Some people are "naked" if they go out without clothing; I am also "naked" if I go out without a Fountain pen .
Ken takes commissions to produce custom pens. Very nice!
Carries a number of lines fountain pens notably including the Chinese Hero brand.
It appears that the Chinese government seized the factory where Parker used to make pens (possibly including the famous Parker 51 model), and the results have since passed to a company called Hero. They sell a number of pens that strongly resemble classic Parker "hooded nib" pens, for prices way lower than one pays for most of the major brand names of fountain pens. There are some excellent pens at excellent prices.
An American vendor that carries all sorts of Japanese products, including fountain pens.
We are seeing increasing availability of Chinese pens of steadily increasing quality. There has been a problem of Chinese makers of "knock-offs" of major European vendors; the Chinese vendors are selling increasingly nice pens legitimately under their own brand names.
The Hero pen company reputedly took over what had formerly been a Parker pen factory in China; they are now selling remarkably near clones of famous Parker models like the 21, 45, 51 that are pretty decent (and write nicely) at low, low prices.
