Chinese Pens And Their "inspirations"
Posted 29 July 2015 - 04:47
Is there a running list anywhere of what pens correspond with Chinese pens that are clearly derived from classic fountain pens? If not, post pairings that you know of and I'll make a list. The only purpose it serves is novelty. Thought it'd be interesting.

Thanks, everybody! Keep them coming! I'm compiling a spreadsheet of these pens and their counterparts. I'll post it once the list is bigger.

Hero 800 -> Parker 45. Just got one of each from Todd N ... they didn't even try to make it different. (OK I take it back. The arrow clip doesn't have the feather pattern, only the outline)

Jinhao 15 with Waterman Serenite.
I just had a look at this pen, and its an odd looking fellow right enough, but I think it's a fair bit away from being a Serenite "lookalikey". Hahaha.
It’s a well kent fact that Scotland (The Land Of The Rising Water) has the most beautiful, picturesque, colourful, history laden landscape in the world.
My top tip:-

This thread, while featuring many lookalikes, is not about lookalikes, but design inspirations. Having just looked up some pictures of the Serenite, it is obvious that the Jinhao 15 is inspired by it. I still think the 15, which is one of my favorites (I own 3), is an awesome design, though.
If anyone has a spare Hero 812 in white that they're willing to part with, please PM me. I'm trying to find one for my collection.
