Condition and information:
The Parker 45 model is one of the best pens ever made by Parker. It was their first cartridge model, one that captured the hearts and souls of the people with a modern design and versatility. The 45 model became so popular that Parker started to produce high-end luxurious variations of it. This was one of those models. This pen here is the first generation Parker 45, and this pen was made in the UK. The pen is entirely made out of stainless steel, with great looks, and appeal, but this also makes the pen nearly indestructible. It has very high gloss and reflection (difficult to capture in pictures), and very nice gold plated trimmings. The clip is shaped in the recognizable trademark Parker arrow symbolizing the company's pioneering attitude. The cap features nice crisp engravings that read "Parker" and "Made in England".
It features a slip on-off cap that posts nicely giving the pen a longer length and stability while writing. The pen can be used with any ink cartridge but also with bottled ink via the bladder converter, the original one is included with the pen.
The pen will provide you with the perfect writing experience, simply gliding on any paper.
The nib is superb, a true F size, solid but smooth on the paper. This is a great pen to use for small typeface letters, such as writing in pockets notebooks, and similar activities. It is a very clean pen with steady ink flow, no ink mess. And also a very easy pen to clean and maintain. The entire front section, the nib, and the feed can be simply removed with an unscrewing action. The pen has a great grip posted or not posted due to its heaviness, and great balance and feel in the hand. The Parker 45, hardly any pen had or ever will surpass the stunning looks, build quality, performance, ease of use and many more factors which make for a remarkable pen.
The pen is in mint condition, perfectly preserved and ready to be used.
