Old Stock and Recent acquisitions

Only a few pens left. When the pens are gone, this page will also vanish.

If you don't like a pen you bought, please don't ask for a refund or ask me to pay for return shipping. I'm not a business, and I'd rather not deal with difficult people.

Regarding scratches on stainless steel pens, I don't think I have ever seen Trident or a MYU or Murex that did not have at least some light scratches, not even pens that had been sealed in their original sleeves in perfect mint condition. Some scratches are inevitable because the steel clutch spring inside the cap comes in contact with the body. The brushed steel is by definition a network of tiny "scratches" so this ought not to be an issue. These pens were made to take scratches with grace. As you use the pen, new scratches will inevitably come and will blend in with the finish in time. This process of "polishing by use" will make the pen more shiny. If you are the type of person who demands a flawless pen, and cannot stand scratches and are likely to complain about them, please do not buy a MYU or Murex -- or any older Japanese pen for that matter since they all have that steel clutch spring inside the cap. It will only cause problems for you and the seller.

Back in the 1980's when Trident, MYU and Murex pens were available in pen shops in Japan, they did not come in their own special boxes, so I will wrap these pens will be in bubble wrap and pack them in sturdy three-sided boxes of corrugated board.
