Anybody Knows This Beauty? Is It From China, Korea Or Japan? What Is This Pen?

Recommended Posts

What is this pen? What is the brand / producer / origin?
What model is this?

This is a pen given to me by my father in early 80-ties. I used it for a couple of years as my every day pen.

I cannot identify the producer nor the model.
Must be produced somewhere in 1970-ties ot late 1960-ties? Much likely to be from China ? Maybe Japan?
Maybe someone is able to read the signature on the nib?

No help, would think Japanese.

Japan started getting big in fountain pens in the late '90's....before that it was rather nitch to local market.

Could post this in the Asian sub section.

In reference to P. T. Barnum; to advise for free is foolish, ........busybodies are ill liked by both factions.

Calling Dill - he can read/write both chinese and japanese. Should be able to just figure out what that character on the nib is

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)

No, that is definitely Korean character.

I think it is along the lines of Chinria ? Chinrima? I am not well versed but can read the characters a little.

 

Probably a person that is well versed in Korean can help.

This is a NORTH KOREAN fountain pen. The writing on the nib says '천리마 (Chollima)' which is some mythical creature (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chollima). For another Chollima fountain pen: http://cafe.daum.net/_c21_/bbs_search_read?grpid=8PIW&fldid=JqwZ&datanum=3355

According to the Wikipedia page: Chollima is an important symbol in North Korea. It is used as the nickname of its national association football team. The state also gave the name to the Chollima Movement, which promoted fast economic development, similar to that of the Chinese Great Leap Forward and the Soviet Stakhanovite movement. After the Korean War, the country required rebuilding to function again. In order to expedite the construction, President Kim Il-sung devised the slogan "rush as the speed of Chollima".

Thank You for help. @steve50 Yes this must be Chollima.

In late 70-ties imported pens in my country were mostly from China, I guess. What a surprise. to learn about being an owner of a fountain pen from North Korea

.

@ Mr.Rene - Yes

You are right - to some extent they copied Pilot pens.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
