The last great mass-produced fountain pen for the masses might well have been the Parker 45. Affordable, durable and dependable, these were basic fountain pens for the general public, when the general public was still interested in fountain pens in the U.S. Our vintage pen is in nearly like-new conditions. We don't think the pen has seen ink. There are a couple teeny scratches on the brushed-steel cap and barrel, and that is it for damage. It has no converter, but it can still use modern Parker ink cartridges and some Parker converters. It has a steel nib marked medium, which we haven't dipped as it looks pristine and uninked. 13.7cm capped.
