My thanks to watch_art for this thorough and candid review of the HONG QIANG 621 (which I provided).
A few months back watch_art reviewed another of my pens (GUI GUAN 515) but felt the GUI GUAN's cap
turned too easily for his tastes. Thus, when I found these 'hex' pens, on which the cap can not spin, I thought of him.
I have been carrying one of these around for about one month now. The anodized aluminum body, so far, shows no signs of scratching or denting. The end caps and section, by the way, are chrome plated brass.
Watch_art makes an interesting point when he suggests that, had he not been able to confront one 'in the flesh' he wouldn't have paid any attention to it. Sometimes 1 palpation is worth 1,000 pictures.
That's why I'm particularly grateful to watch_art, and several other kind FPN members, who share their experiences, with these little Chinese orphans, with the rest of the FPN community.
Best

Aluminum huh? I wouldn't have guessed. Very nice.
