What Chinese Pens Are You Using Today?

A Jinhao X450 in black, with Parker Black.

 

I cannot understand how they can make such a good quality durable item for so little money.

BECAUSE THEY ARE CLEVER. Buy lots of both Jinhao and Baoer which is made by the same company. I have a large collection of some of their oldest pens which included some very well known Saints in great presentation Boxes for very little cost.Trust me .oneill

Jinhao x750 Shimmering Sands finish inked up with Sailor yama-dori (the amazing teal color). I figure if I can't afford a raden finish, I'll enjoy the holographic glitter. This pen writes so, so much better than I was expecting!

 

The second one is a Jinhao 1200 with a gaudy dragon clip and finished inked up with Noodler's Dragon's Napalm. I'm usually not one for flashy pens, but for some inexplicable reason, I love this pen, and pairing it up with a dragon-themed ink seemed punny (penny?) to me. It was perfect for watching the season finale of Game of Thrones.

Guess what , another weekend and another typhoon coming .. we have three in two weeks so I just sit around doing all the paper work I've backlogged with my Penton F20 Limited Edition " Permanent Black " inked with J.Herbin Lie de thé ; this is the only time I've got a limited edition that's cheaper than the normal production model

This Baoer 701 arrived with the nib slightly off center. I put it away for a while, and have finally coaxed it into the proper alignment. Thanks to Richila for recommending this great pen. As she says, very smooth.post-135679-0-02742800-1504466762_thumb.jpg

Even though it is 95 degrees F outside with 15% humidity, I inked up one of my Picassos. Most of my Chinese pens do not like living in the high desert. They prefer humidity to operate at peak efficiency. But my bright red Picasso Montmartre beckoned. I inked up with one of my most lubricating inks, DeAtramentis Edgar Allen Poe - a lovely mysterious dark green.

Today I used my Loiminchay Xingshu Script Calligraphy II fountain pen along with Iroshizuku Tsuki-Yo ink.

You need to stop this. :D

Your pen is just stunning, and every time I look at it, it gets more beautiful.

 

A Hero 616 it is not :D

I saw a red, white and black Loiminchay a while back and thought oooh, I do like that, and being Chinese I also thought that it may be reasonably priced.

And went on the hunt.

GULP! and we'll leave it at that.

 

I'm looking forward to the next page of your writings, it has the makings of a Mills & Boon, but written with a far better pen of course.

 

Thanks for showing us your beautiful pen again, looking at it it on a regular basis has become part of my daily routine. :)

Yip, I agree, very smooth, although I have the open nib version, which was excellent straight out of the box (padded packet).

A nice pen all round.

95 degrees... What's that? :D

 

It was quite warm here yesterday in The Land of the Badger Handbag, to the point when the mercury reached a whopping 55 degrees and I had to take off my parka.

 

People were running around in vests, and shorts, smothering themselves in chip fat.

 

I don't think fountain pens and chip fat is a good combination. :D

 

Sorry, kinda got sidetracked there.

Picasso, high temperature, mad humidity,

So how does it run?

I didn't know that Penton makes pens which are not demonstrators. First time that I see. Where did you get such pens? Taobao?

Taobao for sure, but I've seen them also on AliExpress and a couple of time on eBay ; if you click on the photo on the post I've made it will take you to the Taobao item page. The description state a thousand piece was batch produced and that's it , my understanding is that a single batch of 1000 pieces each for each color and model combo ( 7 colors, for both models F19 and F20 ). I do think there were previous non demonstrator from Penton ( before they are known by this name ), I just forget what model it was, but its an old model that are no longer cataloged.

 

This latest , though is kind of interesting as its not just a re-do on the color, its got a different material used on the barrel, cap and finales. On the F20 I've shown, they have also redo the clip and cap band totally, the cap band now comprise of the threads that engage the pen and there is a bulged ring of material on top of the band position ( the ring itself is another part friction fitted onto the cap ). This is also true for the F19 cap. I've got myself an extra and swap that solid color finale and the new clip onto my smoke gray demonstrator and I think it really made it much classier and a beau to have.

Ahhh . . . Scotland . . . the land of my mother's family . . . and a land on my bucket list. Right now, it sounds heavenly. We are having unseasonably hot weather here in Reno, Nevada - yesterday 103 deg. F. And it is very dry. Yesterday's humidity was 10%. Dry heat, indeed! At least we aren't having thunderstorms which spark brushfires.

 

But even with the dry weather, my little Picasso is chugging away - as long as I have a fairly long writing session with it. If I let it go a day or two, we will have dry starts again. But with this dry weather, even my trusty Jinhao FPs are struggling.

 

Oh, yes! Thank you for the lovely checkerboard Jinhao 450 with your custom stub nib grind. It writes very nicely. amberleadavis sent it to me as part of pen, ink and paper pif. Good luck in your new profession of Nibmeister!

Nibmeister!!! Hahaha.

Thanks, but I'd be too frightened to attempt anything on an expensive pen or nib, especially if it was someone elses. :D

In saying that, the process would be the same regardless of the value, but I think I'll stick to tinkering for the time being.

My Duke 370 ran out of ink so I decided to rest it for a while and I have now inked my Hero 700. I usually prefer a medium nib but the fine 12K (I think) nib on this pen is a nice smooth writer. I think the gold and silver trim suits the pen and is just about the right amount of bling for my tastes.

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
    • amk
      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
