Fresh off the interwebs for your delectation and amazement. Usual disclaimer - I have no connection with these groovy products. I just thought the China Pen fans, including myself, might be interested.

I have no idea how to purchase off TaoBao/Tmall as I speak no Mandarin. If anyone know, please do tell.

I agree. Interestingly they are all metal. If you look closely at the blue one at the top you can see that the pattern is not printed on the pen, but is three dimensional.

 

Looks like Chinese pen designers are breaking new ground. A very interesting development.

They are well not exactly new though I would not say they are anywhere being old either. Metal construction on fountain pens in China had always been viewed more favorably than rest of the world. Customers there consider good metal construction as sign of quality and robustness ( which they think even the most expensive of ebonite ; acrylic ; ir celluloid lacks ) with justification I shall say and thats why brushed steel and brass is still very much in vogue

Well. It's true that China has long used metal. But not in this way, with new designs. Up to now, in my limited experience, I see a lot of derivitive, repetetive similarity across manufacturers. Here we are seeing something different.  A new inovative direction.

I have noted these too, but have not ventured into ordering on Taobao despite one may give it a go with googletranslate...

 

live in you has other models out which you can check out on https://frankunderwa...11/09/liy-mitu/

 

The first model IMO is in resin

 

the pen I am after however is this one

 

one issue mentioned by the review seems to be the section of this pen is somewhat narrow

A handsome, clean, simple, elegant specimen. Understated. Doesn't call attention to itself, Lovely. I shall seek

Taobao assistance.
