2018 new model Wing Sung/HERO #601 Retro Designed Aerometric / Vacumatic Fountain Pen Black body w/brushed stainless cap & a Fine enclosed tubular nib.

This is a stunning pen. Shanghai Hero Pen Factory has gone to the past to remake a special pen. If you peruse the No. 6 photo, you will see side-by-side the WS #601 & an original WWII era Parker 51 Vacumatic. (NOT part of the auction! Comparison example only!)

This goes all the way to the inside, the #601 is a true Vacumatic diaphragm pump. The parts are modernised & far more accessible. This pen can be stripped & cleaned far easier than a vintage Parker. But it has all the appeal of the original, with none of the quirks of a 70 yr old pen!

Hero has always been an impressive pen company. I hope this trend expands to more models. Parts kits? Nib options? One of the great fountain pen designs is available again.

Posted 152mm, light, uncapped, 129mm & capped 139mm, 13mm dia. The Fine width nib is aerometric in design; a tubular stainless nib w/feed as well a finned collar to keep the system wet. Instant response writing that comes with aerometric pens. Black body has clear ink level panels the rear screws off to expose the vacumatic internal pump. The entire pen can be stripped for cleaning. Comes in a box, paper instructions in Chinese & images.
