Is the Baoer 388 a worthy copy of the Parker Sonnet?

Baptiste knew how to make a short job long

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

I suppose it depends on whether you're looking for a Baoer pen or a Parker pen. As a Baoer pen it's OK. It's not a Parker pen though.  -_-

Ah, well. It was a gift and will be appreciated as such. It looks good, feels good, and writes well.

If it writes well, can't ask for much more, it took me years and years to get my original Sonnets to behave, but now that they do they are a pleasure to use.
