Received my 2nd box. Beautiful pen and ink inside. Makes me want to write lots of letters. The beauty of a wonderful writing instrument is indescribable. Has just the right weight so that you do not tire of using it. Love it!!! Can't wait for #3.
I've added some nice pens to my collection and have been able to sample some great inks! It's definitely worth the money to subscribe.
I literally gasped when I opened the box.
Pen #1 is a Conklin Shamrock and it is GORGEOUS. It writes so smoothly and just delights me to look at and hold.
Pen #2 is a Moonman M2. I haven't filled it yet but it is the first one I've owned that is filled with an eyedropper.
The inks are Diplomat by Octopus and I really like the selection.
My first box was amazing! I had been looking at the Benu fountain pens, and really wanted to try one, but they are a bit expensive for trial & error. I was delighted to find one in my box! Yuletide (sparkly green with red accents) is not my favorite look, but Benu is quickly replacing Lamy as my favorite writing instrument! I loved it so much that I bought the other Benu I had been considering, and I have no regrets! It’s amazing!
The second pen was the Hongdian April Showers fountain pen. Again, not one I would have chosen, as I’m not really a fan of the cap and barrel of the pen being different colors. That said, it writes very nicely. And I was interested in trying that brand of pen, so it worked out well. It has a good weight and the cap posts, which is nice.
The ink samples were really good. I prefer a more varied color pallets (greens, purples, teals, browns, oranges, etc...). It was mostly blue and blue-blacks. Hopefully, future ones will have a larger selection, with maybe some shimmery ones, too.
All things considered, this pen box was so much more than what I expected. I’m really happy with the 2 pens and ink samples. Five stars for me so far!
I am a huge pen fanatic, especially when it comes to fountain pens. I found this site and thought I would give it a shot, thinking I would cancel if it didn't meet my expectations.
I had forgotten all about it and was having a very rough week until the box showed up. I wasn't expecting much as I opened it, I mean my week was already going bad, why would this be any different. As I opened each box, my eyes got brighter and my smile got bigger, the first time I had truly smiled in over a month. I am so happy with these 2 pens and the ink, they are my go tos.
Now I'm canceling all of my other subscription boxes (for different things) just so I can make sure I will be able to keep this one.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for putting a smile on my face. I can't wait to see what I get next!
