Jinhao X450, great pen

Something is happening to the fountain pen industry. Like in every other field, we have to justify why we don't use Chinese fountain pens much often.

This time the example is of a beautiful, quite heavy and well balanced Jinhao X450. Writes great, standard convert and last but for sure not least it looks awesome. You take your pen, start writing and people will look at you.

The stiff nib is for those who don't like the changing line of an English calligraphy but for sure is neat.

The Pilot Iroshizuku ink serie is very appropriate for this pen. Very fluent and impressive light in color.

And here once again the priority of Rhodia over Moleskine when a fountain pen touches the paper. This time in a sample with the Jinhao X149.
