Jinhao 599 Review
Disclaimer : I got these from Pens N’ More (Links into the 599A on the web site) as an assessment sample at no cost to myself and I get to keep the sample. This does not affect the way I measure the pen, when I still consider exactly how much it could have cost myself generally. Easily don’t like some thing I’ll say so.
You will find presently three various Jinhao 599 designs that i know of. The biggest difference between them may be the nib, ink screen and body/cap product, usually they’re nearly identical.
The initial variation came in a steel limit and barrel with a synthetic part. The nib features a lamy empowered shape. The barrel does not have an ink window, and includes a metallic Jinhao brand publishing. I have assessed this unique design here.
Then emerged the 599 with a barrel that resembled the Safari a lot more. The limit and barrel had been altered to synthetic in place of metal, making the pen lighter and mostly synthetic. In addition included could be the ink screen. The lamy inspired nib had been no more made use of, changing it instead is a vintage open style nib like you would discover on some of the smaller Jinhao and Baoer pens. (However some different types of the 599A might also include the lamy inspired nib, but I’ve however to receive one yourself because configuration).
The latest modification 's almost the same as the 2nd in most way except one main distinction. The nib on the newest variation is a hooded one with a smaller line width which seems become an extra fine.
Appearance sensible when capped all three versions look about the same outside of the marketing and ink window.
The area between all three variations be seemingly almost identical with the exact same size and shape.
Also since the section and limit seem to be identical dimensions, the parts appear to be swappable. The metal cap is thinner in material, nevertheless the internal limit which may be seen effortlessly when you look at the clear models be seemingly just like well. What this means is i could do things such as place the first generation area w/ lamy-inspired nib onto a 3nd generation barrel with all the ink screen, and 2rd generation translucent limit ahead to get rid of with this odd-looking contraption. (or you might in other words the area from a primary generation section/nib/feed onto either a moment or third generation human anatomy and limit).
Physically I prefer the original variation, specially thereupon lamy-inspired nib. But I am able to begin to see the appeal of the later generations being lighter in weight, closer to that the Safari it copies.
