Hello
this is a short write up of the Baoer FP in red lacquer. Quite likely a new design copied from Du-pont
I grind it down to italic fine. Have fun; enjoy.

You did a nice job on that nib.

I have one Baoer pen that I picked up early on upon my return to FPs. At the price point, I find it a fabulous pen. The one you've shown us is pretty. I'll be curious to see how the lacquer holds up, although I'm guessing it will do quite well.

Thanks for the review.
I came here for the pictures and stayed for the conversation.

I picked up a bunch of that model, in black as well as red, about a year ago. I must say that I found them not only very handsome, but also quite well made. Now, I'm not having an easy time finding more... They may have been a "flash in the pan".

Excellent review, how great it must be to be able to grind your own nibs, thanks.
And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.

I think this is the U85. I have a red one, and it's one of the pens in my pocket right now. I find it a smooth wet writer, and the size, weight and balance are excellent, if you don't want to post. Truth is, is doesn't really post successfully, and some might not like the threads and step from section to barrel, although they don't bother me.

The finish is, I think pretty robust; this one has been skidding over quarry tiles a couple of times with nary a scratch. One amusing feature is that, if you give it a good hard shake, the nib and feed will drop right out :unsure: ; if it weren't for that, I'd be recommending the pen left, right and centre. Imagine how messy a 'flick fight' would be with nibs and sections, as well as ink droplets, flying about!

Dittos on that! Love your handwriting.

I have a very cheap Baoer (Skywalker?) that's a Montblanc 'copy.' For its price, it writes very well. I might buy the red one if it already came with such a nice nib.
