    High-Quality Fake Sonnet

    I recently bought a Sonnet Cascade Gold, date code A.III, which would place it in the first quarter of 2002. But it's a fake. No harm done because the vendor has agreed to refund the price, but I thought it would be worth describing the diagnostic points and showing some photos. I have seen a couple of poor quality fakes but this one is much better quality. The first thing is that the cap does not fit very well. It feels as if it is rough and grating - I have a genuine Cascade Silver, and the cap on this slides smoothly on and closes with a satisfying click. Completely different. The photo
  2. DiLoro Italy double pen cases in full-grain nappa leather discounted to A$17 (approximately, but fluctuates due exchange rates) each, for five out of ten available colours, on Amazon.com.au. These are sold and shipped by Amazon US, and if you have Amazon Prime membership, buying three of these on a single order would put it just past the A$49 threshold amount for free shipping to Australia. (Of course, alternatively you could just buy one or two, and make up the A$49 minimum with other Prime-eligible international product not limited to what is sold by Amazon US.) I bought ten of these pen
  3. Hey guys. Just found your forum today as my wife has found a sudden interest in fountain pens and would like one for Christmas. As such, I was looking for something in the middle of the road price range, not too cheap, but not exorbitant. From what I've read, Lamy seems to both provide a pleasant writing experience and priced right for beginners. I see the Safari is very popular but I thought the aluminum build quality of the Al-star would make for a better present. I've found them listed on Amazon for less than what I can find them for in local retailers, and was wondering if anyone here ha

    Montblanc 144 Fake Or Genuine?

    Hi I have recently bought a MontbBlanc from a ebay seller in Spain. This is my first Montblanc, so I need your helps and I really appreciate that. I have given that this item was bought form Montblanc Iberia SLU Regalos de Empresa, Tel: 934463969 in Spain and 100% authentic. The number of International Guarantee Certificate is 105657 and the number on the clip of this pen is YH1360467. But when I went to The Pen Shop in Meadowhall - a Montblanc Boutique in UK to send it to MontBlanc Service to restore, then they said to me that this pen is not genuine or fake. I am not sure that she was rig

    Two Mont Blanc-Y Questions

    Firstly.....and hoping it's ok to post this( I always seem to be asking that....) I saw this( won't put any detail other than pic).....and having been bitten by the ripoff bug before, I wonder....is it real? The second isn't a question as such....just a drool....... Two pics of the "is it genuine" followed by one of the drool.....well, not a photo of my actual drool - that would not be A Good Thing....a bit of pen porn..... Alex
  6. Hi everyone, new user here and also new in the fountain pen world. I just bought this mb meisterstuck on ebay, I haven't paid for it yet and I am very suspicious about its authenticity. I asked the seller directly and he told me he is the first owner and he bought it new, and he told me is genuine, but I want confirmation from other experienced people like I am sure some of you guys are. Here are the pics he uploaded, please help me: http://s13.postimg.org/dal2m0evr/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/80g3upumv/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/g3ea61f87/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/dksl5c
  7. Hello everyone, Could you tell from these pictures if the pen is genuine or fake? Pictures are from an auction site.

    Cruise Collection Ballpoint

    I have just purchased a MontBlanc Cruise Collection Ballpoint from www.martemodena.it. I have noticed it doesn't have PIX under the clip, does this apply to fountain pens only or does this also apply to MontBlanc ballpoint pens? Thanks Andrew
  9. Hey guys, so I recently bought the pen that I have described in the title from Ebay, it was the ballpoint version. I'm trying to get a refund on it because I believe to have been duped or ripped off. Now I was to believe that the serial number on the clip is supposed to match the one supplied in the certification booklet and the handbook. They do not, however the seller assures me this pen came straight from a registered retailer and has not been tampered with. The clip number in the paperwork is PW2344002. The number on the actual pen clip is XW1058636. Surely this means that the clip has eit
  10. Hi, I realise this forum is for fountain pens. But can't find details on a ballpoint and thought someone here may know about it- or point me to somewhere where I can read more. I'm giving a S.T. Dupont Olympio Ballpoint as a gift, as I can't afford a new one I've opted for a second hand one. I believed that S.T. Dupont wasn't the sort of brand that attracted counterfeiters, however after doing some research I've become concerned. Are fake ballpoints common? Is there anyway to detect one? Should the leaf logo be etched on to the lacquer as in the case of the fountain pen? A few ads
  11. Which one of these sets are real and which are counterfeit (or are they all the same)? What are your experiences with them if you have bought them in the past? Anyone here who can read Chinese? What do the packs say on the front?
