Fountain Pen Review: Scriveiner Luxury EDC Stunning Matt Green Pocket Fountain Pen

I had fun doing my previous review of an amazing pocket fountain pen, so I'm doing a new review of another amazing pocket fountain pen! 

Many people include a pocket fountain pen in their everyday carry (EDC). Pocket fountain pens are popular because they combine the benefits of regular fountain pens with the added advantages of portability, durability, and convenience. Pocket fountain pens are small and lightweight, compact and portable, and practical and convenient. They don't take up too much space, fit easily in small pockets, and come in different materials, colors, and designs. Using a well-crafted pocket fountain can elevate the simple act of writing into a more thoughtful and enjoyable experience. 

I have tried several pocket fountain pens, and they are fun and cool to use. I like including pocket fountain pens in my EDC because they easily fit pen cases and the smaller pockets in my bags. Several months ago, I received a couple of pens from Scriveiner London to try and review, and I chose this EDC pocket fountain pen in matte green as my first review for this award-winning brand from London. The Scriveiner Luxury EDC pocket pen is a pocket-sized fountain pen designed as an EDC. It's made from aluminum and comes in different finishes, including matte black, red, and blue. This pocket fountain pen uses a fine or medium Schmidt nib and comes with ink cartridges and a converter for use with bottled ink.

The Stunning Matt Green pocket fountain pen is beautifully presented in the Scriveiner box. A hidden compartment underneath the pen tray contains papers and ink cartridges.
Aside from the pen and converter, the box also contains a guide, two spare cartridges (one black, one blue) in an envelope under the pen tray, and a warranty Card.

Scriveiner pens are produced by Scriveiner London, founded by entrepreneurs Yanning Li and her husband Justin Lowes. The couple identified a gap in the market for a British brand of high-quality pens and journals sold at affordable prices. They launched Scriveiner London in the United Kingdom in 2019 and introduced the 'Classic' pen range, an identifiably elegant British product. The Classic pen range was later followed by the 'EDC' line, a series of pocket pens available in different materials and colors.

In April 2023, Scriveiner London became the recipient of the first-ever King's Award for Enterprise: International Trade. The prestigious award recognizes the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of affordable luxury stationery. The brand won the award for its outstanding success in global expansion, having grown international sales by more than 600% over the previous three years.

The Scriveiner EDC pocket pen is made from aluminum and anodized with a matt green scratch-resistant finish with a silver chrome accent. The aluminum barrel has threads at both ends, so the pen can be posted securely. When capped, this pocket pen slips easily into pockets. When posted, it becomes a full-sized pen. While this pen is postable, I can still write comfortably without the cap being posted.

This pocket pen is made from aluminum and is scratch-resistant. This allows the pen to be put inside pockets with the usual 'pocket' contents—coins, keys, perhaps a knife—and still look like new. 
When the cap is posted, this pocket pen becomes a full-sized pen at five inches.

Here are some useful measurements and specifications of the Scriveiner Luxury EDC Stunning Matt Green Pocket Pen:
  • Length, capped: 4.7 in | 11.9 cm
  • Length, uncapped: 4.5 in | 11.4 cm
  • Length, posted: 5.0 in | 12.7 cm
  • Weight, whole pen: 29 g | 1.0 oz
  • Body material: Anodized aluminum
  • Cap: Aluminum, screw on, postable
  • Clip material: Stainless steel
  • Nib: #5 Schmidt available in F, M, or B
  • Filling mechanism: Converter or ink cartridge

The compact design of pocket pens makes them convenient to use, but their small size could present challenges in their ink capacity. The Scriveiner EDC pocket fountain pen uses short international cartridges or a converter for filling ink from a bottle. Scriveiner's ink converters are threaded, to be screwed onto the section. This prevents the converter from being accidentally misplaced and avoids messy ink spills.

The Scriveiner EDC pocket fountain pen has a clip! Most pocket pens are clipless, but this pen sports a durable and well-designed clip.

Scriveiner London is using German-made Schmidt nibs in their Classic and EDC fountain pens for smooth and effortless writing. This Stunning Matt Green EDC pen has a medium Schmidt nib that wrote smoothly out of the box.

The capped Scriveiner EDC is longer than the Kaweco Sport, Atelier F F2, and Wancai Mini, measuring 4.7 inches. When the cap is posted, it easily becomes a full-sized pen at 4.9 inches. Because of its longer barrel, the Scriveiner pocket pen is still comfortable to use even if the cap is not posted.

...but appears almost the same length as a Kaweco Sport. The Scriveiner EDC pocket fountain pen has a longer barrel, which makes writing still comfortable even without the cap posted.

To test how the Scriveiner EDC pocket fountain pen writes, I filled it with matching green ink, Robert Oster Eucalyptus Leaf. Filling the pen with ink was easy to do using the converter included in the box. The medium Schmidt nib wrote smoothly, and I had no discomfort or fatigue writing this piece. The Scriveiner EDC pen is lightweight and easy to use and I'm very happy that I can use this pen for regular writing. 

The medium Schmidt nib wrote smoothly! And I love that the pen and ink matched.

I am very happy with the Scriveiner EDC pocket fountain pen and I am recommending it to anyone who wants to know this award-winning brand and explore its unique designs. This is a beautiful pocket fountain pen and I'm glad to have it in my collection. Get one for your collection.

Rants of The Archer thanks Scriveiner London for providing the Matte Green EDC pocket fountain pen in this review. The EDC and Classic pens are available in Scriveiner's online store (
