I found a batch of these for a really low price, and thought I’d give them a try. Like many Chinese pens, they run a little dry for my tastes out of the box. However, also like most Chinese pens, a bit of nib-flossing and tuning gets it writing perfectly. These are a solid, well-built pen that performs well; I have the blue and burgundy as well. The clip is especially robust, as it has a spring hinge built into the cap.

Funny thing; You could be forgiven for thinking this was the new Conklin Victory – as it is DEAD UP the same pen. Shame on you Conklin!
