Chinese pens are dream stuff for cash starved lesser mortals not yet initiated into the adoration rituals of high end pens ! I had purchase a lot of Chinese pens in last two years from e-bay, 40% of those were stolen in transit and 60% made it- I can live with that but not again-I don't buy from e-bay anymore. My last ship visited a Couple of mid-north China ports and I could buy some items in person, from so called Brick & Morter [ modern] stores and was too happy to a) lay hands on them immediately and B) not lose the 40%. Bought some nibs and ink pumps too, and could not convey to them what is a feeder! I have put some pictures in the following- I will write about each these as I have some more time. Meanwhile , may I request Chinese pen lovers to visit my old and very humble blog at

Sorry to hear about your experiences there. I don't think it's a problem with ebay, but more to do with the Indian postal service.

I've bought many pens from China and HK and never once had one go missing.

 

Great reviews btw! I'm considering the ivory coloured x450 too - sounds like it's it's extremely good value for money

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
