Fuliwen are one of the new breed of innovative,  emerging pen manufacturers from China. Fuliwen are developing their own uniquely designed pens instead of mimicking European pen designs like many Chinese manufacturers and the Fuliwen 831 typifies their approach to design.

It looks nothing at all like most fountain pens made by the more well known Chinese Pen manufacturers and it has a couple of well thought out features and a few that are just... different.

It looks different with it's segmented barrel, short cap and short, wide pocket clip The red gemstone doesn't look gaudy like a lot of Chinese pens with gemstones -  it actually looks like it belongs there.

The cap and barrel are brass with a glossy black lacquer finish and an acrylic centre piece that matches the finial on the cap. The nib section has a wide round key that engages with a nylon insert in the cap in a smooth action that ends with a satisfying click and provides a secure seal.

The chrome plated hang grip is thicker than usual at 11mm providing a firm, definite grip and the pen has a nice solid feeling in your hand. The chrome plated barrel finial echoes the shape of the handgrip and the cap slides on the filial to post securely.

The barrel doesn't screw on at the nib end like most fountain pens. The barrel  screws on at the midway point leaving the converter half concealed inside the barrel. You can still fill the pen normally and it does feel a bit more secure with the converter protected by the barrel.

BUT... the traditional 38mm long European style ink cartridges will be very difficult to remove. The longer 55mm Chinese style ink cartridges will be fine though. There's plenty of them sticking out to grab hold of.

The Fuliwen 831 is an interesting pen in many ways, representing perhaps the beginning a renaissance of Chinese pen design. 

The polished stainless steel nib is very smooth and perfectly functional with a medium tip that writes like an European medium than a Chinese medium. It takes a standard #5 nib and can easily be swapped over.
