My Inexpensive Chinese Collection.

Recommended Posts

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 probably the least favorite of all the Chinese ones I've tried.

Jinhao 611 in blue, aside from the Hero 616 I have, probably the finest on the nib size I have.

A Kaigelu 363 and Haushilai 2111, bought them as a pair, I like the Kaigelu better of the two.

Most of them side by side (the non-Chinese ones shown being the Sheaffer Snorkel, Nemosine Singularity, and the unbranded green one in the front)

Nice job with the pics. The two-tone nib with the shimmering sands gives it some nice pop.

Yea it does especially nice when I put the Goulet 2-tone 1.5mm Stub Nib onto the X450.

The nibs themselves were only 15 each, so still pretty inexpensive for the pen body and nib quality.

Got my Jinhao Shimmering Sands today. It's a very pretty pen and quite hefty (I will have to use it unposted, but that's fine; it's perfect for me unposted). Thanks for the pictures.

You've got the touch with photography. Just discovered this thread for Chinese pens. You've got a nice little collection there with the Goulet nibs. I ordered the Shimmering Sands, and will use a Goulet 1.1 stub. How do you like the Baoer 8-horses?
