A few notes about Benu that I think make the company interesting: all the pens are designed and handcrafted in the company's Moscow-based production facilities. They are described as "conceptual writing instruments and desk accessories, which play with streamline shapes and an extensive palette of vivid colors". I can't argue with that - they are absolutely vividly colored and the designs and shapes are intriguing and often unusual.

The team goes through quite a few steps to achieve the final product: sketch and technical drawing, product prototype and pilot model, usability testing, production process mapping, color palette and material, materials testing, production of parts, final polymerization, midpoint quality control, product assembling, fountain pen nibs, and where applicable, hand painting on certain models, hand polishing, finished products packaging, and finished products quality control.

There are a few things I am really pleased with: the packaging is very simple, tidy, and recyclable. They are small cardboard boxes, paper sleeves, and shredded paper inside. It's so minimal and if you do choose to keep them, they stack and store very well. I love the color options because I like colors and shiny sparkly things! This aspect appeals to me. Lastly, I have used over twenty Benu pens over the last few years. Your miles may vary, but I have never had a nib that did not work. Especially the broad nibs - they are exactly my flavor: smooth, wet, juicy, very pleasant to write with, providing killer ink shading. The nibs are firm steel writers and I find they perform really well for hand lettering and round-point style calligraphy.

Benu's Grand Scepter series comes in five different colorways and they all have awesome sparkles, cool colors, and magical glow-in-the-dark ends - this is the X colorway. They made it even better by giving them #6 nibs and facets that line up *perfectly*.

It looks like it may be super uncomfortable in hand but it's not. They don't roll, they write super smoothly, they're so easy to clean and take care of, they're pretty robust to carry everywhere, they glitter, and they glow.

Here are a few reasons why you might need a Benu Grand Scepter:⁣

⁠• your budget is $110USD⁣
⁠• you are looking for a robust pen that isn't heavy⁣
⁠• you want a niiiiice smooth steel nib (go for the broad)⁣
⁠• low maintenance standard international cartridge/converter filling system⁣
⁠• you love shiny, sparkly things⁣
⁠• you love details like twisted facets lining up every time⁣
⁠• very comfortable in hand - no slipping, no sliding, no sharp bits⁣
⁠• you want a fun gift for someone (or yourself)⁣

As they are standard international cartridge/converter, it's really easy to work with. Cartridges are a cinch to find and you can choose from a massive range of colors (from Diamine, for example, but in my case here, I used the discontinued Montblanc Pink). The converters are also easy to come by and replace should anything happen to it. This also makes them easy to flush with water when you want to change your ink color.
