  1. Dear all, I've found some time to wonder about flair in writing, usually called flex, which I concur with others here that is to be distinguished from the gargantuan difference in stroke width some people are after, and which I follow Bo Bo Olson in calling superflex. I got a 1929-1930 Lady Duofold serviced in mid-June and at approximately the same time I found a cheap pre-2016 Parker IM which I got. Both pens have seen regular use since then and now I am confident that they have adjusted to me, or I to them more likely, or probably both with more of the latter. Both pens now are wetter than
  2. 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-pro

    Parker Im Vs Parker Frontier

    Hi all..I'd like to get someone a FP as a gift but I can't decide between Parker IM & Frontier. Firstly, I choose Parker specifically as it's rather widely available at my place compared to other brands, plus I quite like the simple yet not too plasticky look of their pens. My budget is ~$30. From my search, I've narrowed down to 2 options: IM & Frontier. Between the two, I much prefer the design & look of the IM but many reviews suggested the Frontier as a good, reliable starter pen for someone new to FP. Or maybe IM just lacks reviews as I couldn't find as many as Frontier's. S

    M200 Italic Nib

    Just for the sake of "Pelikan education": I have this IM --that's how I ordered it-- nib that is only marked as "I". Is that the standard? I wonder why it doesn't show an "M" BTW: It's a wonderful writer! Here is the nib: http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i82/anangeli/PENS/PELIKANS/Pelikan%20Italic%20nib_zpsbmkrpvqc.jpg
  5. Hi all. Thought I'd post my fledgling Parker collection - it's mostly vintage(ish) with a few new ones that I've found at a good price. I'm looking to complete the set of UK Duofolds in blue - I can't get enough of them. I've also included a scan of the paper so you can see why I love Quink blue black, red and green so much. Anyway, sorry not sorry for the self indulgent post! http://i.imgur.com/e5EYPX4.jpg

    Parker Im Cap Repair

    I have a Parker IM. I dropped it a while ago, and the cap now will not stay on. I believe that the sleeve inside the cap that produces the distinct click sound has broken. How would I fix this?

    Parker Im Vs Im Premium

    Hi, fountain pen newbie here! Please could someone tell me the difference (except for finish) between the Parker IM and IM Premium pens? The two I am looking at in particular are: http://www.parkerpen.com/en-US/im-premium-matt-black-fountain-pen---medium-stainless-steel-nib and http://www.parkerpen.com/en-US/shop-online/im-black-fountain-pen---medium-stainless-steel-nib These are both the same price on Amazon so I want to know what makes the Premium premium! Many thanks in advance, Tom
