  1. I was surprised to find a "Hero 3035" pen with the shape of a "Baoer 3035". https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001036409271.html I am regularly searching for Baoer 3035 to find two missing colors (blue and a kind of brushed metal). The pens have meanwhile arrived and are all inked up to make sure they write. And: they are very good pens. The only "problem" for me is that the nib is not an EF nib. It took me months to find the red Baoer 3035. The two missing colors - if anybody sees them, please send me an alert.
  2. Has anyone of you tried to remove the nib of a Baoer 3035 or of the Hero 3035 clone? I need a finer nib in these pens: https://www.instagram.com/p/CLBtVFADfew/ https://www.instagram.com/p/CKnAk0ZjY8c/
  3. I use a Waterman Apostrophe rollerball with a Schneider Topball 850 eurosize refill. Sites like AliExpress offer quite a lot of refills that are sold as Jinhao, Baoer or Hero refills for what seems to be very low prices (even with shipping from China). Is it possible to use these refills in eurosize rollerball of a Waterman rollerball? Are refills from Jinhao, Hero or Baoer (in general) good value compared to eurosize refills from Schneider or Schmidt? What are your opinions about these Chinese refills?
  4. I laughed today because I got some extra converters in the mail and they came in a jinhao box and I open up the box and get some baoer branded converters. I have ordered from this seller on aliexpress before and got a slightly different converter last time. I was wondering if anyone had any input on which chinese pen brand has the best converters. Should I stick to only using jinhao converters in jinhao pens, etc? The Jinhao converters hold the most ink but have no agitator (in pic related I added a small ball bearing to act as one) The baoer converter has an agitator (spring in one, smal
  5. In hopes of springing Spring . . . here is a PIF (with postage included) for a Baoer 516 with a custom-ground steel nib. It was originally described as a stub but this nib seems to be finer than that, and it delivers noticeable feedback. I believe that the body of this pen is black lacquer over brass, which makes it feel substantial. The nib and trim are silver-colored. The pen measures 5 1/2" with its snap-on cap, and 4 3/4" when it's uncapped. It comes with a Baoer (piston-style) converter. A few photos are included. I have used this Baoer for several months and it's a fun writer, but I ne

    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 Chines
  7. 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! )
  8. Hi, I've come across these two pens and was hoping someone could provide their comparative experience with both pens. I've gone over reviews of both and both seem fine. Which over the other should I get though? Or are they virtually identical? For personal criteria, I like the looks of both. They're cheap pens and they're not "flashy". They also seem to have just the right size. I've borrowed the Jinhaos of friends and while they write well (if a bid broad-ish) they are too large and heavy and I'm not much of a fan of their designs. I have a Baoer 801 (Vector copy) and I like it. Writes ve
  9. Well... Today, my aunt flew from Beijing to Australia and brought with her the largest expansion to my collection,ever. I had asked for a Kaigelu 316,Hero 616 and a presentation case. A rather modest request,but boy oh boy,did she give more than that... I will be reviewing all 30ish of the items she bought for me today, in reasonable detail. Hers is a list of all the items: 5 Hero 616s (Parker 51 replica) 2 Wing Sung 233s (Sheaffer Triumph replica) 1 Wing Sung 380 1 Baoer unidentified model (Sheaffer Legacy replica but WITH A HOODED NIB?!?) 1 Jinhao 599 Hooded nib variant (Lamy Safari replica
  10. Well, ummm... I own several baoer fountain pens, each one ships with identical screw converters...that work pretty decently. BUT: if I detach them and try to shove a international/standard/peilikan type cartridge, it simply doesn't fit. If I do it by brute force, it results in most of times, a cracked cartridge and ink everywhere....or in the worst case a disassembled/pushed forward nib/feeder. It's not just a single model/single package baoer pen, but 4models from different sellers and shapes. Plz explain me: am I forced to use that default bad-looking, cheap converter?
  11. I've got this little pen for 8€ shipment included from a buyer that says is a Baoer model 688. I've also found a review for what looks like the same pen with Baoer 516 engraved on the cap (mine has no egraving). The reviewer says that this could be a replica of a Dupont model but I didn't manage to find any Dupont that looks like this pen. I was wondering if there's anybody with more info on this pen, willing to share and shade some light on the model number dilemma?
  12. My two work horses in the office. Coffee time discovery. You can screw the feed assembly of a Baoer 508 into the barrel of a Baoer 3035. You can cap it using the 3035 cap too but there is no click closure. Unfortunately that's all, the opposite procedure doesn't work at all.
  13. HisNibs.com update -- New Jinhao Dreadnaught & Duke Harlequin colors Greetings all, http://www.hisnibs.com/HisNibsOlympicInspired_small.jpg Watching the Olympics has inspired me to work out again! Click the link below if you'd like to see my latest Facebook Live video -- mistakes and all. Dreadnaught & Pen World video The next batch of pens from China -- and a few domestic ones as well -- have been restocked. As in the past, there are too many models coming in to point them out individually, so again I'm linking them on the homepage http://www.hisnibs.com/ near the top, wi
  14. 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.N
  15. I have owned this pen for a few months now, and noticed that it’s a little under-represented in terms of reviews – so thought I would do something to help rectify that situation. This is a pretty classy looking pen – deliberately styled to resemble the Montblanc Starwalker range, but at a significantly lower price point! Please be aware that the ranking I give the pen is relative. This is an inexpensive pen, made in China – I doubt it would stack up this well if it was sitting next to the German-made pen that ‘inspired’ its design and manufacture! _______________________________________
  16. I just typed a lot of stuff about this pen and my browser lost it. :-/ On to the important stuff. I'll come back to write more about it (again) when I have some more time. http://i.imgur.com/MZLVlTE.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/e03zupP.jpg
  17. The subject is the question. How is Baoer pronounced? I can see pronouncing it several different ways, but it's not from an English language manufacturer, so it may have a pronunciation that's totally different from anything I could guess. Anybody know? It could be spelled Luxury Yacht but pronounced throat-warbler-mangrove. Reference link.

    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 pref
  19. Does anyone know if the nib in a Baoer 388 is a number 5? Almost seems like it, because I would like to replace it with a much finer point.

    Baoer 701 With Hooded Nib

    First Impressions (8)For a dollar forty, I wasn’t expecting much, but this pen proved to be a great value for the price. It is a true fine nib, and I have not had any problems with it thusfar. Appearance (9)The design of this pen is a gold gridded body with a black cap, black section, and a steel hooded nib. The pen feels less wide in person than it appears in the photos. Construction (8)This pen has seemingly very good build quality for a Chinese pen. It is made of metal and is a little heavy, I don’t have an exact weight but it feels like it is about the same weight as my Jinhao x450. Nib
  21. 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 varie
  22. Figured what better way to get into fountain pens than to start inexpensive, fortunately had a couple friends who were able to get me some recommendations on favorable ones. Most were about 10USD or less, the most expensive 'single' pen was the Uranus KSF-301 w/ Box for about 17USD. My favorite of the pack is the Jinhao X750 with the Goulet Extra Fine nib, followed by the Jinhao X450 which I replaced with a Goulet 1.5mm Stub Nib (I put the 2-tone Jinhao M nib from the X450 onto my Nemosine Singularity). On the thin side it's a toss up between the Kaigelu 363 and Jinhao 611. The Hero 616 is
  23. It’s been a while since the last time I put up a pen review, but I’m hoping to publish a couple tonight – another two Chinese pens that fit into the ‘classic’ black-and-gold slot that seems to be so common. Both pens were provided to me free, in return for an impartial review, by Kevin at JustWrite Pens (www.JustWrite.com.au). According to the JustWrite website, the Classic 717 is manufactured by Shanghai BAOER Stationery – which is a little odd, given the striking resemblance of this pen to two of the better-known offerings by rival company, Jinhao. It’s an attractive pen in its own right
