I was surfing around, looking for a nice Parker fountain pen for a reasonable price (I really love Sonnets and Duofolds too, but they are too expensive for my budget unfortunately). I ended up finding I found two IM's which I really like and I'm debating a bit over whether choosing this one in case I got a new Parker fountain pen (I have 45 and Jotter pencils and Jotter pens so far). (Also looked at Vector and Premier, but I like IM the best so far.) I'm curious for your opinions about it, like how practical and comfortable it is, if it's good for longer writing and maybe some not-so-professional calligraphic writing (for example for Christmas greetings) and so on. I attach two pictures of the ones I like the most so far The blue one is a Parker IM metal fountain pen and the green one says Parker IM Premium Vacumatic Emerald Pearl CT.
First off I apologize for my egregious juvenile handwriting and the fact that a small bit of the scan is cut off. However I Didn't see any other reviews of this ink yet so I figured why not give my opinion. Also thank you to Mezzie for the PIF I received some months ago for 3 months of ink drop, the two inks I compare General of the armies to were received in those ink drops. I got this bottle of General of the Armies back in march. I filled it once before the fill I used to review the ink. On the first fill the ink was substantially darker and seemingly a bit more blue, the dyes may have settled in between fills causing this but I'm not sure. Overall though, I liked both colors and I think this is a great addition to Noodler's stable of bulletproof inks. Hopefully you can read my bad cursive and chicken scratch
