Vintage Pens: 3165: Penol: De Luxe
Are you familiar with the Penol story? It is one of our favorites in fountain pen history. Penol was a Danish pen company. Its owner originally imported Parker pens for sale and distribution in Europe. Yet, once he figured out the pen market and learned about manufacturing, he recreated all of Parker's best designs and started his one company called Penol! It was a huge success, but the Nazi occupation permanently crippled the company. These pens are tough to find in the U.S. and are coveted by those who know. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. We aren't sure if it is a 14k gold nib or a gold-plated nib. Click the headline for a close-up. Either way, it has a rare original nib that is OBLIQUE with FLEX! No cracks. Brassing and light wear. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3149: Parker: Duofold Slim Junior
We are particularly impressed by the color of this Parker Duofold Deluxe Jr. fountain pen in the streamlined motif. We've restored it with a new ink sac, and there no cracks or deep scratches. Maintaining near perfection is its cap, with only small spots of discoloration. The barrel didn't fair as well, but it isn't nearly as bad as many of these same pens. Its imprint is faint but legible. Writing a wet, medium line with a whisper of feedback is its 14k gold nib and Christmas tree inkfeed. Click the headline for close-ups. 11.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3138: Parker: Duofold Senior
It's not easy being green, but this oversized senior Parker Duofold makes it look pretty easy. Our vintage pen's cap is nearly perfect for color and no cracks. You will see the barrel is darker in real life by 3 or 4 shades. Still, compared to most green Duofolds of the 1920s, this one is pretty impressive. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. Click the headline to see the original 14k gold nib close up. In our right hands it writes a very smooth, wet medium line. Yet, the close-up will reveal that the top tine slopes up to a slightly higher bottom tine. It can look a little oblique, but the pen writes normally in our right hand. None of us is left handed, so we aren't sure how that side works. It has a "Christmas Tree" inkfeed. Some brassing on the pocket clip. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3137: Parker: Duofold Senior
We have never seen a Parker Duofold Senior in jade celluloid this close to perfect! If you look closely, you can see three faint browning rings in the cap, but the cap still looks fairly impressive. NO CRACKS! Heavy brassing can be found on the cap ring, with additional brassing at the top and bottom of the clip. In an effort to prevent further discoloration we have not added a new ink sac. Yet, if you want this as a daily writer, we can put that ink sac in for you. The spring is properly engaged to the button in the tail. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. The 14k gold nib and feed are the correct replacement parts designed for Parker Duofolds, which are fairly common to find in Duofolds that had a lifetime warranty. It writes a smooth fine line. 13.8cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2850: Krone: Panther
Slinking through the urban jungle, the elusive Krone Panther is one smooth luxury pen as it pounces on the pages of your life. We love the retro button-filling system on this pre-owned pen. The original ink sac is good and held water when we flushed the system, which didn't seem to have much previous ink in it. There is almost no wear on the cap or barrel. We polished up the silver trim that offers such nice contrast to the all black pen. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a delightfully smooth, wet medium line. Thickness in the section makes the pen easier to grip for long periods of writing without cramping. 12.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0034: Parker: Duofold
We think this is quite possibly one of the prototypes for the Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen made c. 1925 or '26. We cannot guarantee it, but the aluminum swivel holder is the main clue, as Parker never mass produced it. It is not marked, and it was most likely custom machined. The hard rubber version of it went into production in 1926. The hard-rubber Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen is in great condition. The imprint is practically perfect, except for fading out on the very far right side. The ink feed is a "Christmas Tree." The 14k nib writes a fine-medium line. The tail is in perfect condition, and there is no brassing on its gold ring. The gold button shows no brassing. The pen base has no chips or cracks that we can see. The felt on the bottom was replaced. The pen holder is a chocolatey brown but in good working order. The spring underneath it still pushes back. This pen has been fully restored and works wonderfully. The pen measures 19cm, and the base measures 15cm X 9cm X 2cm.

Vintage Pens: 2237: Parker: Lucky Curve
Just ahead of the Duofold came the Parker Lucky Curve. The "Lucky Curve" referred to the inkfeed that was supposedly more efficient due to a curve on the piece inside the pen that would help funnel the last drops of ink to the nib. It was a cool gimmick that didn't really work any better than any other inkfeed, but it was in the Parker advertising for close to a decade. Jade celluloid is highly discolored with lots of brassing on the trim, but this pen features a really hard-to-find extra-fine "Lucky Curve" nib. Click the headline to see it close up. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, it doesn't have its original inkfeed. The strong imprint simply says "Parker" in an early font with the usual boiler plate info. No "Duofold" or "Lucky Curve." The cap has two hairline cracks in the lip. The end caps have some edges missing. It is a junior size pen, but the nib alone is worth the price. 11.4cm capped.
