I ordered this pe set its great for us who draw or wrtie in Calligraphy or Copperplate. Good price well made set. It did take a while for it to get to me. Came USPS not a good choice of shipping Overstock. But Im Happy with the set. Buy it well worth it...
I got this pen set for myself. I have saw this same set online, at other companies for way more than its worth. Don't get me wrong this is a good standard pen set. Overstock has the best deal on this pen set I've seen so far. I saw that Overstock also, carries other Calligraphy products at nice prices as well. And to get this with free shipping, when others charge ridiculous prices. Shop here first. It did take a while for it to get to me. But came in good condition. Thanks Overstock!!!!!!
I have been using these pens for years; the only problem in the past few has been finding them in a store. But Overstock.com still has them available. I have my brass-nibbed calligraphy pens for fine work, but for something you can carry in your pocket and depend on its not leaking, these are my constant shirt-pocket companion. I've made a lot of friends over the years with these. When I meet someone new, as a memory aid, I write their name in 20 different fonts and then hand them the 3x5 card. They have a colorful memento of the occasion and people have told me they've kept that 3x5 card on their dresser for decades. They see it every morning and remember the calligrapher who wrote it. The points are hard enough to give you a good, clean line, but soft enough that you can do tricks like turning the point for the down-left strokes of copperplate scripts to make them look proper, the way they never could with the ballpoint pens you were taught with in school. They seem to last quite a long time, but, at this price, it's nice to have another pen, another color, waiting for me when this one finally goes dry. And they never leak in my pocket the way my brass-nibbed fountain pens do.
These flat-nib felt pens only appeal to calligraphers, but they are SO portable, to have in a shirt pocket to use on the fly, and, in several colors. But either these are not made any more, or Overstock has the sole supply. With a calligraphy pen instantly available, I find that if I write someone's name in 24 fonts on a 3x5 card, I remember their name, and they never forget ME.
