When did Parker make a fountain pen named Jotter ? I've bought and ownwd a lot of Perker pens since the mid '60s and only known the Jotter as a Ball Point pen !! 



The Parker 15 is called Parker Jotter FP.

Nice review and comments. Hard to find these in the USA. I have 2 blue ones. They seem to only be in medium. Ipenstore, just a happy customer, has unique Parker items. Performs very well on work paper with Noodler's Blk. Great low price option. I just wish there were more colors and nib options for USA. Regards, Ron.

I have one of those jotter fps. i am going to etch it with salt water and maybe plate it with copper. Quick Question..

Can you cut off the part of a proprietary cartridge that gets punctured and seal and glue it onto a international standard converter? I'm going to do this with a parker cartridge

Why wouldn't you simply use a Parker converter, to begin with?

Just buy a parker converter. They're cheap and very well made.

 

It's just a shame this pen looks so... badly made. You'd think they could at least polish or chrome plate the nib.

I've got a few Jotter fountain pens that I used in high school 25 years ago and used the heck out of them!  Good workhorses.

 

I carry a Parker Jotter ballpen as an EDC to hand folks instead of my current EDC fountain pen when I get asked, inevitably "got a pen I can borrow".


Kind regards,
