I purchased on ebay as a new pen this parker 45 for 20€.. (maybe too expensive but in europe from what i've
seen a 45 can be expensive!) and it seems to has been used well.
- I surely need to clean it, so what do you think it's the best way to do it ?
- I heard about an "easy" unscrewing of the nib, and talking about it can you assure me that it is a 14k gold or not ?
I will have to open the pen, but as there are silver looking parts on the nib the kind of it appears pretty sure to myself..
I want to do all of this correctly to have a nice "restored" FP, even if the seller said that it was working (I have not
tested it yet) nobody knows.
(i don't know if running water is enough, if not i think that herbin cleaning flush would be good, i live next to paris so it wouldn't be hard to find)
+ The auction was a little strange, because he wrote on Ebay that the nib was "de oro" (gold) and the pen "azul"
(navy but he's green, the picture was correct so i guess it's a fail, it doesn't upset me as normally it works, it's ebay after all..).
I buyed this after advices that were given to me here, so i'm still happy to have this pen even "that" used,
I trully think that this pen can give a cool writing experience (that it will in my student life),
i'm waiting for your advices !
