Red Rosewood Wooden Medium Iridium 0.5mm [$2.31 FS] Arrived 1/7/16.


I couldn’t get this pen to write. Shook it up and down numerous times. Left it standing on its cap, point down for most of the day, ran a brass sheet through the slit. Nothing worked.

1/17/16: Flushed the SNFA (section nib feed assembly) with water, using a clean converter, then tried the writing test. It did write, but skipped consistently. I switched in a replacement nib (from the Genius Iridium batch) and encountered the same problem. My guess is the feed is clogged or bad. I haven’t tried washing SNFAs. Maybe I should try it with this one.

This pen wrote immediately with no hesitation. Smooth and slightly wet on Mead green tint steno tablet paper. Good on Mead letter paper. Has a piston twist converter. The Rosewood pen, which is similar except for the barrel and cap material, costs much less but is an extremely poor writer. The Rosewood comes with a piston plunger converter.

Jinhao 159 Black And Silver M Nib Thick [$3.64 FS]. Clone of Montblanc 149. Arrived 1/2/16. This pen is obese!


This pen is surprisingly thick. Looks twice as thick as ordinary pens. It’s hard to get over the size, but it’s well constructed with a screw on cap, and the writing is a fine medium on Mead green tint steno tablet paper. The point is smooth, and the flow is consistent. For appearance & construction, I’m awarding 4 stars — very good. For writing, 4 stars — very good.

Fountain Pens Ordered from China 12/12/15

Updated 12/15/15, 12/16/15, 12/30/15, 1/16/16
While exploring eBay for old pens, I learned about fountain pens made in China and decided to look into it. I found an online shopping site and zeroed in on fountain pens. (Amazon also features most or all of these pens at very low prices.) I was surprised at the low prices and apparent quality. I also googled reviews on some of the pens and was surprised, again, at the quality of the pens.
