  1. Hello, I hope that you are all having a great weekend. I am looking for a Jinhao 505 Iron Tiny Squares Fountain Pen in stainless steel. Does anyone have any for sale for under $15? I would be willing to pay via PayPal. Please, PM me if you are interested in selling one. Many thanks, MNVB
  2. Hi, Has anyone reviewed Jinhao/Xinhao fountain pens? I have seen what appear to be some absolutely stunning examples recently. They're very cheap too (to my mind too cheap). Is this a brand to watch or to avoid? Danny

    The Simple Jinhao 611

    The Jinhao 611 is one of the several pens that I bought from ebay. They came to me shipped in a padded brown envelope rather than "coffins" or boxes. If I remember correctly, I paid no more than $7 for each pen + shipping. I purchased 3 of them because I was attracted to the simple streamline shape. I wanted a pen that would be very comfortable for someone who uses mechanical pencils because they are so straight and plain. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/uploads/imgs/fpn_1447577001__jinhao_611.jpg I liked the barrel colors that were shown in the picture of the ebay auction. One is a solid color in the red, rosy, cyan range, the others are a russet and a blue that appear to be acrylic with the depth of color that sometimes goes with that sort of plastic. All three are straight, uncharacterized barrels. They are .65oz/18.42g; 5 1/8 inches / 156.2 centimeters in length capped; 6 1/4 inches / 190.5 centimetrs posted; and .39 inches / 10 mm in diameter. The nib appears to be stainless steel. The ones that I have are fine nibs. They come with standard Jinhao converters. I had hoped that they would take international cartridges because I do not use fillers or bottled ink. I removed the plunger filler and inserted an international cartridge. It took a lot of fussing about with it to get anything to flow. The first thing I noticed was the tines of the nib were tight together. I had to use a syringe to pump water through it. It really didn't take any pressure to get the water to flow through it, just a quantity enough to fill the grip and the nib. When I finally did get the water to flow through it, the pen leaked from every possible joint. The grip is in 2 pieces and it leaked through where they are pressed together. After I got the ink flowing through it, I began to have hopes that it would work better, which it did for a short time. By the time I finished writing one full page, the pen was leaking from where the barrel threads on to the grip as well as from where the grip is pressed together. All together, I'd give the pen a 2. Perhaps it's a chance I took in buying these pens. It's possible that some are better perfomers than others. They are nice in appearance, and seemed at first impression to be of at least fair quality, but when put to the test they did not rise to the occasion. It is possible that using the filler is the answer. That remains to be seen.
  4. Good afternoon, I have a lovely Jinhao pen that I would like to offer as a Pif. I purchased the pen for my mother but it is too heavy for her very frail hands. I inked it up twice and have written a few lines with it. It writes well and has the typical Jinhao medium nib. A converter is included. Since it was purchased with the intent of giving it away, I would love to Pif it to a fellow member FPNer. Rules: You must be a Gold member of FPN, with a mailing address within CONUS. If you are interested, please reply to this thread by telling me one of your favorite ink brands or colors. You will be assigned a number. Then, on Friday night, June 17, my mother will randomly pick the number of the winner. I will then notify the lucky winner on this thread and by PM. Please let me know if you have any questions.
  5. isn't the housing, feed and nib suppose to fit together ? my recent purchased pens have this problems, some when pulled out from the housing the tines are prefect but when fit back together the tines mis-align. a few of them has perfect tines when fit in the housing but mis-align when removed out. and no matter what orientation i did the problem never solves. This has never happen to my other pens but that's because my other pens are all from japan (my Pilot and sailors) well known for their excellent supreme QC. hence my question / cry for help - where does the problem lies, housing inside uneven or nib tail uneven ? - any method to solve this matter ? Just in case anyone want to know I am having said problems above with my Delta DV OS, Monte verde Regatta sport, Jinhao 159, vinconti homosapien Dark age. For such expensive pen (jinhao aside) you expect it to work well ... even my preppy write better !! I don't think i will look/buy another pen from them. attached photo are my delta nib after insert into the housing the gap in between becomes wide open!

  7. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew of any pressure-type (squeeze) converters that could be used with a Jinhao X450, like the Con-20 for Pilot. The screw-type converter that came with the pen seems to prevent the ink from flowing as well as it should and every now and then I have to force it a tad by screwing it down a bit. I'm also wondering if a regular international pre-inked cartridge would be better than the scew-type refillable ones. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
  8. I've purchased a number of Jinhao pens (and a few Baoers) in recent months via eBay. I like the way they write (with one or two exceptions) but they seem to dry out very quickly. (My Parker 51, TWSBI Mini, and Pilot Varsities can go a long time without use and start right up. I haven't even found how long is too long!) Generally, re: my Jinhao's and Baoers: If not used for a day or two, they'll start hard.If not used for 2 or 3 days, they'll need priming (twisting the convertor or running the nib under water)They seem to do a little better when stored horizontally rather than vertically.No, it's not an issue of the ink "sticking" to the rear of the converter because I've gotten into the habit of shaking them downward before use.I don't think it's a broken inner lid--they still have a satisfying snap when opening and closing. I also opened one to verify and the inner cap was fine. So, is this merely the reality of cheap pens not sealing particularly well? I've seen some folks talking about the converters being (partly?) to blame. Can y'all advise and help me improve this issue? Thanks! Dylan Postscript: I'm using Jinhao x450s, x750s, 159, and Baoer 801, 508.

    New Goulet Pens Black Nib

    I just received one of the New Goulet Pens black nibs in the mail (this one is a 1.1)! I threw it onto my Jinhao X750, loaded up some Private Reserve Ebony Blue, and did a quick test on some Kokuyo Sarasara paper. What can I say? This is one excellent nib. I usually have to do a bit of tuning with JoWo nibs, but this one is perfect right out of the box (or rather the tiny zip lock bag). Crsip, true to size lines with a nice even flow. A good looking nib that writes really well and costs $10 less than the Monteverde black stub nib. I'm a happy customer! I was so excited to try out this nib that I didn't even dilute the Ebony Blue. Usually it shows up as a blue/green/black, but without dilution it just looks black. Oh well, I'll just write a ton with this pen and fill it back up with some properly diluted Ebony Blue.
  10. Just sharing pic of nib on a silver X750. Took about a minute to swap it out. Pretty tight fit. Now just need to work on the flow of ink.
  11. Hello, I am new to the world of fountain pens. I've recently bought a couple of Jinhao X750 pens. Those two were the last ones in stock. I'd like to add some more to my collection but not able to find any shop selling them. I've checked online as well. Online shops sell them at a much higher price (At a retailer a x750 costs around 250/- but online shops sell them for around 600-1200/- each). Does anybody know shops in mumbai which sell Jinhao pens?
  12. Hi all I noticed that for many Jinhao and other Chinese makes, for the same model, the price can be $1,$3 ... $10. For those who sampled the offerings at various price points, does the price correlates with quality/defects/etc? Cheers, Erez

    Brown - Jinhao

    Jinhao is popular chinese FP brand. They offer also ink in cartridges in five colors: black, blue, brown, green and red. I must say these inks are really well behaved, saturated and rather nice. I don't think that Jinhao produces their inks, they just label other manufacturer's inks. I lack knowledge to judge which ones? I would be interested to know, so if you happen to possess some knowledge / insight on chinese ink market, I'd love to hear it. What's cool is the fact they sell mix of cartridges so that you can try few colors for less money. Also the price is really low (1 $ shipped), so you don't risk anything. Brown has nice flow and is well behaved in every way. The color has too much red to my taste though.

    $30-50 Pens

    Recently, my parents have said that If I get straight a's, I will get $100 to spend on pens. Right now, my pre-prepared cart on goulet has a rhodia dotpad, a jinhao 159+ goulet nib, a faber-castell basic, and a twsbi eco. I was thinking of replacing one of the pens to buy some more ink, as all I have now is noodler's black and a set of black-cap winsor and newton inks that I don't trust. If I had to get rid of a pen, which should I get rid of?

  17. Hi fountain pen lovers, I've just posted a review on Youtube about issues I've had with Jinhao X750 pens and what I think of them. Here is the link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXJd6JUHX3s Cheers! John
  18. I have a few 886s and give them away to people who express an interest in my fountain pens. Has anyone found replacement/alternative nibs for the 886? The nib is small, not #6, but I am not sure what. I enjoy writing with these pens, but would like to have a source for nibs in a range of line widths. Would appreciate your ideas and experience.
  19. I've already ordered this beautiful Jinhao pen, since I think it looks stunning. I have no idea about its quality, but for the price I payed, I'm willing to take the risk. However, I'm curious what other people are saying about this model, but I wasn't able to proper identify it. On AliExpress it was listed as Jinhao Ceramic Cloisonne, but I haven't found too many references outisde AliExpress, so I'm guessing I do not have its exact name. Can anyone recognize it? http://i.imgur.com/xMtf5Rm.jpg http://i.imgur.com/w18inA7.jpg
  20. I was wondering about super flex nibs so i both a pack of G nibs and tried it on my Jinhao x450 and x740 and i must say i was quite surprised with the results, i am attaching a scanned page and a picture of the pens, the feed did keep up, but if you write fast than i am sure the feed will have trouble. i must say that once installed it is very very hard to get it out. i have used black n red notebook paper, which for me is really really good, it is as good as rhodia.
  21. The main Jinhao pens, 159, x450, x750, and many other Chinese pens come fitted with M steel #6 nibs. I have lots of stock Chinese pens and I am looking to upgrade some with #6 gold nibs. Who sells #6 gold nibs? EF, F, M, B and 1.1 but particularly F. I'd consider new or used, provided they are 14k or more gold and in good working order. I realize gold isn't necessarily a better nib material than steel, but I have ton of these pens and I want some variety in the nibbage. I've tried Google. Any ideas?
  22. I got a Jinhao X250 yesterday, after a long waiting for about two months. In fact, I always thought that I would never get the packet, but voila, there it came to my mailbox yesterday. It came with a simple envelope with a layer of bubble wrap inside. To my disappointment is that this kind if "protection" didn't really protect my pen; there is a scratch (or a nick) on the finial of the barrel during the shipping Oh, well. Can't really complain, because I paid for only IDR. 75,000 (equivalent to US$ 5) with free shipping. This is quite a heavy pen (36 grams) and i like the weight on my palm. I enjoy heavy pens with the cap posted, but not for a long writing session. The cap itself is pretty heavy, so it will put the balance off the barrel. I tried to ink it, but i found that the converter didn't really work. The suction pressure is not enough to pull the ink up, and I only got little ink inside. My disappontment seemed to add up when I found that the ink dripped from the nib. I can conclude that there is a quality control problem in this particular pen. I have changed it with a Hero aerometric converter, which can hold more ink than the Jinhao cartridge. It is a standard international converter, so it fit the pen perfectly. This pen has a medium nib (smooth, I can say), and it puts wet ink to the paper, which i like from a fountain pen. Am I satisfied: -with the pen in general? Yes -with the quality control? No -with the price? Yes Will I order some more? Definitely
  23. Hello Everyone, I've been looking through this site for many years but only gained the courage to join today I went to a school from ages 9-13 where use of a fountain pen was compulsory. The pen of the day was Parker - but I don't remember owning one at that age. Biros were banned from the school. I quite liked that we had to use a fountain pen. Back then, it was one of the things that set us apart from other local state schools along with having to wear a uniform and learn a musical instrument. I've been fussy about stationery ever since, but only linked my nerdy relationship to pens and paper back to my middle school very recently. I like to have the perfect pens, the perfect inks and the perfect writing pads - perfect for me that is! I don't mind others using different stationery and I don't dictate. I don't need to own an expensive pen to enjoy writing with a fountain pen. Currently, I have some fantastic Chinese pens (Duke Ruby & Jinhao Bookworm Celluloid fountain pens), a lovely Cross Beverley White and a decadent Grifos Cappuccino. I like highly pigmented inks, so my blacks would be Aurora or Lamy. However, I prefer purples/violets though and I'm currently enjoying Diamine Shimmer Purple Pazazz in my Cross & Grifos pens and Private Reserve Tanzanite in my Duke Ruby. When I'm unable to write with a fountain pen (I often have to write on self duplicating paper) I revert to gel ink pens because of the depth of colour of the ink. My writing pads for home and work are A4 Black n Red Wirebound 90gsm notebooks. I don't really have a problem with the ink seeping through to the other side of the page. Now that I've exposed the true extent of my nerdiness, I'll sign off. Many thanks!

    Hello From New York

    Hello, everyone. I'm Marcus. I am new to FPN. I have enjoyed fine writing instruments since I was in college - I'm not in my mid-thirties. I'm not an expert by any means. I'm not even a collector. I just enjoy handwriting. I have a little bit of graphomania. I really enjoy writing with fountain pens. My current inventory include Waterman Carene, Parker Sonnet, Pilot Kakuno and Hero 007. My ink of choice right now is Pilot. I am not particular about paper as long as it doesn't bleed. I don't mind writing on regular printer paper, as long as I have something behind it for the bleeding. I prefer Asian fine nibs or Western extra fine nibs. I look forward to meeting you all in the forums and learning from everyone.
  25. My obsession with fountain pens began with a 25 cent Wearever circa 1954, but really took hold in junior high school when I purchased one of the first Parker 45 convertibles in 1961, which I still have. In the intervening years I've owned a lot of Parkers: 45, 51, 61, 75 and lost, replaced and repaired those a couple of times. These were follwed by a couple of Scheaffer's, two Watermann's with 18K nibs (neither of which I like, and never use), a couple of Aurora's, Namiki, Cross, and Pelikans of various models and price points. My two favorites have been that Parker 45 and a Pelikan M200, until about two weeks ago. I saw something online about the Pilot Metropolitan. I hadn't bought a fountain pen in several years but why not I thought. It was under $20. And now I find myself utterly entranced again. I am in love with this pen! I've been glued to Youtube videos and pen sites ever since. I never realized that I could actually fiddle with my pens to adjust them to me. Who knew there are so many cheap pens that are so excellent and there are so many people online who also write exclusively with fountain pens. In the last 72 hours, I've purchased a Jinhao 450, Serwex 1362, and a Noodler's Ahab Flex based upon those videos and sites and the information I've learned. I've also bought extra nibs and ebonite feed, and a pilot converter for the Metropolitan, and spent less money for all of that than I did for one of those Watermann's I hate! I'm looking forward to receiving each and playing with all of them.
