Product Description
Handcrafted in Italy’s Aosta Valley, the Grifos Oikos fountain pen takes its name from the ancient Greek word for household. The fundamental unit of Greek society, “oikos” can be used to describe a family, the property where it lives, and the concept of home—and references to it can be found throughout Homer’s Odyssey Read More

The company website is not accessible, which does not inspire confidence.

Ok, it is great to hear that you stand by your product and do provide means to contact you. I still don't appreciate the website situation, though. Let's agree to disagree on that count. That said, I'll amend my messages about recommending not to deal with you. That does seem too harsh and not a fair reaction on my part after talking to you more and understanding your situation better. I didn't know you're a small family business. The fact that you are does help me to appreciate your struggle with fending off hackers without resorting to IP range blocking. I do however suggest you to look into it and maybe hire a specialist to help out. There are many not very expensive ways to achieve hacking protection without blocking countries. And any IT specialist in this specific area worth their salt can help you do that. Good luck!

Thank you. I appreciate when people start to understand each other. Thank you as well for your willind to update previous post. In truth our web site is old and in conseguence easy to be attacked by hackers. We are working on new web site with updated features that will not protect us 100% but at least will be more difficult to be under attack. It is pretty ready and I forecast that the new one site will be online within a month more or less. When it will be online the ip block will be removed till when (hooping no) hackers will hit again. Regards

Just got my beautiful pen yesterday but the tines were not lined up so I tried to fix it but couldn't. Is there some way to get the nib repaired?

How do we know the number of people joining the drop? Would like to know if this will succeed or not... Nice looking pen and I'd love to be able to get it.

Just received mine and, while I am generally very, very pleased with the pen and how it writes, the cap is of very poor quality. The cap has a number of deepish scratches that are obvious visibly and to the touch. Also the silvery bands are very poorly finished with an uneven sawtooth pattern being occasionally visible with the black underneath showing through. It feels like the cap was made by a totally different company. Because the pen itself is quite beautiful. It is very well finished with the black resin surfaces being flawless (unlike cap) and the silver etching being brilliantly done. The (fine) nib is crisp and smooth and writes perfectly out of the box. The only part of the main pen that would suggest it was built to a price is the screw threads - it takes a few attempts to align them when closing the pen after a refill. Still, that's no big deal. For the price, a brilliant pen that looks quite unique. Just get a new supplier for the caps, Grifos.

Just got mine, my only complaint is that the cap, while it has an awesome snap to post, wobbles on the barrel, which kind of makes it awful to post. Also, the cap really should be resin and not metal if it was meant to post. That said, it's plenty long enough to use unposted, and the nib itself is a stunningly smooth broad (it's a little broader than a B nib, but not that much, though it's wet and smooth and well tuned)
I'd love to see this exact pen listed again with the cap in sterling silver too with only the black band in the middle. I'd absolutely buy one.
