BENU Supreme Collection Nebula Fountain Pen Review

This pen was sent to me by BENU, and the company paid me for an expedited review.  This means that I prioritized this review over other pens, but that I still give it an objective treatment: I was not paid for a positive review.  I think this pen has a lot going for it: it’s a really attractive material.  If you want one, BENU is using a crowdfunding for this pen here.

Measurements
Length (capped): 132.1 mm/5.19″
Length (uncapped): 126.7 mm/4.98″
Length (posted): 172.2 mm/6.77″
Diameter (barrel): 11.6 – 14.8 mm/0.45″ – 0.58″
Diameter (section): 10.6 – 11.0 mm/0.41″ – 0.43″
Weight (all): 25 g
