Hello,

 

I found this on the website www.parkergift.jp:

 

The Sonnet gets a new redesign (Take a look on the clip) and the Parker Logo is redesigned too.

Hopefully, the cap seals properly. The nib (ink) dried out with the old/current cap design.

I only have two pens - an Aurora Optima and others.

Will those who have tried Sonnet before try this new one?

No. I would not. The nib looks to be the same as on the refresh version.

I have the old and would add the new version to my collection.

I like the direction Parker is going, the Sonnet was due for a new design anyways. The gold nib comes with the metal section while the stainless steel nib comes with the plastic section. Nonetheless it's a design win for me and can't wait to get my hands on one.

It doesn't make me think I would like to go out and buy one. I think I would prefer to just a gold nib for the polished stainless steel one I have already.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
