  1. My next pen will most likely be a Faber-Castell with a fine nib. However, I can't decide whether to go with a Loom or an Ambition. I like the design of the Ambition better, but it's €55 is 26€ more than the Loom. I have just renovated my kitchen, so my pockets are not exactly overflowing with money. Are the nibs and feeds identical on these two pens? If that's the case, my choice will be slightly easier. Thanks in advance! /Andy
  2. From the album: European pens

    Out of the three models shown, I only have the Essentio Aluminium, so I can't comment on the accuracy of the descriptions for the other two; but the gripping section on the Essentio Aluminium is just bare, striated metal with no ‘softtouch’ or rubberised coating. For more details, see: Faber-Castell Loom Gunmetal fountain pen Faber-Castell Essentio Carbon fountain pen Faber-Castell Essentio Aluminium fountain pen

  3. I own mostly Indian pens and I want to breach out into foreign brands. On WilliamPenn.net, the Loom and Safari cost similar, but people abroad prefer the Safari as it costs cheaper. Given that both cost the same, which one is better? And if there are other recommendations in the Rs. 2500 range apart from these two, that would be great too.
  4. I recently decided to buy the Faber Castell Loom. As it is not available in India, I decided to buy it from an online store. After a thorough lookup for the Loom, I came by a site called https://www.penboutique.com where some of the Looms are on an offer of 32$. I don't know about any online fountain pen sites except Goulet. Currently the Loom is sold at Goulet for 55$. What I'm asking is the offer from penboutique is a dealbreaker or is it a shady site? (Mentioning again, I know nothing about online pen stores outside of India) https://www.penboutique.com/collections/loom?tab=products&am
  5. I already own a Lamy Safari fine which is around 2 years old and a Metropolitan fine which should be almost 1 year or so. I have laid my eyes on the Faber Castell Loom for a while now. Just want to know about it a bit more. I want to know the nib size of the fine and the medium sized nibs of the loom in comparison to the Safari. And which type of ink I should use with the Loom. Any help is much appreciated.
  6. With many goodwill found on web, I bought the FC Loom Gunmetal - M nib A short review on the pen I got, for using more than a week ProsThe finishing of the pen is unbelievably well done.Cool design, especially the cap, bravo!Sturdy, aluminium section and barrel. (metal thicker than Lamy AL)Love the nib, handsome and is smooth so the writing experience is pretty enjoyable.No hard start, no skip even in speed writing, not too wet, not too dry, very reliable.Unbeatable price from Cultpens, with a silver Loom ballpoint as a gift.Helpful FC converter (bought separately), it is easy to get it full
  7. Hi everyone, this is actually my first ever fountain pen review. I must admit that I won't have a point of reference since I only recently got my first (and only so far) pen - but I guess my first impression was a good one, and I thought I'd try my hand at reviewing it. I've read through the guidelines and I'll be following the template as close as I can. So, a reasonably priced entry level fountain pen - the Faber-Castell Loom. The Faber-Castell Loom Piano White Appearance & Design (9) - Simple, modern and classy The Loom comes in two variants, the metallic finish and the piano fin
  8. I just got my gunmetal Loom in a matte finish today. I was really impressed with the finish but noticed the section fits very poorly to the body of the pen. The run out of the body is so far out theres a big step on one side to the section. Do any of you guys with a Loom have this problem? This is the only pen in my 70+ Pen collection like this and I really didnt expect it from Faber Castell. Hopefully the pics will describe what Im talking about. I ordered the pen direct from Faber Castell. Should I exchange it? This cant be normal for them! Please see the pic of the worst case fitme
  9. I currently own a pilot metropolitan with a fine nib and find it a little too thin and scratchy at times (I have checked if the tines are misaligned). I am planning on purchasing a faber-castell loom as a second pen, but I'm not sure if I should get the fine or extra fine nib. The fine nib seems too broad on the goulet nib nook, and I'm leaning toward the extra fine loom since I am currently a student and do not always have access to good paper. Does anyone know if the smoothness of the extra fine is comparable to the fine on the loom and how the extra fine loom compares to the fine metropolit
  10. I just bought a Faber-Castell Loom and inside was a full cartridge and an empty cartridge. The empty cartridge doesn't have a closed bottom. Whats the purpose of that empty cartridge? Is it to just prevent the full cartridge from slipping down? Or is the empty cartridge suppose to have a closed bottom and I just got a defective one?
  11. Hi everyone! I'm new to Fountain Pen Network, and I have some question regarding Faber-Castell Loom. And piston converter. I just brought Loom, and when I put in the converter in and turn it a little to ensure it is in place, the nib/feed started turning too. Sort of like unscrewing from the body. Might be a stupid question but why does it do that? Is it because it is for changing the nib? Another burning question I have is whenever I ink up my pens using a piston converter, there is this air that goes up first before the ink starts to fill the converter. I have fully submerged the n

    Faber-Castell Nibs

    I have only one Faber-Castell fountain pen: the Loom. The nib is quite good, so I'm thinking about possibly buying more F-C pens down the road. Which brings me to my question: does F-C use the same kind of nib for all of its fountain pens, or does it use something different on its more expensive models (such as the Ambition or Ondoro)? And if it does use different nibs for different pens, have you noticed any differences in nib performance worth mentioning?
  13. I received a beautiful Faber Castell Loom for Christmas and I was just wondering why the nib doesn't have a breather hole? It's a beautiful and unique looking nib, but I just thought the lack of a hole was interesting. Anyone know?? I have noticed that when I remove the cap (to write), that there's little to no nib creep from the air pressure change--which I LOVE! My Safaris and Metropolitans have pretty substantial leakage whenever I remove the caps. Thanks! Sorry for the poor quality pic.
  14. Hi all, I was going to order a Faber-Castell Loom and I was wondering if anyone knew if a standard international cartridge would work with it? One review mentioned that they couldn't fit one in there but everything I can find says the it takes international cartridge. Is there some other reason that an international cc wouldn't fit in this pen? If so, are there any other options? I know I could refill cartridges but I would really prefer to use some sort of filling mechanism. Thanks!
  15. I bought a Faber-Castell Loom today because I like FC`s pens for their excellent steel nibs from Bock in Heidelberg. The Loom is very nice for a cheap pen, just the weight is something I don`t like for I`m used to writing with mainly lightweight pens. So what to do? Find a lighter barrel for the pen. So I rummaged in my box of cheapo fountain pens and found an older Schneider ink spiller with a plastic barrel that not only fit to the Loom`s section but also matched colourwise. The Faberschneider Frankenloom was born: http://i39.tinypic.com/2i8gio7.jpg The barrel`s threadings fit 100 percen
