Nice color combo! I do prefer the decorative band on this version better than the double band. I have one on the way, eager to hop around with it 😂

There are a couple of colors of the new pens that are quite similar to some of the Conway Stewart colors. Quite nice

People is this forum have suggested that it’s smart to grab a colourway you like when you see it, because it may be gone quickly and with no guarantee any particular pen will be made again in that color. I’ve certainly missed several nice colors in my new interest in Chinese pens, so I try to remember that what I see a color I like.

Jinhao X450 with the "gray marble" finish/color, filled with Noodlers Lexington Gray.

I've been using it the last couple days for most things.

Back when I got started using FPs on a regular basis (just over a decade ago at this point), I bought a few $5 US Guanleming pens.  The demonstrator cap clip caught on the elastic in a pen case and snapped the finial off (but was my original Bay State Blue-designated pen, because at that price, I didn't care if it got stained or not).  But the other two?  They are amazingly well made pens for the price: the 193 Calligraphy pen (the one with the fude nib) is really attractive (if I could have found one with a different color barrel and/or a different nib width I would not have hesitated to buy it); and the 978 Accountant pen impressed a friend of mine with how well it was made for the price.

And this one looks to also be a well-built, attractive pen.

Yet others have suggested, perhaps not in so many words, that it is smarter to forgo the unnecessary expense of buying another pretty pen one doesn't really need, and didn't feel so compelled to part with money to secure as soon as one laid eyes on it. ;)

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

That’s a terrible philosophy for a fountain pen collector! 😉
