I'm laid up for a bit. My medical team has instructed me to take it easy and take pleasure in small things during my convalescence.
I'm taking that to mean purchasing inexpensive fountain pens will speed my recovery. In my interpretation, it's pretty much what the doctor has ordered.
Here's where I need a bit of help. I'm interested in a Wing Sung 6359 (or possibly more than one ... all things in moderation, of course). But I strongly prefer those with the black clip over those with the chrome clip.
Problem is ... listings on eBay aren't clear on the matter. Many sellers are using images of pens with chrome clips and black clips in the same listing.
I have reached out to one seller but he does not appear to understand the distinction (so far). And I would like to place an order soon, so a pen (or two) has a chance of arriving before I am up and about again.
At current eBay prices ... it's not much of a gamble. But I already have some Lamy Al-Stars with shiny chrome clips. I would like to try a Wing Sung 6359 (or two) with a black clip.
Are the ones with black clips new stock? Anyone had any luck buying the precise model I'm after?
Any advice appreciated.
