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!

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!

[Sold!-This pen is going to Florida] Sweet blue Parker Vacumatic!

Here is a beautiful Parker Vacumatic. The azure blue colored vacumatics were only made from 1940-1948. Since there are no barrel imprints remaining I have to used other clues to narrow the manufacture date. This pen was likely made in 1946 or 1947. I base this judgment mostly on how the clip was manufactured. After World War 2, Parker began stamping the clips rather than molding them. A stamped clip will have a negative impression on the underside, while a molded clip does not. Since it is difficult to see this difference without taking the clip off you will have to take my word that it is stamped :).

Sheaffer 1.5 mm Italic!

Here is another Sheaffer for you to check out. This one comes with a new converter so you can fill it with your favorite ink. This pen is equipped with a huge 1.5 mm italic nib. An Italic nib has more pronounced edges making its lines crisper than a stub. Unfortunately the crisper lines also mean not as smooth of a writing experience when compared to a stub. This isn’t a big deal with such a large nib. Nibs this size are more suited to careful lettering than casual writing.  Get this pen, with a brand new converter for $25 plus shipping!
