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.
