Hongdian LE in Sterling Silver

Recommended Posts

I just couldn't resist! And I had a positive account balance on PayPal.

I have the first CdA LE (from 1994), so, I thought, why not the first HongDian LE. 😁


Bought it with an EF nib.


This pen will join several other silver pens, several from Waldmann, one from Otto Hutt, one from YOL and a silver-plated from Graf-von-Faber-Castell.

The seller from which I bought is esybuy on Ebay or Etsy.

Didn't know Hongdian also has higher priced FPs. Is this a recent developement?


Looking through esybuy's Etsy store there's also the (tho a bit more medium priced) Hongdian 885 Mount Qomolangma - one of its versions sports a partially black nib 🧐

I got a message today that my choice is not available if I could change my choice (to the one I wanted the least).

I guess the seller didn't have any stock - despite I asked and they said yes, they have.

Probably, they just checked with Hongdian after I ordered.


I said, no thank you. At least, the seller reimbursed me immediately after I asked for that.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
