In 1982 a new innovative Italian writing instruments factory was established through the partnership of Nino Marino, Ciro Matrone and Mario Muscente, named Delta Srl.

From the beginning Delta has chosen only the highest product standards to enter into the very demanding and competitive international consumer market. Delta has chosen to control every aspect of the pen manufacturing process in its southern Italian facility under the watchful eyes of its skilled artisans. Over the last 23 years, Delta has finely tuned its processes raising the quality of the final product to near perfection. This level of attention to detail establishes Delta in a category of its own.

Delta Sale

I don't regularly stock the large line of Delta pens, and consequently can offer a special pre-order sale price of 20%-off of the suggested retail price for the entire Delta collection.  I order approximately once per week (please specify nib size preferred, if ordering fountain pens), at: orders@hisnibs.com. For all of Delta's offerings,  please take a look at YAFA's website (they are the importer of Delta pens for the United States) here, and just let me know what you'd like (including Delta's outstanding limited edition pens!).

IMPORTANT SERVICE NOTE: Every nib that ships from His Nibs is closely examined under high magnification and tuned or adjusted if needed. About 85% of modern nibs need some adjustment out-of-the-box from the manufacturer for an optimal writing experience. Most commonly, the tines of the nib are misaligned -- which would cause scratchiness at the minimum; the slit between the tines is partially or fully closed -- which would starve the nib of ink and at best cause skipping; or the slit between the tines is too wide -- which will either again cause skipping, or conversely, flooding. There are other factors  -- such as separation of the nib from the feed -- that are inspected and repaired before any pen leaves the Palace.

The only 100% guarantee of course comes when the pen is actually filled with ink and written with for the first time, but our pre-shipping inspections and tunings have eliminated 99.99999 (my finger is getting tired) of the frustrations that a customer experiences when first using a new fountain pen. Although this can be time-consuming on occasion, it affords our customers a much more pleasant experience when receiving a fountain pen from His Nibs -- and saves us the frustration of dealing with returns!

Credit cards, for the quickest fulfillment of your order, are accepted through PayPal, a secure site allowing you to use your credit card without us even seeing the information. If you'd like to make use of this credit card service, please let us know when you email your order and address, and we'll email you the appropriate Request for Payment, and instructions for the simple payment procedure (you don't need to join PayPal to use it).

Warranties and returns

If an item proves to be defective, in most cases the manufacturer's warranty will apply. However, please email us first so that we can determine the easiest way to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. In the case of fountain pens -- which are a bit more individualistic than other writing instruments -- what may at first appear to be a defect (hard starting or poor flow for example), can in almost all cases be resolved with a few simple 'tweaks' to the nib, which we'll be happy to guide you through or perhaps suggest returning to us for adjustment.

Should you wish to return a non-defective item within 3 days of receipt because it doesn't suit you for some reason, again please email us and we'll arrange an exchange, credit or refund (minus any shipping/insurance charges), if the item is returned in an 'as new' condition. If you've dipped a fountain pen to try its writing characteristics, kindly clean off any ink residue prior to shipping -- to save us both a nasty surprise .

We want you to be happy with your purchase from HisNibs.com and hope to have you join the ranks of our many long-term, repeat customers!
