Recently, either here or on Pentrace, there was some discussion about pens offered on Ebay at prices so low, they were probably knock-offs. So, I ordered one, a Parker "Sonnet," for a total, with shipping, of about $15.75. A couple of days ago, it arrived, from China, in a box marked both "Parker" and with LOTS of Chinese characters. It says Parker, France, Sonnet, and writes quite well. But, it is much lighter than a Parker, and the material appears to be something unlike the plastic Parker uses. It has a converter, and the nib is quite smooth. I'd say, for the price, it's a good example of what the Chinese pen industry is getting better at: a smooth writer at a comfortable price. After I've used a month or two, I'll update this report.
