Honestly, I’ve only been able to buy a few pens from Kirk over the years, but they have all been absolute delights. A Sailor Promenade smooth as hot butter. A Pilot Prera tuned to perfection. Today I received a Cross Solo. I cannot overstate just how much I love this pen. I love it so much I came straight here to tell you how much I love it. But more than being a highly skilled nibmeister, Kirk puts so much time and effort into this business, his passion is tangible. He doesn’t provide good customer service, he provides a great customer experience. I honestly have no idea how he does it all. Practically superhuman. I cannot recommend Kirk and Pen Realm highly enough.
