    Looks exactly like Wing Sung 659, or actually Pilot 78g. Wonder if it uses the same sized nibs. Also interesting if Hero, Wing Sung, Jinhao and other chinese pen companies steal their own ideas or are they just one big manufacturer under many brands?

      I suspect the “Chinese Three” are separate entities that are competing with each other, but my suspicions shouldn’t be taken for fact. Certainly, they all take liberties with intellectual property. :/

      The 1202’s dimensions are nearly the same as the 78g, and the nibs are shaped similarly too, judging from pictures. Unfortunately, I don’t have a 78g to compare it with.

      Thanks for stopping by.
