I absolutely love fountain pens and the opportunity to purchase luxury pens at a significantly lower price was a major factor in my decision to purchase this. The pens I’ve got so far are absolutely amazing in every way, although a more ranged nib selection would be nice such as Stub or Flex etc.
The box I received in June was highly disappointing. The Stipula Adagio included was very hard to fill for a piston pen and the Moonman M100 was subpar and shouldn't have been included in the top priced box. I had also requested for a change in my subscription to receive journals instead of inks and it wasn't fulfilled for this order. I again received more inks that I never intended to use. I am going to be looking to cancel my subscription since the majority of the pens that I have received aren't any good.
In my second box I received an Otto Hutt pen, a pen case and a bottle of red ink. On initial glance the pen looked a little uninspiring and I was a bit disappointed. However, on using it I can honestly say it is one of the most incredible writers I own. I absolutely love it and it is something I would never have chosen - which is exactly why I signed up to this box!
So, I admit I was skeptical to shell out $155 a month for a random fountain pen that I did not pick myself; much less from a company that I have not dealt with in the past. My goal was to discover new brands/models I would not likely find on my own at this price point. After my purchase, I went from suspecting I may receive some overpriced, horribly gaudy pen that no one else would buy; to concern that my special requests would be ignored. My concerns were put to rest when I received my first box approximately 5 days after ordering it. All I can say is "Slam Dunk" for Truphae! It was clear that my requests were considered and adhered to, and a bonus to me: from a brand I was not previously familiar with. Truphae came through with flying colors and definitely gained a long-term customer in the bargain. Great job, Truphae, thank you for your attention to detail and providing this excellent service; cannot wait until next month.
Thank you so much for the BENU Cranberry Tonic. Definitely a gorgeous addition to my collection. Moonman was a brand I was well acquainted to and absolutely love. Glad to have an M2 on hands now too. And the Diplomat Octopus inks were gorgeous. They were quite vibrant! Looking forward to next box! 😃
