    Default Bespoke pens

    Good afternoon,
    Can anybody help direct me to the best place to sell a bespoke pen? I've looked at a few sites but I don't see allot of interest in them

    Classifieds section here and/or at other pen forums?

    Sir,
    I was only asking as I don't see many listed on here, so I assumed there was not much interest.

    There’s a saying about “assume.”

    List your used bespoke pen here with a fair and honest description for a realistic price, add photos, and see what happens. Be sure to include all terms, your location and means of contact. Good luck!

    Bespoke pens? Do you take measurements of my hand, study my writing angle and ergonomics and all that?
    What makes a pen bespoke? This is an honest inquiry with no harm intended. I am just unfamiliar with the phrase, is all.

    Generally it refers to pens made to order. You enage with the maker around the style, material, furniture and sometimes the nib. You go into a queue of varying lengths (expect around a year for popular makers) and at the end of it all you get a pen that is unique.
    Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

    Bespoke pens by their very nature aren't common. So I wouldn't expect many to be up for sale at one time also people go to quite some effort to buy them in the first place waiting months for them to be made so I imagine they are rarely impulse purchase.

    With anything that's made for someone's specific tastes there is always a premium someone has to pay. I don't know if your tastes are common enough for others the rationalise the premium? Or if the maker is renowned enough for most of there pens to be sort after.

    As others have said put them up if you want to sell them but bare in mind the above so it may take longer to find a new home them.
