Wing Sung 612
Last night on Twitter, DIYSara asked about the fountain pen only experiment and I told her my heavy hitter today was my Wing Sung 612. I kept Bay State Blue in this for a while and I am pretty sure it stained the plastic. (click for larger view) I have not tried to polish and remove it yet, but it's definitely there. No Biggie.
There are a ton of Hero pens similar to this on Ebay and at a really good price. I got this one un-inked as a present a few years ago.
It's been in heavy use since then. The packaging makes me think that one was a little older, but I am not sure of the date. I have no idea
how they date these (if they do at all.)
Believe me, this is really cheap paper with Private Reserve ink and I could use this combo all day long without a bleed or a feather or a glob. It's a Parker knock off and I don't try to pretend it's a 51. It's an honest pen that puts an honest line of ink on the paper and to me, that is refreshing.
