    Default Great Experience with Rick Krantz

    I have dealt with Rick in the past, and again recently and every time he is a wonderful guy to work with. He worked wit me to both find the P51 I wanted as well as getting me guts for another P51 to fit in a custom body/hood I had from another outlet.

    Rick is a great guy and a fantastic dealer to work with.

    For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Indeed. He not only has the goods, he deals with everyone fairly, and he has a very good spirit with regard to the entire pen and community experience. Good to have people like Rick around!

    I purchased a MB 146 and a Pelikan M1000 from Rick. He was and is wonderful and having met him in DC was very helpful for me.

    thank you for all of the positive feedback everyone. I certainly am thankful to hear happy remarks. I try to simply offer pens back to the community at reasonable prices, and include a warranty with what I offer. With postal problems and a most recent issue with the new silicone ink sacs, I certainly appreciate the understanding that seems to come with the many that have patronized my sales over the course of the last few years. I do this as a hobby, and this alone is what makes it most worthwhile.

    thanks again everyone

    thanks again everyone
    I too got a great pen a year or so ago, a small Sheaffer.

    I love that you go and get pens that need a little TLC and rehab work. Instead of these pens getting tossed we have someone who gets these great gems back in working order and back into use!

    Best of all Rick puts them out there at prices for everyone.

    Ill say right here to Rick, Thank you for offering tray after tray of pens that any level of collector or student or newbie can enjoy. Your hard work and expertise is greatly appreciated.

    Boom with a bullet. Rick is a great asset to the pen world.

    I bought my first Parker 45 from Rick. It was a beautiful example, very clean and polished, and it writes like a dream. It was a very reasonable price. I wanted to try a vintage pen, and this was my first. Because of my good experience with him, I have just ordered an Esterbrook J from him (my first Esterbrook, too). I am looking forward to receiving it.

    Fantastic individual. I can say unreservedly, Mr Krantz is among the best dealers I've dealt with.

    Even to them I would hesitate paying without paypal, but if Charles is the seller, I'll pay with square no worries.

    No one else has mentioned it, so I will. Rick is also very tall.

    He's a great guy, but why does being tall matter?

    I like to look people in the eye. Being 6-4 I reluctantly have to look down on some people. Ask my wife. Rick is a good seller.
