Thank you for your cooperation in making my service efficient and relatively free of risk. While we will make every endeavour to dispatch this item in a timely fashion, delays with couriers/postal agencies, as well as import authorities eg. An important note regarding the nib and writing performance of this fountain pen.
A fountain pen nib can be a joy to write with, provided it has been tuned properly. Unfortunately factory settings are not optimal for some fountain pens that are new "out of the box", and occasionally tuning is required. It may need some tuning. Then I will wash the nib unit and dry it.In this way I can be sure the pen will write correctly........ BUT sometimes there some residual water/ink will find its way down the feeder during courier air travel. This item is in the category "Collectables\Pens, Writing Items\Pens\Ball Point".
