I bought this Dewen Chinese pen on eBay for $2.99 including S&H. No skipping, no scratching smooth fine nib. Writes better than much more expensive pens I have got do. Black anodized barrel and cap, mate plastic section. It is a tiny pen! The length capped is 123 mm, uncapped 115 mm, posted 143 mm. The barrel/cap diameter is 10.3 mm. Sturdy, well finished body. Try, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you. I have purchased several pens from them, the most recent being a pair of Dukes, a D10 Silver Rings, and a Mako Shark. Great vendor of low cost, quality pens (not affiliated, unfortunately for me).

It comes with a nice squeeze bar converter, but I have replaced it with twist one.

I got a Lanbitou #222

and a Lanbitou #322


Yes, both from goldquills(no affliation).
for my starter pens. They'll be much easier to mourn if someone walks off with them or I manage to lose them, plus cheap doesn't necessarily mean bad, right?
I haven't gotten a chance to write with them yet.
I bought cartridges, but they were too fat by a few millimeters.
so I bought Private Reserve Black Cherry, my first bottle of FP ink....and I forgot the pens back at my dorm.
So I will get something of a review up on how they write when I get the chance--a lot of people probably don't use fountain pens because of the initial investment, so if you can start with a much cheaper pen before deciding if it's for you or not, it'll be much easier to convince others.

I do have one gripe. there was a dent in the red one when I got it in the mail. I wish they would sent them with some cardboard or something to sandwich them in.

Also, Adallak is right, they are tiny, which is perfect for me. I don't like massive pens.
