  1. Hi, I hope someone can help me, because I don't know what I'm doing. I caught the fountain pen bug about three years ago and bought several pens -- inexpensive ones to start with. When they developed problems, I tried giving them a thorough cleaning, and I still had problems with them and gave up. My pens have been stored unused ever since. Something recently sparked an interest again and I decided to give it another try. I flushed and cleaned a Pilot Metropolitan, a Lamy Safari, and two Jinhaos: an X450 and X750. The Pilot and Lamy are writing beautifully now, but I can't get either of th
  2. Hello forum, I bought a Jinhao x450 and I had a query regarding the nib. I thought the pen comes with a Medium nib, but it looks to be much finer. Can you confirm from the images ? Is there something wrong with the nib/flow ? You can see it breaks in the "F" and bottom of "G"s. (please zoom the images while examining) Also there is hardly a "hairline" gap between the tines. I cant even see the light through the gap. I love writing with the M nib of my old Parker Vector. The color is deep dark and uniform. But with x450, the lines are almost scratchy and non uniform. I tried to increase

    Jinhao X450 Cap Is Too Loose

    Hi all, I have a Jinhao X450 that was dropped (by me) a while back. Now the cap is so loose it's not really usable. I'm holding it on the pen with electrical tape, but that's not always going to be practical (nor is it the most aesthetically pleasing thing ever). Is there a way to get the cap back to its usual tight-fitting self? It doesn't need to be quite as tough to get on and off as it was, but I would like it to stay on reliably. Thanks, Miche
  4. Hey guys, So I recently got a Chinese pen delivered to me. (a jinhao x450) The section got three grooves for the fingers to go. (like the lamy safari) However, the nib and feed seems to be at a slight angle to the grooves and the nib and feed themselves are misaligned. I've done a bit of research and realized that the feed nib and section are a friction fit. But no matter how hard I Pull. The Feed/ nib won't budge. Is there anyway to seperate the feed nib and the section? Cheers, Victor
  5. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew of any pressure-type (squeeze) converters that could be used with a Jinhao X450, like the Con-20 for Pilot. The screw-type converter that came with the pen seems to prevent the ink from flowing as well as it should and every now and then I have to force it a tad by screwing it down a bit. I'm also wondering if a regular international pre-inked cartridge would be better than the scew-type refillable ones. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

    Question

    Like most of us knows, the Jinhao X750, X450 and 159 are big successes among fountain pens users. As well most of us knows that Chinese pens manufacturers makes copy of popular brands. So I'm wandering why none of any small independent western manufacturer doesn't makes copy of Jinhao X750 and X450 in acrylic, ebonite or any nicer and better materials? Because if someone decide to start making the barrels and caps, many of the original can be transplanted from original: the clip, finials, cap insert, section. I would like to have a better X750 made from a beautiful material and upgraded JoWo n
  7. Hello folks, I purchased a Jinhao X750 and a Jinhao X450. Both are giving me similar problems. Basically, with the X750, I wrote approximately two pages and all the ink in the converter was gone. It gushes like crazy and writes down a thick inky line that takes forever to dry due to the sheer amount of ink laid down. It also sometimes lays down blobs of ink randomly. Now I have taken out the feed and put it back in so its snug and correctly placed, I have flushed the pen before using it, and I have changed converters to see if that was an issue. All to no avail. I like the design of these pe

    Jinhao X450

    So my friend from Asturias (Northern Spain) received this pen from eBay and he sent it to me so that I could do a review on it and I have had it for about two weeks now. I have to say that this company is really cheap and really good for their prices. I did have to floss it with my brass shim but thats because I have big handwriting and I like a lot of ink flow. This pen works really well for a newbie and also for a collector in my opinion. Its made to be used and I like that quality. Why have a pen if you are not going to be using it. (I can think of a lot of reasons but eh.) I really recom

    Quest For A Schoolpen

    My son has some problems with his handwriting. Wonder where he got that from... Anyhow, it is a nice excuse to take a look at the school writing tools he's given here in the Netherlands. So I made a handfull of writing examples with his schoolpen and some others laying around. Ample reason to share the result here. And to beg you all for proper advise. First on the line is my daily writer: Sheaffer Imperial IV TD. It is of sentimental value to me, but apart from that: nothing I have touched comes even close to its performance. Never dry, easy filler, no hassle nibcleaning, smooth, balanc
  10. For my first fountain pen, I am debating between a lamy vista (F/EF) or a Jinhao X450/X750 with a Goulet #6 (F or EF) nib. I like the looks of both pens, so it is a matter of performance. I will be using this pen mainly for school notes. How do the two pens compare in terms of performance, comfort, etc.? Also, how does the stock jinhao nib compare to the goulet nib? -Thanks
  11. I have a Jinhao X450 (marbled finish) that I got a while ago when I bought a couple of Chinese pens (one is my knock-about Hero 110 that's quite good). I avoid Chinese pens unless I need something that I can use when working in the lab or that can be knocked-about, be lost (or stolen). Given that, I don't usually pay more than $10 for them, and don't care much if they don't work. But I have taken a liking to the very sturdy brass and enamel construction and the excellent M nib that I have gotten used to (though I greatly prefer F and EF nibs and usually avoid M or bigger because it is imprac
