The Benu Chameleon is a color-shifting fountain pen. The exclusive resins crafted by the Russian artisans at Benu have a reflective sheen that changes color when rotated in the light. Coupled with pearlescent, glittering resin, the Chameleon stands out from the crowd of fine writing instruments. The cigar-shaped body is faceted on six sides in a triangular shape. The cap unscrews to reveal the long grip section and a number 5 Schmidt stainless steel fountain pen nib. Each Chameleon fountain pen includes a standard international converter to fill with your choice of bottled ink.
Post the cap on the back-end of the pen and it will snap securely into place. The lightweight of the resin, coupled with the snug posting, make this pen ideal for those who like to write with the cap posted. The Chameleon has no clip, but the faceted sides keep this pen from rolling away. To add to the luxury of your writing instrument, you can opt to purchase a pen holder base to give your Benu pen a home on your workspace. All Benu pens include a 2-year warranty from date of purchase.

This is an updated review. At first, I had given the pen four stars, because I found the nib too tightly tuned and the writing experience a bit stifled as a result. But the pen and... view more I have gotten to know each other over the past month, and now it's one of my all-time favorites. It's a beautiful pen that I now writes wonderfully for me. I love the unique faceted-sides design of the barrel, the size and design of the nib and the barrel color. It truly is chameleon—purply in some light, glisteny blue in some, deep wizardy gold-green in others. It’s bewitching. The pen also comes with a converter that has the largest ink capacity of any I own. It posts easily and securely and feels great in the hand. I doubt I'll be able to resist collecting more Benu pens in the future. view less
