Evershar-Parker III: Eversharp made in UK


Recommended Posts

I continue in this posting my ramblings on the pens of Eversharp of the 50s and the Eversharp-Parker of the early 60s that led to the Parker 45. The earlier postings are in these links (Eversharp I (deja-vue) and Evesharp-Parker II: 10,000 words pen).


The pen that I want to discuss today is an Eversharp pen which was made in UK.

Initially I thought that the name was viking The only reason that I know the name is that the name was Viking because my first sample had the chaulk marks on it.

Later I found one with Vanguard in the chalk marks and another with the name V.10. All of them have the v-shaped top on the cap which is identical to the Evesharp-Parker II: 10,000 words pen. The plastics are also of the same color and quality that one can see in the Big Es. Both bear the Eversharp name inscribed at the bottom of the cap and behind it clearly marked Made in UK




The clips bear the familiar E symbol of Eversharp.


I have two of them one with a strainless and 14K nibs. The 14K has remarkable flex.



The nibs appear very similar to those of the english Parker Slimfolds. In fact the feeds are also similar, as seen below (the black one is the Slimfold).


the filler is also interesting. It is an aerometric filler with an all plastic cage. Clearly the sign of a cost cutting times. The breather tube is visible.


I do not know whether this is a post 1958 or pre-1958 pen. The connections with the 10,000 words pen and other Parker - Eversharp pens is clear. If you have any information about this pen I would appreciate receiving it.

Great photos and discussion, Antonios! I went back and looked at your previous articles and I have to say I look forward to looking over your shoulder as you explore the Eversharp/Parker connection.


Merrry Xmas, Dan

Hey AZ, another great thread and photos.


Have you figured out any ryhme or reason to the naming - ie. combination of nib/cap style? It would probably take more samples to say, but it is a start.



So if you have a lot of ink,

You should get a Yink, I think.

Always looking for pens by Baird-North, Charles Ingersoll, and nibs marked "CHI"

John, I have no idea. I dont know anything else about these pens other than what I wrote here. I found two couple of months ago, and another two two weeks ago. I may have one more coming soon. I will be updating this post as I figure out more.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
