I own two Momento Zeros, and this is my first MZ Grande. In every way, it represents a major improvement. The nib and ebonite feed arrived well tuned. The piston mechanism is simple to operate. The MZG is a bigger pen than the MZ: slightly heavier, girthier, and taller. The section width is comfortable albeit at the limit of what works for me. Finally, the beautiful Primary Manipulation body makes me smile every time I pick up the pen. A perfect collaboration by Salvatore and Jonathan!
The Lamy Pico is a pocket pen with an awesome design. It is 8,5 cm long and look like a small tube with rounded edges at both ends. Just a small push at the top and a penpoint comes out and the pen extends at the same time to a regular size pen that writes very well. Push again and the pen contracts. Wonderful. The pen uses Lamy M 22 ballpoint refills. Very happy with my purchase and with Fontoplumo’s service.
This is my second Leonardo, first Momento Zero Grande. The orange-amber patterns really need to be seen live when rotating the pen in hand. The same applies to other Leonardo resins as well, btw.
The MZ Grande is big, but just enough so. It has heft, but it is not too heavy.
The cursive italic regrind from Fontoplumo works great. Just the type of dry'ish writer I like. Recommended.
The pen is indeed very well made and wonderful to behold. The "one-sided" pictures fail to do justice to the colourful patterns on the writing instrument. The threads on the cap and pen body look reliable and robust. The concept of the pen is similar to the Kaweco Liliput, but I prefer the more substantial diameter of the Pocket Six. If it were a tad heavier... but, I am very happy with it as it is!
This is my third Lamy pen after the Safari and Logo, and I am really pleased with it. The colour turned out to be a little lighter in person compared to the pictures on my computer but I love it! The pen looks very classy! The grip is wider than the Lamy Logo but thinner than the Studio. Without posting the cap the weight is really perfect for me. If you post the cap, the pen gets much heavier and I'm also a bit concerned about the lacquer being damaged by posting. I usually don't like posting my pens so that's not really an issue for me. The price on Fontoplumo was much cheaper than the other online shops I looked into. Since it's a limited edition, I am really glad I could get mine on time!
The Lamy Studio Twin Pen is the best of the multifunction writing instruments available. I HaBe used this Studio model for several years and they never fail. Excellent product. I do wish it was offered in the Titanium finish. I am a very pleased customer and it is a pleasure to shop Fontoplumo
I was fortunate to acquire the last of Fontoplumo’s LE Leonardo Opera Zero Grande in Yellow. The pen is a big pen, but amazingly light when in the hand - whenever you post it or not. The Leonardo Grande is a very well made pen that has the almost perfect balance in the hand. It is a pistonfiller that operates without issues. The Yellow raisin is a plain, banana colour yellow, without frills or depth. The golden “pebbles” accentuate the plainness of the yellow and it is exactly this plainess what makes this Leonardo Yellow pen so pleasant for the eyes. The nib is a big, steel nib. Mine is a stub 1.1. that wrote smooth out of the box, but I need a little practice with it to find its sweet spot.
In short very happy with this big, yellow pen and Fontoplumo’s service was top.
I purchased a TWSBI VAC700R together with a nib customization here a few months ago and opted for a broad nib that was then reground to a cursive italic. I must say the pen writes like an absolute dream, inkflow is consistent regardless of what ink i use (tried montblac homage to hadrian, Akkerman Zuiderpark blauw groen, Herbin Lie de thé), the pen feels incredibly smooth, there is no scratchyness to think off and the line variation achieved with the grind is astounding. For whoever is considering a cursive italic i can highly recommend it.
It is always good to order and receive a Pelikan pen as you know it will be quality and write well. The M200 is a smaller pen but it is affordable and an excellent entry into the Pelikan pen world. There have been reviewers speaking of the lovely pastel color, the white cap top and the attention to detail with the white piston instead of black. The only mar on the landscape might be that the ink window shows even a light green ink rather darker against the beautiful barrel color but that cannot be helped if you want to know of you ink level. Fontoplumo has good prices and I am very pleased with the pen and the service.
The Pocket Six is a very well made pen. It fits a jeans pocket and the hand very well. The colours are very cool and, all round, it’s a pleasure to use. I missed the first batch and asked Frank to let me know if there would be more. He duly did. Shipping to Germany was quick and without hassle. Always a pleasure to order from Fontoplumo.
La couverture est très agréable et la finition est parfaite. Le papier se comporte très bien avec différentes plumes et différentes encres. L'encre ne diffuse pas, ne traverse pas. Le papier n'est ni très lisse ni rugueux, ce qui fait que l'écriture est bien maîtrisée. Produit de grande qualité.
Surprisingly small when closed and super confortable full size pen when open. Nib is good as expected from Jowo, rigid but smooth with a slight tooth. Execution is top notch. The orange is slightly paler than expected from photographs, maybe because of the matte stonewashed finish. Anyway a very good overall pen both for pocket and desk use.
My first Leonardo has been such a delightful experience. I find the Grande a find example of putting many ideas together for an almost perfect pen. The aqua color is gorgeous, the steel nib an excellent writer and the filling system unique and so far very successful. The grip section is well formed and easy to use, and even though I do not usually post you can without too much over balance. The quality for the price is definitely there and if one cannot afford a gold nib this steel one is a very good choice. I like the Leonardo ink and since I have never it that before I was pleasantly surprised at its flow and performance Fontoplumo has handled the sale so well with excellent customer service and help. Thanks Frank.
