When I first saw the Leonardo Speranza online it was love at first sight. I felt even more obliged to own one because of the message behind producing the fountain pen. I ordered it about a month ago and received it today. It was highly anticipated and when I unboxed it, the Speranza did not disappoint. It is a very special pen and I will reserve it for writing special memories. I hope to also pass it onto my child because this is something that I will cherish for a long time. Lastly, thank you to Fontoplumo (Frank) for answering my questions and being so quick to respond. The whole purchase and delivery experience went smoothly for me.
This is my second buy at Fontoplumo. I am very satisfied with cooperation and this seller, and definitely recommend Fontoplumo shop.
I decided to buy Caran d'Ache 844 Classic 0,7 mechanical pencil, after using Caran d'Ache Fixpencil 2mm for a while, which I have also bought at Fontoplumo.
Both MP have great balance and are both becoming my go to pencils for every day use (drawing, sketching and writing as well). Both MP are a bit shorter than most regular MP, but not too short, just right.
Feel is as if you are using a classic wooden pencil. The pencil build quality and material is of highest class. It has a classic hexagonal-shaped aluminium barrel and steel clip.
People are complaining about sharpener on Fixpencil 2mm but its fine, and very very useful. People are complaining about eraser on 844, but its also totally OK and useful. If you need to do some excessive erasing you will use a regular larger eraser.
And if you want to brag about your Caran d'Ache, famous Swiss architect Mario Botta is using Fixpencil for years https://www.dezeen.com/2016/05/04/mario-botta-fixpencil-caran-d-arche-architects-stationery/
High-quality pen. Nib tuned perfectly and soft (not flex, just yields while writing). Wet and very pleasant feedback (not scratchy at all). Facets polished very well. Very nice packaging. Piston operates well, it has the ratched sound to prevent retracting it too much. Feels indeed like an artisanal pen. Buying process went smooth.
DHL shipping is better. I had good experience with DHL shipping from the Netherlands, Belgium and UK.
Fedex is a nightmare.
Nieuwe penpunt besteld voor mijn Pelikan M805 (de oude helaas door een ongeluk vernield). Voor de zekerheid deze extra tuning genomen. Prima resultaat: schrijft zeer goed. Netjes een briefje erbij met handgeschreven "testrapport". Pen schrijft heerlijk. Goede service door Fontoplumo.
What else can I say about this ink that has not been said before. I love it. It is gorgeous and it goes amazing with my new Sailor Fairy Tale Sky Blue pen. I ordered this ink as a gift for my boyfriend, he loves it too.
About this company, this is the best, most reliable company I have bought from. I usually shop at local, USA stores. However, since my first order here I am first checking this website, then going to my local stores. The delivery is fast, tracking number is provided and everything is safely packaged. I live in the US and it gets here quicker than most stores.
Muy pocas veces escribo "reviews" pero esta tienda es fenomenal! Muy recomendada! 5 stars
I absolutely love the look and feel of my new pen. It really has character and in time it will not only hold its own character, but will also show mine.
Bought this pen as a gift to myself for having been offered a permanent position.
Fontoplumo offers great service; quick to respond to questions and orders are packed and sent with care.
