Faber-Castell gift box sleeves

Two different Faber-Castell Loom pens arrived this week in these gift boxes. I don't think I've seen a gift box sleeve like the one on the right before that.

 

Guess which one contained the matt gunmetal pen, and which one the glossy silver barrelled pen?

The glossy pen has the fingerprint? That would be fitting. 🙂

Counterintuitively, the matt gunmetal one (which is so much nicer!) came in the box with the fingerprint sleeve.

 

I'm definitely putting it on the surplus pen to be packed away for gift-giving some day.

 

(I got sent an extra, wrong Faber-Castell Loom pen some months ago, and the retailer agreed that I should just keep the pen rather than send it back internationally at his cost.)

I agree, the gunmetal Loom is indeed a nice pen. I added a piece of heat-shrink tubing to the barrel of mine to reduce it's slipperiness even further (for me, it works better there than on the grip and doesn't interfere with the cap). It's nib is a delight to use. And, bonus points, it resists drying out too.

Oh! I see. I always thought you had the glossy one, and assumed that was why you were complaining about the slippery section.

YMMV, but I found it slippery in spite of the matte finish. It was a problem worth solving for myself because in every other way - weight, balance, nib, appearance - I enjoy the gunmetal Loom.

 

I should add - my skin is particularly dry because I have Hashimotos which causes thyroid failure and, even with treatment, the first symptom is dry skin. That may reduce my grip and add a perception of slipperiness where others do not. I don't know.

Looks like someone didn't wash their inky fingers before handling your box...
