It is a little while ago that I had already reviewed a Faber-Castell “e-motion” – just that it was the rollerball version back then, which is a great pen that I still do enjoy a lot. A while later, I had the pleasure of reviewing a Faber-Castell Loom. Now, while the rollerball mentioned afore had totally sold me on the design of the “e-motion”, the nib of the Loom has basically done the same to me for those Faber-Castell steel nibs. These are certainly one of the smoothest steel nibs that I have ever come across.
Having that said, there was little doubt I would at some point also get an “e-motion” as a fountain pen. That point in time was not all too long ago, and I am really glad I pulled the trigger on that one!
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 Faber-Castell e-motion that I review here at an awesome price 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!
