So, I bought a couple more fountain pens – the Jinhao 993 Shark in green and blue! Aren’t they cool? I’m going to use them at work, with Iroshizuku Ama-iro and Chiku-rin inks. I love them! What is nice about these pens is that not only are they dirt cheap, but they come with converters which makes refilling with ink super easy.
Highly recommended as a fun, beginner fountain pen. Enjoy!
Today I received a new Jinhao fountain pen from Ebay. It was only $0.99! It actually writes very nicely, smooth and comfortable. The ink flows at a nice rate and I even though I don’t write very fast, there’s no skipping at all when I did some quick scribbles. It’s very light (maybe a little too light) but very comfortable to hold, and relatively thin, so I can keep it within the spiral of my plain Mead notebook. The clip is basic but works well. And did I mention it was only 99 cents (including shipping)? Wow.
