    How they can do it at this price, but the others can't at a much higher price point I do not understand.
    My green one currently has a bock titanium nib. Works well.

    I think the generic term is: cyanoacrylate.

    I picked up a few free pen kits at Oscar Rodriguez's Pay-It-Forward table at the Triangle Pen Show a couple of weeks ago. I gave them to my friend for her kids. I had two kits with the JinHao 992s. I will let her know of their tendency to crack, as well as the fixes that are possible. I don't want to sour her kids on fountain pens, because I enjoy mine very much.

    I've a small collection but I find myself reaching for my pens multiple times a day and obsessing over getting more. You'd think they were food and drink, or something.

    Hmm ... perhaps i should warn my friend of the temptation of becoming an ink collector, too. There are so darned many of them, I'll never "catch'em all".

    I love the Jinhao 992 pen a great deal too and have several in my drawer. The problem I'm having them unfortunately is they all seem to skip badly. It's very frustrating because I love the design and the feel of these pens so much I've become obsessed with finding a way to "fix" them and make them into reliable writers.

    Yet, I'm not a nib expert and while i can mess around with nibs and feeds, I really don't know what I'm doing. The pens are too cheap to send off to a pen expert so what can I do?

    For a while I said this pen is likely an imitation of some other more expensive demonstrator but I cannot find one that is the same size as the Jinhao. The Pilot custom 74 has a similar design but it is much bigger. I like smaller pens.

    If you can suggest a pen that was possibly the inspiration for this pen (Chinese are the ultimate immitators) I'd gladly pay more to get it.

    Yes, I've washed the pens thoroughly and yes I've tried different inks. Very little change.

    All comments welcome.

    Apparently they are Sailor clones. Not cheap. There are similar cigar shape pens out there with decent nibs.

    I've had bad luck with Jinhao nibs too.
