I do not know what I was expecting when I purchased the Briolette. There was something about it that caught my eye. I want to preface this review by saying that I did not think that I could be a Benu fan when someone introduced me to them last year. The more I thought about it (for a year), the more curious I became. I finally bought my first one and was star struck by the beauty and intricacies of the design. You may know that these are handmade in Russia and no two are alike. Colors may vary and there are different series and shapes. I’ve been collecting pens since I was in first grade. I won’t tell you how long ago that was! If you are looking for something that is totally out of the ordinary as well as a conversation piece, I suggest that you look into this brand. The black and white is extraordinarily beautiful and special. It does not have all the glitz of the other pens, but possesses its own personality. I am very pleased with the purchase, and very excited that Truphae delivered it within two days. The Black and White is one of my favorites of the Briolette series, Give these pens a try. They do not have a clip to hold them in your pocket, but I am certain that you can find a lovely pen sleeve at Truphae to hold your treasure: BTW, you might check out some of their larger sized pens. Just Enjoy your pen jewelry,
This was a birthday gift to me. I love the appearance and feel of this pen. It is a little lighter than I'm used to for a pen that size, but no complaints. In fact, I read on Reddit that Benus are made for looks and not writing, so I was a little worried. This writes great, and I find it to be a pretty juicy writing experience, which is something I like in pens.
This is the second Benu Briolette I own. The black and white design is really attractive and it goes great with the Benu pen stand I ordered. I ordered the M and it writes beautifully every time.
Looks and performs beautifully so far, very smooth even with the fine nib
Beautiful pen. Great price. Fast shipment.
