A couple of months back Jeff Pearson posted some comments and queries on my blog regarding fountain pens. Later on among the comments and replies, one day he suddenly asked for my mail address as he wanted to gift me certain fountain pens. Thinking it a bit quirky, I avoided it. Later on after more of such requests I finally relented.

 

btw Jeff is a member of FPN (which I came to know later) &  having username notimetoulouse

 

So yesterday I got these wonderful fountain pens -

 

Jinhao x450,  - love it

Kaigelu 316, - had only seen its reviews on FPN

Picasso, - had only heard of the brand

Wingsung 380,  - I already have it, the same one !!!

Lanbitou - so tiny didn't know it existed  :-)

 

and also a carefully packed set of ink cartridges - obviously I did not know that these inks also came in cartridges.

 

Thanks Jeff for these wonderful pens and cartridges - and taking the pains to ship these from your end - which is half the world round !

 

btw the Jinhao x450 is my favourite, and I had been searching for this colour for quite some time :-)

And all the pens have very smooth nib, and look great!

I love my Jinhao x450, especially since I replaced the nib with a Goulet #6 fine. I have a couple of Heros that I like. Yesterday I received a Dikawan 15 from speerbob. I love it, but it is a dainty pen and would not be for everyone. But the nib is very smooth and a fine point, which works well for me. I want to get a Kaigelu, too (love the Kangaroo!).
