**Update as of September 2016 - we're currently only accepting special orders on certain Visconti and Namiki pens. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.**
We got excited when we saw these brand new finishes for the Parker Sonnet fountain pen coming out this fall. We haven't decided yet to carry the line, but wanted to get your feedback first before making a decision. We started carrying the Parker IM and Parker Urban in their new finishes last year, and the Sonnet would be a big step up in our Parker offering.
So as you look over these colors and prices, please let us know what you think! We'd love to know if you'd like to see us carry these, as well as any past experience you've had with a Parker Sonnet fountain pen. All of these new finishes are cartridge/converter pens with gold nibs.
Without further ado, here is a quick preview of the 6 new colors coming out for the Parker Sonnet this fall, as part of the Special Edition Parker Sonnet Great Expectations line....
Subtle Pearl & Grey
An understated color palette of greys and pearl whites for a chic, feminine finish. It features a pearl lacquer barrel, grey pearlescent lacquer cap, pearl anodized aluminum grip section, rose gold trim, and an 18kt solid gold nib with a rose gold finish. Available in fine and medium, at an MSRP of $320 (our price would be $256).
Subtle Big Red
Secret Shell Black
Secret Shell Blue
Contort Purple Cisele
Contort Black Cisele
So tell us what you think! If you KNOW you want one of these now, you can email email@example.com and we'll go ahead and pre-order you one, regardless of our decision to regularly stock the line. And if you're not ready yet, would any of these pens be on your must-buy list this fall?
**Update as of September 3** We've decided not to stock these as a regular item and they are not available via special order. Sorry!
