Medium nib, Twist ink converter fill system.
This unusual and stylish late vintage fountain pen was made by Parker in the England c1981 and is reported to have been discontinued with the rest of the series in 1983. It was termed the Parker “50” or Parker "Falcon". It followed the success of the original brushed steel Flighter version released in U.S.A. in 1978. The nib is an integral part of the section and on its launch Parker advertised it as the second pen without a separate nib – the first being the quill. Its sleek, elegant and futuristic styling is quite distinct. The polished nib tip is pleasantly offset by the matt brown nib section and, in this instance, the Signet gold plated barrel, cap with Parker arrow clip. It has the words “Parker Made in England U E” around the cap lip. It is a slim pen measuring 130mm with cap on and 140mm with cap on barrel end. It has a Parker twist fill ink converter filling system fitted (so you could use bottled ink) and it will also take current Parker ink cartridges. Condition is very good as can be seen in the montage. With its sleek aerodynamic styling this late vintage fountain pen is suitable to add to a collection or to use as an every day writer if you like a smooth medium nib. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you may also select your method of payment.
