I’ve never been as pleased with vintage pens as I have with these 3 21’s I have inked. While they don’t feel a sturdy as the 51, they are amazing writers at every turn.

 

What can I say, I’m a fan??

I remember when a friend gifted me her 21. After cleaning it up and adding ink I became curious why there is not more noise about these great Parker models.

Today and recently:

 

- Parker Rialto Dark Green Matte, GT, Fine nib with Parker Quink (used the same model but in Black Lacquer for previous 15 (?) years) – for day-to-day use, etc;

- Parker Duofold Centennial Black Lacquer GT, Fine nib – for signing documents and occasionally making notes at some meetings;

- Parker Classic Flighter BP (with black genuine Parker refill) in my pocket or bag when travelling to countryside.

 

Want to start using 51 one day, but I have got only one NOS 51 so far, so still hesitating to have it inked… My feelings are almost the same when you are about to open another bottle from your vintage Single Malt collection… :)

I recently purchased a gorgeous restored 1946 Blue Azure Vacumatic, and I have been waiting on some vintage Quink blue-black to arrive. But that ink is now nearly two weeks in "arriving late" hell, and I am tired of waiting. I'll use it in something else, if it ever arrives. 

 

I loaded this one up with 4001 Royal Blue, and it's a delight. It writes a medium line, though not crazy wet with this ink. The section is a little small, which may take a little getting-used-to, but the pen is long enough to be able to write comfortably while unposted.

Today I am using a late model Parker “51” with a fine nib.
