Baldeep and Mano have an excellent knowledge of their products. They make purchasing a pen an enjoyable experience and want to be sure that you are happy with the pen before you purchase it encouraging you to "try it out" so that pen and nib are perfect for you.
Their selection of inks is impressive as they carry Private Reserve, Watermans, Parkers, Noodlers, Sailor, Delta, Sheaffer, Caren D'Ache, Pelikan, Visconti, Lamy and Faber-Castell to name a few.
The selection of paper goods is no less impressive with an great selection of Amalfi, Cliarfontaine, Rhodia, White Lines etc..
Members of the London Pen Club frequent this store regularly and if you are lucky a cup of tea might well accompany your visit which makes it more like visiting friends than being in a store.
Peel Pen Shop in London was the breeding grounds for the London Pen Club. 'Once upon a time' there were 3 - 5 pen collectors who would show up at Peel Pen as it opened on Saturday mornings and sit around a very small table and ... well talk pens, play with ones discovered recently or evaluate the newest to arrive in the store. Eventually the store closed and those individuals were determined to carry on that love of Saturday morns and writing instruments. They formed a club and soon ... they came (new members).
If for no other reason Peel Pen has be considered one of the 'noted" pen shops in Canada ... fostering not only a love of pens but providing space and time for early members of this club.
John Culmer still operates Peel Pen on the internet selling pens and providing a repair service.
"Today, Peel Pen Shop (London) Inc .is the only remaining full time, independent repair and restoration facility in Canada servicing customers throughout North America". John is an experienced and excellent at pen repairs.
Sleuth and Statesman is a pen shop that appeals to collectors who appreciate fine pens and service that matches. Fine leathers are there to be appreciated, a cigar shop that has the best that exist and owners that enjoy them and pens. The very best from dealers ranging the gamut from Lamy to the Viscontis, Omas, Deltas and so many more. However the thing that makes this shop worth the visit is the service provided by the owners Murtaza and Akil both of whom have had a long love affair with fine writing and fine pens. Murtaza has a passion for broad oblique nibs and has been passionate about them for decades almost convincing me to purchase one after seeing him write with it. He was also an early funder and promoter of pens for kids in the schools and saw to it that some schools were the receipients of his program.
Should you be in Toronto, make sure to visit Sleuth and Statesman.
Laywines in the Yorkville shopping district of Toronto, stocks a wide range of writing instruments, fountain pen inks, and hard to find pen and roller ball refills. They also have a large selection of organizers and papers.
Peter Laywine is a most engaging and helpful authority on fountain pens and he willingly spends time with pen enthusiasts to make sure they have the pen they want with the nib they need encouraging one to try out different nibs to find the one that most suits them. Dont miss visiting Laywines when you are in Toronto.
The Montblanc Boutiquewas opened in the late 1990's by Wayne Kingsland. He and his staff offer great survice, in the Montblanc tradition and are very proud of their product.. And they treat their stock with care! The store offers the complete range of Montblanc products and are more than willing to assist customers in finding and trying the pen and nib that will give them the greatest pleasure.
The M.B. store is only about 2 blocks from Laywines so visiting these two great pen stores can be done with little effort.

Papeterie Nota Bene has a number of shops in Quebec and for those who write with fountain pens and love great paper it is well worth a visit. Here is a comment by one loyal fan:"Upon moving to Montreal, one of my first orders of business was to scout out stationery and art supply stores. As fortune would have it, our temporary housing was right down the street from this phenomenal store. They boast high quality paper products and fine writing implements, as well as excellent customer service and a cozy atmosphere where you are free to browse to your hearts content. Nota Bene, you have a new regular customer."
