Beautiful pen. There are some real gems amongst all the Chinese pens on the market. If they could/would master quality control...
Has anyone seen Urushi-type lacquer work pens from China? China has a similarly long and masterful lacquer tradition as Japan. Maybe Chinese manufacturers also make lacquer fountain pens.
Writingrav, congratulations that is a very nice looking pen.
The blue dragon on white looks pentastic.
I wonder what the characters on the cap mean ?
sinistral hypergraphica - a slurry of ink
"Your willpower is limited so use it wisely"
I believe they mean: Dragon
I love blue, and I love blue porcelain. Must get one of these, I think I'm glad yours writes well. Concern about quality is the only thing that has kept me from purchasing so far.
Been looking at that pen for awhile and I think its time to get one.
That really is a lovely pen and from my experience many of the Chinese pens write wonderfully! you have lovely handwriting as well.
