    Parker 45 nib question

    Hi All, I have a question about a 45 that I acquired a while back in used condition. It's a very nice fighter with a brushed metal and gold trim finish. I've never inked it up until today. Mind you, it looks mint, but man is it ever scratchy! I was not pleased!! I investigated the problem with a loupe, but there appears to be no damage Except for this ; the left nib tine has a slightly rough spot right behind the tipping, which can only be seen under magnification. Has anyone of you ever come across something like this before? I suspect that it can be smooth

  3. I found this Parker Flighter, listed as a Jotter. But there is no nock, so presumably it is a twist mechanism, and the bottom of the barrel is knurled. Can anyone provide the actual model?
  4. I would like an opinion about the prices for a couple used Parker 45 Flighter Deluxe I found someone selling. Would you buy? The first Parker 45 Flighter Deluxe is a 1960's vintage (black endcap) it looks very good, some signs of use but no deep scratches, pictures are not clear enough to notice small details. He wants $12 for this one. This Parker 45 Flighter Deluxe is a 1970's vintage (gold endcap) clear pictures of it, it looks like it is in excellent condition, no scratches and very minimal wear and tear, barely used or well taken care of, it includes the original Parker pen case.

    Jinhao 911 - Review

    Hello all. Having recently fell for hooded pens, I decided to make a few purchases, including the Hero 616. However, I was very reluctant in buying anything as I was very cautious of the possibility of inconsistent manufacturing and the element of luck involved in these purchases. While I was searching, I found this Jinhao 911 on Aliexpress on sale. The seller had no feedback or orders placed on this particular listing, but they otherwise had good feedback in general. For £1.40, I thought I'd take the chance. The main reason I chose this over the very similar yet cheaper Hero 338 is beca
  6. Hello, I recently got a Parker 45 Flighter with a 14K gold nib. I really love it, it has been a great writer so far. I'm really interested in trying some iron gall inks, because I like the permanence aspect to them, as well as the fact that they darken the longer they are on the page. I just really like the idea of them and would like to try some out. I was thinking of trying KWZ Turquoise and Mandarin in particular, because I love the colours and they're supposedly really wet inks, which I think would go well with the pretty dry, fine nib I have on the 45. I want to use them in the 45 becau
  7. Greetings Fellow FPNers, Below are some of my thoughts on the Thyer edition of the Jinhao 911. This review turned out sounding a little more negative than I had intended, but don’t let it scare you away from this pen. Many of the good points about the Jinhao 911 have already been discussed in KingRoach’s excellent and much fuller review. My observations agree 100% with his, including the issues of potential scratching and the nib lightly touching the inside of the cap when capped. According to the Thebai Company that sells this pen, it has several distinct differences from the regular Ji

    45 Flighter Loose Body

    Hello, I have an original-style flighter 45 (dated to 1962 thanks to a cap monogram) with the black plastic body that a SS sleeve slips over. Got it cheap on Ebay because there's an issue with this body; the SS sleeve rotates freely from the plastic body, which means that to tighten or unscrew the body from the section, I have to grip the exposed black tip. I thought it would be an easy fix, but my original guess of being able to unscrew the black cap from the back of the body is turning out to be fruitless. Does anybody have any suggestions for reattaching the steel to the plastic? Thank

    Red Parker 45 Flighter

    Can anyone please tell me anything about this Red Parker 45 Flighter - it's not something I have come across before with matching red section and end tip on a brushed steel Flighter body with gold trim. Pen was made in the US but I purchased it from Japan. Fine 14K Gold nib fitted when I got it. Was this a standard colour? Any idea of dates ... anything would be useful! Thank you. http://pencollect.co.uk/personal/45red.jpg
  11. I just won a Pilot pen off ebay, without really knowing much about it. I am wondering if anyone here can tell me the model. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Japanese-Pilot-Stainless-Steel-Flighter-Fountain-Pen-/331262745684?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=EtOjJU%252F1OKVItAW8i%252FTa6FG%252BuA4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc I don't normally bid on things I don't know much about, but I've been looking for a flighter style pen with a fine, semi-hooded nib, and this seemed like it would satisfy those requirements. Knowing exactly which model I have
  12. Once I'd gotten over the original shock and disappointment of Flounder's April foolery, I started to think about how I could turn the H616 Flighter trick into a treat. I realized that if I sawed off the barrel of a 616 at about an inch, I could file it down a bit and tap a smaller (fake? or just regular size?) Hero cap onto the stub. I was searching all over the workshop for an appropriate barrel finial, when I realized the 616's ink sac guard (which I had previously removed) would fit almost perfectly. The sac itself does not stick out at all. http://i1102.photobucket.com/albums/g456/rezwrr
  13. http://pencollect.co.uk/personal/03.jpg I bought a "New Old Stock" Parker 45 Flighter on Ebay a little while back and was amused to find that it had not been stuck together properly when it was put together so all I needed to do was unscrew the end cap and the clip screw and it fell apart into it's component parts (except for the ink collector that is fixed into the shell section). I thought it would be a good opportunity to have a good look into just what makes up the pen.
