I had the exact same thing happen with a Jinhao 126, the eBay seller tried to tell me it was a user error, I sent pictures and he gave me back my money. The center part had come apart because the snap cap was just too tight for the glue they were using to keep it in the barrel. I offered to send the pen back, but he didn't want it. I have an x750, but the snap cap on it is much 'softer' and I've not had the same problem you had with mine. I replaced my Jinhao nib with a Goulet Pens nib and that made a world of difference in the performance of the pen.

So space and time are linked together. As we are looking across space, we are looking back in time. The further and further away those stars are the further back in time you are looking. Now you are seeing a star that is say six thousand years ago. Imagine somebody at that star looking at us They would be seeing us as we were six thousand years ago.

Good to know I'm not the only one with this strong cap issue.

 

also I do intend to get another nib on these pens but I'm putting money aside for this since I'm more into inks than FP (funnily enough) so I have one pen for each ink, hence the Jinhaos lol.

I enjoyed the review very informative.

thanks ;)

 

it takes time and energy (especially since I'm quite sick from a tough disease) but it is my pleasure to share my videos ;) keeps me going I guess.

This has never happened to me. It's usually the other way around: the inner cap is so tight it cracks. This has happened repeatedly with the Baoer 388 pens, as well as the Jinhao 450. It is fixable, by taking the inner cap sleeve out and taping it, but the fix will not last forever.

 

Thanks for the info!

 

P.S. Bravo pour les vidéos - je viens de découvrir votre chaîne youtube.

Very informative. Thank you.

 

This is a little awkward for me because the pens look HUGE in your hands compared to how I'm used to seeing them. :D

 

I really like the idea of having several of the same kind of pen for different inks! I'll bet it makes it a lot easier to determine ink properties with out pen variables. Magnus919, if you think her hands are small, you should see mine. I can write comfortably with the TWSBI Vac mini unposted, and pretty well with the mini for short notes :)

Nice video review. Thank you. :)

Tinkering around with the X450s and 750s I have I found that by dismantling the outer cap and inner cap and reassembling them with the inner cap not pushed in so far eases the tightness of the cap. Personally I have had the opposite issue (and then only with one of the dozen or so 450s & 750s I have) of the cap being a bit too loose for my liking so by gently tapping the plastic inner cap further into the outer and re-tightening the finial, the cap has become tighter.

 

Beyond that all my Jinhaos have so far been faultless and none have suffered from the section / nib separation issue. Luck of the draw I guess.

I watched your videos on paper Blanks again a nice video! I bought one for as a secret Santa gift for someone a while back and they do seem really nice. However I haven't bought one for myself as I never find anything worth while to write in this type of notebook.

My view normally looks like this. I don't have an X750 with me so here's an even thicker pen, the Jinhao 159.

Even for a woman, I have very small hands, my husband finds this feature of mine quite funny.

Which is exactly the reason why I no longer buy these. I find them beautiful but too distractive or too themed already for my own purposes. I used them to hide all thedaily information about my disease then discovered doctors don't give a damn and devised a more simple system.
