For Sale

All the pens listed on this page are preowned and have been used by me; pens do not come with boxes, unless indicated otherwise. All pens are in good to excellent condition and all pens write perfectly, unless indicated otherwise – but all pens are used, so expect micro scratches and other minor marks of use.  I will be happy to discuss and show the state of the pens in more detail if you’re genuinely interested in buying.  I guarantee all these pens to be authentic. Pictures included are of the pens being sold.

If you want to see these pens in action, check out my video reviews (please use the menu above to navigate: all reviews are listed there).  If you are interested in buying one or more pens, please send me a message (sbrebrown at gmail [.] com).

Shipping costs are not included in the prices listed; shipping to the US with insurance and tracking costs at least $22 (actual price, international mail is expensive). Bear in mind that if you choose a less expensive shipping method without insurance and tracking, there is nothing I can do if a pen goes missing in the mail (or, in formal terms, I cannot be held liable for lost pens). Prices are negotiable within reason and listed in US dollars.

Precedence is given to the first person who indicates s/he definitely wants to buy the pen.  In other words: if you ask me a multitude of questions about the pen, or want to have time to think about the purchase and someone else comes along who seeks to purchase the pen straightaway, the pen goes to that person.

Pen purchases are considered final sales.

Brown Protector (1)

Brown Protector (2)
If you don’t have relatively large hands, these rubbery squares are great assistants when you’re trying to pull a nib that won’t budge, when you try to disassemble a converter, etc.  If you do have relatively large hands, they’re useful too :-). Bear in mind that when you use devices like these that amplify your strength, you run the risk of damaging your pen: so use these smartly and with care – I won’t accept responsibility for ruined pens. For just $10, you get two of these (approximately 4″x4″), and the price includes worldwide shipping.

    Is it possible to buy the Lamy 2000 with the broad nib?

    • sbrebrown

      Do you mean you want to buy the Makrolon Lamy 2000 but with the broad nib that’s on the 2000M? That is possible.

      • Marian

        Yes, that is what I meant. Will this affect the price?

  • Jen

    Do you still have the orange Visconti? I’m so far down the rabbit hole with them now I might as well not try to resist. If so how much do you want for that one?

    • sbrebrown

      I do, thanks for the interest. Shall we make it $185?

      • Jen

        For the calligraphy one? That seems reasonable. Can it wait until I get paid next week? thanks!

        • sbrebrown

          It’s a set with a round medium nib, an italic nib, and an elastic nib. We can wait until next week.

          • Jen

            Thanks! I appreciate it! As far down the rabbit hole as I am (it’s still your fault I bought the Desert Springs;) I might as well just enjoy it

    If I wasn’t building a house or didn’t have bad habits such as eating I would go for the Visconti van Gogh but alas I just blew my allowance on a pilot VP.

    • Pascal Leers

      I live in the Netherlands. And it’s not easy seeing these beauty’s for sale. Especially the Lamy 2000. But I did spend my fountain pen money on a Pelikan last month.. Sign….

      • sbrebrown

        No rush, they may be up for a while :-).

  • Robinkeys

    Wow… this is like Michael Jordan selling off all the basketballs he’s used throughout the years!

  • Subhadip Maji

    I have a question why are you selling almost all pens except the pelikans ?

  • Schloken Greesan

    Wow,6 pens from 2013’s Goat pens. Time changes opinions. But …… I thought you really liked the faber castell e-motion,didn’t you ?

  • Sam Ferguson

    Slightly off topic, and please excuse my cluttering up your conversation thread regarding your actual sales…but does your selling the Yard-O-Led Retro Grand mean we’re not going to get an episode of “Serious Nibbage” about that pen? 🙂

    • sbrebrown

      Probably, yes.

  • Manuel Piñeiro Mourazos

    Well, I just found out that I own a Lamy Safary 2006 limited edition O_o

        Really enjoy your pen videos. I have learned a lot about pens, and, I am sorry to say, I have started buying more! Anyway, I am old school (pocket watches, fedoras and amateur radio). Many thanks for all the excellent advice and pen discussions. I also used to be into Aikido, and have an interest in Japanese swords. Too bad we are so far away, we could meet up and enjoy a coffee or an adult beverage.

        Let me know details about the Pelikan. What model was it? I have a Pelikan 800, and I love it, but I really want to try an italic. Is it a formal italic or cursive italic nib? How flexible is the steel nib?


  • michael hipius

    Wow! This is a tough few months for me- do you think you might do something like this again towards the spring/summer? Great videos, Stephan- you helped me keep my sanity when my son was in Intensive Care this past summer.

    • sbrebrown

      I fear these will be all the sales. I hope your son recovered well!

    Hey Stephen, the conway Stewart Model 100 “yellow swirl; is it the one you have reviewed in one of your videos? because the one in your video seems to have a medium italic nib.–Wtw

    • sbrebrown

      It is the same pen, but with a different nib.

    It it possible to add a last update date somewhere on the page to know when you make changes?

    • sbrebrown

      I’ll try to to that, starting with the next update.

  • Mike Hall

    So I might be out of line but and if so I apologize but would you take $80 for the pro gear slim? I would also give you the rights to my first born as well:) Seriously though if you would sell it for $80.00 I would buy it right away.

  • xilebat

    Can you swap Lamy nibs on the Dialog? I have no business need for an oblique nib…

    • sbrebrown

      I can, but currently, I only have steel nibs. I could order a gold nib if you want, but clearly that would add to the price.

      • xilebat

        No, I meant “can you” as in “is it possible?”. I have plenty of Lamy nibs… American slang… gotta love it.

    Wow. $7US for a small square of transparent plastic that costs pennies and $10US for two small squares of what appears to be anti-slip shelf liner that you can get for $8 for an entire roll? Your pen prices may be decent, but the prices you’re asking for those items is truly outrageous.

    Hello Stephen! Just dropping in to see what you have for sale again. Did you sell most of your regular-type pens? Looks like you only have the commissioned ones now. I always check your site before I go to Ebay – having a pen once owned / reviewed by you gives it great value to me! Do you have other pens for sale? Thank you ~ hope all is well! Oh – I have one of those Retro pens. Excellent pen, excellent company.
