Is There A List Of Every Wing Sung Pen Out There?

Recommended Posts

I was at the Central Ohio Pen club meeting when I was mentioning my love of Sheaffer triumph nibs, and they mentioned a Wing Sung 233 pen has a knock off of those nibs. I looked and I was so ready to buy. Then a small typo and I accidentally discovered the 234 so I looked further, found the beautiful 327. I come here and I see a post for a variant on the work pens I give to clients: a 601, the 601a variant now has their knockoff triumph nib on it. Got me wondering, does a list of every Wing Sung exist? Id bet there are a lot of others Id be interested in, but I do not know what to look for.

Well that looks inlaid. But thank you for providing that! What gorgeous pens, and those nibs prove that anything is possible with inlaid nibs! Wow 😍

WingSung the Factory... The main body of WingSung's history began from 1947 as 商务自来水笔厂 and CPC(may be Commercial Pen Company) for short in English . WingSung brand from a small factory whose brand was Life in English and I do not know which factory it is and when the factory founded, it may be founded in 1940s~early 1950s.

They are Lily, for scoring Bridge's score. Lily 718=WingSung 239, manufactured by Hefei Pen General Factory, with which WingSung had an affiliation relation.

 

The first factory manufacturing Triumph nib FP is Dah-Loh, which made over production line to Xinhua(WingSung) in 1960s.

I am not sure whether Xinhua(WingSung) had manufactured 258 Lucky mosquito/bee style which is snorkel.

Andong and Nanjing had special triumph nib and Nanjing considered itself as the second factory which can manufacture triumph nib.

Neato! Did Hero buy the nibs for their lone model from Wing Sung?

Hero had an affiliation relation with Nanjing Pen Factory, which can manufacture Triumph nib FP and got the license to use Hero brand as Hero's branch. Nanjing Pen Factory considered itself as the second factory which can manufacture triumph nib.

You always have such great details to share! Do you know if they got the tooling to make these nibs from Sheaffer? Or did they develop their own?

Sheaffer cooperated with WingSung in 1990s. While Chinese triumph nib began from mid 1950s.

So I do not think sheaffer provide the tool to Chinese manufactors.

 

Some document mentioned Balance was measured then the copy one was manufactured.

 

I think Triumph nibs were measured then manufacturing as Balance.

Sheaffer cooperated with WingSung in 1990s. And Chinese triumph nib began from mid 1950s, so. However, there were groups of engineer which focused on foreign fp and drew the blueprint.

So industrious! And I just saw your earlier reply that they also developed their own snorkel. Very industrious indeed. Reverse engineering is not as easy as some people think.

I saw blueprints on a online platform of antique, which are Sheaffer snorkel, Parker 61, Pilot Capless and some other fps and drawn in 1960s.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
