Thank you oh so much for this awesome pen.  Like I said in the photo, I wish all the nibs of my TWSBI pens were made by you !!!  TM

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Been wanting to take the time to thank you again for such a great job you did on my pens.  I have been using the TWSBI for 2 weeks now and have received many compliments of how beautiful my writing and signature has been on Court documents. ~ FM

Hi Mr. Brown,
I received the pen today and it's great! Perfect! It practically writes for me. It's exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much. I'm thrilled! It's exactly what I wanted.
~ MD

Just got it (oblique B /BLS) today, and it's amazing! Thank you so much! ~ TP

Pendleton ~
Since Jan. 29th I have been using only one pen, the Kaweco Dia2 with the wonderful 14K 0.9 stub that you fashioned for me.  I cannot say enough good things about the grind of this nib & my writing experience with it.  Thank you!
~ IN

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Jeez. I've got to say you outdid yourself Pendleton. I've been using this actuality as a daily writer at school. ……. it is the most effortless experience I've ever had. With other pens I have to press at least to some degree, but with this one I just barely hold it to the paper and it writes- like it's supposed to! Super smooth too. I'm loving this pen. ~ NC

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Just wanted to say a big thank you!

The pen arrived today and I am having a lot of fun writing with it!

It really does live up to the name BLS! ~ KN

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton ~
Just got it (Pelikan) in the mail and I can only say one thing: OMG, I LOVE IT!
This is my first stub nib, why did I wait so long?
Thank you, thank you, thank you. ~ JA

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I received the pen in the mail today; it's an amazing pen and the BLS grind makes it that much better! I'm feeling that it'll be one of my most frequently used pen. Thanks! ~MT

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Great job, Pendleton!  It writes like a brand new pen.  Thanks for the super-fast turn time and excellent workmanship.  I was fearful the nib had irreparable damage that may have been transferred to the body of the pen itself, but you worked your magic and gave me back my grandmother’s 1946 Parker 51.  Thank you isn’t enough, but I don’t know what else to say! ~WB

Hi Pendleton,

I am one of your VERY happy customers! I have the most wonderful silver TWSBI with your special butter cursive stub with flex-it is such a thing of beauty. I was also able to gift my husband with one without the flex. ~ RS

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton,

The pen arrived this afternoon.  I have inked it, and … it is perfect.  Line width, smoothness, wetness, all perfect.  You are one of a very few that I would entrust to do nib modifications on an Onoto.  Now, I have two beautifully performing stubs by you.  The #6 JoWo fine nib in my Scriptorium Exemplar and now the #7 Onoto medium nib in my Magna Classic.  Thanks so much. ~J H

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton,
Great! Geez!  How long did it take you to learn how to do this nib customization?  Your customization work perfectly with my handwriting..... Now I need to start sending you my special pens..... :) ~ FN

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

OMG Pendleton- Nicely done… nicely done.
The (Dupont) 5th is outstanding! … This is awesome! ~ J S

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton! The pen is absolutely awesome! You are a nibmeistering genius! Thank you! Your nibs contribute a lot to my handwriting which reflects my personality nicely :) and how happy I am using them. With best regards, AM

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton:

The pen arrived today….. the line variation is terrific. Thanks for the wonderful grind! ~ DD

Hi Pendleton,
Got the pen today, used it, and here's my extensive review:
"Unbelievably great.............................err,................ that's it".
Thank you so much. ~ MT

Thank you Pendleton. You've made the bar! :) It's just how I wanted it. … It now has wonderful line definition (thanks to you). Well done sir! ~ TDP

Pendleton,
The pen arrived today. It's awesome. I couldn't be happier.
You are a master craftsman! ~ MH

Hi Pendleton, I’ve previously purchased a couple of your TWSBI pens, and I’m happy to say that they are two of my favourite pens in my collection. ~ GS

Hi, Pendleton, thank you. Just received the white fine BLS and it is so great, I ordered the medium. ~ NC

Hi Pendleton, The pen is behaving beautifully now. Thanks for your excellent workmanship and also for being so pleasant and kind in our correspondences. It really meant a lot to me. Excellent customer service, Thank You! ~ TDP

Dear Pendleton, my pen was here when I got home this evening. And all I can say is wow! Thank you for rescuing it and bringing it back to "life." A million thanks is not enough. You are a true master of your trade, and I and my Legacy will be in pen utopia for a long time to come. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And God bless!! ~ DS

Hi Pendleton, I just wanted to let you know that the two Pelikan M800s have come in and I am absolutely loving them! The fine nib now has so much more character, and the broad nib that someone messed up writes amazing now as a medium stub! I'm a huge fan of your butter-line stub grind and you can be sure that whenever I want any nib tuned or ground, they are definitely coming back to you. ~ S K

Pendleton, The line variation is just what I was looking for. The last nib you modified for me was so smooth it is a favorite and I am sure this will be the same. Thanks, ~ JB

Hi Pendleton, Received the MB pen and it does indeed write beautifully. Please post the following comment on your website:
"I have been using Italic point fountain pens for as long as I can remember. Pendleton Brown has done an exquisite job converting my MB pen nib into an Italic nib. The pen writes beautifully, very smooth and very sharp. My entire dealings with Pendleton were flawless, from initial contact to final delivery of my MB. I very much recommend Pendleton as a very highly skilled artisan. MAM."

Pendleton, I just tried out the Pilot Bamboo pen you customized to your BLS nib. You transformed a so-so writer into a smooth, fun to use pen. The line variation is exactly what I was looking for. This expensive pen is finally worth the investment I made in it. Before your modification I had a costly, beautiful, but mediocre pen when put to paper. Now it's not only a finely designed implement but a pen I eagerly look forward to writing with. Good work. ~PG

Dear Mr. Brown, Thank you so much for getting my Lamy 2000 back so quickly. It's quite amazing to write with, you did an amazing job! ~ CW

Mr. Pendleton Brown, I have received the pens today. They are amazing! Thank you! ~ JS

I received my pen yesterday and I love it! Beautiful pen and it writes wonderfully. You did it! You must be a mindreader.... that nib was just what I was looking for. Thank you so much! ~ JR

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Mr. Brown,
The BLS Rose Gold Bold nib for my new TWSBI is splendid. Writes like a dream.Thanks so much, ~ T C

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,

Got my new pen. It writes wonderfully. This nib is awesome! I love it to bits, thank you! :) ~ AM

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The pen just arrived and it's better than I imagined. Thank you. ~ TF

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton,
This thing is fabulous!!! You will be getting a few more of my pens. Great work! ~ B L S II

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hello Pendleton
After trawling on the FPN forums and discovering how highly others rated your services, I decided that one day that your BLS grind would be my first experience into stub nibs.
There was a bit of trouble at the beginning. I didn't know how to write with stub nibs, so I kept positioning the nib in a way where it wouldn't write or seemed extremely scratchy. But eventually I got the hang of it and the nib started gliding like butter. Truly, BLS is a befitting name for such a smooth nib!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Thanks to your BLS grind, I finally truly love my TWSBI 580. The previous nib was unsatisfying. The new nib, however, is a work of art! I write with it so much that I've started getting better grades in my courses from all the notes I'm taking down!
So I just want to say: Thank you! I'll definitely be requesting more of your services in the future. :) YI

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Wow you do great work. ~DG

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

You, sir, are a true master. …. you've made this pen everything I've wanted it to be from the beginning, and more. Thank you and thank you some more! ~JS

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hello Mr Brown, I returned from my trip and was able to test out the pens at last. Thank you for adding so much to the experience of writing with them! I am especially pleased with the Pelikan, which would barely write at all before you got it. I hope to require your services again in the future. ~NI

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Sir, you are an artist and a rock star. Thank you! I just received the Rotring beautifully restored. I’m very grateful for your work …wow, what a difference....Thanks again.~ JH

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Thank-you so much. I have admired your work for a while now and am thrilled with the TWSBI I bought from you. ~ER

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The pen writes beautifully. The nib is smooth and the ink flows so consistently. I filled up 4-5 pages last night just playing with it. The nib performs excellently. I feel so elegant writing with my two pens from you. I imagine that this won't be my last from you. Thanks again for another fine pen, Pendleton. ~TDS

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Got it! This thing is buttery smooth!!! Just scored another pen … and it's definitely going your way. I don't think I can own another pen that hasn't been blessed by you. Thanks PB!!!! ~ RA

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Oh Boy, Pendleton. My gosh. These nibs are fabulous.
So smooth and lovely to write with. I stare at my hand writing and feel quite vain! CG

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Wow! I love what you did to the MB and the Pelikan. Also, the way you treat your customers is unrivaled.
Thank you, MP

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton,

You are incredible! I have bought pens on-line. I've had a few fine-tuned. Nobody, but nobody has done what you've done with these personalized pictures. All I can say is that I am just stunned at your great customer care. ~ JH

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,
Yesterday I received the JC Special Edition with my „dream nib“. And after I filled in some J. Herbin Vert Empire and started writing… it’s just „WOW!“.Exactly what I did hope for. … you may be sure, that this isn’t my last "dream nib pen“ ;-RM

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Dear Pendleton
I just picked up my new Lumi …
It writes like a dream! Thanks so much for doing such a great job .. ~JM

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton -
The Dunhill arrived yesterday and it is FANTASTIC! ...I played around with it last night and it is in my pocket today :-)
I am looking through my pens identifying future candidates! ~ BL

Thanks a lot for this wonderful pen whose nib is really PERFECT !! ~ SV

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hey there!
Got my pen, you did an incredible job! The nib is smooth and glides effortlessly over the page. It's a perfect wetness, and achieves incredible shading! Trust me, you'll get business from me again! But what more, I already suggested you to several people as well! Thanks a ton! ~ KG

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton!
I just wanted to let you know that my M1000 arrived in the mail today. You can't begin to believe how overjoyed I am with this pen now. I feel like I am writing on butter! This is the smoothest nib I have ever seen in my life. I wasn't even aware a nib could be this smooth- especially with the line variation provided with the stub. I also appreciate the excellent customer service you've provided with your speedy replies to any inquiries or requests I had. You are a master of your craft, and you can be sure that I will be sending more pens your way in the future so you can work your magic on them! Thanks so much again… SK

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Awesome! Thanks you very much Pendleton. You have made this a most enjoyable buying experience. The writing sample is a super cool touch.
~VA

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Dear Pendleton

I'm writing to inform you that the TWSBI nib has just arrived in my my box today. I've tried out this new nib, and it writes fluently with very beautiful line variations.

I must thank you a lot for such a superb craftsmanship.

Yours sincerely ~CS

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Just wanted to send you an email to happily report that your Micarta has been a very faithful companion on all my travels. It has not just thrived, but survived, across the wilds of Washington State, Belize, and Dominica. Thank you again for all your excellent work. ~ DY

I like my ale to be hoppy IPAs, my single malts to be peaty (Lafroig) and my nibs to be Pendleton Points. ~ AL

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Dear Mr Brown,

Thank you for the lovely work you did on my VP nib - the BLS is a beauty! ~ AW

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,

Received the TWSBI Mini today, inked it up and WOW! Quite some line variation, but totally smooth, flow is perfect. It’s a delight, I love it!
Thank you very much for your work, it’s something special. ~PP

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The Pelikan came in Saturday morning, and it is AWESOME! I can't say enough about how fun it is to write with, and how nicely it shows off my handwriting. Just ordered a TWSBI 580 lumi broad BLS with extra flex; darn those enablers at FPN.

Regards~ SD

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hey,

I received the pen some days ago- I've been using it for a few days now and I must say, the nib writes with so much character, it's like a dream! XD Thank you so so much for such a wonderful pen!! I'm definitely going to be sending more pens to you from now on...

Thanks! HJ

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I just got the Dolcevita, inked it up and started writing. I'm very, very pleased. When I bought the pen I ordered the medium nib knowing what a Delta medium was and what you would do to it based upon what you did for my Eversharp Skyline. I was disappointed that the Delta was so full and wet. However, now it's the way I envisioned it. Thank you again. TF

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,

The (pen) arrived today; I’m already in love with it - it looks amazing, and writes beautifully.
Thanks for everything, it was a pleasure doing business with you, and I’m sure it won’t be the last time! ~JM

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pelikan received — unbelievable writing experience.
Thank you! You have made me very happy (and cinched my decision to buy my mom a pen from you!)
THANK YOU THANK YOU! ~LD

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The pen arrived this afternoon! It is perfect! Writes so beautifully — thank you so much! ~LM

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton
Just got my BLS 580 and inked it with Iroshizuku Kon Peki. Absolutely love it!!! Writes beautifully - if you'll forgive a comparison, it's very like my Pelikan M800 with a 0.9 mm cursive italic from Richard Binder. To do this with a steel nib is outstanding work. ~ JA

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,
I just wanted to tell you how much I'm enjoying my TWBI Micarta fountain pen with my bad boy flex! Question: Will you be at the Dallas Pen Show this year working your magic on pens? I'm hoping you'll say yes!!?? ~EN

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton!!!!!
You just elevated a "great" writing pen to FANTASTIC !!
Your nib is now #1 for me, among some well known pens with a few nibs modified by other noted nib meisters.
Thank you - KS :)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The MB 149 is safely back home. I love it! It's everything I hoped for. ~MH

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Well done Pendleton. This pen did a great job across my 2.5 day seminar. I took lots of notes and the pen always started at the first touch to the paper.

Several people asked to try it and most wanted to know where I found the old antique. They couldn’t believe these things could still be purchased new.
~ BL
Thanks again for providing a tool I will use often and always with great pleasure.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton,

Wanted to let you know that I just received my Visconti in the mail, inked it up and tested it out. You did an amazing job, my friend. Thank you so much for just an incredible experience, and a wonderful job.

Wow. That's about all I can say about this one! My "Lumi" showed up this afternoon (about three, four days faster than I expected!) and what a nib! … I simply can't believe how nice it feels! This is PRECISELY what I was hoping for … everything I hoped for in a CI stub! Thanks! DK

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,

I'm dropping you a thank you note for the work you have just done for me. The Pilot Decimo nib is absolutely fantastic! I'm really pleased with this one and has become my new favourite pen. It's really impressive, with subtle line variation and perfectly smooth with a good feel when writing. …
Again many thanks. I look forward to placing another order soon!

Regards, MH

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The pen arrived today, and I love it! Gorgeous line variation and writes beautifully and smoothly!
I have a new favorite pen. Thank you very much -- LT

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi,

The pen arrived safely. Thank you, it's a superb job, as always. You are a talented man! RSC

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hey Pendleton,

Had a couple days now to play around with the Visconti and it is such a joy to write with!

Thanks again, A.A.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Got it and LOVE IT!!! ~ TR

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,

I received my mini today, inked it up and OMG!, it's absolutely great, smooth as silk and with just a bit of line variation, the exact way I like it. You are a genius, thank you so much. ~ Cheers, Vince

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Micarta with the wonderful frosted nib. I have it filled with J. Herbin Cacao Du Bresil (a brown/gray color) and stored in a Franklin-Christoph boot brown leather pen sleeve. For me, it’s perfection.

Thank you for the outstanding nib work! ~ DH

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

It arrived today!:D

Wow!…i don´t really get how you managed to get a stub fine to write that good. It´s way better than anything else i own. I´m really impressed!
I think you have provided me with my grail pen… the thing really is perfect. Thank you so much! :D Again, thank you so much for your work. You really have been a pleasure to do business with, just as everyone said it would be :) TL Norway

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton ~ What can be said? You are truly a master of your craft.
Thank you for crafting me another suprememly well-writing instrument out of this Lamy 2000! Simply a joy to write with! D Y

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Ooh, la la! … Just right! … Thrilled with the results! … A joy to write with! Love it! … Once again Pendleton you've made my boring nibs dance across the page. I'm in awe of What you can do with your magic to make my writing such a joy. Thank you! ~ CD

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,
I just recieved my (pen) this afternoon and it is truly magnificent!
The Pendleton Point has added some flair to my writing, and I particularly enjoy the beautiful line variation that occurs between the down and up strokes.Thank you so much, ~ Chris L

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The pen writes amazingly well! …. refreshingly "buttery" smooth (not something I'm used to in nibs that have fairly crisp line variation). ~ Reg

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton,

Just wanted to let you know that the TWSBI with your specialty nib has quickly become my favorite pen to use.
Thanks for the great work. ~Erik D

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi, Mr. Brown,

I got back to Lafayette from Houston last night to find my pen had arrived. I did not get a chance to ink it up until just a few minutes ago; oh, what an improvement! For me, it writes perfectly. I just tested it on some Rhodia paper, and it was very, very smooth. I am much happier with this line!

Thank you so much; you turned a pen I liked into a pen I love. -Denise R.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton,

I received the pen today. I have a few custom grinds, but I am flabbergasted with what you have accomplished. My wife asked why I was giggling… I love it.

Thanks so much! Derek N.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton,

Just wanted to say you did a brilliant job on my nibs. I should have another batch to send in the near future.
Well done, and thanks much. Rick W

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton, I received the pen today, and WOW, it's incredible. I love the line variation and the character if gives my writing. You really did a great job here, thank you so much. Very happy customer. --Todd A

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hi Pendleton, I got the nib today and its simply wonderful. Nice and smooth with great line variation. Thanks for everything! ~ BK

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hello Pendleton,
I wanted to let you know the pens arrived safely back in Texas yesterday. The Pelikan Tiffany is inked up and in use. Perfect! Exactly what I was hoping for. ~ HD

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pendleton,
I just have to say, this is THE smoothest nib I have ever experienced on any pen. It has seriously improved my joy in writing. DY

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hello Pendleton,

I just wanted to let you know that, to my absolute delight, I received my TWSBI 580 today in pristine condition. It writes like a dream, and is everything I could have hoped for!

I am also rather impressed with the pen itself. Whatever else can be said about TWSBI, their design and aesthetic sensibilities cannot be faulted. The combination of this and your fine nib-work has resulted in a wonderful writing instrument that I will undoubtedly enjoy for a long time to come.

It has been a pleasure to communicate with you, and I look forward to the time when I require another one of your pens.

With many thanks, WY
I am very, very pleased!
I just wanted to thank you and wish you all the best! ~RD

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hello Pendleton. I just wanted to let you know the Twsbi (Micarta) arrived in today’s mail – I’m very pleased with the pen, especially with the addition of your Bad Boy nib. What a combination! The frosted finish on the nib is unique and an eye-catcher. I inked the pen up with J. Herbin Lierre Sauvage for a test run. Smooth, smooth and just a perfect amount of line variation! Glad I made the nib choice that I did – something tells me I’ll be coming back to you again for one of your masterpieces. Thanks again for taking the time to explain the line variations and other differences in the nibs. It was a pleasure dealing with you.

Hi Pendleton,

Received the nib today. Perfect! Now I can switch between your broad and fine stubs with my Micarta. They're everything I was hoping for!
Thank you, again, for your skilled artistry and your impeccable customer service.

Hi Pendleton,

Pens arrived safe, and in sound condition. They also write heavenly. My excitement is further enhanced since I can now use my long sought after Snorkel.

Thanks again!

Pendleton,

I've had a chance now to play around with all three nibs and they're all a real pleasure to write with. Thanks so much for your attention. My only problem now is that I wish I had two more twsbis so I could use all three at once! ~ ZDS

Wow!!!! I just received the pen and I think you may have attained perfection.. It is amazing! I could not be any happier. Thank you so much Pendleton..My 139 now has a nib worthy of her title. ~ Sean

But, to your work: Diamine proved too dry in the Sailor 1911 full size. After two refills, I switched to Iroshizuku Asa Gao and immediately loved the nib. Yesterday, I emptied it in a three hour stretch. Love it. The nib feels great on the paper and the line it makes looks wonderful. I thought about returning it till I changed inks. I will not be without this nib. Thank you.

I have been using the Sailor music nib even more. It is magnificent. Strangers regularly comment on my writing with them. Sailors will never feel as natural in my hand as Pelikan, but the nibs, after your artistry, are perfect. Unlike the music nib before your work, they both write beautifully on everything from good copy paper to smooth Clairfontaine. I could not be happier with them

Thank you.

Charlie

Pendleton,

So I received the mini in the mail today.

WOW, it is easily my favorite pen now. Smooth as silk, and the flex is great. The rainbow effect is gorgeous.
Thanks a bunch! If I ever need nib work done you'll be the first person I get in touch with.

Regards, Jonathan Barnes

Hi!

I just wanted to say I have absolutely been loving the pen, it's absolutely dreamy!

A friend (who got me into fountain pens) really likes it as well, and she was wondering if you would be carrying the colored 580s. Amy

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

… exceeded my expectations - the pens are perfect, and I cannot put them down! I’ve gone through a lot of ink since they’ve returned, and I blame these impeccable nibs.
Ah and your packaging was incredible! Everything: perfect! These are some happy pens. …. I’m sorry for the rambling, but I just hope you know that you shaped up some incredible nibs. ~Marissa

I almost forgot to tell you that I received the pen on Saturday. I sprinted to the mail box and then to ink supply to figure out which ink to try. I absolutely love it! I plan to empty the pen out at least twice this week. Thank you so much for the wonderful nib work. I really appreciate it. Have a great weekend and enjoy the upcoming holidays!

Good evening Pendleton:

I rcvd the pens this afternoon and I don't know what to say. It's as if I bought 2 brand new hand made pens. They are beyond fantastic. Smooth is a gross understatement. They make my pathetic handwriting somewhat legible which is an achievement on its own. LOL.

I have used the services of a few nib experts worldwide but you definitely topped the list.

Thx so much.

I will be sending more pens your way to experiment with different nib styles and make adjustments. Omar

LOVING it, Pendleton!

Perfect "stub" nib, but crisper. Really impressed with this transformation and great for my hand. You'll be seeing more from me, no doubt!!!

Warmest regards,

Mark

Hi Pendleton,

You weren't kidding. Those NOS eversharps with your custom grinds kill. Your pendleton points are ideal for them. They're wonderfully expressive and yet forgiving enough to handle the flex. Fantastic work. Thank you so much, Pendleton : ).

Derek

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Well, Pendleton--twice again, I'm amazed at the refinements you made to the most recent pens I sent you...both the Delta Dolcevita and the Officina Mini don't resemble their former recalcitrant selves at all in their new silken performance. It's getting to the point where I'd consider sending you perfectly good new out-the-box pens, just for the PB magic touch...!

So thanks again,


Jack

Dear Pendleton,

I wanted to let you know that both pens showed up yesterday, and I spent most of the evening playing with both of them.

Both are amazing! The Visconti is so smooth with great line variation. With the B nib, I think that this is my favorite pen for general writing.

The Twsbi is also an amazing writer. I am not sure what you did to that nib, but it seems like it has more flex than my previous Twsbi. Great Job!!!

I have to thank you for the work that you did on all three pens. All truly amazing, and each with it's own unique writing characteristics.

Keep up the great work, and I look forward to purchasing other great works from you in the future (when my bank account recovers).

Sincerely,
David Crosier

All I can say is WOW!

You truly do have a gift!

I can't wait to get these two beauties in my possession.

I have only been writing with the Franklin for the last two days, and I am blown away with how nice it writes. I can't even imagine wanting to write with a stock nib after sampling your work.


Please keep up the great work that you do!

David Crosier

Hi Pendleton,

...My Pelikan M1000 arrived home yesterday safe, sound...and born again! Blunt and squat in its original condition, it's now a ballerina, dancing effortlessly and elegantly across the page. I couldn't be more pleased and impressed with your nib-artistry! ~ Jack
I wanted to let you know that I have received my TWSBI fp. It writes like a dream! It's so smooth even on the low quality carbon copy paper and yet gives me incredible line variation. I should have gotten something like this a long time ago. I may have to think about sending some of my other fps for you to customize in a few months when I have some more "spending money" to splurge on fps. Thank you so much! ~ Shi

Received the Lamy 2000 today. I love it! You did an excellent job. Writes as advertised..."butter smooth."
Thanks so much for the fast turn around as well. I appreciate it.

Dave

Unbelievable. What a tremendous God given gift you have, thanks again my friend... ~ Mike

Good afternoon! I received the pen today and it is absolutely delightful! Yes, you did give it plenty of panache! You are a true craftsman with nibs. Thanks again for your great work. ~ Ron

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Thanks so much for your amazing work on the pens I sent you. After spending the week writing with them, the butter line stubs are fantastic and now my favorite writers! The tuning job you did on the other pens are equally great...its like I have 5 new pens:)
Just wanted to say thanks ~ Amit

Pendleton,

I just have to remark that this nib is truly a fine piece of work! You have done well in the past, believe me, but as I wield this vac around and write with it, I can’t say anything but da*ned fine work!
Just wanted to make sure you knew. DR

Hi, Pendleton,

The nib came today. My initial impression was: WOW.... this is exactly what I was looking for. As you mentioned in your note, some minor "flex" somehow became part of the nib. I would have originally asked for this had I thought it was at all possible.It is better than I had expected, which was already elevated due to all the positive reviews I've read. Definitely both worth
the wait and worth the price. Thanks, Jeremy

Dear Pendleton,

Oh my, oh my, oh my!

The postman arrived today with your Signum Pendleton Point pen. Right out of the box this pen was writing nirvana. Actually words can't accurately describe it, but I can say that this is the pen I have dreamed of.
Stunning. Extraordinary. Phenomenal...
RAISE YOUR PRICES! If writing performance is the holy grail, these pens are worth 3x what you are asking.

With sincere respect and undying gratitude, Allen H

geez, this is awesome! - jf

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
What can I say, they are wonderful, as expected!! I can't tell which one I like more! I have one installed on the Rosette Mosaic and the other on a brown leather Retro 51 and both have become my daily user pens. - Andy ~ NZ

Hi Pendleton,

Just a note to say my pen arrived safe and sound in Ireland. I must say that I'm really happy with it.

The Butter-line stub writes beautifully... - MGB

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
WOW! Just wanted to let you know that the TWSBI nib arrived safely. And I am VERY pleased …! …the Twizzler writes just like a dream! I've been offered a box of chocolates and a Pelikan … in exchange but I'm not going for it!

Thank you so much for the marvelous work! - Sheila

Just received two pens back from (you) Pendleton, and I must say they exceeded my expectations. Thank you for the quick,professional, and courteous transaction. You took two under-performing pens and made them perfect. - PN

Hi Pendleton,

I received the pen back today. Inked it up with Diamine Poppy Red. Wow! What a beautiful smooth nib. I love the line variation and how well it writes...just like "butter". - Dan
