Hi. Recently I got hold of a brand new Parker Sonnet 18k 750 fountain pen. I know nothing about pens but it says 18k 750 on the nib. I can't find the exact model on the Parker website and I'm trying to figure out what is a reasonable selling price? Please help, thank you.

Once you find the model.....

Try past auctions on Ebay of your country.

 

You could look in our sales section.

 

What is the reason you are selling?

It's a fountain pen and has to be held differently than a ball point. Unlike a ball point a fountain pen is held after the big index knuckle.

You need absolutely no pressure in the nib floats in a small puddle of ink.

99.1% of those new to fountain pens press way, way too hard.

 

Scribbling becomes fun....fancy inks, great papers.....paper makes a great difference between some feathery blobby line on your Ink Jet Paper and something clear and crisp on medium good paper.

 

If you notice there are many fountain pen coms....and no ball point coms. We are having fun.

Stick around perhaps you can too.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

I don't like it. It seems to be a pen of three parts: a black barrel, a silver cap and a metal grip. I thought it looked like a Frankenpen. Meh....  :mellow:

I don't like it either. It looks like a dressed up IM.

The new 2016 Sonnet finishes are all metal sections.

Reminds me of an outfit with black slacks and a houndstooth jacket.  Not too shabby, but the three hundred dollar price isn't something I would pay for a Sonnet.  With the way these pens tend to work, I would think $90 would be more reasonable.

 

I would put an "as is" caveat in a sales ad for this pen.
