  1. The writing of the dragon snake may be natural, but the wording of the statement certainly isn't. I was ‘researching’ and browsing for something else, when I came across this: Source: Item listing on Taobao The endless scroll of marketing images in the item listing say, among other things: Source: Item listing on Taobao This looks like marketing collateral that came straight from Jinhao, and not advertising some after-market nib work. So, after all this time, it looks like a fountain pen manufacturer has finally stepped up to the challenge, and produce a very fine nib for a line width that is in the range Platinum previously published for its EF nibs, that is a standard option for the pen model and not custom ground. You can even order the nib in any of four different coloured finishes! The finest Chinese nib I've seen marketed to date, before this, is nominally 0.35mm EF (even though most Chinese EF nibs are nominally 0.38mm). As for nibs bearing European and American fountain pen brands, I don't think I've seen any brand advertise or commit to even 0.3mm. Parker speaks of an Extra Extra Fine nib that is available (specially produced on demand) only through its nib exchange programme, but in my experience that product is nowhere near fit for purpose. How this Jinhao nib — which, to my pleasant surprise, is labelled Extra Fine but not Extra Extra Fine or Ultra Extra Fine, while 0.35mm is Medium Fine, and so it is now adopting something closer to what nib width grades mean for Japanese nibs — will actually perform awaits to be seen; but I have every confidence it will better than what Parker can do.
