This is my third review and a casual one. So where do i begin, to the part where its a look alike of you know which pen  :P

 

Jinhao Shark series fountain pen has a tripod grip that's comfortable for someone who would hate safari type section. I have used lamy safari and found it to be okay, no complaints at all regarding section grip.

BUILD AND CONSTRUCTION QUALITY: No brainer, its a platic pen, a knock off, still its built well. Neither solid nor fragile, just in between and that's too good for the price. I bought a couple of these at once i saw these pens on aliexpress. These are now available on ebay too. It's a c/c pen.

SECTION: Writing specifically is a plesant experience thanks to its material quality, its a really smooth yet comfortable section. not slippery and not too harsh for long writing sessions. Personally, i'm using this pen for improving my handwriting, especially maintaining a regular font size in lower case letters.

NIB: The jinhao 0.5mm 'F' nib is buttery smooth and nearly no feedback, while the 0.38mm hooded type nib is a pleasant experiece too. smooth, toothy, will remind of pilot F nib. IMG_20170727_124955.jpg

OVERALL EXPERIENCE: I'm happy with this pen, those who complain about the plumix cap not being too secure, this one gets rid of that issue. Eyedropper use is possible, its a all plastic body pen with no hole at the end of the barrel. I have used this pen for few days and i'm enjoying using this pen for long writing sessions. Probably a student pen considering the grip section. Nib swapping is easily possible, kanwrite (Indian users :D ) nib especially stub one is going to make this one even better.

GO AHEAD BUY IT !!! $1.3, that's it.

THANK YOU for letting me know about this pen! I imagine the nibs are as good as the other Jinhaos I bought recently. And my sister, who has never shared my FP enthusiasm, loves sharks. I immediately bought her one of these (hooded nib/XF) in white (great white! since I couldn't find a grey one) from eBay, along with a pack of 10 black cartridges for about $2.50US shipped. I bought a matching pen for myself; great that it has an ink window. (A bright red would be fun/funny.) Can't wait for this pen to arrive. And I think my sister will love it and finally appreciate fountain pens.

Nice review!  These are really cute pens!  I'm wondering if you have tried Jinhao 992, and how does the shark pens compare to the 992?

Cute pen.  Nice pen to get children involved with learning to write with a fountain pen.

Much better in terms of built and construction. Section is very comfortable and ergonomic.
Nib is same as 992, same F nib that writes medium like.

Hooded nib writes smooth with a pleasant feedback. She woukd definitely love it.
Also the nibs are excellent, same as 992 F and extra fine nib of jinhao is same in this one.

Definitely, it does scream student pen straight from its look. The section is very nice, for its price it's a great pen.

Got 4 of the EF nib pens for me and my 3 younger sisters. Now for the wait!
Even the "I-will-never-use-a-weird-pen" sister caved in when she saw this, hope she'll like it enough to stick to FPs :D

I really like this pen including the tapered grip. It is comfortable to hold and use.

 

The only thing I don't care for is the lack of a clip. (I've already managed to lose one of mine for this reason.) If they could redesign the fin to also be a functional clip, I'd love this pen.

This is the first video review i have ever made. hope it satisfies most queries as to the end result i.e. performance of the pen.

well i was looking for a black one too. this one looks great. also there's a grey color out there too. overall 12 colors, this plus the nib performance and the pricing makes it a must buy.

Enjoy it as a clipless pen. Yes, for some clip is a must if one has to clip to the copy or a their pockets.

But still I'd like this pen the way it is.

Although, there is a penton pen, plumix knock off with a functional clip.
