Does anyone want a Jinhao 159 in Yellow with a size 5 nib? I got it in Goulet's BOGO sale and find this pen to be just too big for me.

I'll give it a good home.
I don't have a single JinHao.

If still available, I would be interested. I've looked at those pens a lot, but ended up with a metropolitan.

Want to give a "Thank You!" shout out to Pickwick.
Got the 159 yesterday, and it's my first JinHao pen ever.
It's... BIG.

(I tried to PM but the FPGeeks inbox system went haywire on me and kept sending the message to myself... twice :) )
