What Chinese pens are you using today?
There have been a number of threads about other pens, but I'm surprised how many are in use. What are yours & how do you rate them?
In the last couple of months I have found that I'm always carrying a Chinese pen along with my more normal Parkers, and today both are Chinese:
Kaigelu 316 Amber/grey.
Kaigelu 319 Lapis cap.
Both are excellent - writing at least as well as a Duofold & Sonnet respectively.
Today? As always, a Hero 616 (two, actually, different colors, dif inks), a green Hero 329 ( my Noodler's BGG pen), and a Hero 86 (the fude). I'm still looking for the perfect ink for that one.
Just for this week I'm test-driving a Duke someone here kindly traded me.
Can't get the model number now, but it's red and silver and heavy. Loaded with JH Rouge Caroubier, kind of matching the barrel.
I have two or three other assorted Chinese pens on a porcelain tray waiting for loading. Will report back.
