Here it is... a somewhat short review, with rather a lot of pics to tell the story. Rushing round Daiso, on the way out, noticed something somewhat familiar on the way to the checkout, snagged it for leisurely consideration later...

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you, the Rosso Bianco!

Nice sturdy matte black cardboard box.

It says 'RB' for Rosso Bianco on the clip, see! And Rosso Bianco on the band!

But wait... here's one I prepared earlier...!

Comes with a slim cartridge, black, not b-b as it says on the box, of a variety I've never seen before. Might I guess it bears a passing resemblance to... a Jinhao cartridge?

But does it do what it says on the tin (box)?

Nice spot! I love exploring Daiso to see what they have at the moment. It's been anything from a really nice low-end Sailor to a no-name Chinese pen that also was quite a nice writer to ... now this!

So, if I understand correctly,it is a jinhao x750 with an EF nib? I NEED one of those because the x750s body Is great but I hate broad nibs.

Just buy a nemosine EF or knox or goulet EF nib. You're spoiled for choice when it comes to #6 nibs.

 

I personally think that red and gold finish on the 450/750 is one of my favorite fountain pen finishes ever, right up there with stacked celluloid used in my vacumatic and my old visconti divina metro.
