Price: $79.99
Less than a decade ago, Parker announced a revolutionary new filling system for a pen that they simply called "5th Generation." It was made for the Parker Ingenuity. It looks like a fountain pen, but it writes with a marker refill! It was an oddity to us until we bought this pen in a collection and stuck a new refill in. OMG. It is a smooth writing experience...nothing like those felt-time markers that had drag. Plus this is a practically new pen with minimal wear. The brown, textured rubber cap and barrel with silvery trim is heavier and wider than you might think from the photos. (Click headline for more.) Brand new refill. 14cm capped.
