Chinese pens are dream stuff for cash starved lesser mortals not yet initiated into the adoration rituals of high end pens ! I had purchase a lot of Chinese pens in last two years from e-bay, 40% of those were stolen in transit and 60% made it- I can live with that but not again-I don't buy from e-bay anymore. My last ship visited a Couple of mid-north China ports and I could buy some items in person, from so called Brick & Morter [ modern] stores and was too happy to a) lay hands on them immediately and B) not lose the 40%. Bought some nibs and ink pumps too, and could not convey to them what is a feeder! I have put some pictures in the following- I will write about each these as I have some more time. Meanwhile , may I request Chinese pen lovers to visit my old and very humble blog at

 

<< http://www.soumitrap...ns.blogSpot.com >> I have listed amny fine Chinese pens there.  These ae the recent pics.

Sorry to hear about your experiences there. I don't think it's a problem with ebay, but more to do with the Indian postal service.

I've bought many pens from China and HK and never once had one go missing.

 

Great reviews btw! I'm considering the ivory coloured x450 too - sounds like it's it's extremely good value for money
