About us

The izods philosophy is incredibly simple – we supply the finest writing instruments, all of which have been meticulously examined prior to sale and represent the best possible examples available.


izods is based in the U.K. and owned by Roy van den Brink-Budgen, who has a huge passion for all things ink related and is a fountain (no pun intended) of knowledge when it comes to prestigious writing instruments, especially Montblanc. Our specialism is fountain pens, but we also offer carefully selected rollerballs, ball points and mechanical pencils.


With contacts in more than 30 countries we’re able to source virtually any Montblanc (as well as most other makes) fountain pen that you require and we’re always delighted to talk with those interested in acquiring a fine writing instrument.


We know that buying fountain pens can all seem a bit confusing, with hundreds of model numbers, nib sizes and variations available – but instead of bombarding you with jargon, we’ll let you know the options in a really simple way and make our best recommendations based on your requirements. At the end of the day, we believe that purchasing such fine pens should be a truly enjoyable experience, rather than a confusing process where you’re not sure what you’ve ended up with.
