I'd like to share my new blog post on my Libelle Nature Cocoa Mosaic

Please see the full post with photos and links here: Featured Pen: Libelle Nature Cocoa Mosaic. Following is the text of the post.

This is the Libelle Nature Cocoa Mosaic. The Libelle Nature line comes in several styles and is available from many reputable vendors; including Swisher Pens, Pen City and Bertram's Inkwell just to name a few. I have no relationship with these stores and mention them only for examples. I highly recommend a search of the web if you are interested in this pen.

This pen measures 5-1/2 inches capped, 4-15/19 inches uncapped and 6-1/2 inches posted. It weighs in at a hefty 57 gms, but does not feel particularly heavy when I write with it.

I had a very difficult time finding any background information on this company. Apparently Libelle is a "child-company" of Kenro Industries; this information comes from a post at The Fountain Pen Network by the author of the blog Brassing Adds Character. Here are the basics of his post, which you may read in full here:

"Here's the quick scoop on Libelle. They're a "child company" (in-house owned) of Kenro Industries, who are the North American distributors for Omas and Aurora. Can't recall where the pens are made, but they're of fairly good quality. ... they're a nice pen.

Kenro, BTW, has EXCELLENT customer service. The Libelle leather products are extremely nice too! If you haven't had the chance to play with/hold one of their cases, make the opportunity. For the money, they're a great value. The 5-pen wrap that I have is probably one of the nicest pieces of leather I've ever owned..."

I really like this pen, it was one of the earliest pens that I purchased, when my obsession with fountain pens resurfaced. I honestly do not think that Libelle gets enough recognition. This is a wonderful pen. It is well made and beautiful to look at.

An interesting and very visual pen. Amazing what they are doing these days.

I wanted to also vouch for Kenro and their customer service. Sent in three pens for repair and even with a round trip to Italy the turnaround is going to be just about 2 months.
