The $3.99 Hero Accounting Fountain Pen

by Tony Thomas

I was scanning eBay the other day and came across an extra-fine nib fountain pen for the ridiculously low price of $3.99 including shipping. It seemed like a deal that was too good to be true!

When I received it, I was pleasantly surprised.

The Hero 9296 is called an Accounting Fountain pen.  It is very a very compact pen and writes very fine. The hooded EF nib is very nice and great for precise writing tasks.  I found the nib to be pretty smooth for an EF.  

It has an all metal body and even comes with a simple converter.  

In any case, the Hero 9296 is a great deal for the price!

Note: You can see a small paint bubble on the pen that is barely noticeable.  IMHO, that doesn't detract from the value of the pen but adds a bit of character.  The bubble is visible in the bottom photo.
