Video-Review: Namisu Horizon

I have already reviewed about a handful of pens by the UK-based pen company Namisu – and among these one of my favorite of their pen models, which is the (meanwhile unfortunately discontinued) Nova Studio ebonite pen.

In the end of last year 2017, Namisu has launched another ebonite pen called Horizon, which is sold out at the moment of writing this review right here, but it seems to still be in production, as it says “SHIPS IN 5 WORKING DAYS” on the website.

The Horizon, just as the Nova Studio, is an ebonite writing instrument – they are also the same price-wise. Just that the Horizon is cigar shaped, has brass finials (as opposed to the Nova Studios’ Titanium), and the steel nib is gold plated (as opposed to the Novas unplated steel nib). Also, the dimensions and proportions of the pens are slightly different.

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!

    This is a very classy looking pen. The gold plating on the nib really elevates its appearance. And it appears to write very smoothly.

    I was wondering if the brass jewels on the top and bottom of the pen would allow it to be used as a stylus on tablet or smart phone.

    Once again, a very enjoyable review.

      Thank you very much for your comment! I am not sure if the brass parts would allow for the pen to be used as a stylus. I always assumed that these stylus tips have to made from a rubber or so. But not entirely sure about that.
