Customer Reviews

Kakuno
The fine point is too broad to use on check stubs but great for general writing. I bought an extra fine pen for the check book writing and it is just right. The writing feel of an ink pen is just great, smooth and effortless.

Custom 912
This is my first purchase on PenChalet and I have to say that I am very satisfied with everything. Precise and fairly quick shipping times, excellent service. The Pilot 912 is a really well made pen, solid, the material is of high quality, sober line, not flashy but elegant. The Soft Fine nib is a marvel, it is a true semi-flexible which allows for a good variation of stroke. PERFECT! thanks to the PenChalet staff

Metal Falcon Collection
Great pen, wonderful nib. Light flex. Have a Fine nib on the Black and a Medium nib on the Burgundy. Perfectly finished as usual for Pilot. I myself prefer the heft of the Metal Falcon vs. the resin bodied model but still use a resin I bought years ago. These pens are woderful.

Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
Love Iroshizuku inks. They are consistent and lubricated so they make smooth nibs heavenly. Can’t beat the bottle they come in. Shin-Kai is a cool blue-black with a surprising red sheen. I love it.

Custom 823 Collection
I have had my 823, fine nib, for roughly a week now. Straight out of the box this pen wrote - and writes - brilliantly. The nib glides and the pen is neither bulky nor thin despite the voluminous ink capacity. My first inking, as it were, lasted me a week and I have written with this pen everyday and rather extensively. Furthermore, the 823 is without question the best fine nib I have ever used, and I speak as someone who has something of a fountain pen addiction. It's a traditional looking, cigar-shaped pen (I have the smoke edition which to my eyes is black). Simple, but superlative. If I had to recommend one pen, this would be it. And if I had to recommend one company from which to purchase the Custom 823, Pen Chalet is it.

Vanishing Point Collection
First...I have had my eye on a Vanishing Point for sometime since I started into fountain pens. The idea of a retractable nib was an awesome thought. Not having to worry about my nib being bumped, drying out, or sitting on the page and have the ink sucked right out of my pen onto the page, if I didn't recap immediately. I'm not lazy but the recapping of pens is not what seems intuitive. Having to retrieve the cap as it rolls right off the desk and out of sight, then needing to climb on the floor and search for it, is not what is enjoyable. Having been born into the era where a click pen was the norm, the Vanishing Point was a great thought.

Second...I also am not the fancy type so the matte black had me from first sight. I really like my fountain pens, but again I do not seek the lime-light when out and about and using my pens. The matte black just seems so unassuming, which I like. For me it just blends in.

Third...When I finally decided to go for this one, I of course hunted around for a deal. I'm a bit on the frugal side. I hunted and found a deal at of all places Target Online. I thought about it and figured to give a try to Pen Chalet because during my search they had a banner that said they would price match. Target is an okay store, but I really don't think they handle many fountain pens and I didn't think they would be able to handle any fountain pen related issues or questions that may arise from my purchasing from the Target store. So I contacted Pen Chalet and to my surprise they really came through and handled the whole transaction with flying colors. Pleasant, kind, and when I spoke to a young lady about the purchase from Pen Chalet, she was very knowledgeable and kind. She even had her own experiences with a Vanishing Point and that reassured me that my decision to purchase from Pen Chalet was the right option. I have used other fountain pen online retailers and would have used them, but Pen Chalet boldly displayed their price matching banner and that was what appealed to me.

Follow-up...I have been using my Matte Black Vanishing Point with an extra fine nib using Noodler's Blue, daily for about a month now and I am very delighted I made the purchase. Smooth writer, plenty of ink flow, not at all uncomfortable as one would expect with the clip in such a position. The ease of just extending my thumb slightly upward over the retractable button, is easier than I thought. It reacts just like the click pens we've all used. Smooth action and the nib exiting and retracting back into that barrel is easy. I also like that the form of the pen keeps the nib off of my paper if I lay it down without retracting it. So no ink loss from the paper wicking it out of my pen. Also laying the pen down I can rest assured that it will not roll off the desk, the clip does the trick.

Bottom line... Pen Chalet handled my price match with no problem, my transaction with no problem, they were professional, kind, and pleasant. The Vanishing Point is proving to be one of my daily go to pens, I had been using a Lamy 2000 daily. So as you can see I am very satisfied in my new go to pen!

Falcon Collection
This pen writes absolutely beautifully. The soft, smooth nib is so delightful. It is quite light, and is perfect for long writing sessions. I took off a star from the style because it is not the most aesthetically pleasing pen I own, but the writing experience is absolutely spectacular.

Vanishing Point Collection
Received my stormtrooper VP the other day, and honestly every time I see it, I *have* to pick it up and click it. Its positively addicting. The medium nib is smooth, even on rough paper that my fines/extra fines are a bit scratchy on. The ink flow is just a bit bit wet, which makes it a little bit bolder of a line than I was expecting, but its quickly becoming a favorite in my modest collection!

Yes I like writing with ink pens. I have a nice clear plastic one, it shows the ink in it. I'am very happy with my purchase. Do you also have fountain pens to buy? Think you.

Vanishing Point Collection
Think I have finally found my favorite daily carry. I purchased the Black Matte Vanishing Point in a fine gold nib. This is my second Pilot Vanishing Point, the first has a medium nib which writes quite wet and wide. I find the fine writes like a wet somewhat narrow medium in any other pen. It’s perfect. The mechanism is flawless, the nib is butter smooth on paper and easy to use. I prefer it to my Platinum 3776 for everyday writing, although that too is a wonderful pen. The one I have gives a bit more scratchy feedback on paper compared to the Vanishing Point. The fullness of the Black Matte barrel adds comfort for my hand. I purchased both Vanishing Points on sale at Pen Chalet and am very grateful and pleased. Excellent service and terrific pens.

Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
Iroshizuku is the best performing ink I have used so far. Yama Budo is such a great color, especially on off-white paper like my Apica notebooks. It dries quickly and lubricates nicely. The price point is higher than others, but it's a premium ink with premium performance!

Kakuno
I ordered the Kakuno in extra fine nib with clear body. It's advertised in its packaging as the best beginner fountain pen and I am somewhat inclined to believe based on the comfort when holding it and how there's little feedback when writing despite being an extra fine nib. It's a friction fit nib and feed so unlike a Platinum Preppy, a full cleaning is possible if need be. I probably would have skipped the other so called beginner pens I purchased had I got one of these.

Vanishing Point
Great nib for a great pen. The Vanishing Point stub isn't the widest stub out there, but still provides line variation enough to add flair and interest to your writing.

Kakuno
It was my first dip to fountain pen and it checks all the boxes I wanted without breaking the bank. Demonstrator body check, extra fine nib size check, and lastly affordable price check. I've been a fan of Pilot and this one didn't disappoint. Writes fine smooth lines.

A great choice for first time user. Oh I drop it twice and the body seems to hold pretty well. Also it was easy to disassemble and clean coming from someone with no experience. Highly recommended.

Comes with a black cartridge and a very easy to follow manual. Cute package overall. I already get compliments using it. Makes me want to buy another one as a back up. It's that good.

Kakuno
The Kakuno is a great starter pen or a quality writer for working on-the-go (meaning if it vanishes suddenly, you can replace it for a reasonable price.). My medium nib is smooth-writing, and the grip resembles the Lamy Safari. Mine seems to favor Quink over more dense inks.
