I've been reading many helpful reviews here on FPN as I get on my collecting journal, this is the first time I'm posting with a question.
Anyone have experience with the Hero 100 "Emperor" 2016 model?, as shown in this ebay posting: http://www.ebay.com/...swAAOSwAKxWWcfJ
I know that the standard Hero 100's Achilles heel is the plastic hood, which can crack, but it doesn't seem to be an issue with the 2016 model's exposed nib. Also this is a converter pen, which might (?) prolong the longevity.
Some other questions for anyone who currently own the 2016 Emperor model:
- What material is the barrel made of? What about the grip section?
- Is there any Chinese writing on the pen? pictures just show Hero engraved on a bronze-like setting
- Nib: is it really 12K gold? If so, how do they achieve the 2-tone effect?
- Is nib replaceable?
- Some measurements (length, weight) would be nice. A wrting sample is gravy.
