Bought my first one, a Black lacquer w/18k M nib in 1995 and thought I'd get a Sterling Silver Cisele w/18k F nib in 1998. Both have been good writing pens with even ink flow and using the included converter hold a sufficient amount of ink. As with most modern Parker nibs they are somewhat stiff albeit VERY smooth putting a nice even full amount of ink on the paper. Mine are the ones with the slim gold cap band and a black cap jewel which i like over the newest versions with the wide cap band and no cap jewel. Any of you folks own one and what have your experiences been? Twisted Evil

Hi Michael,

Yes, I have a much loved Sonnet. Like yours it's a black lacquer, but a later version with the wider band. I love mine and use it daily. It's well travelled too and as such has significant sentimental value. I dropped it a few years back with the cap posted.  Murphy's law held true and it landed on its nib, bending it badly. I ordered and fitted a replacement and it has given me fine service again. Like my seiko timepiece with an automatic  mechanical movement, it's a treasured companion that's never far from my side.

That's one of the most informative sites pen wise especially for Parkers. Well, looks like you and I are the only Sonnet users here on the BOB. Twisted Evil

You are not alone!

I bought a gold (color) Sonnet in the late 90s. It is great to write with.
