Greetings to all of you. This is my first pen review and it is of the pen Parker Urban. I love this pen as for 50 dollars, I think it is a real STEAL.
Appearance and design-9/10
This pen looks classy with black and gold trim. The peculiar shape of the pen has given it a plus point. I was planning to buy the premium one with all black trim and Tron lines all over. But ended up buying this one due to my love for classic pens with black and gold trim. One mark has been cut due to the nib trim. The whole pen has been furnished with gold except the nib. Otherwise a real looker.
Construction and Quality-10/10
I believe this pen is made out of brass. Quality is awesome and I have never gotten any issues with it.
Size and Weight-10/10
This pen is of the perfect size for me and fits very comfortably with a good amount of weight.
Nib Design and Performance-10/10
The nib is a smallish nib but is paired perfectly with the pen's shape and tapered section. The performance is excellent and the nib is a champ. Ink flow is just perfect and writes like a true medium. It wrote perfectly out of the box unlike the Parker Vectors which need prayers for the nib to be smooth.
I removed the ink from the red Pilot Varsity that I have and filled it in the Parker cartridge instead.
This pen is for anyone who wants a classy pen with a smooth nib. For about 50 dollars, you get a pen with a gift box and a cartridge. There is no converter though but it is better than the Lamy Al-Star which came with neither converter nor cartridge. I am very glad with my purchase.
Thanks for reading my first review. Be sure to comment in the section and any questions are welcomed.
