Faber-Castell Loom Fountain Pen - Piano Black, Extra-Fine is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from extremely smooth steel nib pros: extremely smooth nib; pocket-friendly size; moderate weight; extremely smooth nib, even in extra-fine; clean and simple design (especially when unposted); well-balanced when posted; spring-operated pocket clip; extremely smooth nib -- seriously, it's extremely smooth. cons: the cap may not be to everyone's liking; cap is unexpectedly difficult to remove; does not include a converter; extremely smooth nib might make other steel nibs insecure; extremely smooth nib might empower you to write more than you intended. notes: this pen would make an excellent starter fountain pen -- though this might spoil your exploration of other steel nibs because it is just so extremely smooth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I didn't want to like this pen. I admit it, I didn't want to like it. Stylistically, It doesn't do much for me. But I like Orange and for $40, why not give it a try. I can now see why so many people say that FC nibs are excellent. Smooth writing, I have left it for week on my desk at the office and when I come back from my trip and it writes on the first stroke.The nib is simply fantastic. It's not a flexy nib, don't get me wrong (but a little variation can be had), but it works just like a non-flex nib should. The Style still leaves me wanting, but its a great little pen for a really nice price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well constructed, but may drip or leak I love the way this pen writes for a fine nib. However I wish I had purchased the Basic carbon fibre or leather instead. I have since learned that the metal conducts the heat towards the ink, warms and expands the ink, which causes it to push out and drip from the nib. The metal body does make the pen quite heavy which I don't mind. However, in spite of the ribbed grip, it's still too slippery for my taste. Construction is good, but I don't like the design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nibs, Nibs, Nibs!!! I started using a fountain pen after I injured the inside of my left middle finger (left handed tilted crab writer). First the Metropolitan fine (great pen), the line was wide enough to cause problems(Note: I am an engineer and letter small). Next several Lamy's. The EF nib really worked great. Was watching a video on the next level pens (love the water bottle and sweat band). Brian said that the loom EF would would be be even finer, Yeah, I mean harrumph. I really like the nib, its very fine and really smooth. I settled on Noodler's Heart of Darkness and the loom just flies across the paper (Leuchtturm1917 A5) like a skater on ice! So, I am switching back and forth between the Loom and a Lamy Logo, both with EF nibs and polished up with some 3M micron abrasive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Work Horse Pen This is just an overall solid pen. I love it. The design is not flashy but it has a hint of class. The weight of the pen feels nice. The cap feels super secure so I don't feel scared carrying this around in my pocket. There is some feedback to this ef nib but it's the good kind. I find that it can be really smooth when writing on certain types of paper. Also the design of the nib is probably my favorite. I don't know why but not having the little hole on the nib just makes it look cool to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best extra fine pen I have! The Loom is one of my favorite pens! Even though this could be considered a "starter pen," it's probably the one I reach for most often, especially at work. This pen feels virtually indestructible, while still looking appropriate at the office. The grip, despite being metal, is surprisingly comfortable for long writing sessions without becoming slippery. Plus the tightly-fitted snap cap makes it good for taking quick notes, while still protecting the nib. The best part of the Loom is definitely the nib. It's buttery smooth, while still being incredibly fine, especially for a western nib. I always have this pen (filled with Aurora black) at the office, since it's the perfect pen for writing on cheap copier paper. I wish I had a Loom when I was back in school, since the extra-fine is definitely the best affordable, tough pen for writing on cheaper paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Daily Writer I love this pen. It was my first fountain pen and I have used it every single day since I got it. I'm a grad student and I use it for taking notes, writing letters, writing checks, and pretty much every thing else. The fine nib does leak even though I just throw it into my bag. The construction is sturdy and the nib is perfect straight out of the box. It's a tremendous value for such a comfortable and easy to maintain pen. Best of all, it looks very professional.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely tight cap makes pen difficult to use While this pen has some fine qualities, notably a smooth, pleasant extra fine nib, I find it awkward to use. The polished chrome barrel is slippery, even with the matte grip area. The pen's balance feels off with or without posting the cap. The biggest problem though is the extremely tight cap. The slippery barrel would make removing any cap difficult - but this is SO tight I have to really yank it off. Like many Goulet Pens customers, I have many pens but this is truly beyond the pale. Thus, for say, note taking, it is not workable as one is loathe to put the cap back on between writing spurs and the pen starts to dry up. Definitely not my best pen purchase. I use it to write a batch of notes all at once, then I put it away. I don't think it is worth it, even with the reasonable price.
