Our good friend Oneill has very kindly sent me the first photo of some of his Jinhao collection, a few of which are no longer available.

This pic also includes his beloved Abelone pens, and there are definitely a few here that I wouldn't mind getting my hands on.  :lol:

Oneill has promised me more pics and some close up shots, which I'll post in due course.

It's actually his wife Joy who is on Camera duty, and I thank both her and Oneill for their sterling efforts.

 

Our man must think that at 91 Photography jobs are beneath him.......and rightly so.  :D

Well played Joy.  :thumbup:

It’s a well kent fact that Scotland (The Land Of The Rising Water) has the most beautiful, picturesque, colourful, history laden landscape in the world.

It’s just a shame that you can only look at it through a rain soaked car window.
 
Every cloud though,  If there was no rain, there’d be no RAINBOWS.

 

My top tip:-

If you are walking the dog through mountain bike country.....don't wear headphones.

Reading Oneill's posts he seems very passionate about his Chinese pens. Being a retired magistrate I'm sure his pens could tell some very interesting stories given the chance.

I'm sure if he wanted to, he could.  :lol:

The more I get to know him, the more I admire him.

Believe it or not, his other hobby, is (at 91 yrs old) combing the beaches with a metal detector. :yikes: I love his passion and energy.  :notworthy1:

I've probably given about the same away over the last year or 2.

At 1 point I had 5 500s and 5 x450s  :lol:

Ian  in your photo above number 3 first row is the silver version of the pen that the Australian cricketer Max Walker who sadly psased away earlier this year used to brag about being his Daily user which he bought for a couple of dollars,also I see my Favourite pen The Abalone  which  is second from the end of the first row,if you like Jinhao;s you really must have one of these, I have three.

The Abelone is a nice ce pen Oneill, I'll need to get the bigger 650 version at some point, however, my favourite Jinhao is the fabulous 217 second from the right on the bottom row.
An outstanding pen.

Hi Ian, thank you so much for putting the photos on which is much appreciated, How many thousand pens do you have at the moment and are they in a spare room? Do you have SPRINKLERS IN THE ROOF? or do you sit and watch over them?Oneill.

Having been born across the road from the Harton Lunatic Asylum where the famous Catherine Cookson was in service in C.O Durham UK,Joy said to me one day ,you should write your lifestory its very interesting, SO because I am very well trained I sat down that night and wrote 14  very long pages  and then decided that I was not the prolific author that Joy imagined me to be, since then I have added a few pages, how many pages are required for a Best Seller? You will all get a free copy as soon as it is finished!!!

As a Magistrate  serving at Port Adelaide in the early seventies the lovely gentleman serving as my senior was Mr Sam Ward who would always say before we went into court, we were having a woodbine at the time,he would always say to me that we were privileged to be in the position that we were in but must always ensure ,That Justice Is Served to the person who was appearing before us and I am sure that we paid respect to that point.Justice must always be seen to have been done.

Brian and Joy have sent me some further pics of Oneills beloved Jinhaos.

There are 1 or 2 there that I'd really like to get my grubby mitts on.  :lol:

Some of these I haven't seen before, and they are very impressive indeed.

 

Thanks Oneill, and yes, I do trust you.  ;)

Hahaha

I haven't been into fountain pens as long as you Bryan (3 years 2 weeks to be exact) but yes, my fps are precious, every last one of them.

I have 42 on my desk at any given time, and the rest are safe in pen wallets, safely out of reach of any "footerers, and miscreants"  :D

Hi Ian, I cant see any of the pens that you marked would you be so kind as to mark them again,
Oneill. I cant remember how long I have been editing websites for pen makers but it must be in
the middle ages.I now edit the pages of a very good Japanese Pen seller called engeika,you
should see my Japanese pens You may not be aware that the Japanese have been Nibmeisters for
years and have become very good at it,I have a pen which can write Hard or Soft at a touch of
the button It is called the Justas 95.Fortunately they are passing on their skills to their sons
which is just great Have a look at some of their offerings they are superb.regards. Oneill

Hi Ian. would you be so kind as to send me a personal email with the Jinhaos you would like marked so that I can put them aside instead of selling them.I have just realised that maybe I have more Japanese than I ever imagined we will have to get the photographer Lady to take a photo of them all soon,regards Oneill.
