Parker 45

Recommended Posts

few days ago i got 3 nice pens a Sheaffer Imperial and 2 beautifully colored Parker 45 pens, both of them came with a Fine Nib one of them -the gold plated one- was very clean so i didnt do anything to it and the other one needed some service so i did it and im currently using it, such a nice pen very smooth, fantastic grip and decent ink flow even when im using cheap paper it writes perfectly without any problems.
here is some pictures for both of them :http://imageshack.com/a/img534/3292/qyd7.jpghttp://imageshack.com/a/img822/6840/dsi0.jpghttp://imageshack.com/a/img850/2144/5qol.jpg

If the nibs in the pens Came with those pens then your gold colored nib Isn't likely plated, More Likely 14k gold.

 

The didn't put the plated nibs in until much later. The nib will be stamped if Gold but you'll need to remove it from the collar to see it.

 

Nice looking 45's.

I just got 2 Parker 45s because everyone said they were wonderful writers, and they are! :) You have some very good specimens there.

I was going to say the same thing. I have several pens of other brands with gold plated nibs, and the color of the gold in the 14k in my P45 Flighter is "different" than those. I suspected as much when I got it, and confirmed when I took it apart. Enjoy!!

cant wait to empty the first 45 so i can use the gold nibed 45, do you think it will write even better that the Steel nibed 45 ?

The Parker 45 is designed for reliability and easy maintenance by the user. Whatever else I am using, a Parker 45 travels

in my pocket. So it has been for forty years.

 

Store with the cap removed.

I think Sasha means mainly for uninked long term storage not when inked for daily use. Storing it uncapped stops the hood dimples from getting worse.

Probably not much difference if any in smoothness, the gold nib may be a bit springier though.

Never used a steel nibbed 45, but 45's are wonderful writers. I would have been happy had it been steel, but as a 14k? I was ecstatic.

i agree they are really great writers, i think both steel and 14k nibs are great didnt try the 14k yet but surely it would be great.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
