Vintage Pens: 3694: Parker: Duofold
As Parker Vacumatic sales flagged a little, Parker realized it needed a new upper class pen that was a little cheaper than its flagship Vacumatics. The company fell back on a proven winner, the Duofold. Yet, unlike the original hit of the 1920s, this second generation Duofold electrified pen users with its cutting edge art deco design in celluloid. We restored this vacumatic-filling Parker Duofold with a new diaphragm. Try not to love its cubist jungle green and brown patterns. You can see through the barrel, which has ambered a little. The date code clearly indicates this pen was made in the first quarter of 1942. No cracks or deep scratches mar this illustrious celluloid, but there is heavy brassing on the cap band and clip. It has a great aluminum "Speedline" filler. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm, wet medium line. Firmness gives it a hint of feedback, but connoisseurs will consider it smooth. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: : Wahl-Eversharp: Doric
Wahl-Eversharp "Gold Bond" Doric with medium 14k flex nib, circa 1935. "Gold Bond" was the name Montgomery Ward used for pens they had manufactured under contract, and these use a different celluloid than Wahl-Eversharp branded pens. Restored by Stacy Hills of PaperWantsAPen. More photos available upon request.

Vintage Pens: 3387: Parker: 51
In 1941, Parker released the 51 fountain pen...so named as it was 10 years ahead of its time. Not only was it 10 years ahead of its time, it remains one of the most beloved vintage pens today! This is an earlier model from the late 1940s. It has a handsome sterling silver cap with minimal traces of wear. The vacuum filler has been restored with a new diaphragm. The blue barrel and hood are in great shape, except for some visible wear around where the cap snugged against the hood and barrel. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm extra-fine line.

Vintage Pens: 3100: Parker: 51
Hip, hip, hooray! The class of 1942 celebrated in style with this first-year 1941 Parker 51! Well, partly first year 51. Marketing material for the grand release of the Parker 51 in 1941 said that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time, which is why it was called the 51. Only first-year pens were given the aluminum tail jewel in the blind cap. Although the imprint seems to have worn off, the "Class of '42" engraving seems to be a nice verification of age. We are a little perplexed that the pen looks more teal blue than cedar blue, as would be appropriate. The sterling silver cap, which is in great condition, is a later model replacement cap. It still has a blue-diamond clip, but the jewel is plastic grey pearl--not aluminum. This vintage pen's diaphragm has been replaced, and it is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Light wear can be found in all the usual places. No cracks or dents. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2913: Parker: Vacumatic Maxima
Fenway Park has the Green Monster, and Parker seemed to try creating one of its own with this green Parker Vacumatic Maxima. Almost as wide as a Montblanc 149, at its widest point, the Maxima actually has a smaller, easier-to-handle, section for gripping. The pen is remarkably free from major wear. There's one shallow dimple in the blind cap and a few light scratches. The imprint is strong, and the pen has a 1942 date code. The cap jewel is made from the same striped celluloid as the barrel. The aluminum speedline filler has some wear but it moves easily. The pen is FULLY RESTORED with a new diaphragm. The nib is actually marked "14k / Parker / Vacumatic." It writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3065: Wasp: The Clipper
Remember the old ads for pork: The other white meat. This vintage pen can be known as the other Sheaffer Clipper. Technically, this is the Wasp "The Clipper." It comes with a fully restored skinny rod "Vacuum Filler." Wasp was a sub-brand of Sheaffer. It's imprint listing Ft. Madison, Iowa, as a home base gives it away. The vacuum filler was Sheaffer's response to the Parker Vacumatic with an empty barrel filling system. It's a rather ingenious feat of engineering. The single downstroke vacuum pump is very effective when it works. Originally designed to last forever, it turned out that forever didn't last very long. Luckily, this one has been fully restored and works very smoothly. The design looks as if the computer age met art deco. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm extra-fine line. You might need to use a touch more pressure than normal to keep it flowing. 13cm capped.
