To let you know how little I thought of this pen, I got it a couple months ago, and it has been sitting disassembled on my bathroom sink since last night, untouched. It is a Parker Parkette Deluxe ringtop. Slim. Heard of them, knew they were the lower end pen. Thought, "meh, price was right." Was going to get around to it eventually.
So last night, I decided was the night. I had to knock out the nib, unfortunately, because the feed was piched up higher than the nib, so I did that. Then from the look of it, I thought it might take something smaller than a size 16 sac, so I did a little research. And that's where the fun begins.
I can find no record of a pen like like this. It is definitely a Parkette Deluxe. Says so on the pen.
However, nothing else matches. I looked all over Google and the boards. Went to Richard Binder's site. Nothing about a Ringtop model. Then David Nishimura's Site. Read the whole research dissertation on the Parkette. I now know more about the Parkette than I ever thought I would. But this type of pen does not exist in his research or his pics. And while there were lever fillers like this one clearly is, none of a similar model were in his pics or his mentionings.
Came next, of course, to FPN. There was actually another member who inquired about this very pen back in 2012, but no one answered (I wonder if it is the same pen? I may reach out). Searching showed these nibs were not gold. But ......
So, I have a WTH Parker pen, here. Any ideas? I think I need a smaller sac than I've got for it, but it cleaned up nicely.
