In hopes of springing Spring . . .  here is a PIF (with postage included) for a Baoer 516 with a custom-ground steel nib. It was originally described as a stub but this nib seems to be finer than that, and it delivers noticeable feedback. I believe that the body of this pen is black lacquer over brass, which makes it feel substantial. The nib and trim are silver-colored. The pen measures 5 1/2" with its snap-on cap, and 4 3/4" when it's uncapped. It comes with a Baoer (piston-style) converter. A few photos are included.

I have used this Baoer for several months and it's a fun writer, but I need to make some room in my pen box for a few new experiments. So if this pen sounds like something you would like to try out, reply to this thread before the end of this month. I will collect the replies and draw one out of the hat (a handsome fedora) on February 28th and post the winner here. Good luck everyone!

If you can send me a PM with your address, I will put this Baoer into the post for you!

 

Thank you, everyone, for your interest.  May another pen show up here in PIF-land soon :)

Shinso Hito--  Did you ever receive the Baoer 516? I hope you will let me know if it did not reach you. I can try to follow up on it from here. If it did reach you, I hope it's working out with its new converter?    Best wishes.  ~M

I did get the pen. Thank you very much for the trouble, and also including another pen as well!

 

This is one of my favourite quotes, there is also a translation, my english isn't very good but I had to turn the nib the other way to write it, also my writing isn't so good but it fits it's purpose. If it isn't so easily readable this says :

 

"Man is an animal that makes bargains : no other animal does this ~ no dog exchanges bones for another" and is a quote from an English person called Adam Smith!

Thank you, Shinso Hito, especially for the great writing sample and quote in two languages.  A wonderful return gift, I would say!

Your cursive is a great deal better than mine, and I'm a native speaker of 'Murican English.
