Value Added Tax (VAT) is charged on most goods and services within the European Union. In the UK the rate is 20%. The Onoto Pen Company Limited is required by law to collect VAT on orders dispatched to most countries within the European Union. Orders sent to addresses anywhere else in the world will not be subject to VAT but they may be subject to local taxes and customs charges which are the recipients’ responsibility. For customers with a delivery address within the EU, VAT charges on your purchases will be itemised on your invoice.


All modern Onoto pens are covered with a lifetime guarantee subject to the following conditions:

  • The writing instrument guarantee covers faulty workmanship and faulty materials only and does not cover normal wear and tear;
  • The warranty card must be returned to Onoto for registration so as to validate the lifetime guarantee;
  • The warranty is not transferable and so applied to the first registered owner;
  • The purchaser is responsible for the cost of returning the item to the Onoto workshop;
  • Any modification to the writing instrument from its original specification will void the warranty;
  • This warranty does not affect your statutory rights.

From April 2017, all external metal components used in acrylic pens were upgraded to full sterling silver. However, there are a small number of stock pens made in the transitional period prior to April use silver plated base metal clips. If this is of concern, please contact the company for further information.
