Namisu is an interesting UK-based company that has successfully come up with a range of writing instruments – especially fountain pens – that excel first and foremost through their built quality as well as a unique, clipless, minimalist design.
The pen that I am looking at in this review is the Nova that has most recently been released in a very nice stonewashed titanium finish (I have reviewed the Orion in this finish before). The Nova in this review sports a No. 6 Bock Titanium nib. This Extra Fine nib has a lovely feedback when writing, lays down a truly fine line, but – being made from Titanium – does allow for considerable semi-flex, which definitely makes it an interesting thing.
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!
