In 1994 my parents gave me a Parker Sonnet Sterling Silver Fougere - its the pen I've had the longest. I damage it's nib may 6-8 years ago and it had sat there unused. I had another Sonnet (black with steel trim) which had the same nib which I hadn't used for 3-4 years. Tonight I decided to see if I could remove the nibs from each and switch them over. The good news is the switch worked and my Fougere is inked with MB Lavender ink.

The nib is a medium, quite wet and writes like a charm.

My only problem is I'm used to using 146 sized MBs so the pen feels small in my hand. Nonetheless I will enjoy writing with it.

Hi !

An old Parker Duofold Senior, green marble. It is inked with Blue/black Parker Quink.
The other pen is a Parker 180, Flighter. It squirts Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue.

As October comes to an end, I will clean them, and put them away. The next two pens
in the rotation will come out for November. Neither is a Parker.

We recently had a large order for the gorgeous Parker Sonnet Stainless Steel Roller Ball. I had not had much to do with these particular pens but after dealing with them for a while I'm a big fan. They have a nice weight and write beautifully.

I would like to be working with my 1942 stripy Duofold, but I have to review a new Parker pen, so I have put all else aside for the next 2 weeks while I work with it and start writing the review.

Parker 51 flighter set. This set just finished its rotation. It was inked with Iroshizuku Yama-Guri ink and they loved each other. I loved them both as well.

Now in rotation is a Parker 51 set in forest green with a dual tone cap. Inked with the new Diamine Meadow ink. I really like this ink color. It goes very well with this medium nib.

A navy blue Parker 51, M nib, inked with Diamine Kensington Blue. This pen write smooth as silk! Pretty good for a 60 year old fountain pen.

Parker 51 Signet, fine point Nib Pelikan 4001 Violet Ink.

This is off topic but Mr. Pen Man I was thinking of buying a bottle of pelikan 4001 violet but I was afraid of feathering. I will be using it on the cheap paper I use for school and a moleskine, so in your personal experience what would you recommend.

This one came in a couple days ago. It's one of the two Brit Burgundys from the UK I'm waiting on. It's a little more red than it shows in this outdoor (cloudy) today Droid pic. It looks like it has a UK Fine which would make it about a U.S. M- which should be about perfect for me. I even picked up my official KD135 section pliers yesterday from NAPA so I guess this will be my first full 51 disassemble. I already fixed a little bend in the clip and cleaned the outside up a bit.
