Afternoon

I bought this Jinhao X500 on the 'bay two days ago for £2.50 (free postage) and it arrived this morning. I immediately used the included converter to fill it with Skrip Black and it worked immediately. The nib is very smooth, but not overly so and I felt as if i had some control. I really liked the styling, the amber middle section is very striking and pleasing to look at, and the nib (M) has some lovely detail. I am not yet accustomed to the weight and balance of the pen, I find it a is a bit top-heavy while posted and for me too light when unposted but I m sure I will become accustomed. I highly recommend this pen to anyone looking for a cheap yet smart pen.

Thanks for the write up. Jinhao has a bewildering number of models.

Interesting, I had not seen this one. It sort of takes styling queues from Pelikan.
