JINHAO 599 ALSTAR DESIGNER GLOSSY RED FOUNTAIN PEN Medium NIB
Jinhao 599 has a brass body with a deep, glossy Red lacquer finish. A full metal pen for about a pen comes with a converter and pen takes standard ink cartridges and standard converters.
It's a sleek, modern looking pen with a wide, flat pocket clip that looks a lot less like a paper clip so there is no chance of mistaking it for a Lamy Safari but in case you miss that it has JINHAO boldly emblazoned on the barrel. It's quite a change from Jinhao's traditional designs and hopefully an indication of things to come from Jinhao.
