Faber-Castell Loom Fountain Pen

by 山一, 2022-08-10

I will try to introduce the Faber-Castell Loom Fountain Pen in English.

Faber-Castell has been in the fine writing instrument business since 1761--an incredible legacy. Many of their pens are very high-end, elegant, and unique--but even their more affordable pens show the design and craftsmanship you'd expect from a company that clearly knows what it's doing.

First, let's watch such a review video, due to Internet policy restrictions in China mainland, you may not be able to access YouTube normally, so I also uploaded the video to Bilibili:

According to the Official Website and related Reference Documents:

Featuring a grip section with fine rings and a subtly curved form, Loom writing implements are varied and fascinating. They are characterized by luminous colors and a puristic elegance. The modern trio, consisting of a twist ballpoint pen, rollerball pen and fountain pen, captivates with a conical shape and the high-contrast interplay of matt and gloss effects. "Metallic" will add a colorful highlight to your college writing pad or desk. "Piano" embodies classical elegance and a fascinating lifestyle: the polished metal barrel sets off the pure white and black, while the varnish adds a trendy gloss to this series.

  • Chrome-plated polished metal barrel
  • Embossed grooves on the grip for a comfortable writing posture
  • Spring-loaded clip, chrome-plated
  • Detachable cap with a metallic finish
  • High-quality stainless steel nib in width EF (extra fine)
  • Equipped with a cartridge/converter system
  • Fitted with a cartridge
  • Cartridges in different colors available separately
  • Converter can be purchased separately

(However, the last five points of the product details are completely no use, each pen can be "introduced" like this)

It is worth that I originally only knew that the pen nib is divided into EF F and M. After checking the official website this time, I found that this is the abbreviation of Extra-Fine Fine and Medium. The Broad is too thick for daily use, so I won't mention it here.

Writing samples from the Faber-Castell Loom, from Extra-fine to Broad.

It is available in Metallic Blue, Metallic Orange, Metallic Silver, Metallic Violet, Piano Black, Piano Lime, Piano Plum, and Piano White. These are all priced at $40 for the metallic finishes and $45 of the piano finishes. They are heavy pens, weighing at 32g. However, they are well-balanced, both posted and unposted. The cap only constitutes 7g out the 32g weight.

This is the first time I have such an idea, so I may draw on the language of many predecessors, below is my real experience with the Loom I got:
