A lovely chunky oversized Chinese fountain pen. This pen is new old-stock, and has never been used. Needless the say there is no damage on this pen. Both barrel and cap are made from a lacquer overlay onto probably a brass base with gold plated fittings. The lacquer on this pen is in a mustardy yellow metallic colour. The pen is not as heavy as it looks, but nevertheless has a good substantial feel to it, and has a very good writing balance, and the whole pen design, actually, is heavily influenced by pens from the 1930s "streamline" movement. The cap has a large lacquered and domed top button, and a very well designed and sturdy chrome plated pocket clip. The cap band is also wide and is imprinted with "Jinhao" to the front and the model number "X750" to the rear. The domed barrel end is also of brushed steel. The steel nib is also imprinted "Jinhao". This is a cartridge/converter pen. You unscrew the barrel to fit wither a standard international size cartridge or you can use the original standard ink converter that is already fitted.
The large nib on this pen is very smooth and writes with a good wet and consistent medium width line.
