Kind thanks to Joost from Appelboom Pennen, who lent me this pen. If you shop at Appelboom, use the discount code in the banner below (‘friend’) for 10% off your purchase – excluding Montblanc. Today, I wanted to discuss the Faber-Castell Loom, but I also wanted to briefly discuss why I think this is a great starter fountain pen model.
Let’s have a look at the OMAS Paragon in the beautiful Arco Bronze celluloid. I love this pen: it has a very smooth 18k gold nib, and it holds a lot of ink. The fine nib is very smooth and an absolute pleasure to use, and the pen has a great size. The Arco celluloid is hard not to love. I have done a full review of this pen too, if you’re interested.
These Aurora nibs were kindly lent to me by Iguana Sell – thank you! I know the broad nib isn’t in this list, but I have reviewed an Aurora Ipsilon which has a broad nib. There will be a review of a gold broad nib coming up in early January!
