Parker Flighter models: Full List?..



TheRedBeard

Recommended Posts

TheRedBeard

I have tried to compile a full list of Parker models (only fountain pens introduced before 2000) available in brushed stainless steel finish (either GT or CT). Some of them were/are called Flighters by Parker itself, while the others were/are occasionally called that name by users/collectors.

 

Anyway, below what I have got (in no particular order):

- 51

- 21

- 61

- 65

- 45

- 75

- 50 Falcon

- 180

- 25

- 105

- Arrow

- 95

- 15

- Jotter

- Vector

- Sonnet

 

Any additions/corrections are welcomed :) 

 

All the best is only beginning now...

Thank you, FlighterGuy - great detailed list, very useful :) 

 

However, could you, please, provide any trustworthy link/reference to the info on stainless steel T-1?  I have never heard about that prototype... 

 

And I think I have mistakenly included Jotter in my list, as now I have doubts the stainless steel FP one existed at all...

@FlighterGuy Thank you, this is awesome.

Just give me the Parker 51s and nobody needs to get hurt.

The Jotter GT FP does exist (I just checked to make sure) and now there are newer Jotter GT&CT FPs as well (looking at them).  I see that I need to update my list.  🙂

 

 

Now as far as the T-1 goes, I have a FP and a BP (another update) in stainless.  These are not actually prototypes but what I have heard is that they should be called die check pens.  Running Stainless Steel through the T-1 tooling to make sure that everything is aligned is easier on the tooling and less costly than using titanium.  So there are a few of them out there.  I do have a prototype T-1 and a heat treated T-1 tucked away.

 

However, if I was going to pull out the Stainless Steel prototype cases, it would be so unfair to all of you.  What could I place on the table?  Should I chose the Stainless Italia BP or the Falrow (Falcon/Arrow) FP or the Morse Code 105 FP or the Black Striped Classic BP or .... LOL

Thanks for your clarification on having T-1 on your list. Well, for scientific/historical research it looks correct. 

 

Whether a stainless steel Jotter FP was manufactured and available before 2000?

Never thought about it being before 2000, so take a 15 and put a new clip on it and now one has a Jotter FP in the 90s.  15s came in SS so there's no reason to think that the Jotter didn't come is SS in the 90s as well.

I had my one and the only P15 in early 90s and it was SS one :)

Jotter SS FP - just found on eBay :) 

It looks like my P15 from early 90s :)

Yep, that's the one, it comes in GT as well.  Also, the Systemark FP uses the same section and nib. I'm not sure what name Parker sold that one under since Systemarks were sold as a multiple type cartridge pens and not FPs.

That is a very detailed list of the all-Lustraloy Parker pens. One more pen that can be added is the Parker VP, see this thread:

http://fountainpenboard.com/forum/index.php?/topic/6348-parker-vp-flighter-does-it-exist/

 

Is there also a list of pens which Parker specifically (eg in catalogs, advertisements, parts lists, ... ) designated with the name "Flighter"?

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
