I am new to FPs so please be kind; this is my first attempt at a FP review. This pen is my first experience with buying off of ebay, and my first extra-fine nib. I was pleasantly impressed with this pen. It is a Dikawen pen with the number 622 written on it opposite of Dikawen. It was described on ebay as: Luscious Dust Blue Fountain Pen Silver Extra Hooded) It is a pretty slender and light pen, but comfortable to hold.

The ink I have in the pen is Chesterfield Mahogany (which I believe is simply repackaged Diamine Saddle Brown) with some MB black added to darken the brown a little bit. When I realized how fine of a line it produced I decided to see how it would do writing Hebrew. I had hoped to find a real fine nib to use in writing Hebrew, and this pen seems to work just fine, it writes pretty well really small.

Over all I have been quite happy with this pen. The only thing I think could have been better is that the clip is rather cheap and not attached all that well. All in all not bad since I paid less than six dollars for the pen and that including shipping from Hong Kong.

Nice one, Preach! You can't go wrong for that price. I also have a hooded-nibbed pen (Lamy 2000) and like it lots. Those are excellent verses and it's quite impressive to see you write them in Hebrew. Keep well, Jonathan

Nice review, and it's always pleasing to see non-Latin scripts here. Thank you.

Sorry to tell you this, but continence/continance, [sp], and countenance are very, very different things.
