I bump into a few much younger chaps today at our regular hangout ( aka the local stationary store ) and as usual the topic turn to fountain pens and while they sample some of my Chinese pens , a young lady pop the question " what's your favorite vintage models " to be frank I am caught off guarded, I almost spell out " Hero 100 of course " but then I realize Hero 100 is still cataloged and manufactured and there were so many variation of this particular pen that it might be over generalized to just say " Hero 100 "

 

some discussion and the group finally figure might be the Q should be split into 2 or may be 3 or 4, basically the young ladies ( and guys too ) figure the Q. should be :

 

- what's your favorite vintage Chinese hooded nib fountain pen

- what's your favorite vintage Chinese open nib fountain pen

- what's your favorite vintage Chinese special nib fountain pen

 

and of course

 

- what's your favorite vintage Chinese fountain pen

 

Interesting discussion ensue and needless to say I have not really made up a definite answer but I do have some candidate ; so for academic and discussion, what's your take on these questions

These are excellent questions that I think would be very helpful for those just getting into Chinese fountain pens.

I especially like dividing between hooded and open nibs, because their writing experiences tend to be quite different.

I haven't tried any Chinese pens older than 90s models, so I'm eager to hear what transpires in these questions.
