    jimjo1031 never bloomed myself

    A while back, I got a great deal on bidding for sixteen Jinhao fountain pens. They are pretty much copies of Lamy fountain pens with medium nibs and transparent bodies. The ones I have used write pretty good and have been reliable. I will pick two winners, each getting two fountain pens and will decide on who gets what colors, unless I go the route of the first winner picking them. They come with ink converters, but if requested, I will include an ink cartridge for either beginners or people who always use cartridges. I just have to find them from what ever box they were packed in from my move. So if you've always wanted to try out a fountain pen, or already use them, here's a chance to get two of them. I will most likely end this PIF the second week of next month, I'll let you know. I will have to keep this CONUS, good luck.............

    Edit: A brief article on filling and care for fountain pens for you newbies out there:

    I would love to try using a fountain pen. A friend of mine at my last job had a collection of fountain pens and I always thought they were pretty cool! I would definitely consider myself a beginner having never used a fountain pen before. I’m in!

    Cool PIF. Always wondered about fountain pens (ever since ordering a knot from TGN, I guess). Another rabbit hole indeed. Count me in, please.

    Nice! Not in, being the proud owner of three incredibly messy fountains from Levenger, but I do appreciate the "lost" art of writing with these tools.

    Just got my first FP, APilot Metro a couple of weeks ago...been resisting the PAD since. Only have a few hobbies but they're all expensive ones (SR, fly fishing, golf, now FP's).

    Great PIF @jimjo1031! Not in as I keep a set should the artistic urge strike. In combination with basic watercolors, an ink pen makes for fun doodles.
