Beautiful permutation of the Duofold, color based on the 1921 Mandarin. More to come - JG

Wow, that's beautiful, I'm jealous! I really like the ace of spades decoration on the nib too.

That's a gorgeous pen and it took me two years after it first came out (2006-ish, I think) to round one up because it wasn't available in the US.

So why did your rating go down 0,1 for that pen since March? :)

Very welcome! You're a keen observer. Indeed, filling & maintenance went down half a point to bring it more in balance with the score for a Duofold Demi (fact sheet still to publish). Also, the proprietary format of Parker's cartridges is something to take into account. Best - Jos

Thank you. That is a very attractive Duofold. I have a modern one with a smooth F-nib, nothing special about the nib though.

Nice one jgysenbergs

time ago I was on the verge of buying the small version of the citrine but waited too long...

I do own the blue checkered version Centennial though

I like the B nib on it, stiff like most centennials but ever so smooth
