Pen Review: the New and Improved Venvstas Carbon T Fountain Pen

Venvstas Carbon T fountain pen 2017

Venvstas Carbon T (2017). I bought one of the first Carbon T fountain pens more than a year ago, but it’s been updated a few times since then, and mine was recently replaced with a new, improved version. So I wanted to briefly review this one, which I think is better than ever.

    1. Dear Gabriel, I have sent all, but I had some problems with some addresses, Actually I think around 20 pens were sent and never reached the destination,…nevertheless Im going to check which pen you supported and, as that pen is not longer be made I’ll send you a carbon T instead. Its just that the T is a better pen, and it was decided to favor this one instead of the other one, which had some problems that I could not fix completely or at a high cost, for instance a recurrent capillarity problems in the carbon fiber, issues that made no sense to do it anymore, personally I prefer the Carbon T design which was made afterwards, and after learning a lot from the first experiences. It just looks better and works better too.

  1. I have one of these pens from last year (glossy) – I do love it. It is really sleek and pretty. The part that holds in the cartridge on mine is VERY tight, so I also only use it with cartridges. I wouldn’t want to trust a converter to it. Mine didn’t come with a converter.

    1. Thanks for commenting! It’s great to “meet” another Carbon T owner. 🙂

      My first Carbon T also had a very snug clasp for the cartridge/converter, so that’s three Carbon T’s like that (my two and yours). I did use a Venvstas converter on the first one, and it held up fine, albeit with a little cosmetic scratching, which didn’t affect anything. This second one, however, seems tighter, so maybe mine also will end up being cartridge-only (which would be fine).

      I’m glad that potential buyers can learn more about the pen this way. So can Venvstas — perhaps Lucio may find a way to adjust this in the future. It’s great to see a well-designed modern pen at a good price. I’m like you: I love mine.

  2. I just saw this one, hi, Im the designer of the pen, Lucio Rossi, I just wanted to comment that I would like to give every reader of the blog a reduction code until July 14 (our national hollyday, like your 4 of July) its 10% off on any product (mind that we’re not shipping ink outside europe) just take a look on the site and get to see this one and others. We have piston pens, cartride pens, hybrid pens, that means you can use a them both as a piston or a cartridge pen, as you can actionate the converter via a knob….take a look.
    Some comments on the pen, there’s still a clip version, only if you pick a carbon T glossy, also a version that will use all international converters plus lamy cartridges and parker, pilot etc, you’ll be able to fit on the pen whatever thing is left on your desk. so the pen will be pelikan/lamy/parker compatible at the same time….Laura’s frst carbonTpen was number 3, actually, so lots of things are getting improved. Plus, as the pen has life guarantee, if something goes wrong and the pen does not work, has any problem, you can change it, also you can send it to service to us at no cost any time you want, cleaning, or if you need to change the nib……….
    anyway, here the code:
    very easy.

  3. This is, undoubtedly, interesting pen. I’m still hesitatnt to give it a try as I’ve heard about the issues you mentioned in your review in few places. On the other hand, the design is quite unique.

    1. I get that. For myself, I took a chance, and I’m delighted with it. I really love the design, and I love using it. Not that it’s perfect, but no pen is, especially when you’re an early adopter. Maybe a Mitsubishi Hi-uni HB wooden pencil is, but even that doesn’t have an eraser. 🙂

      With my reviews, I hope people can get a little more information and make their own choice. Maybe it’s more of a sure thing for people who love modern design and minimalism, and also happen to like writing with fountain pens, than for people who are fountain pen fans first? But if it’s your style, then I think it’s worth checking out.
