Laban is a Taiwanese pen brand that seems to get more and more recognition out there in the fountain pen-community. There are still only a few reviews of these pens readily available – I have contributed two: one of the T-325, and one of the Mento.
A little while ago, Laban had offered to send another model they have: the Flora/Corinth – bot with a similar form factor but different colors and finishes. In order to expand the number of reviews of Laban pens for the wider community, I gladly agreed on a review. Which you now find below.
The pens are still not all too common, it seems, and I also didn’t find too many retailers carrying them. Still, they are available, and you can get the ones that I have a look at here from FoutainPenHospital for instance, here and here (no affiliate, just a friendly service to you).
The video is, as always, preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
