JINHAO 500 Clay Mask Fountain Pen - Fine Nib
The 500 is one of JINHAO's most exquisitely designed and pleasantly feeling, yet affordable fountain pens available. With a high quality writing nib, a securely posting cap, a comfortable weight and in very attractive designs, the 500 is bound to please as a gift to yourself or another.
The construction is solid lacquered brass, with gold coloured edging and either lacquered brass or embossed coating. The pen feels smooth in the hand and has some minor weight but is light enough to write very comfortably for long periods.
The grip section is smooth, tapered and very comfortable. Even though this pen looks excellent on display, it also does extremely well as an every day carry pen as it is very pleasant to write with for long periods.
The cap is also made of solid lacquered brass, and has a strong but flexible clip, making it very easy to pocket, but also allowing it to hold on tightly. The finial is a tapered Gold coloured cap with a black central circlet, while the base is designed to allow the cap to post securely, adding a level of design charm to the pen. The pen can be used both uncapped and posted. Opening and closing the 500 gives a solid and satisfying "click".
The nib is a two-toned stainless steel medium-fine nib, with some minor element of flex. JINHAO nibs are renowned for having a noticeably buttery smoothness to them, and are a genuine pleasure to write with, despite their affordability, and the 500 does much to please here.
The feed is a JINHAO patent original, which delivers a continuous, unbroken flow of ink. The true pleasure of writing with a fountain pen lies in the smooth and rich feeling of ink flowing to paper, and the feed of this pen provides this in droves.
The converter, which most of our pens come with, is very easily operated, holds a considerable amount of ink and is easily cleaned and maintained. The whole pen can be disassembled and cleaned.
All in all, the 500 is a beautiful, elegant pen with enough subtle sophistication to be used absolutely anywhere, and the right amount of design charm to display beautifully on a desk or mantle. It is comparable in quality to other models that can cost hundreds of dollars, but at an insanely competitive price. Both comfortable to write with and truly pleasing to display, we are proud to provide it for you today.
