I just encountered this video which provides a brief overview and a bit of background on the recent deluge of models carrying the Wing Sung brand name: https://www.youtube....h?v=MmZkgroOGrk.

Thanks for posting this, I enjoyed it.  I am currently using a Wing Sung 3008 piston filler that uses Lamy nibs--- in fact I have a 1.1 nib on it now.  A nice pen at a great price!

That clear demonstrator WS 613 looks awesome! Where can I get one?
I'd imagine it's eyedropper-able?

Gentlemen,

 

I must admit I am guilty of that video, and am glad that it is of some value.

 

The re-engineered modern 613 is quite available on eBay, although at Victo's webshop hosted by Taobao, it is offered as one with a clear section in a variety of colours, with a clear barrel thrown in. Personally I would not want to try using it as eyedropper though.


No, I am not going to list my pens here.

Thanks for the video link, very nice information. My Wing Sung 3008s are on the way.

Very informative video, thanks to Seele for clearing up some things I was confused about. Thanks to OP for sharing. My 3003 and 3008 are due to arrive next week probably. I'm seriously considering the 618. It would be my first hooded nib, I'm curious about the wetness and ink flow of a hooded nib in comparison to a non-hooded nib.

This video is brilliant!~

 

Seele, you should consider writing a book to help straighten us out on all the Chinese brands and models,

like a Chinese version of Lambrou's books. Call it something like "Fountain Pens of China" haha. I'd buy a copy!!

The problem is the very limited availability of verified period information; many of the secondary sources can be said as less than reliable, to put it mildly.

Yeah, I can see what you mean. There's not much documentation out there for Chinese pens period, so you'd have more than your work cut out for you.

You'd probably need a Fulbright Scholarship or something to go around and gather materials and interviews in China.  :P

At any rate, your posts and videos are extremely helpful!

 

It looks like what I'd want to do is get a Victo Wing Sung pen and swap the nib with one of the WEC nibs with more tipping.

What's the seller info for Victo on Taobao?

Truthpil, this seller has Pilot-type nibs by both Victo and WSE; hope it's of some use.

 

There are other sellers but if you are getting multiple units, this might be a good start, but please shop around.

 

This is Victo's webshop hosted by Tmall.
