Does anyone know anything about the Lignan company?  I was lucky enough to win a pen by them in a generous PIF, and can't find out anything about the pen.  It writes very nicely in an EF nib, but an EF that is broader than most (which surprises me in a pen I believe is Asian). An old thread on the forum said the marque was a sub-marque of the Hero company, but I don't know much about them either!

 

I like knowing a little bit about my pens, so I'd appreciate any information y'all can share.  Thanks.

That's a Lingmo Lorelei in aluminum.   Search the forums, there are many, many threads on that maker and pen.

OK as jekostas puts it, this is the Lingmo Lorelei in the brushed aluminum finish ; it had noting to do with Hero. Its marketed by Shanghai JD, the pen was originally released in thermo injection plastic ( clear , white and blue demo ), then late with turned acrylic, and yet later with Demonstrator finish with colored end finale and the Aluminum finish version is introduced might be around a year or so ago

Thank you! I had misplaced my glasses and misread the name.  Now that I've read up on the Lorelei, I'm not surprised I like the pen.  I have not had any scratchiness issues with it, though I think the EF seems a bit broader than say a Pilot EF does.
