    I really enjoy using your pens…I just received my left oblique italic nib set and enjoy writing with it. I want a nicer pen than came with the set…will any of these new pens accept my nibs? Thanks, Ed

    Hi Ed,
    Thank you for your comments, great to hear you are enjoying your set. Unfortunately, the nibs in the ML1856 pens are a lot bigger and therefore the nibs you currently have would not fit the pens. Your comments will be forwarded to the right department for consideration in the future.
    Thank you, MPC

    This one is really great fountain pen. The red storm and purple mist are very much attracted to me. As soon as possible I collect this beauty. Thank you so much.

    Hi Eric. We are currently out of stock of the ML1856 fountain pens- we should have them back in stock around July/August. Thank you for your feedback and interest!
