  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

    Does a nib need to be straight?

    This is a medium Sonnet I just received, from a reputable shop, which was sold as "new old stock." The nib looks bent to me, but it writes pretty nicely. Perhaps a little scratchy in one direction, but wildly better than the custom ground nib I unexpectedly got from another shop. So this has me wondering, should the nib on this pen be straight? Or are there benefits to nibs shaped like this? Or is it a flaw that needs to be returned and corrected? (None of the photos on the site showed it from the side, so it wasn't clear that it would look like this when I ordered.)
  4. I recently bought my first Parker Sonnet, a used 1993 with a nib described as "springy and writes smoothly" and I was surprised to find that while it is indeed springy it's also very scratchy. I was surprised to find that my LAMY safaris and Kaweco sports are so much smoother and much more pleasant to write with. Is it me? Or the pen? It was sold as a medium nib, and it's marked "M" but I wonder if it isn't actually some kind of italic? Or if perhaps it's been ground down to this? Or is this normal for a Sonnet? My eyesight is quite bad which makes it hard to really dea
  5. 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.

    Parker 45 nib question

    Hi All, I have a question about a 45 that I acquired a while back in used condition. It's a very nice fighter with a brushed metal and gold trim finish. I've never inked it up until today. Mind you, it looks mint, but man is it ever scratchy! I was not pleased!! I investigated the problem with a loupe, but there appears to be no damage Except for this ; the left nib tine has a slightly rough spot right behind the tipping, which can only be seen under magnification. Has anyone of you ever come across something like this before? I suspect that it can be smooth
  7. Hi all, after I posted only yesterday about how I use my Parker Jotter pencil as an ‘out of office’/‘site visit’ tool because it is robust, it has today developed a problem. It is ‘jammed’ The lead that is currently in its mouth/tip/jaws has worn down. No surprises there. The surprise/problem is that, while there are several new/spare leads inside the pencil’s body, no more lead is coming out of the pencil. I have pressed the button on top of the pencil a huge number of times, holding its mouth/tip/jaws downwards, but no new lead is feeding through its actuator mechanism The actuator mec

    Parker Vector nib & feed

    Does anyone know the size of the nib & feed in mm? I was wondering about using the nib in a Wality.
  9. Recently I was going through the youtube there I saw a fountain pen never heard off....the name is Parker Folio Fountain Pen. Any update regarding this pen?
  10. https://www.sintons.co.uk/sintons_commercial/the-pen-shop-bought-from-administration/ It is now down to 5 stores from 10. IIRC, they had 20 stores 3/4 years ago. OTOH, their shop in Trafford Centre (one of the largest malls in the UK) had only one MB LE ink in stock and 3/4 from the standard range. The website has had a revamp.

    Help needed identifying Parker pen

    I am just getting into fountain pen writing and have dug this Parker out of a drawer. I can’t identify it online. Potentially an arrow? Can anyone help?
  12. I have several Parker pens that have names engraved in them, some of them have the names in the same typeface, in the same size, and all of these ones are coloured in with gold. My assumption at this point is that the names were all hot stamped in, and they were hot stamped over gold foil. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe it was a gold paint, I donno, but I imagine this was a Parker Dealer thing which would explain the identical typeface used. Is there any insight into how this was done? Methods and materials used? I don't feel any need at all to remove these en

    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!

  14. 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
  15. Hello, Recently my father gave me his old parker fountain pen that he no longer used, i've been trying to identify the model but so far have found only this similar one sold in an auction, "Parker 111L". On the middle it says "Brazillian Industries" and "Parker" with the logo . As far as i'm aware Parker had a factory here in Brazil from 1958 to 1990. Apologies for the poor image quality. Cheers, Mark

    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

    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

    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
  23. 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 ?
  24. 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!
