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.
