Just as the Lamy Studio that I have reviewed just recently, the Faber-Castell Loom is also a minimalist design, very solid writer for advanced users and a great pen for beginners that seek to move one step forward in upgrading their fountain pen game. Both pens fall in about the same price range (depending on where you buy them and with the Loom often still being quite a bit less costly) and I got a couple of requests of people wondering about just the Faber-Castell Loom, which is why I wanted to put forward a timely review of both pens.
Frank of Fontoplumo in the Netherlands was kind enough to support this endeavor with a review pen, which I would like to take the chance to express my appreciation for. Also, I do not want to leave unmentioned that Fontoplumo excels with great service, kind communication, lighting fast delivery, and that Frank does also carry the popular TWSBI fountain pens (such as the new all clear ECO), which are often not too easy to get in Europe at a reasonable price (!). Please do not mistake this for advertising, but just a friendly – and hopefully helpful – hint.
So here’s the video-review – preceded by some quick facts. I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
