Parker Victory Mk Iv

Recommended Posts

Today I got in the mail a Q2 1952 Parker Victory Mk IV. I was looking for a pen made in England and found this pen with Barry Rose at Writetime.co.uk a seller in the UK. I contacted him just before he took a three week trip to New York and he brought the pen with him and shipped it from NY.

 

This will be my 3rd Parker fp. I have a 45 and 61 and I think I like this one the best of the three. The nib is very smooth with a little bit of softness as I'm told the Newhaven Parkers can have. I have it filled with Montblanc made for BMW blue ink.

 

Here are the specs since they can be hard to find:

Section 8.8-10.3, 12mm, barrel 119mm, capped 130mm, posted 150mm

Readjusting my eyes—on my screen it looks yellow. Interesting that the three pens are grey. I'll bet they look nice together.

Happiness is a real Montblanc...

Ah, yes. Now I can see the dove grey. Thanks for the photo. These pens were made to last. They look very happy to be together. Enjoy them all!

So far I like writing with the Victory the best of the three. It was funny that the 61 looked to be a wider pen than the 45, but when measured it is about the same. The tapered ends on the 45 are deceptive.

 

I will keep my eye open for more Victory models. Maybe a nice MK I, or some other colors of MK IV's. I might try a MK V since they seem to be the least expensive but worry it's going to be much thinner pen, but maybe not. It's hard to find good measurements of vintage pens.

The MK-V Victory is the same pen as the Junior aero Duofold in all respects except that its barrel is inscribed 'VICTORY'.

I suspected that, It looks identical. Not that I know the specs on the Junior Duofold... any idea on min and max section size and barrel diameter?

It is more or less the size of the 45 / 61.

 

 

Is it also the same as the slimfold or is that even smaller?

No. It is a size bigger (and longer) than the Slimfold (size 5 nib) but longer than the Demi (size 15 nib). Though the Victory has #10 nib.

Thanks again Mitto!
