My other new pen came in finally!
Took almost 1 month even to get here, but it made it!
This one is really, really, really expensive… $4.50. And it took $2.50 for shipping. lol.
It’s a Jinhao 996. Just couldn’t pass up a tiger print pen! Its really solid, nice and hefty, if not all metal its close to it. Feels like an F nib, smooth writer so far. Came with a piston converter in it too! I have a sample of Monteverde Cherry Danish in it to start.
Would Not feed from filling the converter separately, even after forcing ink all the way up through the feed… Un filled and filled with converter in the pen, through the nib/feed, and then its perfect, no issues at all.
I hate filling that way, tends to get too wet on the feed and you always end up dipping the grip section and getting messy. Hopefully now that its primed itll flow/fill the other way from now on.
My only slight complaint is that the cap doesn’t post very securely on the back of the pen. I have to press it on then twist s little for it to grip. Even then its not really secure, and takes verry little to come off. You cant shake it off, but any grip of the cap and it comes off.
It’ll be fine, it stays well enough for writting, but you can’t fidget with the pen much between sentences.
And with the Prefounte.
