Product rated : Kaweco Sport Coral Guilloche Gold fountain pen - Fontoplumo Exclusive

Good but

1. colour is less bright than in picture
2. colour is very beautiful still, especially with the gold trims.
3. The Guilloche pattern is fitting the colour and also soft and makes the otherwise bland Kaweco Sport more sophisticated.
4. The Guilloche pattern also helps with the very common problem of the Kaweco Sport: scratches, especially near the point where the cap posts.
5. The "CORAL by fontoplumo" branding is too bold and really is redundant and a nuisance.
6. The price is slightly too high.

Product rated : Lamy Notebook A5 hardcover turmaline with brushed metal look cover

Beautiful but not very functional with fountain pen ink

The Ink is being absorbed into the paper right after putting the nib onto the paper, which results with sever feathering and no sheen even with "sheen monsters". This happens even when using relatively "better" ink. The performance is better than a thin paper like newspaper's paper (but really not justifies the price).
This may be different with another Lamy notebook as I see more positive reviews online.
The grid is not as elegant as other ruling methods like regular grid notebooks, lines, dots or the best: the grid of Japanese notebooks.
Other than that, the design is beautiful, the coarse feel of the cover is really nice and retro-like and the turquoise colour is pleasant.

beautifully designed

usually M200 is felt very plastic-y but this model is beautiful. the glitter is not too strong yet strong enough to be interesting and give an unusual deep look to the otherwise simple unattractive plastic

TWSBI Diamond 580 AL Medium penpunt

Deze Taiwanese vulpen kan zich moeiteloos meten met dure concurrenten. Als je op een bescheiden budget zit of je hebt gewoon niet veel geld over voor pennen, dan is dit een uitstekende koop.

Very nice red, not pink, not blood colored, just a simple red color ink. Recommend.

Product rated : Santini Libra Jungle resin fountain pen

Beautiful pen with a good value proposition

Nowadays when there are an increasing number of pens having steel nibs over €200, Santini Libra has a solid value proposition. It's an oversized resin pen, comes with a gold nib and is a piston filler with a ratchet mechanism.

The pen looks very pretty and the marbled resin has a nice depth to it. It's light and comfortable to write with. Green is somewhat a less common colour and I think Santini's resin looks interesting, they nailed it with the Jungle variant. The section has a rounded small step down from the barrel. The threads are not sharp at all. The section tapers down to 11 mm at its narrowest and flairs out at the nib. It provides a comfortable and secure grip whether you prefer to hold the pen closer to the nib or further back. It's an oversize pen, has a similar length as a Leonardo Momento Zero Grande so it's big enough to be used unposted. Nevertheless the pen can be posted. The cap is light and posts fairly deep so it does not back-weight the pen.

The nib is in-house made, gold and stamped with the Santini logo. Don't get me wrong, a laser engraved steel nib sourced from Bock or Jowo can have an amazing performance. However one must give credit to Santini for their excellent - and pretty - in-house gold nib. The size of the nib is around the standard #6, a bit smaller. The nib is smooth, stiff and has some pleasant feedback. Mine runs a bit dry but not overly dry, I'm comfortable with it. If someone needs a gusher I'm sure the friction fitted nib can be adjusted.

All in all Santini is commendable for making a pretty solid pen packed with nice features for a reasonable price.

Great pen! Great customer service!

The Leonardo Momento Zero Grande was a great choice. The pen is a great writer and the size is just perfect for me. And the blue hawaii model is just beautiful! The piston filling system was a great upgrade. 5* also to fontoplumo service. The pen took a while to arrive due to the covid-19 situation, but Frank constantly kept me up to date of the progress. Totally recommend!

Gorgeous pen!!

Initially when I opened the box, I am quite surprised that the color of the pen is more teal than light blue as shown above. However. the swirling pattern of resin is awesome and the build quality is beyond my expectation for the pen at this price. The nib is well tuned. (I also asked for nib tuning service therefore it should be working right out of the box.)

Excellent writer

This pen is gorgeous with juicy smooth nib. The body is well-made and decorated. To summarize, pricey but worth it if you can afford.

Perfect Pen

As always with Sailor ProGear pens, this one has perfect fit and finish and and a wonderful nib. When posted this smaller pen becomes full size and is easy to use for longer writing sessions. This particular LE is so beautiful. The sparkles highlight the sky blue resin.

Fountain pen "Diplomat"

I am satisfied with my pen, it has a nice design, it is appropiate for my hand, it has the good size for my great hand, it has a considerable weight, wich keeps my movement under control and the ink flows easily.

With friendly regards, Hans van Pelt !

What a nice surprise

It’s not like me to spontaneously buy a pen, I have too many as it is, and it’s not a cheap pen. But I took a fancy to it. It has a Jowo nib I think and a very simple barrel. The cap could be used as a paperweight it is soooo heavy. It looks laser cut with a pleasant design. Without the cap the pen is well balanced and it is a very easy pen to use. With ink in the converter it looks great and writes very well indeed. It can be used as an eye dropper and I had intended to do that but it does look great with the converter I may not do it. Really well made pen from good materials. Mid weight feel, suit most writers.

Why have I not bought this ink before

I love this ink. Ok it’s black so hardly exciting. But it is quite a wet black. It gives a nice solid consistent line even in the few dry pens I have tried. Aurora Black deserves its reputation. It’s like Namiki black but with more flow/wetting.

They are nibs

I think these are Bock. It comes with the feed. There’s little to say other than mine worked well. I bought a replacement because my previous Leonardo nib was never great and although I can work on nibs I could never seem to get a good performance out of it.
