Following my recent post regarding where to look for the marking on Sheaffer fountain pens that will tell you the type of nib fitted to the pen - fine. italic, medium, broad etc., I now have reason to ask the correspoing question for Parker fountain pens
I start with a Parker Sonnet which for me seems to not writing very well, and I wonder if it was fitted with a fine rather than medium nib. Where on the pen should I look for a mark which would tell me this information ?
The only marks I can see on actual nib are the Parker symbol and the word 'PARKER' and the pattern of curved lines that I suspect is a characteristic of the Sonnet range. It looks as if there might be more symbols on the nib which are hidden by the part of the pen that holds the nib (I'm sure it has a name ?) but I'm not sure.
I also have some Parker 45s with which I have no problem, but I'd like to be able to check their nib types as well.
