    He has always been prompt, fair and polite. I highly recommend him and have been collecting for over 30 years.

    I have had a repairer break a pen, lose a pen, switch parts on a pen, do a bad repair, misrepresent a pen or just plain ripped me off, including current posters, none of them held up their hands and said sorry. One repairer, who has the best reputation, took a year to do the simplest repair.

    We can all name names, life is too short.
    I don't know about "saying sorry," but if you were not properly compensated after what you have described here, or if the mistake was not rectified one way or another, then you have been taken advantage of. Customers deserve better, even according to law.

    We are talking about two different aspects, I would not name the persons involved without allowing them to explain themselves first of all, publicly.

    Of course they do, some seem to reply on the idea that it is my word against theirs, so they become incalcitrant.

    Even the most prestigious of repairers/sellers, IMO.

    Not that I would name them however, thats just me.
