ISellPens.com - Reputable Dealer?

  1. So I'm shopping for fancy new fountain pen and I stumbled across ISellPens.com.

    Well they have a Pelikan M1000 for $370 and a Pelikan M800 for $265. These prices are so much lower than any where else I'm suspicious.:001_huh:

    Anyone familiar with the site?

    http://www.isellpens.com/pelikan.htm
     
  2. FYI:

    I found this website while lurking on FPN.
     
  3. I had a good experience with my one order from them, and IIRC he's got a good rep over on the Fountain Pen Network.
     
  4. ISellPens.com has a great reputation. I have bought a few pens from him / them over the last few years with no problems. I bought my M1000 for $300.00 from:
    http://stores.ebay.com/id=54445241&ssPageName=STRK:MEFS:MESST
    who now has the M1000 for $359.00 US. The company is in Malaysia which puts some people off, but I have purchased from MelPens more than once with no problems. The one issue may be that if you need warranty service there may be a problem because it comes from out of country. I simply don't know.
    Best regards, and good luck. Ken.
     
  5. Great.

    I just wanted to check since he's so much cheaper than other places I was looking.

    (I did try to join FPN to ask there, but had some technical issues.)
     
  6. Another good on-line resource is www.pentrace.com . If you are not familiar with Pentrace, they have the main "yellow board" for conversation, and the "green board" for sales. I have gotten some really nice used pens off of the "green board".
    Best, Ken.

    I've heard good things about this vendor - great price on the Lamy 2000 as well!
     
  8. I also found this forum from FPN. I have placed a dozen or so orders with Todd with no problems whatsoever. I did receive a smashed package from him once, not his fault, it looked like the USPS ran it over with a truck. Only one item in the package was damaged, and he replaced it free of charge. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

  9. Well I just ordered an M800 from him. Can't beat his prices.

    Sweet - what colour and what nib size?

    Tell us how you like it.

    +1 to Suzuki -- I am interested in hearing about your buying experience as I am thinking of getting a Pelikan from him as well. Thanks!
     
  12. I got the plain black (with gold tone) with an extra fine nib.:biggrin:

    I've got the black and gold with a fine nib - just an amazing pen both in terms of performance and looks. I've had mine for over 2 years and had no problems whatsoever.
     
  14. I'm really looking fwd to it. Hopefully it shows up early next week.
     
  15. I'd get the M800. I have the M1000, but I find it just a little too big for me and I have big hands too.

  16. A nice Pelikan will be my next pen. Either a M800 or one of the sterling/blue M625 that I've been lusting after. I've bought a few pens from Todd and every experience was perfect. Enjoy your new pen, now on to ink!

  17. As far as ISellPens.com I've never used them. I've always used SwisherPens.com


    Here's a site with everything

    www.penhero.com
     
  18. For those that have ordered from him, how long did it take to get your stuff? I ordered last Friday and haven't seen any thing yet. Just wondering.
     
  19. IIRC, it was about two weeks.

  20. Sweet.

    It was waiting for me when I got to the office this AM.

    Very nice looking pen.

    Zhivago is a great ink color.
