My Personal Pens: Visconti Opera Elements Fire

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.

My Personal Pens: Classic Pens LM1 Flame Red

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.

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.

Length (capped): 132.1 mm/5.19″
Length (uncapped): 126.7 mm/4.98″
Length (posted): 172.2 mm/6.77″
