Great first experience of Penshare! Arrived the day after ordering. I’ve loved the unique look of the TWSBI Precision and although I’m a TWSBI stub user - I’ve wanted to try a fine nib. Being able to use the pen as I would my own for 2 weeks was a great decider in if it suited me before I put it on my Christmas list.

As it turned out it wasn’t for me- the pen body was a tad too slim for my large hands, not suited to my lengthy journaling, but I was surprised at how much More impressive it looked in real life!I learned blogs, Instagram and YTube doesn’t beat physically using your dream pen.

A Montblanc is my next Penshare - I don’t think it’s for me but I could be wrong!!!

Everything went smoothly and my pen arrived back in perfect condition, as usual. Thanks again Jon.

As usual it's a pleasure to borrow something from Jon and this is a amazing pen to hire to try out a Mont Blanc.
