Laban Fountain Pens

The Laban Pen Corporation was established in 1981 by brothers John and Charles Hu. The aim of the company was to produce high quality silver and rhodium-plated writing instruments. Over the years the company has expanded its range of pens and the quality has continued to be high with an impressive collection of fountain pens being produced covering a range of pen sizes, innovative overlay and etching processes and smooth and reliable nibs.

As well as the many pens that make up those that are suitable for everyday use, Laban has also produced far more specialized and collectable models that can simply be labelled as visually stunning. The company is particularly well known for the dragon pen that was first introduced in 2004 and features an intricately designed dragon’s head as the cap and an equally elaborate barrel.

A more recent innovation to be released by the company is the Kaiser range of fountain pens. These pens feature hand painted artwork on the barrels that take many hours to complete. Over the artwork are layers of lacquer to protect them from being damaged. The nibs, clips and trim are created from the highest quality rhodium plating to produce one of the most impressive looking fountain pen designs in the world.

Immediately below you will find a selection of Laban fountain pens for sale that are represent the typical diversity in design, color and style. Further down the page is a listing of the major Laban fountain pen models, an illustrated example of each as well as a link to a page that provides a more detailed description of the pen.

There are suggestions that you have to be a little choosy about the ink that you use with the steel nibbed Laban fountain pens. Using Noodlers ink the pen appears to be prone to skipping. Changing to a different type of ink may help to solve the problem.

Reports have also been made about the caps of the Laban Mento not being airtight leading to a problem with the pen drying out. This problem is due to the lid failing to create an airtight seal where the clip is attached to the body. A solution to this problem has been suggested on Fountain Pen Network of using clear nail polish to seal the area. Simply place a few drops into the end of the cap and place it on its side to dry. Once it has dried it will have created an airtight seal and your pen should stop drying out.
