Excellent review. These will be good for some hard to clean Noodlers inks that I enjoy but don't want to put in my expensive Sailor pen!

I did the sand test as u did like alot of people did I have both real and fake and the fakes are greatly made and very surprising u can notes get a great pen for 7 bucks instead of paying 200 that's a deal there exactly the same besides the markings and nib. I put a salor nib on the fake covered up the markings and have professional fountain pen retailers who have been in business 30 yrs try it and they thought it was the real one that's how good the fakes are these days

Open a file to store up all of your reviews (video clip) on the copied/ imitated/ pirated (by any country/factory) versions of the world's brand. The comparisons should be super funny. Any copied LAMY yet?

Let's wait till they start offering different nibs - so far they moved on to the nib fits and shapes. Next step is the tips and grinds.

I have a red lingo. The non solid colors are all acrylic, not plastic, can be made eyedroppered and are bizarrely nice writers. I put a plumix stub into mine and it's just a fun, cheap, lovely pen. China's quality is getting pretty astounding.

The Sailor Pro Gear Saporo Slim is costing about $110-$135 US vs. the $13 for the Delike. Sailor Pro Color ranges between $65-68 US. Thank goodness there are decent pens available for those of us who do not have larger bank accounts. (LOL). I own the LingMo pen. Smooth writer, and nice looking pen. Paid about $12.99. After three months my LingMo is holding up well, with no cracking or other issues.

I would really like to know more about these Chinese companies. Quite a few now have Pilot nib and feed. I wonder I they are using the same tooling. Why are three different Chinese companies using same nib and feed knock off.

Delike/Lingmo = D.L.L.M... sounds like the most frequently used Cantonese four+foul-lettered word/foul language.... (It is a copied product, Sailor in Japan may burst out these words to Delike/Lingmo).
