This Faber-Castell Ondoro here is not the first Faber-Castell fountain pen that I have reviewed. I have already covered the eMotion and the Loom in other videos. Ever since I first got my hands on a Faber-Castell fountain pen, I have really been amazed by three things: their design (that does appeal to me a lot), their great price vs. what you get-ratio, and most importantly the writing performance – if you ask me, Faber-Castell does make some of the best steel nibs out there. While this shall suffice as a disclosure of my obvious Faber-Castell bias, it was natural to me to do a review of the iconic looking Ondoro, after having had such positive experiences with the eMotion and Loom. I may also already reveal to you that the Ondoro is my personal favorite of the three.
Also, I would like to take the chance to thank my friends over at The Pen Company in the UK, who granted me a generous discount on this pen so that I could shoot this review for you. Besides the splendid selection of other pens and brands that they carry, you can also get the Ondoro from them, right here (no affiliate, just a link).
But enough of the prelude for now. Check out the rest of the pen in the video-review below – as always preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
