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.
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:
