Hi Everyone,

 

I was recently putting together another order of custom nibs from FPNibs.com and noticed that they now offer two of their own pens for sale, a green acrylic pen called Ronda that takes JoWo #6 nibs and an amber acrylic pen called Marbella that takes JoWo #5 nibs. They look gorgeous and are reasonably priced, but I couldn't find any reviews of them anywhere.

Has anyone tried either of these pens? What are your thoughts about them?

 

Thanks!

I have not seen or tried these pens but have many JoWo and some Kaweco nibs from fpnibs. I have been extremely happy with their service. Your post prompted me to visit their web site, and they have greatly expanded their product offerings since my last visit. Very good prices.

You should check out the pens Pablo (the man behind FPnibs.com) used to make. They were called Gimena pens and they were top notch custom pens. Unfortunately they cost too much to produce and Pablo seems to have turned to an OEM for those pens.

Both pens look great and the JoWo nibs are reliable in my experience. It seems to be a jackpot for this money. I ordered both of them.

 

Here is an video from FPnibs introducing the pens:

I got a Ronda pen and I have ordered the Marbella model. The Ronda is a big wonderful but well balanced pen. The #6 JoWo nib looks very nice and writes just perfect, wet and smooth, a real medium line. A pen does worth much more than its price!

Thanks for the feedback! Good to know about the Ronda's balance. I'll probably go for the Marbella with my next order because of my small hands and plethora of JoWo #5 nibs lying around.
