About Acoustics Pens

My name is Bartek Plichta. I have been collecting, repairing, and restoring fountain pens since around 2008. I have a special interest in vintage Sheaffer pens, but also restore Wahl-Eversharp, and Parker pens.

Discover the pleasure of writing with a restored, well-tuned vintage fountain pen. Many of the pens made in the first half of the 20th. century are technological marvels. If treated with respect, they're going to give you years of reliable and enjoyable service.

Why is this site called "Acoustic Pens?" A well-tuned nib makes a beautiful sound as it glides across the page. The pen's acoustics are an important part of our enjoyment of a pen. I also happen to have a Ph.D. (Michigan Sate University, 2005) in a sub-discipline of acoustics. Acoustic Pens is based in Texas, USA.

How to order

You can see which pens are currently available by clicking "FOR SALE" or "EBAY" at the top of the page. If you find a pen that you like, please, email me and tell me which pen you'd like to order. I will then send you a PayPal invoice. I usually ship withing 24 hours of receiving payment. International shipping is available, though I typically ship by USPS Flat Rate International Small Box, unless you specify otherwise. The less expensive shipping option, USPS First Class International, does not provide insurance or detailed tracking, so you would be taking a slight risk there. Thanks!
