This is the second review of the two pens I want to introduce to those who doesnt know these pens.
This is the Parker 105.This pen was also a luxury pen at the 1980's.
Its a beautiful pen that has a very unique texture in its body.
This texture is designed to look like tree bark and it works wonderfully.The gold filled body was the more expensive model sold,there was a cheapper model without the bark texture,it was made of stainless steal.Funny but the more expensive is the plain looking stainless steal model because it was sold in a much fewer numbers.

Anyway this pen is a gorgeous example its 13.1 cm long and is a C/C filler.
It has a big chancky 14K M nib,the nib looks very different then any other nib I saw Parker ever made,its a very smooth and very wet nib.I dont think Parker had a big success with this pen and I think its a shame its one of the nicer pens Parker ever made.

It is very light weghit and very nicly balance.
The cap is held into place with 3 little squers that hold it into place very much like the ones on the Waterman Edson,thats a nice touch to this overall excellent pen.
Again its not a cheap pen but its very different from what Parker usualy made and an excellent writer.

One has a gold nib and the other a steel nib: I feel the gold one smoother (a bit less rigid) than the steel nib, but only a minor difference.

I purchased both them together in a lot of many pens made in UK. They are from ebay
