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 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.
