Faber-Castell E-Motion And Loom Differences



Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I recently purchased a Faber-Castell E-motion Pearwood after finding it at a clearance sale. This was the first time I had ever tried a fountain pen in this price range and I was stunned by the way it wrote.

 

After a bit of research online I learned that the Basic, Loom, Ambition, E-motion and Onduro all seen to have the same nibs. So I was wondering how the E-motion compared to the significantly cheaper Basic and Loom. Do the Basic and Loom perform the same as the E-motion with the only difference being the fancy body?

 

Thanks in advance for you reply (sorry if this was adressed in another thread that I didn't find).

If you want a much cheaper version of a good Faber-Castell nib I would go for the WritInk, which is cheaper than the Loom but in my experience with one is a more pleasing writer.

 

I believe a wood version of that is due out too.

Well it's pretty cool that they offer such a nice nib on all their models, but this looks pretty bad. My pearwood ambition is stunning and very comfortable to hold, particularly at this cooler time of the year when an aluminium pen would make me think twice, even if it took me a little while to get used to holding it a bit farther from the nib than I was used to. I was looking forward to the Writink but at least in the photos it looks a little gaudy.

I just got an Ondoro. My first Fabre-Castell. I was really blown away by the smoothness of the nib, and the nice wet ink line that it lays down. Not sure how I like the rounded edges that come with the six sided body. Gets incomfortable for long writing sessions. But if I can figure that out, it's a fantastic pen.

I don't think the all black Writink would be too gaudy!
