I was looking back through some old posts this morning and came across a photo of this pen, a Chiseled Sterling Silver Parker Sonnet from the mid-1990s that I reviewed nearly four years ago! I no longer have the pen, but I do have a couple of Sonnets (both from the unfortunately discontinued "Great Expectations" series), and everything I've said about them in previous reviews holds true today. I think the reason I like these pens so much is their classic shape: they remind me a bit of the smaller Vacumatics and have a vintage vibe.
In my opinion, the Sonnet is a bit of an unsung hero in the pen world, and doesn't get the attention it deserves. Parker has recently revamped their entire line, giving all of their pens an updated look (as well as better quality control on their nibs). This apparently includes a reissued version of the classic "Cisele" model, which our sponsor Appelboom currently has in stock.
If anyone is looking for the recently retired version of the Sterling Silver Sonnet Cisele, Vanness Pens has one on clearance, and as of the time of publication, it's still available....
