I really need to put together a revised Top 5 Fountain Pens Under $25. I would definitely include the Faber-Castell Grip in that list. I reviewed it last year. This year, Faber-Castell released three new colors for this pen: Pearl Mint Green, Pearl Turquoise and Pearl Rose. All three models are available in EF, F and M. The pen is a snap-cap, European cartridge converter and slides just under the $25 mark.
The new colors are spring-tastic! The rubberized, rounded grip is confortable to hold, the slightly triangular shape and rubberized dots keep the pen from rolling, with or without it’s cap.
The new colors are a nice addition to the dark colors they already have in the line.
For our giveaway, sponsored by our good friends at Goldspot Pens, we have three pens to giveaway. They are available in these configurations:
TO ENTER: Leave a comment below and tell me what other color you think Faber-Castell should make the Grip Fountain Pen (and which one you’d like to win). Play along and type in something. It makes reading through entries more interesting for me, okay? One entry per person. We will select three winners, each winner will get one pen. If all the winners select the same pen, they have to play Rock, Paper, Scissors for who gets which one.
If you have never entered a giveaway or commented on the site before, your comment must be manually approved by our highly-trained staff of monkeys before it will appear on the site. Our monkeys are underpaid and under-caffeinated so don’t stress if your comment does not appear right away. Give the monkeys some time.
FINE PRINT: All entries must be submitted by 10pm CST on Sunday, May 24, 2020. All entries must be submitted at wellappointeddesk.com, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay? Winners will be announced on Tuesday (Monday is Memorial Day and even in this time of COVID-19, we still want to sit in lawn chairs in our backyard and drink beer, okay?). Winner will be selected by random number generator from entries that played by the rules (see above). Please include your actual email address in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. I will not save email addresses or sell them to anyone — pinky swear. If winner(s) do(es) not respond within 5 days, I will draw a new giveaway winner. Shipping via USPS first class is covered. Additional shipping options or insurance will have to be paid by the winner. We are generous but we’re not made of money. US and APO/AFO only, sorry.
