So the challenge is for us to describe your up to two each of our favourite and least favourite Chinese pens. Do give some reasons so that others can learn more about the pens. These reasons can be personal, rather than due to manufacturing or design. Here are mine for now:
Favourite: Caliarts Ego 2
Almost identical to the Twsbi Eco in size (only realised when I put the pens side by side), this pen comes with a clear feed and piston mechanism, as well as an EF and F nib. It looks more refined than the over-chunky Twsbi and writes smoothly. Went on to get many more pieces of the pen.
Second favourite: Penbba 323 in red ice
This is an addictive pen brand for sure, and it will be challenging to get just one. I now have three, one each of the 308, 309 and 323. Another 309 is on order. The shape of the pen is unique and I enjoy its light weight and lack of a huge step down from the barrel. It can be used with the included conveter (seems to be proprietary but I thought I read that the Parker one fits) or made into an eyedropper, thanks to the two o-rings.
Least favourite: Kaco Sky
Okay, don't hate me but I didn't realise that the pen had a rounded triangular section that is a little wide. I've never really bonded with pens that have triangular grips due to the way I hold my pens. Most people will not find this to be an issue for them, and I can only blame myself for not looking hard enough at the photos.
