Pif For A Baoer 516

Recommended Posts

In hopes of springing Spring . . . here is a PIF (with postage included) for a Baoer 516 with a custom-ground steel nib. It was originally described as a stub but this nib seems to be finer than that, and it delivers noticeable feedback. I believe that the body of this pen is black lacquer over brass, which makes it feel substantial. The nib and trim are silver-colored. The pen measures 5 1/2" with its snap-on cap, and 4 3/4" when it's uncapped. It comes with a Baoer (piston-style) converter. A few photos are included.

I have used this Baoer for several months and it's a fun writer, but I need to make some room in my pen box for a few new experiments. So if this pen sounds like something you would like to try out, reply to this thread before the end of this month. I will collect the replies and draw one out of the hat (a handsome fedora) on February 28th and post the winner here. Good luck everyone!

ShinsoHito!

 

If you can send me a PM with your address, I will put this Baoer into the post for you!

 

Thank you, everyone, for your interest. May another pen show up here in PIF-land soon :)

Add me to the draw too please

 

Shinso Hito-- Did you ever receive the Baoer 516? I hope you will let me know if it did not reach you. I can try to follow up on it from here. If it did reach you, I hope it's working out with its new converter? Best wishes. ~M

I did get the pen. Thank you very much for the trouble, and also including another pen as well!

 

This is one of my favourite quotes, there is also a translation, my english isn't very good but I had to turn the nib the other way to write it, also my writing isn't so good but it fits it's purpose. If it isn't so easily readable this says :

 

"Man is an animal that makes bargains : no other animal does this ~ no dog exchanges bones for another" and is a quote from an English person called Adam Smith!

Thank you, Shinso Hito, especially for the great writing sample and quote in two languages. A wonderful return gift, I would say!
