A lovely chunky oversized Chinese fountain pen. Both barrel and cap are made from a red, gold and black lacquered overlay onto probably a brass base with chrome plated fittings. 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 lacquered. 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.
