We've put together this incredibly affordable set to dive into the world of fountain pens. This bundle comes with: a gray Jinhao Shark fountain pen and an included converter for use with bottled ink; 2ml ink samples of Diamine Earl Grey, Noodler's Black, and Noodler's Lexington Gray; and a small lined Clairefontaine Classic side staplebound notebook with a randomly assorted color cover (may be different from what is pictured).
Attack your writing with a Jinhao Shark fountain pen! This fun plastic pen is a good writer for the beginner or the long-time enthusiast, and the hooded extra-fine steel nib provides a nice crisp line. It fills via standard international cartridge/converter (converter included, no ink) or can be converted to be eyedropper-filled. The shark head cap unscrews open and pushes to post. The translucent triangular grip assists in proper pen position. Perfect for kids, the avid shark enthusiast, or anyone who enjoys a fun affordable pen.
By converting this pen to an eyedropper, you can fill the entire barrel with ink for maximum ink capacity! All you need to do is add an o-ring and a small amount of silicone grease to the threads (both available separately).
