Hero 359 Fountain Pen

The Hero 359 is a shameless clone of the Lamy Safari. It is nice enough, but it is not as good as the Safari itself:

It can be had for $15.00 on eBay.[1] The Lamy can be had for about $5.00 more. I don't know why anyone would want to buy the copy, unless she/he wants to see how good a cheap Chinese copy of a German classic can be.

I can attest to the fact that it writes well, but my writing or thinking is not improved by it either. Nor can it replace my new favorite pen.
