My P 51Experience


Recommended Posts

It was in 1991 that i found a parker 51 aeromatic filler pen wid a book seller in a remote town of southern district lakki marwat of the kpk province of pakistan.the book seller said it belonged to his father..i gave a good cleaning to the pen...however ,i came to know that the ink sac of the pen was punctured because nobody bothered to clean the sac before putting it into a drawer.the town was near to Bannu city.i heared someone was there who could repair the pen.well, i got to that so-called repairman but what he did was breaking the metal barrel/sac guard with black plastic end.

Later though, i was able to find another filler,alongwith sac,for my pen but it was not like the earlier one..the inscripyion on this filler read "press ribbed bar 4 times " while the same on the original read "...6 times".the instruction for use of ink also differed.also the new filler was of rouded end n lacked the black plastic end.

The cap was like those of earlier vacumatic versions n so was the clip.it is 14 k gold filled.the lines pattern on the cap is 5 lines convrerging into one at the top.there are two rounded holes on the nib...one small and tte other relativly big alongwith a squre cut at the top.it is also inscribed 14 k gold and made in usa.

the date code is something like this or better say i could read it like this without the magnifying glass " T MAM 1"..the cap jule jewl of the cap is also missing.

the pen is excellent writer...and a beauty to look at.

I wonder if such cap , clip were used on the aeromatic 51?reviews on the pen woud b much appreciated.forgot to mention the pen clour is forest green.

Here are some pictures of the pen

i wonder if such cap, klip .

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
