Used the converter as soon as I received it. Fits my vintage Sheaffer perfectly and very happy with purchase. Came well packaged with a personal touch. There was a postal strike at the time which meant a delay in delivery, but I was able to track the package easily with the Shop app.
Would recommend buying from Grand Visions again.
One sees so many offers for vintage pens on the net, claiming to be near-mint condition or pre-owned but totally refurbished -- but the result upon using such equipment is often disappointing. This was not the case with the GRAND VISION PEN I bought. The pen body was in PERFECT Shape, the clip was firm, the jewel in the cap and at the end of the body were unmarred, and the nib, a medium, writes super-smoothly from all angles (i.e., it has no distracting sweet spot) and without bleeding. The envelope could have been padded a bit more generously -- the mails are rough -- but all was well. Thank you. Moshe H Spero, Prof., Efrata, Israel
The pen I bought from Grand Vision Pens, Ariel Kullock Parker 51 with broad italic nib, is now officially my number one pen, and I own about 40. The experience of finding it, communicating with Alex from Grand Vision, him helping me make the decision if this would be the right pen for me, then buying it with confidence, promptly receiving it, and the pen surpassing my expectations, was flawless. Alex knows what he’s doing with his fountain pens, is passionate and serious about them, and I would unreservedly recommend Grand Vision Pens to anyone interested in buying an amazing pen.
1st class. Recommended
I bought a Yard O Led Diplomat pencil, I’m very pleased with this pencil because I’ve never been disappointed with any of the Yard O Led products. Thank You!
The pen arrived on Monday, ordered on the Friday. Very pleased with the pen, excellent condition with barely a mark to be seen, writes well and has just the amount of flex I like, the nib is not as smooth as it could be and writing on note paper or anything other than high quality paper gives some feathering, hopefully I can solve this with some Noodlers ink.
Generally really pleased with the item from Grand Vision Pens, it's a pleasure to write with.
A bigger pen than I expected, one of the largest in my collection, but very comfortable in the hand. The resin is a lovely swirly mix of dark and lighter blue. I like the matt black cap and section as a contrast. Incorporating some of the resin between the two silver cap bands is a lovely detail. Very nice to write with, with a smooth nib (fine) and pretty Gioia logo. All in all a beautiful pen -a must for any collection, and a great pen for every day writing.
One of a kind, absolutely splendid!
Lovely beautiful working Waterman fountain pen. I'm happy with it.
Impressive and attractive, good value fountain pen, reminiscent of the much missed Delta brand and the classic Parker Duofold, from Naples.
The section can be unscrewed to insert the included rollerball, a feature that Visconti sometimes has, but at a far higher price.
So impressed that I'm seriously considering adding the new Gioia Bellavista 'Pompeii', that is released next month, to my collection.
These Italian, milled resin pens are very attractive and quite addictive and Gioia have joined the gang of usual suspects at a very competitive price point.
Spoke to Mr Grand on the phone and exchanged emails and he's a very nice and efficient person to do business with.
This has been my grail pen since it’s release. I have purchased pens from Grand Vision Pens in the past and I have never been disappointed. I regularly look on their site and when I spotted the Rudyard Kipling pen I had no hesitation whatsoever in clicking on the buy now button. A beautiful pen in pristine condition. A beautiful large nib that gives plenty of line variation, all in all a great pen at a reasonable price. Thanks again Grand Vision Pens for another great deal.
I already had a Parker 75 with a medium nib, which was bought for me new when I left school and was moving into a grownup world. I have always loved the way the Parker 75 writes, so when I wanted something with a fine nib, I wanted another Parker 75. The gold perle is a beautiful pen to look at, well balanced, and a pleasure to write with. The fine nib is lovely, but less forgiving than the medium nib when using drier inks. With an ink with good flow though it is a real pleasure to write with.
Delivery was fast, and the pen arrived well packed and as fabulous as I had hoped. Excellent service. Thank you.
A great pen, delivered on time and in good condition! Will keep an eye out for more...
I've purchased a couple of vintage pens via the site and matched the description perfectly. I'm mainly a collector of new pens, but feel the urge to add some fine writing implements with age.
The latest arrival was a c1930's sheaffer which I did some research on when I saw it on line.
Price was exactly what I was expecting, condition as described. Photos clear and precise to what I received. It's been fabulously restored to mint condition as stated.
There was a delay in the posting... but *NOT* Grand Vison Pens fault. I made contact over the festive period and got a swift, courteous response and solution. 3 more purchases due tomorrow I was so impressed with the my last couple of purchases.
My go to site for vintage and collectable pens.
I cannot recommend Grand Vision Pens more highly. They helped me choose a beautiful gift for my husband for Christmas. I really enjoyed purchasing from a small, passionate company who really know their stuff.
