Penlux has been around for quite awhile....Historically they have been a manufacturer of Fountain Pens for other Pen companies.

 

Recently, they have started to offer Pens to the Public under their own name...

 

In my experience they make very good Fountain Pens.

I own one; a big green demo, piston filler, gold trim and I think it's called 'Amazon', 'Rainforest', 'Jungle' or some such. Oversized pen, but very comfortable. I really like it.

Review of one here:

I also own one. Penlux Masterpiece Grande Deep Sea I think it's called. It's about the same size as my Stipula Etruria Rainbow pens. I changed the nib to a Jowo no.6 nib, because I wanted a medium rather than a fine. I have since tested the Penlux nib and it writes well. If you're in the UK, The Northumbrian Pen Company sells them (https://www.northumbrianpenco.com/).
