A beautiful and bvery large oversized Chinese fountain pen. Although unboxed, 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 glossy jet blac kresin. The pen has a good substantial feel to it, and has a very good writing balance. The cap has a hight domed top with a substantial chrome plated pocket clip. This has a shield at the shoulder with the Jinhao chariot logo engraved on it. The cap band is quite wide and has the "Jinhao" name engraved at the front, and the model number "159" engraved at the back. The barrel has an elongated end giving the pen an overall streamlined torpedo shape. The large 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 generous medium width line.
