The original bold colour of the Parker Duofold - Big Red solidly put to the rest the belief that the public preferred their pens in black and set the stage for the widespread adoption of colour in pens that followed a few short years later. From the start, the Parker Duofold Big Red's disruptive, energetic colour stirred the interest of customers and remained the only available colour in the Parker Duofold range until black was introduced in 1923. The Big Red remains an emblematic pen in the Parker and Duofold history.
Authentic, with a sense of strenghth and excellence brought by opulent details and superior craftmanship, the Duofold collection captures the elegance of fine writing heritage with a contemporary touch. The Duofold collection is based on the era of Jazz and Art Deco and reflects the abundance and style of this time. It is a collection of writing instruments with exceptional character and outstanding design.
The fountain pen uses cartridges or a converter and has an 18 kt gold nib in two sizes (Fine or Medium). The Duofold pen is available in 3 sizes, the large ''Centennial'', classical ''International'', or the smaller ''Demi''.
Parker is over a century leader in design and production of the best pens in the world. These pens are not only fine writing instruments, they never let you down. Moreover they give status to every generation. This has resulted that Parker pens have become a style icon.
