Just ordered my first Jinhao, a 450 and a 750;  I guess it takes about a month or two to get them so I guess I'll let the anticipation build

Delivery times are odd.

I've had stuff take 3/4 weeks and sometimes they arrive in 8 days!

 

Last time I ordered from Yespens it was only about 8 days before they were through the door.

The same here (New England, USA). Unpredictable, but any Chinese order has arrived within a month.

 

Today I'm using my Hero 901, by far my flashiest pen, with Diamine 'Grey' ink (the sedate ink presumably offsets the bling of the pen). I'm surprised how reliable and smooth this 901 is. My only complaint is that it needs a better converter. It's a nice pen at any price; at $2.75 (shipping included) it's a minor miracle.

Thanks, that's encouraging news on shipments.

Scotland has the most beautiful, colourful, picturesque, history laden landscape in the world.....It's such a shame that you can only see it through a rain soaked car window.

 

My top tip :- Don't stand up in a canoe.

Received my first Jinhao pen in 6 days from order - outstanding; inked with Sheaffer Blue and ready to give it a try this week.
