Updated 17th July 2016

Fook Hing

Address: Blk 231, Bain Street #01-23, Bras Basah Complex
It is one of the best place to browse and buy pens and inks. They have a facebook page that you can follow to keep up with their new arrivals. They carry a wide variety of pens and inks. Call them up to find out on the status of their stock and price before heading down. You can get them to hold the pen or ink for you as well. Otherwise, go down and try the pens to your heart's content.

Aesthetic Bay

Address: No. 2 Orchard Turn, #04-14, ION Orchard
If you have money to spare after going to so many other shops, do drop by Aesthetic Bay to oogle at their pens. This isn't the friendliest place to shop but there is no harm just looking. They are also the only shop that carries Noodler's Singapore series of inks.

Straits Pen

Address: Block 212 Hougang Street 21 #04-349 (Only by appointment)
Go to Straits Pen to get your TWSBI pens locally. Mr. Sunny Koh also carries some China pens, this is subjected to availability. He also is able to do nib grinding for a fee. Do note that they are only able to do transaction via cash only.

Overjoyed

Address: 89 Short Street B1-08
Overjoyed a wide variety of art supplies. However for fountain pen lovers' purposes all you need to know is they carry Rhodia paper and J Herbin inks. There are also calligraphy nib sets available. They also have disposable pipettes but it is a little pricey to get it there.

Muji

Address: Many outlets all over Singapore
Muji carries two different style of fountain pens, one pocket version, one full length. Along with pens, they carry some fountain pen friendly notebooks in various styles of size as well. Look for the notebooks labelled "Made in Japan", those are the notebooks you are looking for.

Cityluxe

Address: Many outlets all over Singapore
Cityluxe carries Kaweco and Montverde pens, refills and cartridges. As far as I know, they only carry the M nib for Kaweco pens. I am not so sure about Montverde pens though.

NBC Stationary

Address: Many outlets all over Singapore
The main thing to note about NBC Stationary is not every outlet carries fountain pens and inks. Please call to check if they carry the item you are interested before heading down. The best bet is the outlet at Ngee Ann City Kinokuniya. They carry a wide variety of brands namely Lamy, Parker, Cross, Pilot and Kaweco. They also have Midori notebooks as well as glass pens.

Address: Many outlets all over Singapore
Popular Bookstores carries a very small variety of Parker, Faber Castell, Platinum Preppy and Sheafer fountain pens as well as limited colours for Parker and Pelikan 4001 series inks. Likewise, not every outlet carries fountain pens and inks. Your best bet would be the outlet at Bras Basah Complex. It is one of the largest outlet and it is very near Fook Hing.

Art Friends

Address: Outlets all over Singapore
Art Friends is a supply shop for all types of art supplies, similar to Overjoyed but done on a larger scale. They carry a number of different brands for markers and pens. The thing of interest at Art Friends is the calligraphy set and nibs that they carry. Some of the large branches do carry Pelikan fountain pens as well.

Lin Kong Watch & Pen

Address: 111 North Bridge Road, #03-53 Peninsula Plaza
I have personally been to the shop but based on their website they seemed to carry quite a wide variety of pens.

Mustafa Centre

Address: 145 Syed Alwi Road Level 1 and Level 4
I have also not been down to Mustafa Centre before however as far as I know and hear about shopping in Mustafa Centre is an experience in and of itself. They sell Hero pens as well as Lamy pens. It would be best to know what you are looking for before heading down.

Elephant and Coral

Address: 333A Orchard Road #03-03 Mandarin Gallery
I have not been to the shop. However based on where it is located, this is a high end shop that carries a wide variety of brands.

Tokyu Hands

Address: 3 Gateway Drive #01-36/37 Westgate
and Orchard Central 181 Orchard Rd #B1-05
They carry Pilot Iroshizuku, Lamy, Kaweco, Sailor bottled inks as well as Sailor and Pilot ink cartridges. They also have Retro 51 rollerball pens, Pilot, Sailor and Platinum fountain pens. The best thing is that have tons of Japanese notebooks from Apica, Life, Midori as well as Campus. If you are anywhere in the area, this is a good place to check out.

Campo Marzio

Address: 2 Orchard Turn, ION Orchard, #B3-11
They have a number of fountain pens and rollerball pens. They also carry standard international cartridges and wax seals.

TIMES TRAVEL

Address: Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3, Departure/Transit Lounge South, #02-07
They carry various brands of fountain pens such as Pilot, Waterman and the like. Staffed by a friendly staff whom I have chatted with once.

TIMES RELAY

Address: Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2, #026-055-01/02, Departure/Transit Lounge North (Airside)
I have not visited this shop before so I am not sure what brand they sell other than Pilot. However if the Termninal 3 shop is any indication, they should be selling the same brands.

Weiting Postal and Stationary

Address: Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Boulevard, #02-18
I was pleasantly surprised to find a stationary and fountain pen store at Millenia Walk while window shopping. They carry Faber Castel, Staedtler, Sheaffer and Cross pens. Their range of fountain pens are rather limited and I am not sure how knowledgeable the staff are on fountain pens.

Pens Avenue

Address: Wisma Atria, 435 Orchard Road #03-01C
A brand new luxury pen store has arrived in Singapore. They carry Montegrappa, Lamy, Kaweco, Namiki, Cross and Sheaffer. They don’t have any exclusive inks to my knowledge. Their range of fountain pens are rather limited and I am not sure how knowledgeable the staff are on fountain pens.
