Monteverde Napa blue
"I bought a blue one with a stub nib - and man am I happy with it - a great writer very smooth...Thanks Norm."
P. C., Saratoga, CA
"Hi Norman, I received the Wing Sung Salmon Crest and the Monteverde Napa (stub nib) pens last Mon. & I'm very pleased with both. The Salmon Crest is an excellent jotting pen that writes fine and is reliable on all types of paper. I'm really enjoying the Napa with the stub nib. This pen is attractive and has just the right amount of heft to produce clear calligraphic lettering. It writes incredibly smooth. I must admit that I've never had so much fun writing! Thanks for these great pens."
KFG Columbus, OH
"Got it. Great pen. The clip is great and the colors really pop. Monteverde's design continues to evolve. Very nice."
M. M., Chicago, IL

Surprisingly, the Green, Turquoise and Pink have been bigger sellers than the totally clear Artista demonstrator. I guess that's due to the fact that I've sold the transparent for several years.
"Hello Norman, ¡¡Great news!! The shipment has arrived "sano y salvo (intact and safe)". I have checked the Artista pen and it manages to make me very enthusiastic. It has been a great discovery because looks and writes like a more expensive pen. It has a great appearance and is a well- finished product, the chromium-plated parts (front section and cap) and the box give the pen a very good look. I have filled the pen with the green private reserve ink and the result is fantastic. Thank you again for replacing the broken ink bottle free of charge, it has been a great gesture of attention, I admire your professionalism."
M. S., Cantabria, Spain

Jinhao Pearl Windows
"Dear Norman, my beautiful Pearl Windows pen just arrived. When I ordered it, I wasn't sure how it would measure up to the reigning favourite (my Sapphire), but I was willing to give it a try. I was surprised at how impressive and pleasingly hefty a pen it is. After I prepped it, I loaded it up with ink and gave it a whirl. It glided gracefully across the page like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers! When I'm not using it, I keep it out just so I can admire it. It's definitely a keeper. The downside to my purchase? It's whetted my appetite for at least one more of your pens! Thanks for providing another lovely product!"
C. E., Toronto, Canada
"Dear Norman, I received the Pearl Windows fountain pen. Yikes it lovely! It writes like a dream. I'm using it for some extremely important healthful New Year journaling/processing. With purple ink. Thanks also for your gracious help in discerning the efficaciousness of my "hint" regarding this pen to my husband! It worked out perfectly!"
V. S. P., Plymouth, MN

Jinhao Pearl Panels
"What a great pen design Norman. As much as I like the mother-of-pearl panels, I find that I'm drawn just as much to the pearl ones. You can't really see it in your photographs, but they are iridescent as well. I find it to be a very comfortable pen to use, whether I post the cap or not (I love that it screws on both ends!). Oh, and writes great too! I've come to expect that from pens from His Nibs.com."
C. F., St. Augustine, FL
"Hi Norman!, I received my Pearl Panels pen and wow does it write like butter!, the kind I can spread on my paper. I love it!"
D. S., Canoga Park, CA
"Hi Norman. What a magnificent design and writer! As you may remember, I also have the Pearl Windows pen, and am amazed at the quality of these pens for such a small price. Like all the pens I've ordered from you over the years, it writes like a dream. Whatever you do to nibs before you send them out, really does the trick! It looks like I have to order another one for myself...as my wife has already laid claim to this one. Thanks again for the care you show and for bringing these great designs to the fountain pen community."
P. D., Los Angeles, CA
