Duke pens have a good reputation, and from the only one I have, I'd say it's very good quality.

 

As to where to buy them? Hmm. For someone in China I'd expect Taobao to be better than e-bay. You are unlikely to find one in the classifieds section of FPN as they are not very common outside China.

 

Regards,

 

Richard.

It's one of the better Chinese brands with a decent (good) quality. A bit more expensive than other Chinese pens, but that's ok, because the quality is a bit better, too.

But they are not very widespread, maybe because it's not that easy to get one (besides Ebay or - like richardandtracy suggested - some Chinese auction sites).

 

If you want to have a good laugh, take a look at this thread

Greetings,

Having only tried the Duke 209 Sonnet lookalike ( reviewed here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php?/topic/222537-sonnet-comparisons-with-lookalikes/ ), I can happily say that the D209, cheap though it is, is only a whisker off the quality of the bottom of the range Parker Sonnet - something that commands a price more than 10x that of the Duke at the moment.

Recently I had the great good fortune to visit Beijing and Shanghai. In Shanghai there is a street that specializes in pen and stationery stores (yes, a kind of heaven for people like us). In one of the larger stores I looked first at Hero pens but then my eye fell upon a Duke pen. It has a tortoise colored barrel and a black cap, with gold trim (plated, I suppose, rather than gold filled), and a 14, gold nib that writes with enough softness to give subtle but real line variation. I believe it was called "Classic." Lovely pen.

Here in America, hisnibs.com has a selection of Duke pens, though not the one I have.

Thank you, Vivisay !

 

You can count on me for an email. I've seen a scant few Dukes advertised, and those Appeared to be over-priced. But this thread has prompted my interest. Please keep us informed of the models available, here in the west.

 

*That's a nice picture, in your last post !)

 

Take Care,

J.R.

Duke a newly extablished fountain pen manufacturer in China. It has 2 factories, one in Hainan and the other one in Shanghai. The factory has only got less than 20 years history. Most of their products have a heavy nice box, very good for a gift. Some of their model are quite famous now, including Ruby, Sapphire and 209-1 calligraphy set.
