This is the first expensive fountain pen I bought, the Parker 75, not made anymore, has had many years of writing fun. This one has a broad nib that doesn’t write very broad. When I bought this pen, I only knew of Parker inks, but then got into Waterman that has much more colours, like violet and brown. The Parker colours were limited. Now there is many colours to choose with Noodlers ink. In High School and two first year of college I used the Parker Vector and had like a dozen of them in different colours but no coloured ink only Parker cartridges. I gave them all away but some people are still collecting them. Now, in the advent of no writing of cursive there are no pens like these in my college, but rollerball isn’t bad, but expensive if one writes alot, but most people don’t write a lot. The cheapest way to write is with a bottle not cartridges one is paying for the convenience. As years past on I bought many pens and greatly enjoy them, they last a lifetime. So, do your own collection if this interest you and you love writing in great amounts.
This beautiful pen the Herringbone Conklin in orange,been mine for many years, have a weakness for orange. This will start me to write this autumn. It was bought many years ago, but it is one of my favorite pens, heavy large pen, with a good medium nib that is smooth, has no problems in the least. I imagine I can write forever with this pen, so here I start my novel once again. I bought this incredible colour Noodler’s Apache Sunset which has the same colour as the pen. I also like Noodler’s Brown Beaver which is a rich brown colour, and I am low on it, will order that soon. Holding my pen with my guitar slide.
