The new BENU Scepter collection of fountain pens features helical facets and an ergonomic design for long periods of comfortable writing. This resin fountain pen features a blue and purple base with large holographic sparkles throughout. It has a gold-plated colored Schmidt #5 stainless steel nib, a black resin grip and accents, is clipless, and does not post. This fountain pen comes with a standard international converter and one long blue ink cartridge. You can also convert it to eyedropper fill.
Inspired by a centuries-old symbol of authority, divine power and good fortune, the Scepter collection of fountain pens offers a glimpse of a majestic staff as depicted in the history of civilizations, ancient legends and modern fantasy stories. Scepters have been featured through history as universal symbols of invincible power. Carried by the pharaohs of ancient Egypt, the top of the Was Scepter was often shaped as the head of the divine Benu bird. Wielded by the warrior Agamemnon in Homer’s Iliad, Scepters were more recently seen as the staff of Gandalf the White in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Loki’s weapon in the Marvel movies.
“When co-founder Alexey Semanin and the team created the prototype of the new model, all of us couldn’t help but notice that its shape closely resembled one of the most well-known regalia. When we showed it to a few of our regular customers, the verdict was final—this is a Scepter of the true fountain pen enthusiast,” said Kate Dmitrieva, Co-Founder and Company Director of BENU.
Featuring helical facets and an ergonomic design for long periods of comfortable writing, the new collection of fountain pens from BENU is available in different colors and textures. Taking the concept of Scepters even further by following the tradition of distinguishing monarchs with the same given name by their ordinals, the company has used roman numerals to name each of the color variations in the Scepter line as Scepter I, Scepter II, Scepter III, etc.
“Our latest collection of attention-grabbing fountain pens is for those who appreciate playful, provocative and vibrant writing instruments. The Scepter pens are truly empowering wands for everyone. The naming we adopted shows that we do know how to have fun at BENU after all,” added Dmitrieva.
