Pen Review: Faber-Castell Design Basic Black Leather

In my previous video, I praised Faber-Castell for putting some nice design effort into their pens, and building pens that don’t look like anything else on the market.  Well, they have continued their streak of building unique pens, but in the case of this pen…well, let’s just say the design is not my cup of tea.  (It’s pretty ugly.)

In terms of writing, though, it’s a comfortable pen to hold, the nib works well, and it has never given me any problems.  And it’s a pretty good value for the price.
