The Pilot Parallel is a fun calligraphy pen, but I'm not an expert in using it, and don't really use it that much these days. So I decided to give it away! I've got two of them actually, the 1.5mm and the 3.8mm version. Both are part of this giveaway. :)

 

To enter, you need to:

  • Have at least 20 posts on FPN.
  • Write a hand-written note (maybe 4-5 sentences, but of course you can write more) about why you would like to have the Pilot Parallel and what would you do with it.
  • Add a few words about yourself (nothing uncomfortable, though).
  • Post the hand-written note to this thread.
  • Indicate which one you would like: 1.5mm (orange), or 3.8mm (green), or both.

Rules:

  • Winners will be selected at the beginning of february.
  • I will cover shipping unless it's prohibitively expensive.

 

Have fun!

Szia Orsi! It's indeed unexpected to find someone of my homeland on FPN, I have only known a very few fountain pen people locally. I'm happy to see you here! :)

Not an entrant (Parallels are cheap enough that if I decide I want one I'll just go buy one in one of the local art stores).

But thank you for doing this.

I already have both of these pens.

 

I regularly use the 1.5mm Parallel in my journal. My normal handwriting is really cramped and narrow, and using the 1.5mm stub will enforce a wider, more open hand. At least, such is my hope. My writing goes back to being narrow and cramped whenever I pick up (say) one of my Hero 616 XF pens.

I had hoped something similar from the 1.5mm Parallel, but it wrote much too wet for me to even consider using it for regular writing. The only "calligraphy" pen that I successfully used for everyday writing was the 0.6mm Rotring Art Pen, and even that was a bit too broad for me.

 

Otherwise I, too, have "cramped and narrow" handwriting, but that's what feels comfortable to me, and I like writing that way. So I'm a fan of F and XF nibs these days. :)
