HisNibsLogog update New models for the Masters!
April 8, 2017

It's Masters weekend -- and I don't even play golf!

Due to the 4-1/2" lift on the right shoe of His Nibs, golf has never been a sport that was practical for me (uneven ground is my nemesis, and one ankle break is enough, thank you). I'll stick with table tennis!

However, I love watching golf -- particularly the majors -- and it doesn't get much better than the Masters (how about the fact that #1 Dustin Johnson had to withdraw because he fell down a couple of stairs right before the tournament began?).

All of this is preamble to the fact that this newsletter is going to be very short and sweet -- as I have to get back to the TV!

I'm excited to introduce a resurrected model from Conklin, the Stylograph, as well as a new addition to Monteverde's Regatta line.


As this newsletter goes out to a mailing list of thousands of customers, please understand if there's a delay in answering your email queries or orders after one of these is sent. We will respond in order received and as soon as possible!

IMPORTANT SERVICE NOTE: Every nib that ships from His Nibs is closely examined under high magnification and tuned or adjusted if needed. About 85% of modern nibs need some adjustment out-of-the-box from the manufacturer for an optimal writing experience. Most commonly, the tines of the nib are misaligned -- which would cause scratchiness at the minimum; the slit between the tines is partially or fully closed -- which would starve the nib of ink and at best cause skipping; or the slit between the tines is too wide -- which will either again cause skipping, or conversely, flooding. There are other factors -- such as separation of the nib from the feed -- that are inspected and repaired before any pen leaves the Palace. The only 100% guarantee of course comes when the pen is actually filled with ink and written with for the first time, but our pre-shipping inspections and tunings have eliminated 99.99999 (my finger is getting tired) of the frustrations that a customer experiences when first using a new fountain pen. Although this can be time-consuming on occasion, it affords our customers a much more pleasant experience when receiving a fountain pen from His Nibs -- and saves us the frustration of dealing with returns!
