    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.
