Yes, because if I wanted a Parker 51 I should have bought one that I actually like - Cedar Blue, gold cap with chevron band, extra fine nib. Those kinds of pen never come this way though. Anyway, the one in the picture will be gone by the end of next week. It's paying for a Bexley, which was also a poor buy (I really should not buy any pens again, ever. I suck at this).
So, you bought a 51 and didn't like it. Sh*t happens.
I bought my 51 about a year ago - Cordovan Brown, as good as new - and simply hated the nib. Now it's my best writer - at an additional cost, of course. Retipping is quite expensive, but worth every penny in this particular case.
