These two Chinese pens from the eighties were given to me in the eighties (go figure!).
The white feather one has a pleasant dragon engraving...
Not much else to say, but the price should say the rest: $15 for both shipped in the USA.

Interesting. The White Feather looks like a Targa, with a Triumph nib (the Targa had an inlaid nib). Tempting, just for the White Feather.

I hesitate because I do not have that much money right now. Except for an 8 week period from Mid January to mid March, I have been jobless for over a year. My budget is stretched to the max, as our financial obligations were based on my employed salary, which unemployment pays 40 percent of, so that reduction has had a huge effect on our budget.

So, as you may have guessed, the pens are now on hold, pending the receipt of funds from Stephen, and Donnie may yet have a white feather in his cap as well...

I love the happy endings!

:-)

Greetings Donnie, I hope your day is going well.

It actually worked out pretty well as far as I am concerned. I was actually after the other one. I have three or four various Wing-Sung and Hero pens that are very similar and wanted to add this one to the bunch. As for the White Feather FP, please PM your full snail mail address or email it to steve@sproctor.com and I'll ship it off to you as soon as it gets here from Leo... The only requirement is that you have to send me something back via the US Mail, handwritten using the White Feather pen once you've received it and had a little time to ink & play around with it. I'll even throw in a stamped envelope...

Is that a deal?


Very Best Wishes & Kindest Regards,
Stephen

Stephen,

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I hope you are better after your illness. I will let you know as soon as I receive the pen.
