  1. Hello guys, I want a spare nib for my Parker Frontier stainless steel CT fountain pen. Can anyone tell me where can I get one? The nib has the slit cut unevenly so one of the tines is wider than the other and it releases a lot of ink. Feels like I am using a paintbrush.
  2. Hi All, I am new to this forum, so I might need your guidance. I am from India (kolkata). I came to know about a shop in central kolkata, the Pen Hospital. I visited the shop yesterday and the shopkeeper handed me a Parker Frontier Steel body FP, made in USA. He said that its a vintage and Parker stoppped manufacturing these in US in 1980's. The pen costed me 23 USD (1400 INR). I am really baffled now, whether my purchase was profitable or not? Regards Rajeev

    Custom Ground Left Oblique Italic Nib

    Enter my 2 year old parker frontier (indian made not uk) which i accidentally dropped (who does it deliberately??? ) and the tines got bent......relatively cheap pen but i still tried my best to restore the nijb to its former glory but failed so i first ground it to a stub and then further modifying it to an oblique italic.......i used only a nail buffer and NO MICRO MESH.....but still turned out pretty neat and smooth.... Maybe one day i can match richard binder or something :-P jus kidding, hes on god mode...... I have attached a wrting sample and also a picture of the nib Feel free to crticise so i can do a better job italicising next time..... Sayanora, nikhil seenivas

    Parker Frontier Vs. Pilot Metropolitan

    I was browsing a pen selection and came at a cross road for a cheap pen stand off between the parker frontier and the pilot metropolitan, they're a similar price range and I've owned the metro, what do you guys think?
  5. Hello there people! First of all, this is not a formal review, but i try and provide the needed information with suitable pictures! Its a light read sprinkled with just the right amount of information! So, I bring to you the review of my Parker Frontier fountain pen! I know that it's too old a model to interest many of you but hey! Old is gold right?? Every pen becomes one with its user! So I've heard...well, that's too much intimacy now! But, i decided to write a review of mine for two reasons: 1) I like this pen so much that while i was writing with it, i thought i should give it the testimony it deserves on my part! and 2) It has got a damaged nib and still it writes perfectly without a scratch! I know its not a very special pen. It is available readily and easily, and is quite inexpensive too, but, beauty (and performance!) in simplicity is THE thing about this pen! Many of you who own this pen and like it, must know what i am talking about! As mentioned in the title, my pen has a gold plated fine-turned-medium nib with other features, also mentioned. But of course the pen comes in a variety of nib sizes and body finishes such as Matt-black, brushed chrome with silver accents e.t.c. LOOKS AND FEEL: This baby is a solid metal pen! With the sleek brushed chrome design and the golden colored arrow-head metal clip and other golden accents..it has got pretty much everything going on for it in the matters of looks and feel! The chrome body has a nice rounded-off feel with just the right amount of texture of brushed chrome that feels silky but not slippery! Its juicy! The Head to toe view! http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2874/9340080017_7593947d90_z.jpg C360_2013-07-22-15-15-31-690 by deathadder_44, on Flickr The toe to head view! http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7444/9340085169_d78952d395_z.jpg C360_2013-07-22-15-15-20-124 by deathadder_44, on Flickr UPON REMOVING THE CAP, a friendly looking gold-plated nib smiles at you! It lies along with the feed in a plastic grip section. The feed is a screw-fitted one, so be careful not to pull it out just like that! You might break it and thus, ending your beautiful relationship with the pen! You can unscrew it like a normal screw and it will come out easily. The nib is sort of "attached" to the feed by two "hooks" on each side into which the nib clicks in place, which also makes aligning the nib and feed very easy because once you properly "hook" the nib in the feed, it will stay there in a way it is meant to stay! Now, is it sweet or is it sweet?! The pen; Uncapped! http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5449/9342869402_1e819eab0d_z.jpg C360_2013-07-22-15-10-08-955 by deathadder_44, on Flickr The nib and feed! Sorry i did not separate the nib and the feed as the pen was already inked up and i did not want things to get messy by separating the nib and letting the ink flow around the cloth rag! http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5349/9340127445_ef359bcca6_z.jpg C360_2013-07-22-15-13-53-301 by deathadder_44, on Flickr THE NIB that i had in this pen was a "fine" one, but now it writes medium. Here's how it happened. One fine day while writing with it, i kept it aside for a moment to get to a book, but, the luck had its way and the pen rolled off my desk hitting the edge of the drawer on its way down. Praise be to the heavens that the pen did not hit the ground with the nib facing down! (it hit sideways). But, when i picked it up, i saw that the damage had been done by the drawer. Which pinched my heart. The writing end of the nib had bent a little with the tines being displaced away from each other. I applied some pressure and carefully straightened the bent part and pushed the tines toward each other to be aligned and fortunately they snapped in place with a satisfying click! But, when i wrote with it..the nib had changed! It was more wetter and drew a broader line than earlier by which i was actually happy! However, it did loose a bit of its smoothness but it does not bother at all because the difference is very minute. THE NIB THAT WAS ONCE A "F" http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3712/9340125361_10047ee0c1_z.jpg C360_2013-07-22-15-11-22-764 by deathadder_44, on Flickr As you can see, the tines are not "normal" but it still writes perfectly! THE INK FILLING MECHANISM is a standard Parker converter which is included with the pen and holds about 0.5 to 1ml of ink. http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2878/9342916954_330f0e333c_z.jpg C360_2013-07-22-15-14-25-416 by deathadder_44, on Flickr The pen without the body barrel http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7426/9342920606_df4a586b32_z.jpg C360_2013-07-22-15-14-52-020 by deathadder_44, on Flickr THE WRITING SAMPLE (Warning! The handwriting and the pen are not a good couple! But, i am working toward betterment of our relationship! ) I am posting this picture under natural window-light conditions to give a natural view. The paper is 70 GSM off-white. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7299/9342864414_295fe48eff_z.jpg C360_2013-07-22-15-03-44-182 by deathadder_44, on Flickr This one is just for fun and a close-up view!

Thanks for reading! Have a good day with your beloved pens! Enjoy!
  6. The Parker Frontier is one of my personal favourites and I think this model with it's matt black finish, gold trim and gold nib is the best looking Frontier I've seen. This is my Pen of the Week and it's $26.00 plus $5.00 delivery anywhere in Australia. And I'm pretty sure noone else is selling them in Australia.
