priced between $4.65 and $6.40.

Is this directly from Amazon?  Or a 3rd party seller?  (I've had issues with some of the 3rd party vendors, and pretty sure one of them got kicked off Amazon entirely as a result... and deservedly so, IMO).

This is a 'third party seller' which is Amazon.jp, the Japanese company that is part of the Amazon worldwide conglomerate, again, just like Amazon World Stores, or Amazon Warehouse.

Good to know.

For shipment to the US, it is the standard $800 exemption.

Could you elaborate for a newbie? :) 800/yr/person?

Thanks for the link.   I was able to find a Platinum Izumo for about $350 shipped.   However, the pen won't ship for at least 4 weeks.

Inspired by this post, I ordered some sailor shikiori and taccia inks a few days ago. Just in time! Prices went up ~80pct over the last couple days!

Well this is interesting. It looks like the items I ordered went up in price because they now have free shipping. Good deals on shikiori still ($8-$10). Taccia ukiyo-e standard price ($20).

Hmm actually some of these taccias are pretty good at 14-15 unlike sabimidori.
