Hi ya Mags,

 

I haven't received mine yet. I have such poor handwriting that my few experiences with stubs have been underwhelming. So I opted for the fine point and am interested to see how it writes. I have a few Pelikan's both modern and vintage so if you say the Essential hold's it's own, that's high praise indeed.

Anyone here willing to exchange green cap and barrel with my amber one I dislike? Mine is immaculate as new since almost never used except coupla times, I have to ask the same. I am located in Turkey, please PM me if you intend to exchange for details. Here  are the pics.

One boring blue, one boring black 1mm thickness at most.... 

Then there are Fountain Pens with gorgeous permanent inks..

I've had my parsons essential for nearly a year now. I use it every day at least twice a day. It looks great.
I have been using the same ink in it (diamine syrah) and have nearly used the whole bottle up.
All I can say is it is a quality bit of kit and you should get one..... Right now!
Ps I am 16 years old so you know I do a lot of writing.

This is great! I was looking for a new pen and did not think to check in with FPN for reviews first. Silly me! But, as luck would have it, I ended up ordering a parson's essential with a medium italic nib. After reading all your reviews it appears that I won't be disappointed. I will have to be patient though. Canada is a bit farther to ship to. I'll check back when I get it.

Love mine! (same as yours)
