    Default HERO H718

    For sale is a HERO H718 fountain pen with a 10K fine nib that writes with a good amount of bounce. The pen comes with all original packaging including a very nice white leather single pen pouch studded with a tiny diamond. This pen is in brand new condition. $75 includes first class 3 day shipping within the US.

    The pen features:
    a retractable 10K soft nib
    Piston fill ink mechanism
    Black lacquered metal body
    "Greek Key" geometric design on clip band

    The pen is on the heavier side at 60grams, but is very well balanced and feels more 'substantial' in the hand than 'overweight'.
    The pen is 5.5 inches long capped and just over 5 inches long uncapped (with the nib extended).

    This wrote quite nice when I got it (less than a month ago) but I took it upon myself to take it a step further and have adjusted and smoothed this nib to write beautifully. The ink flow is more than you would expect from a nib this size, but not a gusher. A beautiful and well writing pen.

    These are nice looking pens. And going by a review on FPN, punch well above their weight.

    Hasn't been filled with RIT dye, I take it
    Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

    That's a handsome pen, best of luck!

    Not sure the nib sizing of this brand, but the nib is comparable to a TWSBI eco nib.
