For the money it's good. April 2, 2014
Reviewer: MP from Connecticut  
This pen was pretty good out of the box, with a decently smooth nib.  The cheap converter that comes with it didn't exactly inspire confidence, but it will take any international converter.

In fact, my 159 is now an excellent pen by virtue of swapping out the nib with one of Goulet's German ones.  While I was at it, I put in a Pelikan converter that I already had.  The new nib alone cost more than the original pen, though.  Still not terribly expensive.

It is rather fat and heavy, though.  Probably not the best pen for writing hours at a stretch.

Amazing value, but not perfect March 31, 2014
Reviewer: Greg Calabria from Huntersville, NC United States  
This is a great pen, my 2nd of these actually. The first one broke when I pulled out the converter, the little bit of the feed that the converter attaches to snapped off. Not great, but I also pull the thing in and out all the time to switch inks. The nib also has a bit of a cheapness to it; it's very nice to look at and even has a bit of flex, but also can bend without warning and need to be re-bent into shape. Still, it's beautiful, and balanced without cap (horribly top heavy with cap), and it's the fattest cheapest pen money can buy, but still very much worth having.

I am amazed March 26, 2014
Reviewer: Jim McKean from Bloomington, IN United States  
This heavy,  beautifully finished pen writes smoothly and starts instantly.  I bought it to practice some  nib adjustment and it has become a favorite. Highly recommended,

Jinhao 159 Fountain Pen March 25, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Minneapolis, MN United States  
Big lovely and heavy-ish pen. Forget Mont-blonc, this is the way to go at $12.50. Occasional flow start up problems but nothing a few taps won't cure.

This is one big fountain pen March 14, 2014
Reviewer: Stephen Donahue from Midlothian, TX United States  
This pen reminds me of the monster-sized eggs that our chickens occasional lay.  I have to think that the hen that laid an egg that size has got to be hurting.  Perhaps the factory that cranks these out in China suffers afterwards as well....
This pen easily dwarfs the second-largest pen in my collection.  It still fits my hand comfortably, and the nib is smooth, not scratchy.  The nib is not my preferred extra fine size, but is is acceptable for writing in medical charts.  It is a bit big for my shirt pocket, but still worth buying.
