I haven’t received my pen yet. The pen I paid over $500 for was shipped uninsured via the cheapest parcel method with USPS (as part of the free shipping offer). So, this is where I’m at 14 days later. I have no pen! Truphae prompted me to share my thoughts on my pen. So, my thought is, I’m so tired of being nickel-and-dimed by everyone having to do with fountain pens. They all want all my money for the smallest/cheapest effort and production quality on their part.
I've had minor issues with the pens I've received through no fault of Truphae, and they've handled it so far with excellent customer service. The condition of the pens themselves is excellent.
I resent the pen to fix the nib and have not received the pen yet. I will rate after I get my pen.
Words cannot adequately describe how amazing this Montblanc 149 has been for me. I opted for one with an extra-fine nib and could not be happier. It writes very smooth and puts out the perfect amount of ink. It also arrived super fast and in perfect condition.
I highly recommend the 149, especially at this great price. Furthermore, Truphae is an exceptional retailer and their customer service is second to none!
Pen is exactly as was described and an excellent writer. Great service by Truphae from start to finish.
