Faber-Castell LOOM Fountain Pen

Beginner Fountain Pen

Offset by a colored cap, the metallic body of this entry-level fountain pen by Faber-Castell features a grip section with a series of finely embossed rings. Beneath the grip is a stainless steel nib, which is available in four different sizes. The snap-top cap—which is capable of being posted without affecting the pen’s balance—is fitted with a spring-loaded clip. The LOOM comes with one ink cartridge, though it’s compatible with a standard converter system, which can be purchased separately.

Note: At checkout, you'll have your choice of finish: metallic blue, metallic orange, metallic silver, matte gunmetal, or shiny gunmetal (base price); or piano black, piano lime, piano plum, or piano white (+ $5). Metallic blue and piano plum have been discontinued and are very limited. Nibs are available in extra-fine, fine, medium, and broad. You can add a converter for $5.
