Description

Parker re-launch the Parker 51 maintaining the hallmarks of the original that gave the 51 its identity while leveraging technical advancements and our expertise and craftsmanship to ensure its fit for use in the modern world. The name Parker 51 was no coinsidence, Parker had named all their models untill then, but had come to the conclusion that if a model was given a name, this name detracted from the name of the brand. A number would therefore suffice better for a new pen, also because a number has the same meaning in all languages. A trial run of the newly developed pen was put out in 1939, which was the 51st year of the Parker Pen Company’s existence. The pen was therefore given the type number “51” – according to the official account of the factory.

The new Parker 51 is identical in silhouette to the original. Different is the shape of the nib, the length of the clip and closing system. The nib is not tube shaped but has a traditional pen blade, of course this nib is completely hidden in the front part of the pen. This construction ensures that the pen always starts easily and does not dry quickly. Furthermore, also the length of the clip is slightly longer than the original and the new Parker 51 has a screw cap

The Parker 51 Deluxe fountain pen fills via cartridge or converter and is available with a Fine or Medium 18kt gold nib.

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.

    Rebooting the iconic 51 was bold, but I think Parker nailed it.
    They’ve given it a; screw-top for increased quality, and the barrel is near-identical.
    The hood for the nib is more angular than the original, doesn’t cover the underside in any way, and there is the slight feel that you have a Jotter nib hiding underneath, but it still looks classy.
    The plum colour is a perfect complement to the classy feel, as are the vertical etched lines down the lid, with a long-than-original arrow.
    It writes superbly and the balance is just right – rests easy on the hand but substantial, without seeming heavy at any point.
    Best pen by Parker in many years.
    Appelboom delivery prompt, well-packaged as always.

    I grew up using Parkers with hidden nibs. I couldn’t resist this new series. The pen is well made and light. Nice design. Initially the nib was ‘scratchy’ and jumped but I polished it lightly and it writes really well now. Tends to dry out quicker than expected. The gold cap has a nice design on it. Unfortunately the clip became loose shortly after purchase but Parker (via Appelboom) quickly replaced the whole, so I don’t think this is a design fault… just a lemon… and shows good service. The cap is screw on which I actually like when carrying in my jacket pocket – no chance of it opening up and staining. Very happy with this buy!
