I’d learned of Kirk from the /fountainpens community on Reddit. I read of his many glowing testimonials and I had a few pens that I knew needed work. I received my pens back pretty quickly and I was very happy with what I got back. One pen needed only a little bit of fine tuning and it wrote very smoothly. The other two needed more work, one of which was nearly unusable to me. He explained how one of the pens had a lot of feedback on it in his writing sample which I appreciated. Before Kirk worked on this pen, it was very scratchy and scratched the paper more than it laid down any ink at all. He has breathed new life into those two pens and I hope to get to know them better! Thanks Kirk!
