I really enjoyed my Penthusiast (middle level) box this past month. I got my very first-ever Visconti Pen, a Florence, Italy, company known for quality and design. Mine was a Classic, Medium nib, which is a terrific performer on the page and which looks good, with an ideal weight for me. My ink was a pleasant surprise.
: seven samples of variously colored inks from different companies. The colors covered the rainbow. This introduced me to the different inks and how they perform. This was a very good box full of welcome surprises!
I got a Lamy Studio in Fine. It is very nice. I got another V-mail ink in red. It is fine. Love the Esterbrook pen sleeve. Love getting this in the mail every month. Very fun. I have a new favorite pen thanks to this!
I really loved the pen and knew my dear friend (who LOVES purple) would love this as a Birthday Gift! AND she did!!! It was great to have a perfect gift for a friend who loves to write creatively!
Loved everything so much! Getting the box is like opening that “special” present we all hope to get. Awesome!
I was very excited to get my first box! The idea of a pen/ink subscription was and is very intriguing to me, someone who enjoys pens and surprises. I loved that Truphae heeded my request for shimmering ink. However, I did kind of expect a more unique pen and a bit more than just pen and ink .... and maybe that would have been the case had I been able to afford the highest subscription option. Maybe there’s a way to include other unique items which compliment pen and ink or smaller bottles of ink or include ink samples so paper or cases could also be included. The personal note was a great touch! I’m not ready to give up my subscription; just wanted a bit more excitement.
