Finally my birthday present arrived. A Parker Sonnet GT in red lacquer, and it's every bit as beautiful as I hoped for! I went to fill it up with a dropper, turns out the tube was a bit too big for the converter and the drop that I tried to put in stayed at the top for some reason. These things are weird. Anyways, tried to flush it out with water, and the water stayed in and I couldn't get it out! Well, the pen is writing a greenish colour now thanks to the water mixed with the blue, so I guess I'll just have to finish it and get a smaller eye dropper to fill it up properly.
Anyway, love the way it writes and the feel and look. It's awesome
