  1. I have been testing a new Asvine V126 Plunger-Filler demonstrator fountain pen that I purchased from an Ebay seller in China. Here are some photos: Here are my early impressions: I used the plunger filler mechanism to fill the pen with blue-black ink. A single push inward drew up only about one-third of the capacity of the mechanism. I did not try multiple plunges at that point, as I was curious how much a single plunge would draw in and did not want to waste ink just to test the pen as a writer. The pen feels great in the hand. It weighs 28g with the ink at 1/3 capacity. The cap itself contributes 9g to that total. The cap can be posted securely at the end of the barrel. The nib is a gold-plated medium steel nib and has a bit of give, which makes the writing experience aesthetically pleasing. The pen wrote immediately and smoothly, and over the days it continues to do the same, with no hard-starts. The acrylic of the body and cap feels to be of high quality and durability. The clip is firm but has enough natural give easily to fit into a pocket. So far, so good. I really like this pen, which is a pleasant writer. I'd be interested in the experiences of others who have used this pen or its equivalent (i.e., non-demonstrator). In particular, what has been your experience with how much ink gets drawn into the pen with the plunger-filler?
  2. Hi, I just got an Asvine V126. It is a vacuum filler and almost exactly the same size and shape as the Pilot Custom 823 which is so expensive. The big difference is the blue frosted acrylic material the pen is made out of, and of course it just has a steel nib rather than the Custom 823's gorgeous 14k nib. It is really quite attractive, and seems much more substantial than the Wing Sung 699 that everyone talks about as a clone. I had a 699 but it almost immediately broke--the barrel cracked. This seems better made to me and it writes quite smoothly. The quality reminds me more of PenBBS pens. I like it, although I am not a big fan of vacuum filling pens--this goes for the Pilot Custom 823. Don't get me wrong, the Pilot Custom 823 has a much smoother nib. It glides across the page, while the Avine pen has some feedback and absolutely no flex. The Custom 823 bounces a bit when you write, the way that lovely gold nibs do and it has some variation. I did a short review on YouTube of the Asvine at:

    Asvine P50

    Asvine released a wrench for their fountain pens. Inadvertently, I think they unveiled their next model, the P50, a piston-filler with the same piston knob shape as the P36.
