BENU is a Moscow-based producer of concept-driven, handmade writing instruments. BENU’s story began in January 2016 when the co-founders, Alex Semanin and Kate Dmitrieva, decided to join forces to set up а new creative concept. Right from the start, the aim was clear: to make writing instruments and desk accessories for these who prefer bright colors and new designs that are playful, stylish and fun.
BENU pens are designed and handcrafted in the company’s own Moscow-based production facility. Each part of the pens is made in-house, except for nibs, rollerball refills, ink cartridges and converters. All BENU fountain pens come with stainless steel or gold-plated stainless steel Schmidt nibs.
Creative shapes and a broad color palette are the key characteristics of the BENU collection. The designers and artisans take great care to create materials of vibrant colors and diverse textures. Prior to assembly, each part of the pens is a subject to a series of technical, mechanical and visual inspections to verify its accuracy, durability and overall appearance. Before being dispatched from our company, the pens undergo a final quality control covering both visual and functional aspects. The company only allows pens that meet the highest quality requirements to be shipped to its customers.
Each fountain pen is supplied with an ink converter to allow the customer to utilise whichever bottled ink they desire.
Stonecott currently stocks a variety of nib sizes across the range but space constraints prohibit us from being able to stock all nib sizes in all models.
If your preferred nib/model combination is not currently in stock you can request that it be ordered for you; either by adding a note to your order or by submitting a request via the “Contact” form.
NB – any such requests will be subject to a longer delivery time.
