19.0 Where can I buy a fountain pen?
Fountain pens are sold in stores ranging from huge office supply warehouses
to small family-owned businesses. Iím not going to list them all here,
nor will I get in the business of recommending one company over another.
Many of these companies sell via the internet, or have a presence on the net
with their store's phone number. Check out the section on links later in the FAQ.
The one thing you will find is a general lack of MontBlanc presence on the
Internet. MontBlanc has an official "no promotion/sales on the Internet"
policy. But, those same companies will quote you a price over the phone and allow
you to purchase the pen via mailorder.
Here are some places where I have purchased fountain pens and have received
superb service. Some other names here were submitted by other people who have
also had good experiences. There are more, but these are some of the best:
Fountain Pen Hospital
The Colorado Pen Company
Artlite Office Supply
