Is This Even Possible !?

Today I've found this on Amazon:

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GU1VVE/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me=

 

It's a Pilot Heritage 92 for... less than £10 !!!

 

This isn't real, right?

Has to be a scam...

 

In any case I ordered 4 pens I always wanted since Amazon is great with refunds.

 

Any thoughts? should I cancel straight away and not bother?

Lol! After I checked it was really Amazon, not some phishing site, I ordered one. Far too good to be true, so...

 

Swiped from the Fukushima blast zone?

Stolen from Pilot's vaults?

 

let's have some more theories!

Yeah, totally bizarre! The most probable theory I was able to come up with is that B&M sore got liquidated and someone got a hold of container of pens so he's chucking them at Amazon going for numbers rather than price.

Why not? If you encountered a box of parts marked OPA128LM you might just go and throw them at your local pawn shop or scrapyard bulk, while each of those is worth about £90 RRP :)

The USA Amazon price is $109

 

Not from that seller - funny how the seller is based in the US, but doesn't ship there, eh? With international shipping, Amazon will release the funds to the seller before shipping - handy, as there's nothing to ship!

We are like sharks here: a bit of blood smell in the ocean and we all went hunting!

 

:lol:

 

It could be an error in their listing.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
