About this deal

Body on the X750 is a little 'straighter' rounded off at the ends, X450 had a gradual curve towards the end. The pen writes a consistent, wet line for a short period of time, but the line becomes progressively weaker, and on occasion the flow has stopped, in the course of an hour of note-taking.

Another issue we have is that the pen has a wet ink flow which can spread over the paper if you’re not fast enough with it. The pen’s cap also isn’t very secure so it tends to rattle around when posted.

VAT and Currency

This pen writes fairly decently and if you keep your expectations at a reasonable level then you will be pleased with the results. It’s smooth, not too wet, and has good line variation. The 993 is a fountain pen with a cap shaped in the form of a shark head, aimed at children or as a novelty pen. [4] 8802 'Shell' [ edit ] When it comes to writing, this pen isn’t as smooth as a high-budget fountain pen. But for a starter pen, it’s a great place to learn the ropes. I do agree that the fine gold nib writer pens you can get from other companies that come in starting at 75€ and upwards will write much more nicely than any Jinhao-FPR frankenpen you can cobble together. But those aren't bargain writers, they're investments. If you only want to experiment with questions like "do I like writing with a stub nib or an italic nib?" or "do I prefer a medium or a fine nib?" the FPR nibs are a great way to do that. Some models, like the No products found., are targeted towards those who want something more dramatic Other pens, like the Jinhao x750 or x450, come in the standard cigar shape and a variety of colors.

When the Jinhao is in the hand, it’s extremely heavy. This is good for those who prefer heavier pens but it won’t be for those who prefer lighter acrylic pens. In the beginning of my fountain pen quest I was hooked by variety of reasonably priced chinese fountain pens. Jinahos and Baoers propelled me into the hobby. With time I switched to more expensive pens with more nuanced design but I still enjoy some of chinese creations. Jinhao X750 is among my favorite ones. Whether you’re an author or visual artist, we recommend the X450 or X750 if you want good quality and affordable pens. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns so get out your notepad and start writing. The 163 version features a silver-coloured trim and clip while the 165 model features a gold-coloured trim and clip. Smooth writer- this really surprised me. I was expecting a pen this cheap to write…cheap. But it's smooth, and though there's some starting and skipping issues here and there, it exceeded my expectations.

Customer Reviews

I'm satisfied with having made 3 previously unusable pens usable for me; it's a little more expensive than I would have liked with the customs fee, but still totally reasonable, especially as I got all this during the Easter sale. FPR has sales fairly often, so you can probably get a good deal on these nibs if you want to experiment. The good news is that the pen allows for posting and is very light. The pen puts down a nice amount of ink onto the paper and allows for a good upside-down flow. Jinhao’s products are great for anyone just starting. The inclusion of free converters along with its huge roster of pens makes it a good way to start your fountain pen collection.

And a closer picture of the X450 I had with the Goulet nib installed (where you can see the difference int he grip). The plastic grip section tapers towards a metal ring separating it from the nib. As this ring is slightly wider than the grip section it may serve as a nice resting point for fingers if you grip close to the nib. No box- I can't really complain too much about this one, because frankly we could sell it with a box if we wanted to…there just isn't one provided by the manufacturer. Since the main appeal of this pen is value, adding in a box and driving up the price to cover it just didn't seem practical to us. It's not at all uncommon for less expensive pens like the Platinum Preppy, and Pilot Varsity to sell without a box. Some retailers carrying the X750 choose to sell it with a box, it's up to each retailer if they choose to do so. All Jinhao pens come with the standard number 6 sized stainless steel nibs. This means finding a replacement won’t be a chore, since you can find these in pretty much any local stationery store. Jinhao markets itself as the best starting point for beginners who are looking to dip their toes into fountain pens.

This is a simple fountain pen that writes without having too many issues. There is a good amount of ink output and it flows smoothly.
