STORAGE TIN
Made of tinplate metal, this simple, functional tin with hinged lid measures approx. 13 x 17 x 1.8cm (approx. 5.1" x 6.6" x 0.7").

FOUNTAIN PEN
The Jinhao X750 pen measures approx. 14cm (5.5 inches) with cap closed, 16cm with cap posted on end, or 12.5cm uncapped. It has a smooth-writing, medium (0.5mm) stainless steel, iraurita-tipped nib and comes fitted with a removable ink converter to use with bottled inks. However, it also takes standard international ink cartridges.

This elegant fountain pen has a brushed/matt stainless steel body, with shiny detailing (tips, clip etc). The pen has a satisfying weight to hold so you can really feel the difference when you are writing - weight approx. 35g (1.23oz)
