It's about $6.00 locally in China but $24.00 on eBay. There's also Makrolon bodies (the three below) for $8.00 that aren't sold on eBay. Comes with an EF nib that one person has described as soft.

It looks quite good but the clip worries me; looks brittle.

And another plastic pen.

Probably the prices of this one will also go down - at the moment they are too expensive for being considered by me.

Does taobao only deliver to Chinese addresses?

'Seems now to have appeared on aBay, Makrolon or not I cannot tell. As an aside, isn't Makrolon a proprietary name used by Lamy?

Makrolon is a trade name registered by Bayer (Germany) and now belongs to Covestro - a spin-off.

 

"polycarbonate Makrolon® is the trade name used for polycarbonate from Covestro"

So it's just a proprietary name for polycarbonate, much like PMMA is known as Perspex, Lucite, Plexiglas etc.


No, I am not going to list my pens here.

The nib is quite springy. But extremely dry. Nib width is on the finer side. Interesting steel nib. I have one in fine. I could flex mine without springing the nib.

Quite a popular pen in China 3yrs ago.
