Hi, I bought several BAOER 388 pens to have as giveaways to my students as encouragement. I have grown to like using them at school with my students, so I’m looking for replacement or alternative nibs to have as a backup in case a pen takes a nose dive onto the concrete floor and have the opportunity to try different nibs. Because of the environment and as my students have learning difficulties, I am not looking for expensive or custom nibs. Any ideas gratefully received. Thanks JohnD aka NgunnawalJack
My latest extravagant indulgence has arrived at last, a Baoer 388 for which I had to splash out a massive £1.97 - delivered. Rediculous!! And what a great little pen it is - I can't fault its appearance, balance, feel in the hand and so on, but the nib is truly horrible. Nothing wrong with its looks - well, I could live with it anyway, considering what I paid for it. Nothing wrong with the ink flow either, but scratchy? Scratchy is not the word. Abrasive would be more like it. Maybe I've just got a particularly bad example, That doesn't matter in the slightest though because the only purpose of buying the pen was purely to find out if a Baoer 388 can be upgraded with a Bock nib. Not a week goes by when I don't get asked if a Baoer will take a Bock nib, so I decided it was time to find out for myself. It can. A size 5 Bock nib to be precise. I had to remove the Bock from its housing and fit it in the Baoer housing, but the geometry of the two nibs is identical and the new one is a perfect fit.
Hello guys, Hope all of you are having a lovely day! I've been wanting to experience some Chinese pens and I really liked the design of these two pens. However, in regards of performance, which one would you recommend? If you have any other suggestions, I'd really appreciate your help! )
jobodine posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopAs I have a few spare Baoer 388 to play around with (i.e. less than 3 .$ US a pop on ebay ) , I am planning to convert it to an eye-dropper pen . The reason is simple enough : the Baoer has pronounced matching lips between the grip section and the pen body . It is quite easy to fit an O-ring in between . I am curious to know if it's safe to allow direct contact between the metal pen body and ink in the long run ? I have seen many eye-dropper pens with plastic or non-metal pen body and wonder if ink corrosion might be the case in metal fountain pen ? Please advise and comment .
