As far as we're concerned, Parker Duofold Espartos are the holy grail of modern luxury pens for Parker lovers. Only fitting that it pays tribute to Spanish papermaking, and the fiber patterns therein, our Parker Duofold Esparto fountain pen is made from solid sterling silver. Parker didn't scrimp on the silver, either. Ours is virtually new in the box...all of its boxes. It does not appear to have done any writing. Click the headline for close-ups. Its 18k gold nib is platinum plated and sports a spade design, just like the cap jewel. Inside the pen is a converter. You can also write with Parker cartridges. Its lacquered wooden presentation box looks grey in some lights, and green in others. There are a couple of long scratches by the hinges and a dent the size of a thumb tack on the side of the lid near the back corner. The nib is marked medium, but we haven't written with it, in case it has never seen ink.
