The packaging was good. After sale service was also appreciated.
Design, materials and build are top notch. True to the Japanese aesthetics and workmanship. The two tone nib is just gorgeous. Right size and balance for me (posted). There is zero hesitation when it comes to writing. Pen simply glides over. Medium fine nib is having some feed, which I prefer. Ink capacity is decent for my use. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. This is one pen that should be part of every collection.
These Sheaffer pens are great, and various refills are possible. I chose black for a change, it comes black mat with a Porshe like red line. Plus you can engrave it.
I have purchased this pen to gift it to someone. This pen is such a beauty with ebonite body. Makoba team made the whole process of purchasing so smooth. The team was kind enough to consider my request of delivering the product in one day on my request and shipped the order on urgent basis.
The pen I received was in great condition with original box.
Bought recently, filled ink and tested it. Kept other pens aside and I am using it now. Really good. I go for broad nibs usually. This one is broader. Again thanks to Makoba Chennai staff for delivering it in few hours.
A rather unconventional shade of purple, almost in the range of plum. Moderately wet, saturated ink without water resistance. Ideal for a wet pen. The shade is highly comparable to the Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-budo.
Makoba sent my international package quickly and didn’t charge for shipping. Would purchase again
You get something special for just 150 Rupees!
This was the first pen I bought in Makoba. Chose this pen for its colour, look and the promise of a special cap not letting the nib and feed to dry out. It is living up to its promises. Very good to hold and write. Wet and smooth.
Very smooth broad 14K nib to write effortlessly write on any kind of paper. Though of having a bigger converter like its tarnsparent siblings but the quality won't over the quantity of the ink held in the pen.
Excellent purchase process with proper support from Ansh based at Makoba.
Beautifully packed in a way there won't be a damage to the contents from thrown from 1st Floor of the building
The finer nibs are very finely ground. Something one can expect from a brand like Pilot
Interesting weighty page holder made of brass.
Sturdy two tone colored mechanical pencil (Brass and copper).
Nice weighty and chunky mechanical pencil. Clips can be purchased separately.
Nice solidly made item.
Love the feel and touch of the pen. Rekindled childhood memories. Good pen. Engraving should be coloured whie.
Excellent pen. Nothing to say about writing experience. Try any iro ink if you want a F nib option.
Very nice pen , magnetic pen cap design is great !
I have many inks from Montblanc and like all inks, this ink is no exception. They are maintenance free. Don’t expect high sheen from Montblanc inks as they don’t cater to that category. They never damage any of the pens and I would always recommend MB inks for MB pens (especially piston fillers as they are easy to clean).
In terms of Makoba service, they are always good. Packaging is top notch and you really have to spend a considerable time to get past the padding layers which are always around the product.
Recently, I ordered a Kaweco Brass Sport Fountain Pen. Along with it, I also ordered Personalization (Laser Embossed name printing) for an additional cost of Rs. 150. This pen is built to last a lifetime, so these simple gestures make the pen a true souvenir. Soon after placing the order, MAKOBA contacted me regarding the Personalization. They shared a 3D image of the print before it’s actually done, to give an idea. Once I approved it, they did it immediately, and I received the pen, very well packed, within a week’s time. The pen and the engraving are both stunning. The engraving/personalization is not flashy, and it was just the way I wanted.
