Yes, but it's not cheap.

I have one, and there should be an old topic here on FPN, unfortunately I never inked it (maybe it's the time to do it), so as I cannot comment. Anyway from a dry run I think to remember that the nib was not very smooth. I should have paid something like 5E. in a flea market here in Napoli where there is a large Chinese community.

Here there is my old topic (note that in the mean time I changed my nickname):

thanks for the replies,
those China retractable truly look hideous.

I saw the Lamy Dialog 3 and was wondering if there is something
equally as nice....

just investigated this subject.

for the collectors:

the same ebay seller has these relisted.


1st taobao link is still current too.

for ppl looking for a cheaper pilot vanishing point:

there are brand new pilots on ebay for the same price as the chinese knockoff so fuggedaboutit!
