I am back to China for my summer holiday :) And I had a chance to get some NOS Chinese pens which costs less than a dollar. All these brands have disappeared except Wang Sung, and NOS pens are probably the best Chinese pens you can get now days.

Three NOS pens:

- Wang Sung (Lit. Long Live) 500

- Zuanshi (Lit. Diamond) 861

- White Feather 700

 

The Wang Sung 500 was made in the 1980s and 1990s and it was for both domestic and export markets. It comes with an aerometric converter and can also take the cheaper all-plastic Parker converter (I do not have the more expensive or "luxury" version for a test) or Parker/Aurora cartridges. It is currently using a Quink Blue cartridge which comes as a gift when I bought the Parker converter when I visited the local office supply shop.

The Zuanshi 861 is not very good from my perspective. It is too dry and a bit scratchy.

The White Feather 700 must have borrowed some ideas from Sheaffer. Nevertheless, it writes smoothly and seems to be durable.

These pens do not have nib sizes labeled, but I believe they are (by western standards) either F or EF.
