A quick question:
Does anybody know if authentic Hero 329 with arrow head logo at the nib hood can still be found? A quick search on Google suggests that there are two versions: 329 and 329-2, where the former doesn't have an arrow head logo and the latter does have an arrow head logo. The cap also looks different between the two versions. I know it's a cheap pen, but some (not all) of my Chinese compatriots would stop at nothing to counterfeit even the cheapest products.
There are many shops on Taobao and Tmall who sell the Hero 329-2 with the arrow head at the hood. I wonder if they are authentic. Somehow the official Hero store on Tmall doesn't carry the version with the arrow head, so I wonder if the other vendors are all selling counterfeits.
Now, I know that there at least was an authentic model of Hero with an arrow head logo, and it was not the Hero 100 (the arrow head on that one looks different). I used to have one more than 20 years ago in primary school. It was bought from Yue Hwa Chinese Products Emporium in Hong Kong back in the days. I miss it. And I want to own one again.
