This is an awesome Jinhao Shark Pen Set!!!
The media could not be loaded. Very fun set for those wanting to color with fountain pens and those that would like to have their kids play with fountain pens. These are the Jinhao Mako Shark fountain pens also known as the jinhao 993 non-hooded version. This pen is part of a set of 12 pens that cam...

Jinhao Shark Fountain Pen Review — PASTOR AND PEN
Obviously not built for professional environments, the Shark would be perfect for getting kids started on fountain pens. A pack of them, along with a box of cartridges, could get you through a college semester. Although the nib quality can be hit-or-miss, the pen is solid

Jinhao 993 Shark Pen- Review — Duck's Doodles
s postable and fits very snugly on the end. The shark fin replaces the clip, so while this is a clipless pen this pen won't roll away if you have the cap on or posted.The nib is a hooded nib, something prior to purchasing this pen I had no idea existed

Fun, but ink not included
The pens are not prefilled with ink. Some Jinhao products make that very clear - product description includes (Pen does NOT come with ink). I would like to have that added to this product as well. When I ordered that was not clear in the description. All other "disposable fountain pens" I have purch...

Newcomer wanting to get into fountain pens, had a couple small questions
I use mine for therapy, general fun, but also quick notes, sketches and pretty much anything that you would need pen and paper for. The Platinum Preppy is a well known super cheap fountain pen, and such is the Jinhao Shark. The learning curve was nonexistent to me, as I’ve used fountain pens all my life, but I have let people borrow mine with the note “use it like a normal pen, just don’t press on it”.

Fun colorful pens that work very well.
Love them. They are super colorful, coming in a pack of 12 with converters for everyone of them. Two of the 12 pens is a solid white pen and a clear pen that looks amazing. Overall, the grip is very comfortable, with allows for multiple writing angles, which is needed with a bend nib. Also, the feel...

I used 4 of them; 2 already cracked at the outer body
It's a copy cat to Pilot PLumix or penmanship but smaller, flimsy, in my opinion. I would say the Pluix has the quality that last I have pilot plumjx for a long time, and these jinhoa not so much. It will break if you not careful in storage. I already linked up two, and one is leaking a tiny bit. 2 ...

Big Boy/Girl/Human Pens-What qualifies in your opinion?
Anything but a Jinhao Shark.
EDIT: I'd also say anything beyond your budget shouldn't qualify since responsibility is central to maturity.

Cute pens that work
These are cute pens. This package comes with a set of 12 with various colors. All have converters included. The set I purchased have extra fine hooded nibs. I haven’t any hard starts. I’ve seen a video where someone complained about that but I haven’t seen it. It could be they have different nibs. F...
