    As we speed towards Christmas we at Italix have to decide on any additions to the colours offered for the Italix Parson's Essential. Currently we offer marbled finishes in Blue and Amber. We also offer plain piano lacquered Black, all pens have gold trim. Also we would like to use this topic for anyone that wishes to comment on our pens, we will do our best to post answers regularly.

  2. I was excited to find some Montblanc Permanent ink, so I got a bottle of blue and some cartridges of black. The blue is amazing, by the way, I'm using it with a Lamy Al-Star, no issues there, beautiful color, normal flow. But for the (black) cartridge, I'm chose to use them on my Italix Parson's Essential, with a medium nib. I obviously washed the pen before changing the ink. But after I'm not using my pen for one or a few days, the flows stops. I need to really shake the pen, or use filter paper to convince the ink to start flowing again. Sometimes I just rage quit and get the nearest pen to write with, when I'm pressed by time. It's frustrating to spend preparing a couple of minutes every time I need to write something. Is this because the black ink is thicker? Is this issue that I'm having a normal behavior? What can I do to have a quicker flow down the nib? It never happened before with this pen, but I was only using Pelikan Royal Blue with it until now.
  3. No affiliation, etc. but I know there are some fans out there of Italix pens. So this is a heads up on the Massdrop of the Parson's Essential. I have always wanted one. I like the Celtic band. Seems like a simple classy pen. Thought I would try the medium stub. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/italix-parsons-essential-fountain-pen
