  1. Hi all, I just used the well-known auction site to purchase a Blue Marble Centennial, which I'm pleased to say is broadly in good condition for the price. The cap and nib are in very good condition, while there is some light scratches on the blind cap, and a bit of corrosion around the section rings (might replace the section) and then most noticeably at the rear gold rings (which almost look silvery now). I've yet to clean or ink it. I wanted to ask two things: Is it usual for a Mk1 Centennial to be missing a date code on the blind cap? This pen doesn't have on
  2. I recently bought a used Parker Centennial Duofold in Blue Marbled pattern. Upon receiving, I noticed that it looks a bit different than my Parker Duofold Centennial Big Red in several ways. As I am no modern Parker expert, and own a few bought from trusted source, this is the first time I bought a Parker from a local auction. The notable differences of the blue marbled Parker vs. my Big Red: 1. The clip and cap rings on Blue Marbled are rather flat, vs. Big Red raised/rounded; 2. Imprint on Blue Marble: position is just below clip and above cap rings on the cap, rather faint. (Date code IF)
  3. Hello, Could anyone tell me the difference between the Parker Duofold Prestige/Classic and International/Centennial lines. From what I can guess, The Prestige is made from brass whereas the classic is made of resin (plastic), and both come in international (short) and Centennial (long) versions. Can somebody help me clarify that?
  4. http://www.platinum-pen.co.jp/fountainpen_century_the_prime.html Wow, Platinum edition and silver edition.... Very hefty price tag. Release date is February 5.
  5. Hello Parker forum. I was recently sold a what was described as a Broad Italic Duofold Centennial nib, but I have some doubts as to that. The packet it came in indicated "BI" so that was that I thought and it certainly wrote a little broader than the M nib my duofold came with, but it just didn't seem right. Finally did what I should have done from the start and took a loupe to the thing and the nib certainly doesn't look italic to me. It looks distinctly oblique. The feed number code is 87. From my scattered researches since then I think I've pinned this down to a "Fine Oblique". Can anyo
  6. Hello there! For connoisseurs only..... Any idea of the fountain pen used by Sir Ian Richardson in House of Cards BBC? I think is a Parker Duofold Godron gold lined..., centennial, international....
  7. In Japanese: http://www.pilot.co.jp/100th/ I guess any possible centennial commemoration pens will pop up here....
  8. This Orange Parker Duofold Centennial Special Edition is what I would call a reasonably priced collectors pen. Somewhere between sane & insane. If you take a close look, it's a lot, but it's not much. Is it plain? -yes. Is it simple? -yes. Are there any other pens like it? -yes. Are there any other pens exactly like it? -no. Would I buy a pen if it was a homage? -no. Would I get a MacArthur Limited Edition for 4 times more? -no. Does it compliment my Japanese Pilot Maki-e theme? -no, yes & maybe. But if I close my eyes & think Parker, I imagine Orange Vulcanite or Orange Perma
  9. Introduction I recently had an opportunity to act as an enabler by helping a colleague and friend of mine acquire a special custom fountain pen. This particular gentlemen has a very fine collection of writing equipments including models from almost all premier brands and certainly a few Parkers. But his heart was set on acquiring a classic all ebonite Duofold in glorious orange hues but with a contemporary filling system. Since such a chimera doesn't exist in the real world, we set about creating a pen that looks and behaves like a modern Duofold Centennial but with an orange ebonite cap and
  10. Hello all, I am asking some advise as I just came in possession of some PARKER Pens after my uncle passed away. He had a specialised shop and the pens I have were meant for selling, they are MINT in BOX and never been inked. I am totally new to this and I am trying to understand if they do have any particular value, as after researching online I found out the might be pretty rare. I might be interested in selling them, but I am not really sure which might be a realistic evaluation. I do have the following: Parker DUOFOLD CENTENNIAL Memorial Fund for disaster relief ITALIAN Version (n. 12
  11. Hi I wish to share with you a prized possession of mine, one of the only 19 Limited Edition Parker Duofold Black Centennial Fountain Pens, launched on the occasion of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 held in New Delhi (India)! This special pen received a fair share of media attention at the time launch, as the first of this limited edition was presented to His Royal Highness Prince Charles in an event organized in Delhi before the XIX Commonwealth Games opening ceremony. As per an article I read, of the 19 pens, apart from Prince Charles, 1 each was gifted to the Queen of England, Shri D K J
  12. Dear all, I am about to request a nib-exchange for my Parker Centennial and was wondering if someone among the parker usergroup could share their experience or writing sample comparing the the Broad Italic, Broad Oblique, Extra extra broad . I tend to prefer the broadest oblique Italic or stub nibs, but not at the cost of broad... given that Parker do not have an OBB or O3B on offer , I'll have to settle for one of the IB,OB or 3B which puts me in a quandry. would be fantastic if one of you experienced folks could share a writing sample comparing the any/all of the

    Parker Duofold Centennial

    Will a modern Parker Duofold Centennial nib unit & converter fit into any other manufacturer's barrel & cap? I have an extra, and would like to set it up to use regularly, but it's just impossible to buy spare barrels and caps.
  14. of all my recent ebay finds, this is the one that i've been using the most, very much a keeper and a user: the bexley-made woodgrain duofold centennial. i love the warmth of the ebonite, and the faceting is exquisite: http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5335/9310981903_89e416eeb4_z.jpg of all the modern parker nibs ever made, i consider the "banner" nib the most beautiful of them all, and it was used on this bexley: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7309/9310982625_e0de33a4a5_z.jpg i've seen this pen offered on the pentooling.com site for $450, and i was lucky to get it for considerably lower
  15. My summer job is almost over and the pay check is soon to be cashed. I have decided to treat myself to a new pen having not acquired a new one for a while. I have narrowed down the options to two, the Parker Duofold Centennial in marble acrylic or the Visconti Homo Sapiens Oversize Steel Age. I already own a MB 146, an M800 and a Waterman Carene. I can get the two pens for similar prices and would be using them daily, taking notes etc at university. I'm drawn to the Visconti because of the superior nib and ink capacity but the Parker is more of a classic and, I think, the better looking.
  16. Hello! I was wondering if anyone of you has a Parker Duofold (or maybe another pen) with an Oblique Fine nib? I was looking everywhere for some writing/drawing OF samples ....in vain I would like to know if an oblique nib would help me create some more line variation while drawing or would it skip all the time while not holding to a certain angle? I always tend to turn the nib towards me when I write and draw... actually when I draw I twist the pen all the time in all directions and use all the sides of the nib. I did not realise that until I watched a video of my hands while I draw.

    Sheaffer Centennial Limited Edition

    Hey there! I'm new to this site, but I wanted some people's opinion on the Sheaffer Centennial Limited Edition SS Fountain Pen and the Heritage Limited Edition Pen. I've never bought a fountain pen in my life, and I do plan to when I save up enough, but for now I'm just observing and looking around. I tried looking for comments on these and found very limited resources. I just want to understand whether or not these prices seem too high, too low, the opinion of aesthetics, the value of it, or just any commentary you have on it in general. I personally find the Centennial one more aesthetical
  18. I have a Orange Parker Centennial Pen that has a cracked case. Does anyone have the part available to replace the case or would know of a place that may have it. The nib is in good working order and does not need
