Video-Review: Laban Mento

Laban is a Taiwanese pen brand that not many are aware of. And there are also not many reviews of these pens readily available. Reason enough for me to help in filling in this gap. I have already reviewed another Laban pen a little while ago: the T-325. The model that I review here is called Mento, and if you are into oversized pens and interesting pen materials, this one here might just be right up your alley.

The pens are 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 them for instance at PenHeaven or Goldspot pens (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!

    I would like to know the weights (body, cap – in grams) and lengths (uncapped, capped, posted; grip min, max and median diameters; whether the Section to Cap threads are objectionable; Section grip length; barrel max width) of a pen, along with the number of turns of the cap. Of other interest to me is the nib size and whether it uses a standard Nib Housing Unit, like a Jowo #6 or Bock Type 250.

    While it would be superfluous information in a short video, it would be germane in a text review.

      Good point. Nothing that I do in my reviews though. I believe that for most of the pens, this kind of information is already readily available from other reviewers, the manufacturers themselves, or retailers.
