Hi amigos, last week I received a special pen: my first Romillo fountain pen.
Romillo Pens is a new Spanish brand dedicated to the manufacture of handmade pens.
My pen is an Essential Writer model, it has the number 23 and is made in black hard rubber. It's an eyedropper and the Bock 18k nib (#6, with the logotype of the bran, is engraved by hand by a goldsmith from Madrid.
The presentation of the pen in the box is very elegant. Personally I find this pen superb, simple and very well balanced.
I hope you like it. Enjoy it,

Gracias, Carlos

You need to turn HTML on.

I am greatly looking forward to the photos!! Ondina, ages ago, posted a link to the Romillopens website and I really love their pen design, but not their pricing. Maybe after I see your photos, I just might change my mind and start saving up!

I had the fortune to hold & test some models....they are truly exquisite pens, right out of the tunnel of time, in what craftmanship, quality, materials, look and performance is concerned. The two I wrote with were early production models with inhouse nibs that wrote as vintage nibs do. I'm a bit disapointed to see that the production uses Bock nibs now (still, hand engraved, but streamlined, nevertheless). The price gap becomes less justifiable this way. The truth is that the pens are fantastic, but unfortunatedly out of reach for most users.

Great review, SAP, thank you.

The brand is new to me but that is an elegant pen with a beautiful nib.

They make their own nibs too right? I mean they don't use bock nibs?
