Magna Carta Oxford Review
Permalink Closed


I received a unique gift from a friend. Imagine my excitement when I opened the package to find a new fountain pen! I understand that Magna Carta writing instruments will soon be introduced in the US.  
In person this pen is gorgeous in appearance, yet not ostentatious. It is fitted with an ideal size 6mm, Bock steel nib. Bock is the industry leader, and the nib manufacturer of choice for the prestigious brands around the world. Owning hundreds of fountain pens as a collector for many years, I find that the nib and feeder performance are impeccable, as is the threading operation. Ink flow began immediately when pen was put to paper--smooth, right out of the box and continuing, and void of skipping. Many of us are not fond of metal (grip) sections, but the Magna Carta is very comfortable in the hand. This fountain pen is pure writing pleasure.
The pen's converter is threaded and thus 'locks' securely in place. And that feature/benefit reminds me about this fountain pen in general--there is obvious attention to detail in its production. I plan to learn more about other pens made by this Company. I hope that the pens they manufacture and make available to us are affordable and enjoyable and supported by outstanding customer service.
When time permits, will upload a writing sample.
Photos attached: capped, uncapped, and sitting on its presentation box.
