I'm always on the lookout for interesting fountain pens. When I saw the Jinhao 8812 , I knew that I wanted it. As someone who loves objects made out of wood, I found its rosewood body especially attractive. And at less than $8 on eBay, the price was right.
Here are some vital statistics:
Length (capped): 136mm
Length (uncapped): 119mm
Weight: 45 grams
Nib: #5 medium
The pen is a bit hefty and is solidly built. Jinhao is usually pretty good in the QC department which is amazing considering the low price of their pens. The 8812 is also a smooth writer (as most Jinhao pens are). You can post it, but I found it to be too back-heavy when posted and too long (160mm). It comes with an Jinhao converter and it can also take international standard ink cartridges.
This is a great pen for the money that will turn a few heads.
