  1. I have a nice all black Goulet #6 nib that I like a lot. For the past few years it's been living in a Jinhao 159. The jinhao 159 wasn't that lovely to begin with, and, as expected, the "enamel" is starting to chip off, so I think it's time to find a new home for my nib. I'd like something that's a bit of an upgrade from the 159, nice looking, but not too expensive. Not a Duragraph, because I already did this project with a Goulet 1.1mm stub and a Duragraph. While that turned out just fine, I don't want another one. I was thinking the Jinhao 100 might be nice - a classic Duofold look. One thing I want to try and avoid is getting a pen that's *too* nice... one with a nib that, after swapping with the Goulet nib, I'll feel like I need to find its own home! (It's a vicious cycle! ) Tell me about your Goulet #6 nib rehoming projects!
  2. Hello, I have a question that I do not think has been answered yet (at least not that my extensive googling and patrolling of this forum can find). I have a Jinhao 159 that I'm slowly turning into a flex-nibbed pen. I bought a Noodler's #6 flex nib a while ago, and while it DOES fit, albeit with some force, and it DOES write, the feed has some issues keeping up with the demands of the nib. A possibility to fix this is jerry-rigging a Noodler's ebonite feed into my 159. The only thing I've seen about this was a random post a while ago on some forum I'm not familiar with stating that he 'was going to try cutting it to fit', but I never saw a resolution to this. It seems like it would fit, just have to cut the bottom a bit where Jinhao has that flat side on their feeds. Anybody tried this? I'm not too worried about ruining the pen or other parts, since none of these things crest $10. Thanks, John

    Jinhao 159 Stub Nib

    Hi guys! Hope y'all doing well. It was that day again where this 15 year-old teen felt bored writing with a characterless Jinhao 159. So I just pulled out my pen customizing stuff and ground a stub. It turned out beautiful. It is smooth and wet and has enough line variation that makes the nib interesting to write with but still be usable for daily writing. Here are some pictures... I would love to learn more of this art. I also recently did my first paid stub for a friend and that also turned out quite good. P.S. Excuse the crappy pics. I promise to do a full review of the pen with better pictures. I just want my tenth grade final exams to finish as soon as possible. Also the nib looks a bit like an oblique in the photo but believe me its not. Take care, Adit Kamath
  4. Okay, so I just bought a Jinhao 159 that came with a Goulet # 6 two-tone "M" nib and my plans are to use it for personal correspondence. Choices: Edelstein AVENTURINE Diamine POPPY RED Montblanc TOFFEE BROWN Waterman INTENSE BLACK I was thinking about Aventurine but a LONG letter in green sounds a bit much. OTOH, green is my favorite color and I like this one......but I STILL come back to it being overkill. Poppy Red is interesting because it is not that clownish or teacher's red, but it's STILL red. Hmmmmmmm MB toffee puts down a nice wet line and I like the color. The first pen I loaded it with had some issues, so I wonder if this may not be the way to go? W. Intense Black is another option, but black is black, right? I do have some Kon-Peki left, but a little of that goes a long way and I just emptied a pen with it. FINALLY, DA "Sherlock Holmes," but it seems pretty innocuous to me. Is the Green and/or RED too much of one thing or too little of another? Help a budding FP-lover out, will ya?
  5. I just saw that the Jinhao 159 is available on eBay in a stainless steel finish. Looks attractive.
  6. The Tall Dark Stranger turned his horse toward Texas Street as he rode into Abilene Town. He'd signed on as a drover with the cowboys bringing their cattle up to the rail head in Abilene Town, Kansas - The Heartland. It was a hard dusty ride up the famous Chisholm Trail from Wichita. Yet he showed none of the bone deep tiredness of the others. The Stranger didn't speak much on the ride. Most of the men stayed away from him. He was just that big and scary. A few tried to get him to talk and see where he had come from, but they were met with a steely stare, a far off look that would send chills down your spine. “Not from around these parts” was the obvious unspoken answer to that question anyway. The Stranger's horse was his only friend. He was an ominous figure, taller than most men. Slender, save for a muscled upper body that spoke of an inner strength. He wore a long black duster and black chaps, and his side arms were of a glistening silver steel. His spurs were bigger and shinier than most of the other drovers or Cowboys for that matter, and they made a sharp sound “Ka-Chang, Ka-Chang, Ka-Chang, ... …........ as he walked down the old wooden boardwalk. He stopped in front of the Bull's Head Tavern parched from the dust and heat the Chisholm Trail met out. He pushed his broad bulky shoulders against the swinging doors like he owned the place, still swathed in his black duster and black chaps. He was an ominous figure to say the least. The citizen's of Abilene Town were used to all kind of drovers and cowboys during the great cattle drives. This one was clearly different. Darker. Taller, Stranger. The cattle drives were a necessity as the closest rail lines from Texas to the East were right there in Abilene Town, a tradition hailing back to the days of James Butler Hickok – the famous “Wild Bill”. Arguably the fastest gunman of the Old West. And “Wild Bill” in his fame, brought many men to Abilene to fight and try their luck of the draw. All of them failed. He had ended the lives of 36 men during his days with his pistols. He'd kept the peace in Abilene Town until he accidentally shot his own deputy during the gunfight on Texas street. Hickok's sight was failing and when he heard the running footsteps on the old boardwalk he turned and fired in an instant and killed his friend. The town folk were tired of all the gunfights and commotion. And now Hickok was just an old memory. He never was the same and the Town forced him out. He died in Deadwood, S.D., holding a hand of black aces and eights. The Deadman's Hand. KIlled from behind by the cowardly Jack McCall. This stranger was well – even stranger. And it was clear from his mighty heft that he had a pair of..... well Brass finials. Guts of Brass? He was a towering figure, taller than most. Could he stand up to the infamy of the “famous one”, … or was he just a "Paper Tiger”? It was a plain simple fact that he would be tested. And he would be tested hard. The showdown was soon to come. There was a group of men at one of the tables, farmers who had brought their wheat into town for sale. Two of them were recent immigrants from Germany. One of them turned to his friend and said ”Hans look, LOOK, it is the “Meisterstuck from Hamburg”. Hans immediately turned and looked at the Stranger intently “Nein Gunther” his friend said, “that is the Stranger from Jinhao. The Shanghai Kid” The Dark Stranger sauntered up to the bar and the bartender Smiley asked “Wadda you have Stranger?” “Give me some Water-man ..... with a shot of South Sea Blue”, said he. Stay thirsty my friends. There's a new Boss in Town.
  7. So, recently I was cycling through pens and gave my 159 another go. It worked for me for the past week but today the ink spilled out of the top of the cap and into my leather case. Luckily, I cleaned it up and wrapped it in a cloth for the rest of the day I was at uni. Anyways, my solution was to put silicon grease on the top threads in the case that it would happen again. Then I had a thought. What if I left the clip off? I present to you: Quite beautiful IMHO. Sailor 1911L for comparison. NB: just remember to put silicon grease on the top as although it is tight, I wouldn't trust it to be waterfast.

    Assistance Sought - Clip

    The clip of my Jinhao 159 is a lot more tight-sprung than I'd ideally like it to be. To slip it into my shirt pocket takes a wee effort and while that's still manageable, to take it out therefrom seemingly threatens to rip a tear in the pocket. Any ideas on how to safely loosen the clip without endangering the pen in any way or making it too loose to be of further use? Thanks in advance PS: The top bit of the cap cannot be unscrewed and the clip detached from the pen, in case you wondered...
