The PenBBS 352 is a well-designed cartridge-converter pen offered in an attractive range of acrylics and sold at a reasonable price. Almost everything about the pen strikes a positive note. It's available with a new EF nib.
The PenBBS 480 is a redesign of the 359 introduced in 2018. Very similar in size to the 308, the 480 is a superb writer that fits naturally in the hand posted or not. The pen is a cartridge converter filler that also works as an eyedropper.
The PenBBS 500 makes a strong first impression. It feels substantial with solid size, girth and weight. Unfortunately, spring-loaded piston filling system is likely to be tricky for new fountain pen users.
The PenBBS 471 is like a little jewel - a bauble of sorts - at least when closed. Assembled for writing, it's as big as a PenBBS 355 and less than two grams lighter.
The PenBBS 309 could be the only pen you need. Near ideal in size and weight, the 309 posts perfectly and holds a lot of ink. And it was one of the first pens PenBBS made!
