Shipped very quickly - and well. Arrived just as it should have and before expected. Would definitely buy from them again!
The purchasing and receiving of the USA Lamy Safari went flawlessly. It was packaged well and was received sooner than expected. The pen was in excellent condition and was exactly as described.
I have a small (but growing) collection of these fountain pens which I love for their ease of use, portability, and variety of colors. I saw this one (the US Independence pen) a couple of years ago and have had a little trouble tracking one down until I happened to see one on the Truphae site. Admittedly, I was skeptical initially, but... The fact that it's a small, family-run business won me over, and so I took a chance. My pen arrived so quickly, in perfect condition in its lovely special red-white-blue box, with a handwritten note of thanks, and I could not be happier with it. I would definitely purchase from Truphae again!
Never heard of LAMY fountian pens!! Mom was going to concert there, and I went shopping! I chanced upon this pen store, and WOW! What a store!! WISH Chris would open a store here in Atlanta!! PLEASE!!!
The packaging is nothing I’ve seen for ANY LAMY Safari pen! A blue cardboard box with LAMY all over the box, and a creme felt pen holder inside, and a white cardboard slipcase cover! VERY NICE packaging!! Now that I’m collecting Ltd. Edt. Safaris, I think I’m up to 10 of them?? But this being my first LAMY, and the packaging are special to me! THANK YOU Chris for starting this addiction!!! AWESOME STORE!!! Please come to Atlanta!! For such a big city, ZERO pen stores, except Mont Blanc boutique, where they are so snooty, you’d think they were selling Rolls Royce’s!! Not pleasant. That’s all we have here. Pen writes like a dream, for having a steel nib!! I prefer the med. nibs. Love them! LOVE TRUPHAE!!!
I ordered a Lamy Safari US Independence special edition fountain pen, and it was sold at a reasonable price and I received it quickly. The handwritten thank you note is a very nice touch for pen specialists-- I even considered reaching out to the seller to ask what pen and ink were used to write "Thank You". I would buy from again.
