I recently bought two Jinhao pens to add to my collection which now totals nine. I thought now is as good a time as any to wax lyrical about the properties of these cheap but excellent Chinese made pens.
Jinhao pens are made by the Shanghai Qiangu Stationery Co.,ltd in China. The company was established in 1988 in Jiangxi Province, but relocated to Shanghai in 2003. The company has two manufacturing factories and employs about 300 workers. And that is about all you can find out about the company as the Jinhao Pens web site no longer exists
I have been thinking about hot pink a lot lately , whoops sorry should be vibrant pink as that is what Lamy call it. I am not sure what has been driving it but it’s as good a time as any to look at Lamys ink of the year to go with the limited edition vibrant pink al-star.
At last the ink that inspired me to start this, I just wish I had more time hence the infrequent posts.
A colleague gave me a sample of this ink about 3 years ago - said it was lovely but not suitable for work as a 'very unprofessional' colour. I am not sure what was meant by that as I can find no definition for a professional ink colour, I don't believe we have to stick to blues and blacks though I am cautious or circumspect with my use of the ink.
