KG021 Kaigelu No. 316 (Medium)

Date: c2000s

Size: Length - 5 3/8 inches capped; 6 15/16 inches posted.

A high quality Chinese made pen.  Kaigelu is Chinese for Kangaroo.  This is the model 316 fountain pen.  It bears a striking resemblance to a Centennial sized Parker Duofold.  It is made from what feels like very good quality resin, with a weighted barrel and cap to give it a good substantial feel in the hand, without being too heavy. The cap has a large tapered black top button that holds on the washer-style gold plated pocket clip.  On the top of the button, inset into the surface is the Kaigelu logo.  Below the clip is a pair of raised gold plated bands.  The end of the barrel is black to match the cap top.  It is separated from the main barrel by a narrow gold plated band.  The cap unscrews, revealing a very nicely shaped black section with gold plated bands fore and aft.  The steel nib is two-tone and quite large, with the Kaigelu name and logo imprinted on it.  It is a medium point.  This is a cartridge/converter pen.  You unscrew the barrel to fit either a standard international size cartridge or you can use the original ink converter that is already fitted.  Please note that the ink converter is a screw-in type.

The nib on this pen is very smooth and writes with a good wet and consistent medium width line. 

Kaigelu pens seem to be of a much higher quality than the usual Chinese imports.
