    Baoer 051 Review

    I’ve recently started down the path of trying out Chinese pens. They’re inexpensive and can be quite handsome as well. I bought my first one a few months ago with the sole purpose of taking it apart and tinkering with it Given their low price (2,50$), I purchased two Baoer 051 from two different sellers on ebay; one black and chrome, the other mainly chrome with black stripes. Interestingly, both pens came with different nibs and feeds. Appearance & Design This pen looks good. It bears the same design as a Monteverde Impressa. It doesn’t scream bling or cheap as some other Chinese pens do. This is a pen will look good in your shirt pocket or on your desk. It’s fairly elegant However, I’m not fond of the top of the cap. I find that it’s disproportionate to the rest of the pen, especially to the bottom end. The pen comes with a #5 nib. One of the two nibs is a bit shorter than the other and looks too small on a pen this size. The grip section is quite comfortable. It’s large enough to fit your gingers. It’s tapered at the end to prevent your fingers from touching the nib. Construction & Quality Paint is chipping from grip section from one of the two pens that I purchased … and only after 1 day. The clip is very springy and quite nice. It’s attached to the top using a screw. It is far nicer than what you typically find on Chinese pens in this price range. Nib & Performance As mentioned earlier, both pens had different nibs & feeds. The first had a very scratchy and dry nib with the imprint “Iridium point Germany” on it. I polished it using 12000 grit micromesh and it is now quite smooth. The second one had a shorter nib with “Baoer” on it. This nib was fairly smooth and wet out of the box enveloppe. Conclusion Assuming that you get one with a good nib and that paint doesn’t come of the grip section (or anywhere else for that matter), this is a really good bargain. This is a good looking pen. It is well made and a pleasure to write with. I purchased this pen because I wanted to tinker … mission accomplished! I even replaced the nib with a spare Edison!
