After owning Berkshire Pen’s handcrafted pens, I have become a pen enthusiast.  Not only are they beautiful and of high quality, they are unique and unlike pens I’ve seen in stores.  Even better, if you don’t see the exact pen that you want, you can custom order and create virtually any design – the possibilities are endless!  I look forward to giving these as gifts for any occasion as they’re certain to be a hit with the recipient!

As a youngster, I remember that my Dad always carried a fountain pen.  This must have been a strong impression as I now collect fountain pens.  I recently received a fountain pen created by Dan Burkhard of Berkshire Pens as a gift and it has quickly become a favorite.  This new pen competes with good pedigree – several Mont Blanc, Waterman, restored antique Parker, Sheaffer’s and Esterbrook fountain pens have all been put back into the display case.  My new pen not only writes beautifully, but also makes a unique statement every time I remove this piece of hand-crafted art from my shirt pocket.

After using one of Berkshire Pen’s beautiful fountain pens myself, I couldn’t wait to buy one for my older brother’s 85th birthday.  He was a music copyist for many years and was familiar with some outstanding pens.  You can imagine my pleasure when he expressed delight at the look and feel of the pen I bought for him.  But it only got better:He swears by this pen, uses it all time and feels it’s the best looking and best writing pen he’s ever used.

I know that the pen I received from your son and daughter-in-law was a gift from them, but I wanted you to know that it's a beautiful work of art, very well engineered, and it will always make me think of your family and the Berkshires.

Thank you so very much for the beautiful pen you created for my brother!  You did such a lovely job...it really is a work of art!  He is thrilled with it and is looking forward to crafting beautiful songs with it! Thanks again for your amazing skills and your expert advice.  I am so happy that I found you!  I will pass on your information to others whom I know would be interested in your art!
