BENU pens have shifted operations to Armenia. Without getting into the details of what necessitated the shift, and without venturing to hazard guesses as to what kind of an effect such a move will have on the sheer genius of this creative prodigy, I can say only one thing: Love is not love that alters when it alterations find. No, my love for BENU will not change even a bit, though if I am asked to explain why I love BENU pens so unconditionally, or when I fell in love with them first, I may not have ready answers.

But to provide a clinical justification to a purely emotional take would be to say that BENU pens are strikingly beautiful. BENU is a kind of enfant terrible in the staid world fountain pens, making statement pieces that are not hemmed in by conventionality, always challenging the ordinary, ever ready to stretch the horizons of creative license. And this, BENU has been consistently doing even as they have maintained their reputation as creators of products that are top quality in the real sense of the term. To be aesthetically appealing and functionally perfect, you will agree, is generally considered to be mutually exclusive. Any brand that achieves that, with every single piece, demand not only our respect, but also unstinted affection. Yes, I love BENU pens and I am sure that there are many like me out there.

Kate Dmitrieva and Alex Semanin started their journey in 2016. What has been fascinating about the journey is the kind of support base they have built up over the years, catering to a niche that has literally found their voice, thanks to BENU. What is heartening is that despite the booming of the guns in the background, BENU is continuing its journey unabated. And, you will appreciate, it is easier said than done. Creativity has no app-enabled switch that can be turned on anywhere and everywhere, and to suddenly move operations from one place to the other, and then to start from where one had left is an impossibility, even for super heroes. And BENU cannot be an exception, I shudder to think.

Then there are the usual, minor problems. For one, the input supply channels have to be reestablished. BENU as we all know, is celebrated for using only the best inputs that have been sourced from the far ends of the world, redirecting them all to a new location is no child’s play, even in these so-called boarder-less days of globalization. The second obvious challenge is to get the master crafts people, each a domain expert of global repute, sever existing ties and relocate. To work from a new studio, without giving it adequate time to break-in as it were, has its challenges as well. And then to ensure the seamless transition, replete with logistics that will ensure a hassle-free delivery, especially considering just how finnicky we fountain pen and accessory buyers and collectors are.

Lt us not get bogged down into the “How”, of BENU’s remarkable transformation and share with you the “What”. What has BENU achieved, on this the Other Side of Midnight. Allow me to introduce the Four-Leaf Clover and the Dream Bean Fountain pens, game-changers both, presented as extension of the Talisman collection .

The four-leaf clover is a delicate plant that is found mostly in the Northern Hemisphere, yet known around the world as the representation of good luck. This famous flower is a rare variation of the common three-leaf clover, and it is said that he who stumbles across a four-leaf clover will be blessed with eternal good luck and prosperity. With only 1 in 5,000 clovers bearing 4 petals instead of 3, finding one in nature is something to celebrate. For this reason, BENU has infused the four-leaf clover powder into the latest BENU creation: a mystical and mesmerizing Four Leaf Clover fountain pen.
