Does Not Add Up For Me April 23, 2014
Reviewer: Wallace Welch from Navarre, FL United States  
The wonderful cost goes when you add a Standard International Cartridge Converter to get some usable ink capacity, then you must add an improved Goulet #6 Fine Nib to slide across the page.  By then you are basically at a Lamy Safari.  I wish Jinhao good luck in making the pen much lighter.  The have a chunky Monteblanc Diplomat sized pen that weighs like a brick.  At least the Diplomat is clunky but light.  Hard to believe the Diplomat went for $36 through the New York Times more than a few years ago.  If Jinhao can get the weight down, I'm more than willing to give them a new try.

sweet looking but... April 19, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Minneapolis  
I have the Jinhao 159 for less than a month. I like the heft and look of the pen and when it writes, I like the wet flow too. However even after multiple flushes, the pen writes well for a couple of days and then clogs up becoming difficult to start up again. A quick emptying and refilling does the trick but not a very exciting protocol. Today the screw-on cap that holds the clip loosened up and I discovered the threads are stripped. Time for some plastic glue. I think the life expectancy of this pen is very short. Back to my TWSBI.

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,
