  1. Hand on heart I was not sure about the Baoer 574 from the start. I’ve always felt that the gloss black plastic end piece on the cap just made the pen ungainly, less pleasing to the eye than many fountain pens on the market. That aside this is a really good pen. http://fountain-pens.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/B574BKL1-300x200.jpg Missus the plastic end piece the high chrome finished cap extrudes an air of class. The cartouche is a nice touch allowing personalisation on the pen. Coming in at 31 grams (with cap) the pen actually feels heavier than it is. The cap is the slip on variety with a nice satisfying ‘Click’ when located. Is at this point we find the 574 biggest problem, if you like your pens posted forget it!… You can not post this pen not matter how hard you push home the cap it just slides back off. For me this isn’t a big problem, the pen is a good length, un-posted, so fits easily into my hand and liking a lighter pen, negates any weight issue. http://fountain-pens.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/B574BKSML-300x200.jpg An attractive looking pen, once you get past the plastic end piece, with a black steel body with a chrome finished grip section which is a little small at 14mm. International standard converter or cartridge and a far better that average steel medium nib all adds up to an around well made pen. http://fountain-pens.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/B574BKL2-300x200.jpg The performance of the Baoer 574 was way above what I expected. A nice smooth flow perhaps a little wetter than I would like, a touch of feedback but by no means scratchy in any way. The surprise for me was just how much line variation was gained from a steel nib. For the price this is a very, very good pen….Just a pity about that plastic end piece. http://fountain-pens.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/b574-225x300.png Weight 31 grams capped, length 138mm capped, & 115mm uncapped. http://www.fountain-pens.co.uk/ http://www.fountain-pens.co.uk/baoer/ http://www.fountain-pens.co.uk/produces/Baoer_574_black.html
