Raymond Zhang review: Camlin Trinity Fountain Pen
The Camlin Trinity Fountain Pen is an Indian made school fountain pen. Retailing for a price of 100 rupees (just over 2 Singapore dollars) in the Indian market, it got its name Trinity based on the fact that the pen can be filled via 3 ways- converter, cartridge, or eyedroppering it.
Being made of plastic, this pen is light, but it isn’t filmsy, and it is reasonably well made. Having said that, there is a vegetative resin smell on the pen, not that I can smell it while writing with it, but if I hold the pen close to my nose, I can smell it.
The steel nib on this pen was a pleasant surprise to me. Despite it low price, there was no tinkering required- it wrote smoothly out of the box! All I did was to wash the nib and feed prior to inking the pen. While it is definitely not buttery smooth like those found on fountain pens that cost hundreds of dollars with a gold nib, this pen definitely delivers a writing performance that rivals pens that cost much more!
I’m happy to add an Indian flavour to my fountain pen collection! #camlinkokuyo #camlinindia #fountainpenaddict #fountainpenlove
