Ink Color: Black


If you're a fan of chunky fountain pens, the Laban Mento is for you. The barrel reaches an impressive 15mm at the barrel's widest point, making it ideal for people with larger hands, although for its size the pen has a surprisingly manageable weight. No less impressive is the appearance, a retro tortoiseshell-effect finish made from hand-turned Italian resin. Featuring a durable iridium tipped nib embellished with gold plate highlights, the Mento fountain pen is no less practical than it is beautiful. A little bit of luxury that you can use every day.

Laban was established in 1981 by John Hu and his brother Charles, with the aim of producing high-quality sterling silver and platinum-plated pens. Their range has an opulent feel, using luxurious materials such as leather, silver, wood and Swarovski crystals. Distinctive styles include the ‘Mento’ with its marble effect hand turned resin, and the ‘Maya’ with a sterling silver lattice. Laban produces one of our bestsellers, a sterling silver ballpoint pen with a traditional fluted end. Laban takes international refills.

    A beautiful pen to hold and write with. Laban offer great Mento colours, in addition to tortoise shell, which I hope Pen Heaven will soon be offering.

    It's a big pen (with its own), with very nice finishes, it's excellent. It suits me well. It's a pen that I really appreciate, and it has become my favorite.

    A well crafted product, which met expectations - comfortable to hold, well balanced, and writes well

    Been using it a week with waterman ink, and the fine nib does exactly what I need it to. This is a great pen with plenty of online reviews, but only Pen Heaven had it in tortoiseshells with the option of a fine nib. Bravo, Pen Heaven!

    Super chunky pen - but light in our hand - love the broad nib it came with but recognise it will be too broad for some people to use. Beautifully made and the tortoise shell version it a beauty!
