BENU Talisman Bodhi Fountain Pen
This is a Benu that doesn’t knock anybody’s eyes out. It makes a less flashy, more stately impression. It does have some sparkle but, perhaps because the bits are larger and the material is a bit less translucent than some, it seems almost to be illuminated from within. The mix of translucent green and opaque brown is unusual and I really like it. Many BENUs are a bit over the top for me. This is only my 2nd and it is my favorite.There’s a lot I like about the size, balance, postability and weight. The Talisman seems to be my favorite model so far so it s is great to have these calmer choices. My other one is also a Talisman; the Dragon’s Blood.
Gorgeous pen! Very rich wet ink flow, wonderful all around.
I really love the looks of this pen - the material is lovely and the pen shape is cool and interesting! This is the first time I’ve tried a Benu Talisman model and I have to say I like the feel of the Euphoria in my hand a bit better (I use my pens unposted). However, I’m sure that’s all a matter of personal preference. Great Pen!
This is a MUST have for your collection. The pictures do not do this pen justice at all. The nib holds a ton of ink. (I always test my pens before I load them by dipping them in ink.) Very smooth writer. Nice weight in the hand. Definitely one of my favs!
