About This Model
The Sonnet was Parker's successor to the 75, and it was both a necessary and tough act to follow. In addition, by the early 1990s all of the then-current Parker models were at least a decade old, and the marketplace was moving on. The Sonnet was designed to cover a range of bases -- a "classic" pen, a gift pen, special nibs, a beautiful pen. As a result, the Sonnet was designed in numerous finishes, metallic and lacque. As late as 2008, Sonnets were still being produced, in new and repeating designs. Very good pens, excellent writers.
