Nib buffing paper

This is some of the paper/film I use on the pens I repair. I want every pen I sent out to write as smooth as possible, which requires high-quality buffing material. As far as I know there isn’t a finer buffing film than these. I have two types of for sale, .5 micron (tan) and .1 micron (green). Both grits measure 5″ across. Just for your reference, .5 micron is equivalent to 60,000 grit sand paper (see a grit guide here). These papers are very durable, and if used properly, will last for dozens of nibs. If you are interested in trying your hand at smoothing, Richard Binder has a great guide here. These films are the best way to get a glassy smooth writing experience! $12 each

Parker 45 Red with Gold Nib!

When I first ran into Parker 45s I wasn’t real excited about them. Α while back a customer sent me one for a tune-up and I was really impressed. These pens can be every bit as smooth as a 51, yet they have a bit more spring in their nib. This little bit of flex allows for more line variation than you can get with a 51 or 21. Some of them, like this one, even come with gold nibs! These pens are hard to beat for the price. Get this one for $45!

Parker 51 – Gold and Black

This pen was produced in the last year that Parker made the vacumatic 51, 1948. Beginning in the later portion of 1948 Parker released the new aerometric models. This pen has a rarer line pattern on the cap. Notice the alternation between wavy lines and straight lines. Unfortunately, this cap does have a couple of small dents, but it is still in very good shape! Get this pen for $80!

Dove Grey Parker 51 – Fine

Here is a nice vac-fill Parker 51 for you. This pen dates to 1944, but it has received a different cap somewhere along the way. The blue diamond cap went away around 1947, so this cap had to come from a later Parker 51. Even though this is not 100% original, it still is a wonderful writer. Where else can you find a pen of this caliber at this price? Get it for $70!
