  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

    Fake Sonnets On The Internet

    I have purchased numerous sonnets via the internet over recent years. I have so far encountered only honest vendors, and have been pleased with what they sold me. My luck has however run out. Sonnet fanciers will have seen recent very cheap sonnets advertised from China, and some of these are straight copies of the French originals: the 'silver circle' and 'gold circle' copy the tartan ST and GT from the 2003 sonnets, and the 'silver diamond' and 'gold diamond' copy the premium silver and gold lustre from 2008. I bought a Chinese gold diamond a while back for £8.99 just to have a look, and I g

    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!

    Changing Nib On Parker Rialto

    I've been experimenting with extra fine nibs, so I can be less choosy about the paper I write on but still be able to write on both sides. I haven't been crazy about the nibs, but I'm wondering if that's related to the pens I'm using them on. The pens I keep going back to are the Parker Rialtos. I have not found one with an extra fine nib so am wondering if it's possible to put an extra fine nib on one of the Rialtos I have. Can that be done? Is it difficult? Where would I get an extra fine nib for a Rialto? Thanks! Tery

    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. £148 (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!

    Two Different Parker 45 Yellow Colors

    I'm a Parker 45 collector (among other pens). My impression is that the "Happy Colors" Yellow is quite hard to find. I have two FPs of one type of yellow, and one of another type of yellow. See the photos here from different distances and perspectives: Based mostly on the photo of the barrel ends, I believe that the two yellows (what I'd call a "goldenrod" yellow) that are alike are the authentic Parkers, and the one yellow that differs from the other two (what I'd call a "bright" yellow) probably is an Ariel Kullock creation. The bright yellow barrel end has a different shape fro
  10. I have a bottle of Parker Quink Black. I read somewhere on forum there are two kinds of this ink: permanent or washable. I can’t find anything on either the bottle or box that identifies this ink as permanent or washable. Does anyone know how I can tell what kind I have ?
  11. Hello, I've always been careful with my 61, putting some tame blue or black into it while my other pens enjoy my 'fancier' inks. It's kind of a shame since my 61's nib is really smooth and wet, and I'd love to put a high-sheen Noodler's ink or the rest of my Emerald of Chivor in there, but I was always leery of the capillary filler's sensitivity, especially with pigment or gold particulates. Has anyone had the bravery to put a nastier ink in their capillary 61's, and what has been the success rate of such an endeavor? Regards!
  12. First Impressions (6/10) This is the first step of a quest to exchange my Chinese clones of some very famous fountain pens with the originals. I own a Baoer 388 and a Kaigelu 356, both of them clearly modelled on the Parker Sonnet. So, when I found this particular model pearl and metal I was very tempted; so following the advice of Oscar Wilde I fell for it. The fact that the nib is a 18K gold was also a very strong factor to incline me for this particular model. Going back to the item itself, it came in a standard Parker box, with a large blue Quink cartridge , some generic instructions and c

    Parker 51 vintage aerometrics

    Parker 51 pens from a bygone era
  14. Hi folks, I got this Parker 51 from Ebay for a total of $70 including shipping. I'm trying to figure out of the nib is a medium or a broad. The pen is Made in England. If it's a Medium, it's quite a bit broader than my Made in England Parker 45 medium nib. What do you folks think? I am writing on Mnemosyne paper. Thanks! The nib says "14K" "585" "Parker" "Made in England" and I believe that's about it. I'm interested because I never thought I would love a nib that's this broad. It works well for speech outlines because it's easily legible.

    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
  16. I love my Parker vacumatic. Its nib is the best I’ve ever written with. It seems to be an extra fine/fine and though it doesnt have line variation like a stub or italic/ the line width isn't totally uniform and has some nice character. There is a wonderful almost pencil-like feedback. What modern pens would you recommend that have a similar feel? I’m guessing gold nibs? I’m tired of the likes of Kaweco nibs that feel like a nail and not as tactile.

    Help me identify

    After years of buying, followed by years of dormant activity, I went through my inventory of 20 nice name brand pens, and found one Parker I am unable to identify.I seem able to find the arrow clip online, but no Parkers with the single band at the bottom of the cap. Also, the band has the letter "U" stamped on the backside. Anyone have thoughts on what model this is? Thanks.

    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!
  22. 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.
  23. This is certainly the most shocking / awe inspiring news from the Chinese Fountain Pen market that came surfaced recently .... well ... take a look yourself Parker China had the pages taken down already but the leak is out .... first photo show text say " new generation Parker 51 " , 2nd photo show comparing to original P51 , the last photo shown steel cap with steel nibs and gold plated ( look like VPD ) cap with 18K nib ; not much info, but look like a Chinese market only model and is rumored to be made not by Parker themselves but a long time local partner ( guess we know who ).
