JINHAO 599-1 Red Fountain Pen - Fine Nib
The 599 fountain pen has always been JINHAO's most versatile pen on show, and the 599-1 is a great advancement on the classic model with some major revamps and improvements. What's more, it is available at a very affordable price. The 599-1 features a distinctively sleek and modern design, with an improved nib and feed system from JINHAO's earlier design.
The body and cap are constructed from lightweight but sturdy lacquered brass. The clip is quite flexible and fits well in any pocket.
The cap provides a pleasantly sturdy "click" whenever opened or closed. The contoured grip section is built from gloss plastic and provides a comfortable writing experience.
The feed of this pen is a JINHAO patented original and provides a continuous and moist flow of ink.
The Nib, which is fine and in stainless steel, delivers a smooth, velvety writing experience and has slightly more flex to it that the classic 599. JINHAO pens are well renowned for having a buttery smoothness in their nibs and the 599-1 does not drop the ball here.
The pen comes with a patented JINHAO converter for use with bottled fountain pen ink.
The 599-1 is the perfect pen for fountain pen beginners as it is easy to fill, write with and maintain. It is also a perfect starter for students practicing handwriting or children who have received their "pen licence" at school. It is also an excellent EDC (every day carry) pen for both fountain pen aficionados and novices alike, due to its lightweight design, ease of use and smooth reliability, but is also a great addition to any well-loved fountain pen collection.
