I review an aluminum pen which appears to be quite similar to the Lamy Al Star.
This week, I did a video which started as a long review of the Goulet nibs. However, as the video evolved, I realized I was recording a fountain pen rodeo with 6 different pens in one. The Goulet nibs are made by Jowo, the same company as the Edison nibs, and they come in six
This pen is quite similar to a Lamy Vista. Of course, I wish the Lamy Vista came in this color. It’s an attractive pen. That said, it is no Lamy. It has the same faults as other Jinhao pens and makes me wonder why I even bother trying that brand.

I purchased this pen because I really loved the case it came in. In fact, the case is still sitting on my end table in the living room filled with nibs and other fountain pen paraphernalia. Jinhao makes some ridiculously gaudy pens that are not to my taste. This one is relatively restrained. The clip
The Jinhao 950 is a unique pen with a fun dragon printed on its porcelain body. I don’t own any other porcelain pens. It looks good too! The nib is a little smaller than other pens, and I don’t like that it dries out a bit over night. The result is that it starts dark when
I review the Jinhao x450 in my newly repainted living room. I was not impressed by this pen.
