Purchase warranty

Your satisfaction is an important factor when selling these old fountain pens, as one fountain pen is often not enough and I would like you to count on me for your second or third purchase. All fountain pens are tested (charging mechanism/writing) and will be delivered to you in a clean, tidy condition, as described. As the fountain pen shows its true face when writing, I offer a one month money back guarantee on the pen you buy! During this time, you can try it out, make sure it fits your hand the way you want it to, if the strokes are correct, etc.

In addition, if you have any problems with the fountain pen within an unspecified period of time after purchase (dropping it, damage to the tip, etc.), I will try to help you as much as I can, to the best of my knowledge and ability, to repair the pen.

Fountain pen buying

You can view my own collection of fountain pens in the image galleries on the website. Most of them are family heirlooms, a heritage that I commemorate with this website. I am constantly adding new pieces to the collection. On this site you will find mainly American-made pens, including Eversharp, Esterbrook and Sheaffer, but also a number of old Parker, Eagle, Wearever, Watermans, Montblanc, Snapfil, Morrison, Penol, Reform. Pelikan and Hoover, as well as Hungarian-made fountain pens. Some items are for sale or exchange. If you have a fountain pen of this brand or similar type for sale, please let me know! The purchase of a complete fountain pen estate is also possible. Please send me pictures of the fountain pen (nib, cap, internal mechanism) and a short description of its condition (by email). As I have no appraisal qualifications, I cannot judge the value of the pens. I am in favour of the traditional market situation: I expect the seller to quote a price for the pen to be sold. In other words: tell me what you want for the pen.


About me

My name is Tamas Szucs, I am 54 years old, I live in Hungary (EU) and I have a very smart son. My original profession is cameraman, photographer and video editor.  I started using and learning about fountain pens as a hobby when I was 40 years old, when I inherited a collection of pens from my father.
I have always loved the "stuff" of old writing - tools, pens, paper, pen and ink. It wasn't long before I decided I wanted to learn more about pens, how they work from the inside. It was a natural decision for me to also get involved in the repair and restoration of fountain pens.
I soon realised that I wanted to repair pens not only for myself but also for others. I have always loved making people happy and it still gives me great satisfaction when I hear that a customer is very satisfied.
I have a lot of experience in grinding a fountain pen tip.
I personally presented a piece of my father's collection to Prime Minister Viktor Orban in 2021.

Two misplaced fountain pens
mistakes at the Money Museum (Budapest)

On 15 March 2022, the Money Museum, founded by the Hungarian National Bank, was opened on Széll Kálmán Square (the political opposition name for it is Moscow Square, although this has now been given a special meaning), in the former Postapal Palace. An exhibition on the history of money is housed in a quarter of the building's floor space. Unfortunately I was unable to make it to the opening ceremony, but I recently made up for it by visiting the museum. During my trip, I came across two fountain pens on display. I shouldn't have.
