A beautiful and very large oversized Chinese fountain pen. Both barrel and cap are metal based and covered in glossy lacquer. The pen has a good substantial feel to it and has a very good writing balance. The cap has a high-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.
Size: Length - 5 15/16 inches capped; 6 7/16 inches posted.
