Jinhao X450/X750 Fountain Pen Nib Swapping
The tip of the round body is designed because the writing head is very sharp and is used to write a thin hairspring. Therefore, there is an inevitable phenomenon of hanging paper. This is common in the round body nib and can only be adapted and cannot be changed. The general solution is to use ink or a rotating ink absorber to squeeze the ink to fill the tongue, and then the pen point bifurcates several times.

Dimensions: unposted length: mm 4.If you have a Jinhao X or Xyou can greatly increase the versatility of the pen by swapping out the nib with a variety of available 6 size nibs. In fact, it was because of this feature that Jinhao really got on my radar in the first place.
It all stemmed from conversations going on about which pens would fit a Goulet nib. I also knew that there would be a variety of other pens that you could fit with the Goulet nibs, and Jinhao was one brand that people started talking about as a part of that conversation. I knew there was a great opportunity here to marry the Jinhao pen and Goulet nib.
So in the spirit of education geared towards the tinkering pen enthusiast, I recorded this video to instruct you how to swap a Goulet nib or any other 6 size nib you have handy with your Jinhao X or X The nib and feed are friction fit in the pen and there is a positive stop to keep it from going in too far.
The nib housing is cut to fit the nib and feed exactly, so it practically orients them properly without you having to do anything special as long as you stick them in the right way.
The writing enthusiast in me is jumping up and down at the ability to swap nibs on yet another one of my pens. I love love love being able to do this. Previous Next. Related Posts. How to Start a Gratitude Journal.
Go to Top.I feel compelled to do that here. Until recently, neither the or the x were in my collection. Eye-catching for sure especially with this bright orange finish. And very much typical Jinhao.
And yeah. I told you I like orange. Add in the bright orange color, and I think it looks more comically gigantic than it does a classy homage. The clip is fairly simple and sports the Jinhao chariot logo. Other than the size and bright color, the rest of the design is simple and understated, which is good, because this pen does not need any bling. The cap screws off the barrel, which is a nice touch. It does post, but that makes the pen very back-heavy.
The section consists of a smooth, black grip with a silver ring at the front end and silver coupler threads. Finally, the comes with a standard 6 medium nib. It has an interlocking pattern etched around the outer edge of the nib with the Jinhao name and chariot logo etched in the center.
The pen is mostly solid. Despite the high-end pen that the is modeled after, the build quality, in my opinion, is pretty cheap. One of the first things I noticed is that the orange lacquer is not evenly applied. In addition to uneven application, the lacquer chips very easily. I baby my pens. There is no reason this chip should be there. And one final gripe with the lacquer: my pen has a tiny fiber stuck in it. Either way, the combined issues with the lacquer are pretty disappointing for a flagship pen.
For example, the finial screws right off the cap because they only used a microscopic amount of glue to hold it in place. You can therefore easily remove the clip and the silver band between the cap and finial.
The finial should not come off this easily. The end cap stays in place like it should, but not the finial. This is a win. I noticed the barrel inner threads have a lot of dings and nicks in them. As I mentioned before, the cap screws onto the pen. Inside the cap, there is a black, plastic inner cap. This inner cap is what screws onto the barrel threads, and it does a good job keeping the pen from drying out.
For the most part, the pen writes pretty well, but there are two things I find annoying.Weekly New User Thread: Ask your questions here first. All weekly scheduled threads. Guide to getting your first pen. Jinhao x vs. Jinhao x self. I was looking at both of these pens and I was wondering if there was really any difference between them? They seem pretty much the same to me, and I don't know which one to get. Any help would be appreciated. The X has a longer black end cap on the barrel than the X Although it isn't actually a cap like a blind cap or anything, it's just colored black.
The X is also slightly lighter, maybe grams if that. I think the X also has molded finger grips on the section, where-as the X is smooth. Aside from that, they are essentially the same except for the finishes.
I have only had good experiences with my Jinhaos- from the nib to the quality of construction, everything has been great. I definitely recommend them. Other Chinese pens that are usually problem free are Duke and Picasso. I have both but I prefer the It is less tapered than the Both are nice pens with about the same size and weight.
The x has a grip section with defined finger indents while the x is smooth at the grip.Jinhao x750 Fountain Pen Review! Amazon \u0026 AliExpress
The aesthetics are slightly different i. They are wonderful pens to tinker around with and have a lot of tipping to practice nib regrindingbut I would not suggest them as a reliable main pen, especially for someone new.
In my experience with them, they tend to write quite wet and their nibs are generally smooth out of the box, while some do need a bit of smoothing. I have both. I have a lot of Jinhaos, actually, and they all work really well for me. The grip on the x is tapered plastic, like someone said, and the x is just smooth. If you have Amazon Prime or student etcyou can get them off Amazon with the free two day shipping.
They're a little more expensive but you don't have to wait the 3 weeks from China for the pen to get to you. I've waited the 3 weeks from China I have waited as well.
I am so impatient though, and also, by the time they usually get here I have forgotten what I've ordered. I just got a x from Goulet -- picked it up today, matter of fact. There is a solid video on their site which explains a few of the differences.Still a few pens for sale here. The fact is some countries of origin get a bad rap for cheap pens when in fact, relatively speaking, they are quite good for the price charged. On a recent keyboard shopping excursion to my loved Jet Pens I needed a few more dollars to reach the magical free shipping minimum order level.
One of the side bar advertisements was promoting the Jinhao line and specifically the X that would put my cart over the top to ride free on the USPS railroad. I have read about some inconsistent quality control on the Jinhao line but I decided to take a chance and worse case I could break out all that nib tuning and smoothing supplies I have bought over time and been scared to destroy any nibs.
I got exactly what Jinhao strives to put out and I applaud them. Not a real blingy gold but just kind of gold. Not unpleasant but not a color I would usually pick. The chrome furniture and accents are pleasing to the aesthetics of the pen. The cap is of the snap on type and it functions well. Clip is nothing special just does its job with no complaining.
Fit and finish are both good and I found nothing specifically wrong with the pen or anything I would do different. Especially considering its target price point. The X comes with a converter which is a real bargain at this price.

It works well and pleasantly does not have that annoying rattle while it sits in the pen like I have experienced with othermuch more expensive pens. Right out of the box the ink flowed to the nib quickly, I got a smooth writing experience with no skipping or hard starts. The Private Reserve Orange Crush ink creep is courtesy of the author. THAT would uproot my Varsity as my favorite budget throwaway in a much nicer appearing package. I may read up on how the different Jinhao models differ and maybe even pick up a few of the Xs and hold them for giveaways to those I encounter that express an interest in fountain pens.
Thanks for stopping by and if you enjoyed this post I would love to send you an email every time I have a new post. Click Here to Subscribe. I had two Jinhao Xs that would only write if the feed was manually primed open the pen, squeeze cartridge or advance converter, close pen, write until that squeeze of ink was exhausted, repeat.
I also had three Baoers — one would not write at all, and two had the issue that the Jinhaos did. Cleaning the pens, amending the ink channel a tip gleaned from FPN all failed to resolve the problem, and I gave up on them entirely. Mine were all eBay purchases, and would have had to back to China. Thanks John for coming by. I have not tried any of the other popular chinese brands but glad you at least got a couple of good performers in there. This was only on a fluke to reach a min order requirement.Jump to content.
It doesn't want to get out again, however. Posted 16 April - Knowledge is the only wealth that increases when shared. Back to top 3 amber amber Dipped Only. I've managed to find ones in solid red and blue finishes similar to the purple one on the upper row. That's interesting, please show. I thought the solid reds were all the X but I, of course, might be wrong. One of my grail pens is the Sheaffer Legacy in the faux leather. I've never seen this on the X, maybe I'll have to settle for one of these instead.
Posted 17 April - The blue and the red X, mentioned by amber, are not sold by many sellers, but those who have it, have it in quantities of up to Mech-for-i : do you have a search term in Hanzi for me? I am now interested to locate at least a picture of that Lunar Year LE. Mech-for-i Thank you!! I am going to search for it from time to time. I might get lucky one day.
Posted 08 May - Posted 09 May - Distinguish from what? From the newly ordered red one? IMO, they look very different on the photos. Anyway, it looks different on my photos - which is near to the reality - just re-confirmed - from the Ebay photos.
They might have changed the design, I don't know. Otherwise, the Chinese sellers are using Photoshop extensively.
I have several doubles because I thought a pen presented in very flowery words and new photos would be a new model. When it arrived, it was the same old story.
I might need to order one then. I was asking because I do have one but I've never really quite understood what the pattern is, mine is quite dark, although it does seem to have those sort of golden splashes Posted 29 May - I only used Jowo steel nibs with my Jinhaos.
Why do you ask, are Jowo 14k of different size as the steel Jowos? Community Forum Software by IP. Community Blogs.
