Fountain Pens Ordered from China 12/12/15

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.

I decided to purchase a bunch that (1) appealed to me and (2) were on the low end of the price scale. Roughly half cost less than $5 apiece, and the rest cost between $5 and $10. One pen cost a little less than $13, but that was a mistake on my part. I didn’t catch it until after I had ordered it. I had the option to cancel the purchase, but I decided to go with it.

I splurged and selected 28 different pens. At this price, it seemed a bargain. When they arrive, I plan to write brief reviews for each, one at a time, as time permits. I’ll also gradually replace the photos below, which are from the commercial site.
