That pen - I MUST have at least one. I am going on the lookout. @Mech-for-i If you see a shop where they sell it - apart from Taobao where I don't have an account - please tell. Thank you.

Is that design of the fountain pen original?

 

If it is then damn, Hero has some nice designers although that offset hood might be unnecessary.

I am sure most do not get the funny part cause Hero and Rio Wine got a little marketing campaign with videos and 2D design which play on the folk jargon saying " got ink in your belly " and poke fun at it ; it really require one who had deep understanding of the home language and culture to get it ; I was checking out all their marketing materials and videos and cannot help but got a chuckle. The cocktail actually read " Hero blue bkack colour " on the bottle ...

The tag line they use here is " got ink in your belly ; I salute you the hero "

Thanks for the link!

 

I thought that the section material color would be similar to the cap & barrel but it is all shiny metallic like material so I guess I have to pass this one.
