Here is a little review dedicated to a french made Parker VS
Here are are some photographs of the pen with one of its bigger brother the French made Vacumatic Oversize Maxima three bands. Both pens have made in France engraved on their barrels. The French made Vacumatic Oversize Maxima three bands is exactly of the same size than an American made Vacumatic Oversize Maxima but it has a nib where it is written 18 carats france and it bears no stripes unlike the American Vacumatic model. The French made VS has also a nib where it is written 18 carats france but it is smaller in size and in diameter than it is bigger brother. Vintage french made parkers are a scarcity but quality wise they are some of the very best parkers you will ever buy.
The main advantage of buying a vintage French made Parker is that you get a flexible nib out of the box
regards to all
