this might be a dumb question but i am thinking of getting the jinhao x750

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Jinhao-X750-Foun ... 2a3b13841e

Does it come with ink already in the pen or you need to buy it separately? From the video he had to fill it
The dumbest question is the question you didn't ask !
No, it does not come with ink as ink is considered a flight risk ...LoL, you buy bottled inks locally at Staples or pen shops !

The x750 can use ink in two forms; international cartridges and the included converter to use bottled inks.
Fountain pen enthusiasts only use bottled inks. Just buying a converter would cost you around $10 with most other pens as it is not included, the x750 includes a converter which makes it even more incredible for this price point !

The Jinhao 159 is nice too if you like large pens !

Bottled ink is becoming harder and harder to find locally because Joe Public look at us FP users like aliens from another planet when we ask them for a bottle of ink ! ...LoL
Depending on where you are located there are specialty pens stores that sell inks. Ink collecting is another facet for fountain pen users !

Here are some shops that are recommended:

Bottled ink is the most cost efficient and most true experience of using fountain pens, cartridges are expensive and limited to your choices of good ink.

If you want Parker ink, Staples is the best place, it is local and it is the least expensive at $8.96 per 60ml bottle !

Montblanc boutiques. If you don't live near one, they'll gladly ship the refills to you. Go to the Montblanc website to find boutique locations.

You can also find some Montblanc refills and writing instruments at Birks.

You can get Parker Black, Blue Black or Washable Blue ink for fountain pens at any Staples for $8.96/60ml bottle, the cheapest price for ink anywhere ! ;)
Another thing you should invest in is some Rhodia writing pads, they are available at very good prices at any DeSerres stores.
