Hi Everyone,

I recently made my first Hermes purchase, the Grand Modele Orange Calfskin Agenda. It's fantastic!! Just Wondering If Hermes Do A Pen To Go With The Agenda & If So How Much Is It?

Thanks,
Jordan

Yes, H does pens to go with their agendas but I really haven't heard any good reviews - they are quite expensive and I've heard that the design could be better.

There is a small sterling silver pen that fits the small pen loops (the ones that on some agendas close the agenda, and on others, are inside). They go for about $190, I believe. Be aware tht the flared top of the pen will mark the inside of your agenda if it closes firmly (with a zipper, or against other things in your bag or briefcase).

If you can get a cheaper, thin ballpoint I would personally go with that.

Last time I called to get a pen for my PM (I have a pencil) Vegas quoted me $390.

they are a 1/16th of an inch wide, 3" long. Same as you would use to keep your golf score. In my (older) agenda, they are essential for keeping it closed.

I believe they've made pretty pens in the past - but not really much in the last few decades.

I have one of those pricey slender sterling H. pens, jtroops, and I've had nothing but trouble with it. After about two uses, it wouldn't retract any longer, and I gave up on it and returned it to Hermes - the replacement didn't work any better.

I'd take mistikat's sage advice and look for a less expensive pen that will fit and will actually work. (I found one at Sam Flax Art Supply. It came with a small agenda, which I had to buy, but I think the total cost was about $10, and I now have a pen that actually works, fits in the loops and won't damage the agenda or anything else in my bag, including the bag!)

I have the sterling silver pencil. I personally like it a lot and have had no problems. The SA recommended it to me instead of the pen since the pen can mark and in case there is an ink accident your agenda isn't ruined.

i have the pencil too, no problems with it so far (after three years or so)! no idea how much it was since it was a gift, i don't think i would have bought it for myself but it's a nice thing to have.

The sterling pens are very cute. I've never seen them before...

I use a thin pen I "permanently borrowed" from a Mandrin Oriental I stayed at. It's one of their promo pens so I doubt it cost much but the size is perfect.

I also have the silver pencil and I never had any problems with it. It's a dupont pencil, I assume their pens are the same. Personally I would never carry pens after having one exploding and ruining my jacket one hot summer some years ago.

I purchased a wonderful little pen for 6.99 that fits into the loops. I will go and find the name. I purchased on eBay. I found it doing a search to see what other folks were using since I did not want to spend $$$ for the Hermes pen.

It is called the Zebra T-3 mini and it comes in a pen or a pencil. I bought it from Winningpen who was a wonderful seller. He has them for sale right now on Ebay. My pen came with 2 ink refills. Only has blue ink.
