An elegant, slim, lightweight ballpoint pen from Jinhao in China. This is a very robust pen despite it's elegant looks - The barrel is stainless steel in a soft, grey satin finish with a brass insert and gold pocket clip. It unscrews in the middle to replace the refill and has a concealed inner brass thread usually featured only on very expensive pens.
This is one of the new breed of ballpoint pens coming from China as Chinese manufacturers are shifting their focus from fountain pens which dominate the Asian market and look to new markets in the Western world.
The name "Li Sao" comes from a Chinese political allegory in which the poet laments that his own righteousness, purity, and honor are unappreciated in a corrupt world. The poet alludes to being slandered by enemies and being rejected by the king he served.
We can all relate to that.
It's a pen for poets, philosophers and writers but with it's robust construction it's also a good knockabout all purpose pen that's a real contendor for the Parker Jotter.
