    That would seem the most likely situation. Someone translated it to "precious resin" decades ago and it just stuck. Though, to be fair, "Quality resin" doesn't have the same price-commanding ring to it that "precious resin" does, even if it is eye-rolling to say.

    I think you can get a comparable product for less, but you are buying a branded product. Bit like an iPhone, there are better phones for less, but if you want an iPhone you have to pay for one.
    This is all subjective obviously, buy what makes you happy.
    Absolutely. For example I find almost all of the low end Chinese pens obscenely overpriced even when they sell for less than $5.00.

    I have three MB and handfull of Chinese pens. All my pens I choose for using them as writers.
    Yes My MB 146 is not the favourite amoung my collection. I am hoping for a nib Swap one day and get to my favourite level.
