Those of you who know me well know that I am an avid supporter of American small businesses and American-made products, so today I bring you a review of the Inferno Presimo by Red Kite Creations. Red Kite Creations is a small family-owned business located in Indiana that sells finely handcrafted acrylic and wood pens and other custom made products. Thanks to the owners Wes and Rebecca for giving me the opportunity to review one of their models! They provided excellent support while ordering and I can tell that they really appreciated my business.
The Inferno Presimo is an acrylic handmade pen that is made to order. The pen arrived in an elegant velvet box, which makes it great to send as a gift. During my first impression, I was absolutely amazed by the quality and heft of this pen. Honestly, some of my more expensive pens can't compare to this quality. The Inferno Presimo offers a unique design with hints of orange and yellow on the acrylic barrel. This pen will definitely make a statement. The acrylic barrel is hand turned and finished by Wes and the components and accents are made of chrome. The nib is stainless steel with a medium point iridium tip. The screw top feels secure and will protect the nib from daily mishaps.
The iridium medium point stainless steel nib writes quite smooth and provides clean lines. I had no difficulty with flow using Diamine Oxblood, Sailor Jentle Black, and Waterman Intense Black (as recommended by Wes). The grip on the Inferno Presimo is a bit smaller than what I'm accustomed to using; however, I experienced no fatigue after long periods of writing and have started to enjoy it more each time I use the pen. I enjoy how the Inferno Presimo provides a well-balanced writing experience when posted or unposted.
The video below shows a writing sample using Diamine Oxblood. As you can see I am no calligrapher, but the Inferno Presimo flows well and provides clean lines.
Penman's Final Remark
The Inferno Presimo is a unique looking pen that will not break the bank. It writes quite smoothly and plays well with multiple inks. Most importantly, purchasing this pen helps to support an American small business.
