I got this new pen at the Cambridge pen meeting.
One of the guys was offering it for 10$ a piece and I thought to myself why not and I must admit for the price this is a wonderful pen.

Thank god to Chenese mass production we can get good product for cheap prices and this pen is exactly it.If you would to engrave some known company name on this pen I am sure most people wouldnt know the difference because this pen feels very good and very solid and worth nuch more then the price I paid for it.

Its a metal pen with a hooded F steel nib.With the yellow and steel body this pen looks very modern and attractive.
To get the cap of I had to put it and it feels very secure on the section.It closes with a loud snap and there is no loose feeling again well done for the price.

The section is metal and is comfortable in the hand.Even though this is a metal pen this pen doesnt feel overly heavy.
This is a C/C filler and this pen comest with a nice piston fill converter.
I filled the converter with Waterman havana and off to work.
To my surprise and joy this is a true F nib with a nice flow to it.No skippping or hesitation, it simply works fine.Its a smooth nib (even though not as smooth as high quality pens) and I would have no problem using this pen every day with great joy.

So this pen is an answer to people like me that like to use as writers higher end pens that you dont have to spend a lot to get a good wrters.This pen isnt a collection item but as what it was design to do (write) it does with no real complaints.

I have been curious about this brand. It's nice to know that they can be a good cheap pen.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
