Pen World magazine gave me kind permission to 'reprint' Barry Gabay's article on Chinese fountain pens. You can read it here. The pens pictured in the article are from my personal collection.

A very nice read, thanks for sharing! It was also nice to see "our own" Bob Page quoted.

Stationary =/= StationEry
Sad to see that typo in a rag that should know better. ;)

Also to be picky, Honda wasn't bothered copying German motorcar designs in the 1960s - they were too busy building motorcycles! Their attack on 4-wheeled transport outside of JP began with the Civic.

Nissan otoh... their "tribute" to Mercedes engines & BMW suspension is remarkable :) very Lanbitou vs Lamy :P

Apparently the Great Firewall blocks the hisnibs site. Those in China can't view the page. It also seems to interfere with the emoticons as well. I can't even add the slam head into wall emoticon...

Likewise the misspelling of Sheaffer.  :headsmack: 

 

Didn't detract from a fascinating article, though. Thanks for sharing.

Sheaffer is actually spelled correctly. For a change. One of the oldest pen names is also one of the most misspelled.

And probably misspelled in more different ways than any other. :)

 

It's wrong in the caption on the first page of the article.

Ooof! I missed that. Schaffer, Scheaffer, Shaffer, Sceaffer...still waiting to see Shayfer.
