Anyways, it is quiet thin for a fountain pen. Initially I was turned off by that too but after writing a little with it I actually started liking it. It would be a good candidate to take around to meetings being very inconspicuous. Loved the blue color of the pen as well as the ink (cartridge) that came with it. I struggled a bit with the cartridge that came with it and finally got the right side in (the blue tab if you are wondering). Better instructions would be appreciated.
Not just that it writes well but the blue ink made my bad handwriting look better. The writing shows lighter and darker portions of the text which look attractive to me. You know, the portions where you overwrite a letter v/s the portions that one goes over just once.
I know everyone wants us to buy their high end products rather than buying their $20 products but Parker could've made a better impression on me by including a converter. I've bought cheaper pens which came with a free converter.
I own several fountain pens - half of them are the cheaper Chinese pens. This Parker is much more reliable though. I never use the ink cartridges when I get a new pen, but my converter hadn’t come yet, so I tried this one out. It comes with blue ink (I hate blue ink!), but I absolutely fell in love with the color of the ink! It’s the only blue ink about which I’ve ever said - “Wow! ! I like that color!” It has a lot of purple in it, so this has become my card-writing pen because of the reliability and nice ink color. I’ll continue to use their ink unless I find another similar color (I usually use Noodler’s inks due to their bulletproof qualities). The blue ink cartridge is the only blue I’ve ever looked forward to writing with. In fact, out of probably 50 gel and fountain pens I own, this is the only blue ink I use in any of them.
The pen posts well and writes well - not too wet or dry. It is well-tuned right out of the packaging. The nib has a small rounded tip that keeps the fine tip from being scratchy. I own a Lamy EF that I had to tune with 2500 sandpaper because it was so scratchy. Not this Parker! I rinsed it, put the cartridge in it, and it started writing well in about a minute.
My only complaint is that it’s pretty light for a fountain pen. It truly is a jotter - long writing times could lead to hand fatigue because the pen doesn’t have enough weight to glide like a quality fountain pen does. That’s my only knock I have about the pen. However, you can write relatively fast without any loss of ink, and the cap keeps the ink wet so that you don’t even have to tap it before beginning to write with it.
If you’re wanting to try out fountain pens for the first time, or if you’re looking for an Every Day Carry fountain, I suggest you go with this one. Parker converters are a little expensive, but their Qwink ink cartridges are decent (again, the blue is unique).
The power of the pen lies in the balanced weight, smooth and reliable strokes, and most importantly—the oversized ink cartridges that mean less chance of running out of ink when busy writing. I cannot count the number of colleagues that have commented on the pen, then order one for themselves who have had the same reaction. If you are a seasoned fountain pen user, you already understand what I am talking about. But, if you are new—you cannot go wrong with this pen. Order it, order the actual Parker oversized cartridges, and you will understand what it means to lose yourself in your writing and the pen becomes part of your creative process.
1. The pen looks great. It’s thin, sleek and looks great.
2. This pen does not come with a converter for ink, but it does come with an ink cartridge. I have not jumped into the bottles of ink even though I’ve heard its the best way to use fountain pens.
3. It wrote well right out of the box, but the drag on the pen is really annoying to me. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong with this pen, but the drag and skips are horrible. Again, I’m using a cartridge, but I have cleaned the nib and done all the care instructions with the pen, but as I write on any kind of paper, I find myself having to start a letter 3 or 4 times before it starts writing. For example starting to write an I or an F or H, I have to draw the line 3 times before it shows up. The drag feels like nails on a chalkboard to me.
4. I was wondering if this is just the way fountain pens were, so I decided to buy a Pilot Metropolitan since so many recommend it as a good beginner pen and compare. What a difference. No drag, extremely smooth and absolutely no skips. I’ve thrown my PARKER in a drawer, and would return it if I was still in the return window. Just not impressed.
I realize this pen is not extremely expensive, but I expected more. Now that I have this other pen that was even less, I feel like I was robbed with the Parker pen.
