I thought this might be the best forum to look for info. concerning a  writing implement, namely an hexagonal ballpoint which I think was rolled gold.

I bought it from this site many years ago as it appealed to me due to its shape which of course reminded me of a pencil. I had it for a couple of years and used it regularly for crosswords which I did to while away the time whilst travelling. I had to travel a lot in those days both on business and leisure and finally left it on a plane.  As soon as I realised what I had done ( the next day when I went to use it ), I rang the airport who said the plane had been cleaned the night before and nothing was handed in.


I think it was a Parker but have no recollection of the clip design ,whether it was twist cap or depress, nor in fact any detail other than its hexagonal barrel.


Does anyone have any idea what model this might have been, bearing in mind that it was an old pen when I bought it.

When you say "hexagonal", the first pen that comes to my mind is the Rotring 600. But as far as I know they did not come in rolled gold.

Also, Caran D'ache.  Many of those pens are hexagonal, rolled gold, and resemble pencils.
