The Visconti Opera Elements Fire has been in my collection for a very long time. I absolutely adore the finish of this pen: it’s a wonderful pen that just looks beautiful. The smooth and springy 14 karat gold nib is particularly special. This pen is quite a bit smaller than its big brother, the Opera Master, but it is also lighter and more portable.
The Classic Pens LM1 Flame Red is a large pen, but it is smaller than the Classic Pens LB5 made from the same diffusion-bonded acrylic, and it was limited to 500 pens (375 fountain pens and 125 roller balls). I love this pen, and I believe it is a great pen for everyday carry. I have not yet done a full review on the Classic Pens LM1, but I will record one as soon as I have time.
This beautiful pen was sent to me by John, which is clearly an incredible generous gesture. I love this pen: the weight, size, and feeling of it are magnificent and it writes just beautifully too. I have also done a full review of this pen.
This is one of my favourite pens of all time. You can watch the full review here.
Today, we will have a look at what has been my grail pen for years. I have not yet done a full review of this particular pen, but I have done a full review of the Visconti Opera Master Demo, which is the same pen in a different finish.
The first pen in my series of personal pens videos is a special edition of the Parker Duofold, which was launched by P.W. Akkerman in The Hague to commemorate their 100 years of being located in the Passage “mall” (actually, more like a covered shopping street). In this video, I discuss why I love this pen so much; if you want more information, you can watch the full review.
In this new video series, I will give short profiles of the pens that have made it to my personal accumulation (not collection). Contrary to popular belief, I do not own a lot of pens – so the pens that do make it into my personal accumulation are special in at least one way. In this series, I briefly describe the pen, then do a short writing sample. All of these pens have been or will be reviewed at some point in time: in the current videos, I focus on why I like the pen so much.
