Condition and information:
After the long lasting success of the Parker 75, which was surprisingly still Parker best selling pen in the 70s and 80s, Parker needed a new pen in the early 90s. Parker commissioned Hollington Associates from London with chief designer Geoff Hollington to design new lines of pens. Those included the Insignia and the Sonnet line. The new line was marketed as a precision-crafted, high-performance writing instrument based on an ergonomic design. The Sonnet line included many astonishing designs and finishes. There were 18 models introduced, and this one was called the Cascade Silver. The pen has a beautiful guilloche pattern finish, with deep lines producing some amazing texture and reflections. It is silver plated but finished in a brilliant shine. The special thing about this pen was that it was made for Audi as a high end marketing pen. All Sonnets were originally fitted with a solid gold nib, however not this one, as it was probably done for Audi's request and hence fitted with a steel nib. We also assume that the Audi engraving on the cap was done in the Parker factory due to its extreme precision. The pen is very heavy, made entirely out of steel, it is very well balanced and feels great while writing. The pen form factor is a the classic, cigar shipped, simple yet powerful. It has a distinct click sound when closing the cap, posting it its very easy as well, giving the pen the full length and balance it needs. The nib is very smooth and gentle on the paper and smooth, fine size, precise writer, it does not feel stiff, rather it has a nice soft flex. An amazing and rare Parker pen, worth any attention. It is in mint condition with minimal signs of use.
