    Default What Chinese pens you used today.

    I used this Wing Sung 3008 Pen.
    This is one of the pens that I use to do my Cursive drills and it is having a EF nib. Good pen it has the real value for money in all ways.

    I have a couple of those. Why doesn't my handwriting look like yours?
    My other pen is a Montblanc.

    And my other blog is a tumblr!

    My eBooks. Because why not.

    Wow Sailor! good question.
    perhaps it is good time to clean and flus your pens and re-ink the pens with different ink.
    And don't forget your nice , favourite coffee mug is at hand when you sit done to write.

    If this set up messed it looks like your hand writing is get a bit odd. This is my experience.

    I used several pens and inked and did few ink testing . Sample of writing alongside to show.
    1) 1st is Jinhoe wood barrel ( It is one of my favourites) Nib Schimidt Fine nib
    2) Jinhoe 829 Celluloid pen with a Jowo custom Italic ground nib from FP in Spain.
    3) Jinhoe 930 Ceramic Pen Very heavy pen - it is with the original " F" nib that write with a slight feed back . So perfect nib for me
    04) Jinhoe 750 which is a handsom pen. It has a Schmidts No6 F nib . fantastic pen .
    05)Jinhoe Mont blanc look- a-like.( Star waker Type knock out , I am not sure.) Simple pen and have good character in writing.

    Durability not guaranteed . Today I fixed three other Jinhoes. pens with Glue. Their nib sections has loosen and kind of broken. Hope they can go for few miles.

    One of these pens I fixed today. It has completely fallen apart from the section collar.
    I think that's how these are meant to made.
    I have hacked these two pens to take two Vintage dip nibs. Rest are amazing. The white pen is with a G nib and it is a Mono line pen. No flex.
    But it is having enough feed back to write very Dynamic cursives. That is my goal. This wiring can't be compared to any fountain pen nib character of the pens I have.

    The black pen is having a vintage nib which has some medium flexible quality. ( which is bottom writing and the mono lined is on to of the image.)
    It is worth trying this hack but I have broken more than 4 pens as the dip nib are very difficult to adapt to the feed. And the cap top will bend the nib as the dip nibs are very long than the fountain pens.
    So try them and waste few pens and see what you can do. Dip pen get corroded faster with Water= with any ink. cleaning and drying the nib is the solution but once you stuck a dip nib into your pen no way you can remove it. That's how I broke so many pens. Due to the inability to remove the dip nibs it need very forceful removal. These two nibs in the both pens are easy to remove for clening.

    Today I stubbed a Jinhao 599A more or less successfully-I think I will be polishing the rough spots on micromesh for the rest of my life. I used a different 599A with the nib unaltered to make a small family tree to show someone, and also another 599A where I tried stubbing the nib at the very end instead of chopping some off first.

    I'm sort of terrorizing my nibs, recently...

    I have been working with an Onoto made in around 1910 which uses a vacuum filling system. Until recently these fillers were quite rare being found in expensive items like the Visconti Knights Templar. I recently discovered that I could get a Wing Sung with the same filling system for $5 on Ebay. So for comparison purposes I bought this one. I don't know how long it is going to last, but after using it for one day I am altogether quite impressed. The plastic feels OK in the hand and the section is decent length. The cap closes tight. It does not post. It writes immediately and does not seem to need the filler cap loosening off to write, the way the earlier pens did.

    It is a lovely pen. But I am not sure how long it is going to last "singing and dancing on papers" I am sure it is due to the cheapest Synthetic materials it is made of.
    When you compare to the materials used on older pens the present materials and the technology has pushed and flourished to the highest volumes of productions they are cheaper and short lasted at the same time.
    I have a couple of these pens and they are amazing. I use them regularly for my cursive practises as they are very fine writers.

    We are seeing new materials and more accurate machining methods making this kind of thing possible. I don't know how it will last but I am enjoying using it. The nib is very fine and behaves nicely.

    I havenít inked it yet, but I am super excited to have a new penguin buddy. I have just recently discovered the Asian fountain pen market, and am loving that thereís such a wide variety in every price range, from Sailor and Namiki, to Hero and Chuan Ren.

    A couple Jinhao X450's with a 2 tone Jinhao Fine nib. (I put a Fine in all six of my X450's)
    Inks are Diamine 'Writers blood' (from a wet nib it looks black at first/second glance, like a ___-black ink should.) and Diamine 'Twilight' blue-black. Again from a wet nib at first/second glance it looks black.

    Today I am practicing Spencerian with a black and blue striped Baoer 388 with a F nib. These Parker clones are surprisingly good. I normally donít use them around the house, but I found the rest of a pack that I ordered in January while stuck in jury duty writing for hours. I had to go through a metal detector and bag search and be around unsavory people every day, so I didnít want to bring anything of value in with me. Thus started the inexpensive fountain pen rabbit hole that I currently find myself in.
