BENU features a line of conceptual handmade writing instruments which play with streamline shapes, and an extensive palette of vivid colors. The Moscow-based company delivers its own interpretation of the modern writing experience. Inspired by the excited lifestyles of modern city dwellers, BENU has created pens for those who prefer a playful, stylish and fun design. BENU's fountain pens are handcrafted after the company's original designs. Each part of the pen is made in house, except for the nib units, ink cartridges, and converters. The BENU fountain pens are supplied with either stainless steel or gold-plated (depending on the model) stainless steel Schmidt nibs.
The Minima Collection features pens that are a bit smaller, and more compact. The shapes are cylindrical, with either facets, giving some texture to the body, while preventing rolling. The colors range from black with blue, red, and gold accents (that look brilliant with reflective light!) to a solid black, skull themed option, too! The collection includes fountain pens in different color combinations. It is pocket-sized at only 4.9" in length. The pens from this collection have streamlined, rounded or faceted bodies. The collection offers portable writing instruments to carry everywhere with the model's small size allowing the pens to fit conveniently in any pockets or bags. It features an acrylic resin body and decorative ring, and a screw on (cannot be posted) cap. It weighs 18 grams, and features a #5 stainless steel Schmidt nib. It can use standard short international cartridges (3.8cm) or a converter.
