  1. The other brand sections have this kind of thread, and I couldn't believe we don't have one for Parker. So here we go. What Parkers have you added to your collection lately? We have 100 years worth of pens with the Parker name, and some of us are addicted to gathering them up. I have a number of items on order, both vintage and modern, and I will mention those as they arrive over the next few weeks. But to get us started, here's the ebay photo of a P45 I just scored: Burgundy Parker 45, 14k Medium - described as NOS. In fact, that's how I found it. I was searching for gold P45 nibs
  2. I recently ordered a Jinhao 100 Centennial from China, which should be arriving imminently. I realised - too late! - that the EF nib I have specified is not an original Jinhao nib. So, assuming I am not happy with it: - anyone know what make/style of nib I am likely to get? - can it easily be replaced with a “better” EF nib? - if, so what would you recommend? I recall reading that there was a switch from #5 to #6 nibs recently for this design, but I don’t normally mess with my pens these days, so any detailed advice would be welcome. A fine line is always m
  3. I had a problem getting the refill out of a new style Duofold ballpoint today. The cap pulled off of the back, but I couldn't untwist the back end to get to the refill. I looked for resources on how to get it out. I saw many old topics where people asked the same question, but no answers. Well, I figured it out, and thought I'd share in case someone searches for it in the future. Here's what the problem looks like when the gold cap comes off but the mechanism and refill don't come with it. I fit a 5mm deep-well socket into the rear end of the pen, and turned it counter clockwise to
  4. 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)

    As I continue to refine my collection it's time to say goodbye to this superb Parker Duofold Jr Streamline in Red Permanite. It is an English Duofold, made in Newhaven (see the N on the nib), with a hint of wear to the cap bands and a touch on the ball-end of the clip. Aside from that it is in fine cosmetic condition in terms of finial and body colour, with no damage whatsoever. The button filling mechanism functions correctly and the 14ct nib writes with a fine line, which is crisp and a little stubby. £120(pounds sterling) plus the cost of postage. I'm open to offers, please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have and please contact me to discuss shipping as rates will differ and there will be some destination exclusions unfortunately. Many thanks for you interest!

  6. Hello all, I recently acquired a wonderful Parker Duofold International with a personalized cap as shown below. This was disclosed in the listing, so I new this was something I would have to address. In reading previous posts, mostly dealing with lost medallions, I understand that the top portion of the cap is not easily removable. Does anyone have more recent experience with replacing such a part, or with obtaining a medallion to adhere over it? There are a few listings on ebay, but all are military or college branded. I'm hoping to find some alternatives, or a source to replace the p

    Could you help identify this pen?

    Dear readers, I have some trouble identifying this pen, mainly because of the cap. Could you possibly help out? Many thanks in advance for your effort. Best wishes!

    Who made this replica Duofold?

    I'm hoping someone can identify the maker of this replica Duofold that I recently bought used from FPH. FPH said the nib was from a 1940s Vacumatic. The clip looks to be from a vintage Parker too. The button-filler may be modern. The top and bottom black pieces may or may not be vintage as well. I know that Chris Thompson's replicas had the imprint on the barrel with the added word "Replica" but this pen has no imprint on the barrel. I have attached a few pictures of different parts of the pen. Can anyone also tell me which vintage Duofold this is a replica of? Thanks for any help.

    Dropped-right-on-the-Nib

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for coming. At 82 dollars, this was the most expensive pen I've ever bought in my whole life. I have never had any pen write as well as this one either. Today was a super special day for me. it was my first day of school at this new place. Well i clipped it onto the little loop on the back of my tie. Of course it somehow became unscrewed, and fell... I'm convinced that if I try to fix it on my own, I WILL get it to write again. I might even get it back to normal, but I really doubt it. If I go that route, it probably won't write anywhere near as wel

    Duofold Roller To Fountain Pen

    Does anyone know if you can convert a Parker Duofold rollerball into a fountainpen, by replacing it's front section with one of a fountainpen? I found a rollerball mosaic red for sale, but since I don't use rollerballs I wanted to know if it is posible to convert it into a fountainpen if I have a modern duofold fountain pen and exchange the sections between them. Thanks in advance!
  12. Something, perhaps glue (no idea how), has interfered with the threads and made it impossible to use this Parker Duofold fountain pen cap and I understand that it cannot be repaired. Can you help me describe it accurately so that I can search for a replacement? Also, if you know where I might find a replacement that would be helpful. You may contact me directly <rad2556@gmail.com>. Thank you.
  13. Hello all! I recently won a Parker Duofold Senior (the Big Red) online and I just received it in the mail. The pen is in wonderful condition, but the imprint is so strange. There is no Parker imprint, but rather just COMPLIMENTS OF FALLS GARAGE INC. and an offset D to the right of it. I have no idea what to make of it, and I can find nothing online. The rest of the pen looks great, so Im stumped. Is it a gift? Loaner pen? Maybe a bootleg Duofold? Ive attached pictures, so let me know if you know anything about this pen! Maybe we can figure something out.

    Gold Duofold Pocket Pen?

    Hello fine folk of the forum! I found this at the flea market, it apears to be a vest pocket duofold, it is only slightly longer than my kaweco sport but I haven´t been able to find pictures of this pattern anywhere. I have seen some jack-knife models with these gold waves but this one has breather holes, an inner cap and the christmas tree feed. It came with a "Warranted 14k USA" nib which seems to be too small for the pen thouh it fits the feed nicely. The green section and brown tail cap would sugest they aren´t from the original pen buit they fit perfectly. Have you seen these before? Any
  15. Parker Duofold Prestige Centennial - Ruthenium plated Medium nib, C/C Recently, I hope to get a decent flagship pen and I keep choosing from a few big-name models. Definitely a hard fight, and tie-break all the time. M1000/5, 149, big red, Urushi, GvFB, Aurora, Homo S, sterling stuff, etc. Few months passed and I can’t make up my mind. I treat heavy pens to be more serious, so I decided to give the resin stuff on the next try, and I finally choose the Prestige Duofold. Well, the last battle falls on the black chevron and the ruthenium... Until I read from the web that ruthenium is a very
  16. 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?

    Need Help With A Parker Duofold

    I just bought my first vintage fountain pen, a Parker Duofold. Until now, I've only written with new pens. But after picking up this Duofold, I couldn't resist. I have a question I'd like to ask your help with: What is its approximate year of manufacture?

    Click Aristocrat Review

    I recently ordered a Click "Aristocrat" fountain pen from a seller on Ebay. I have purchased and used many different Indian fountain pens in the past few years, both from overseas Ebay sellers and from Fountain Pen Revolution, and am usually impressed by the value they deliver at their price point. With a Leuchtturm pocket notebook for comparison. The Click Aristocrat (for some reason, the packaging I received calls it a "Tulip", but since I'm familiar with that model from FPR's house version (the "Indus" piston-filler, I don't think this is really the Click Tulip) is a plastic cartridge-c

    What Kind Of Duofold Is This?

    Can anyone help me correctly identify this pen which was given to me by a friend? I have offered to give him some money for a charity donation in return. My usual pens are Japanese modern FP's so I am a bit out of my depth, although this one does write rather nicely. The set is in a wooden box with Parker Duofold stamped on the top and is a white-marble resin patterned fountain pen and matching biro. The FP is a cartridge filler (unfortunately and 13.6 cm long including cap, M nib is labelled PARKER 18 750, the black cap has PARKER MADE IN UK in small writing. My guess from conversation was
  20. Recently one of my colleagues in workplace found this pen. It seems to me that this one is a Parker Duofold Senior from 1926. The nib is in excellent condition and writes smoothly. However, the sac inside has dried and crumbled. I was wondering if it would be possible to find a new sac in India. If such is not possible I would like to know whether there's any website where I can order for parts. The pen body seems to be made of ebonite whereas the blind cap at the back (which covers the button) seems to be plastic. Note: I could send the pen to Pen Hospital in Kolkata, but I had a prior exper

    Vintage Duofold Identification

    I have been trying to place this black Permanite Duofold, going over again the Duofold book. It has the same Lucky Curve imprint as the 1926 first year Jade Permanite pen. And the same Lucky Curve nib imprint. But it is longer then either the Jade pen or the previous Duofold I have checked, 14.1cm. There are similarities to the model DQ shown in the Duofold book, launched in 1924; the pattern seems the same, as does the imprint, but the nib does not have the DQ imprint and this pen is Permanite. I know this is not an exact science but help would be very welcome.
  22. I have just acquired a rather strange Parker Duofold. It bears no resemblance to anything on the Parker Collector.com. Perhaps someone here has an idea? The pen in green marbled material is relatively small - 115mm long , capped. A button filler, it is fitted with a Televisor type compound pressure bar. The section is some sort of plastics, translucent at the barrel end like some Waterman's pens that I have had. The nib, not identified as gold (though I am pretty sure it is) is stamped Parker Pen Made in USA; there is a very small 4 stamped also and on the bottom LH corner, R. Here are
  23. 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
  24. Hi, I found a new pretty pen to admire Parker Duofold Centennial MK1 (PDFCMK1) circa late 1980s owners: Which of the modern Parker converter definitely work for your old pen? My research shows various versions of Parker or Aurora depending on the nipple collar: Metal - current versionPlasticAurora metalAurora metal with plasticor does the modern cartridges work as well? I'm interested in knowing what actually fits to feed the pen Thank you
