TTLB brass fountain pen

Nice size, good weight, but in a slim pen

Shannon B. (Kingston, JM)
First Brass Pen

I’ve had mine for almost a month.
Pros: Writes well, good ink flow and the patina is beautiful.
Cons: There really aren’t any cons I just would have preferred a Japanese fine nib. Other than that it’s a beautiful pen, I use it everyday.

A rubbish pen!

I wrote a review of this fountain pen several days ago but it has very oddly not appeared on the website. I'll try again...
The body of this pen is lovely - brush polished brass, aesthetically pleasing to look at and hold. It's the nib that's the problem. It's complete rubbish. Harsh, scratchy, the ink doesn't flow, the nib tears the paper. It didn't work from the outset.
The nib unit has now gone in the bin & I'm left with an empty pen body that cost over $100 AUD. Very, very disappointing.
Give this one a miss & save your money.

I like it but ...

I like this pen. Pros: good weight, great aesthetics, looks and feels substantial, nib writes well, not at all scratchy, patina well, I dont have to be too careful of hurting the pen. Cons: Quite narrow for my grip, nib is not the wettest, does not post well, not suitable for long writing sessions as it is a bit heavy. Would I recommend it? Sure, if you are into brass pens this would be a good option, but unfortunately this is my first and only brass pen so I cannot really compare.

A lovely little brass pen

It is a lovely brass pen for the price and a reasonably smooth writer.
