     Sep.10th is  Teachers' day  in  China , I am interested in knowing  whether other countries have this festival . Respect is our tradition in chinese history .So every year ,many students  will give a present  to their teachers  on that day .

      I have given a present to my teacher for many years . This year i want to give a  pen to him . But i don't know which brand he like . Actually , he is a pen lover ,he like collecting many pens .

     

     I want to buy a pen with  high quality and  low price ,about 15-50 ,i saw this on ebay .

 

http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1586.l2649

 

     Compare with other stores, i think this price is cheaper and with good quality  .  Do you think this pen is suitable for my teacher  or do you have good idea to me ?

I would buy something in a store near you that you can actually put in your hand and look at. Buying on-line means you may not get what you see. If the teacher is important to you, you should be sure you are getting something good. I have never had a Duke pen, so maybe others can give their opinion of them.

I think you maybe right as the repetitive use of exclamation marks and question marks seems very similar to this post

Fountain pen is a very personal good and exit in a certain niche, you may love fountain pens but you can not grantee that your teacher would like them. And, however, since I am a Chinese also, I may choose a more classical design, and definitely you should buy one in a store where you could try it personally, its weight and how it writes. Why not try hero and winsung, they are all good staffs and cheaper in China, it makes no sense for you to buy something which you are available on ebay.

i see he uses a translator for his posts. i get the same style of writing from some sellers in china -i use a lot of punctuation marks (interrogation, exclamation) and such myself. nevertheless, might not be a coincidence that he always talks about the Duke brand.

Maybe you are right ,i can buy it in a store ,but  i only buy one ,the retail price is much higer than  buying-online ,i think buying -online  is much cheaper than pen store . In China ,more and more would like to shop online .

In India, we celebrate teacher's day on September 5 every year. For US $ 50-55 the only good pen come to my mind is TWSBI 580 or a TWSBI mini.

This brand is a chinese brand, from taiwan. They have a different approach and looks very different from duke, hero and wingsung which you may be more familiar with. I find my twsbi better quality than the few hero pens that I have. Unfortunately, I don't have any duke pens to make a comparison with. However, you may wish to consider the fact that it is not as heavy as china made pens. That will depend if your teacher likes heavy or lighter pens.

      oh ,maybe i am not paying attention to this condition ,the good pen make in China may at least ﹩50 ,pens  weight about 40 to 70, ,and my teacher usually use more heavier pen .  I feel that you like using Chinese Pen ,Rencently i am concerned  about the twsbi pen ,on the whole ,i feel very nice ,its quality make satisfied with me .   Twsbi Vac700
