I just typed a lot of stuff about this pen and my browser lost it. :-/

On to the important stuff. I'll come back to write more about it (again) when I have some more time.

The 508 is a great pen Magnus.
I had a lovely polished blue one, but my brother in law was interested in getting into fps and he chose the 508 when I offered him a pen from my pile.
He has been well impressed with it, and it's his daily writer....whoohoo another convert.

I'll need to be getting myself a replacement.


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.

It’s just a shame that you can only look at it through a rain soaked car window.
Every cloud though,  If there was no rain, there’d be no RAINBOWS.


My top tip:-

If you are walking the dog through mountain bike country.....don't wear headphones.

My tastes have been running towards finer nibs so now every time I look at a Chinese pen anymore, I'm starting to mentally add the cost of a fine (or even EF) nib upgrade to it. Since I don't like the feel of this one in my hand, I'm not going to upgrade it. I'll keep it around for those who get curious about FP's as one I don't mind giving away.

Now I just need to find a fine nib upgrade for Chinese pens that I enjoy as much as JoWo's.

I have  most of the Baoer models. Baoer , Duke and Picasso's are pens that come with great nibs though Baoers are the most cost effective of these three. Absolutely no hit or miss with Baoers all models are excellent writers.
