This second posting in the "series" on the pens of Eversharp-Parker during the late fifties (i.e. when Eversharp was purchased by Parker) has to do with this pen, for which I believe Jim M. said it was called 10,000 words (a rather inispiring name).

I bought the FP because the barrel clearly reminded me of Parker. The top of the barrel is just a tad larger than the 45 and has a hole (which I do not know what role plays since this is a cartridge pen. The top of the cap has a V-notch shape which is common with another Eversharp pen (the "Viking" - perhaps there is a connection between this name and the shape of the cap) of this period that I will discuss in a future posting. The clips bear the "E" symbol and the name Eversharp is inscribed with the same font as in this previously discussed pen. The difference here is that the familiar Parker symbol appears in the other side of the cap. Does anyone know when this symbol began to be used?

The nib now begins to look like a Parker 45, especially the 45 degree asymmetric v-notch end of the section which is similar to that of 45. The nib is a nail but writes like a charm.

If you have more information for this pen please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Cool~!

I don't know anything of the historical significance of pens like this, but it's a good feeling to look at something which obviously isn't everyday, common stuff laugh.gif

Eversharp seems to be been owned by several companies in the past ohmy.gif
