I really enjoy Beni pens, but this one is especially nice. The material has an otherworldly quality. The finish is luxurious and the facets in the barrel make it hard to put down. These are my go-to poetry pens.
Brown is my least favorite color. But this pen is stunning and mesmerizing. The grip color isn't the greatest. But the barrell and cap material has depth and beautiful color! Even the brown is beautiful. The broad nib is nice and smooth and writes very well. Thie pen is very comfortable and light. And the glitter in this pen isn't over-the-top. It really just highlights the other colors of the pen. I love BENU packaging. It's eco-friendly (compared to so many other brands) and simple. Great pen!
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.
