JINHAO 601 Clay Mask Fountain Pen - Fine Nib
Jinhao 601 Fountain Pen
The 601 is a smooth, trendy and lavishly comfortable fountain pen that has a very modern, charming design and writes smoothly without error or skip.
The construction is solid brass, with a chrome clip and a central beveled band. The pen feels smooth in the hand and has some minor weight but is light enough to write very comfortably for long periods.
The grip section is textured and contoured, giving the pen an almost industrial chic feel when the cap is removed. This texture provides excellent stability when writing and allows for precision and comfort. The chrome rings below the grip are soft and smoothed and do not impede writing. This pen is the perfect office all-day writer or journal buddy, as its weight and grip makes it comfortable enough to hold and write with for very long durations without any wrist pain or cramping.
The cap is also made of solid lacquered brass, and has a strong but flexible arrow-shaped clip, making it very easy to pocket, but also allowing it to hold on tightly. The finial is black with a chrome ring, while the base is simple and rounded with a single bevel at the base, adding a level of design charm to the pen. The pen can be used both uncapped and posted, as the cap sits very tightly on the base of the pen. Opening and closing the 601 gives a solid and satisfying "click".
The nib is a stainless steel medium-fine nib, with some minor element of flex. JINHAO nibs are renowned for having a noticeably buttery smoothness to them, and are a genuine pleasure to write with, despite their affordability, and the 601does not drop the ball here.
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 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 601 is a well-made, smooth writing pen that stands out for its sleek and modern style, snazzy features, sturdiness and longevity and its refreshing comfort of use. It is comparable in quality to other models that can cost hundreds of dollars, but at an insanely competitive price. We are proud to provide it for you today.
