With manufacturing based on the Huangpu River of Shangai, China, the Shanghai G. Crown Fountain Pen Co., Ltd. has introduced its new line of pens, called DUKE. Registered in Europe as German Duke Lux Pen GmbH., and drawing heavily upon its R&D sub-branch located in Germany, the DUKE brand uses advanced German and European pen-making technology, and employs it to bring traditional Chinese motifs to mid-range and high-end pens and limited editions.
Made from some of the finest materials, such as Italian celluloid or resin, gold, silver and Chinese lacquer, the range of model designs is impressive -- and many only produced in very limited quantity. Fountain pen nibs range from gold-plated steel on introductory models, to 14K and 18K gold on the higher-end and limited edition pens.
So, please take a look at the ever-growing list of DUKE and URANUS (another brand from the same parent company). Check back often, as our inventory of imported models continues to grow!

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!
