Loving a New Sonnet

During a recent sale, I picked up a blue Sonnet with a broad gold nib (Blue CT). I'd had some challenging experiences with a few older Parker pens, and despite the fact they don't seem to get much love I wanted to try a new in the box model just to see what that was like.

 

Turns out that I absolutely love it. I'm writing in my A5 Tomoe River notebook which is my diary for everything, reflections, To Do lists, et al. I'm using Pilot tsuki-yo ink and it's like seeing the ink for the first time because the pen puts down so much of it that I get pink and purple sheen and variations in the blues.

 

The pen glides across the page, like friction isn't even a thing that exists in the universe. It certainly changes how I write because it's so large, but it never fights me on the up or down strokes, it never feels like it's catching on the paper. I don't have many fancy pens, mostly Kaweco Sports, Lamy Safaris, and such. But this is the nicest pen I've ever owned or written with. So much better than the vintage Parkers I've tried, and easier to take care of.

 

I did also order a fine nib because they were on such a great sale, but returned it as I didn't at all enjoy how it wrote. My Kawecos and low end Pilots with F and EF nibs wrote more smoothly than the Sonnet with an F that I got. But, I'm very happy with the broad. It does something that I just can't do with any of my other pens, I can write quickly, easily, and get a beautiful experience of the ink.

YAY!!! I'm so glad you finally got the gold Sonnet writing experience you were looking for!! 

 

And yes, I agree on the 'new' aspect. However much I like to be able to get and use some of the classics that I've been searching out, sometimes it's just such a fantastic feeling to have a brand new, clean, and no-one-has-messed-with-it-yet good quality pen! ☺️
