The 999 is an impressive pen to behold.
The construction is solid molded brass, with gold coloured steel trim and embedded imitation jewels. The noticeable weight is a testament to its solid brass construction, weighing in at a shocking 100grams.
The grip section is smooth and tapered and makes this pen very comfortable to write with. The thread from the cap sits below the level of the fingers and does not impede comfort.
The nib is a two-toned stainless steel size 6 medium nib. Unlike other Asian fountain pens, this is a true medium nib, with some element of flex, making it perfect for cursive script and flourishes. As it is a size 6, it can also be swapped out with similar sized nibs from other manufactures.
The feed is a JINHAO patent original, which delivers a continuous, unbroken flow of ink. The true pleasure of writing with a fountain pen lies in the smooth and rich feeling of ink flowing to paper, and the feed of this pen provides this in droves.
The cap is a screw top, meaning that it will not fall off while being carried, preventing ink spills. It is also made of solid sculptured brass, with a small gold dome on the finial. The pen can be used both uncapped and posted, as the cap screws onto the base of the pen. The cap screws on and off very smoothly with no squeak.
The converter, which most of our pens come with, is very easily operated, holds a considerable amount of ink and is easily cleaned and maintained. The whole pen can be disassembled and cleaned.
All in all, the 999 Dragon is a sturdy, elegant and pleasurable pen to use. It is comparable in quality to other models that can cost hundreds of dollars, but at an insanely competitive price. This Pen comes with 5 Black Cartridges and an elegant Faux Leather Gift Box.
