Vintage Pens: Parker Duofold
Vintage Pens: 4108 Parker Duofold
Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Click the headline to see why we're so excited about this senior jade Parker Duofold. Looks at that nib! It has the early "Lucky Curve" imprint. There's a little scratching on the nib under the imprint, but the 14k gold nib writes a very nice, dry extra-fine line. You'll feel the paper under your nib, but it isn't what we'd consider a scratchy nib. This is quite possibly the closest Parker Duofolds ever came to a modern Japanese extra-fine nib. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The inkfeed is a Christmas tree feed, but it no longer has its curve. Thus, this pen has an unlucky curve. There's brassing on the clip but no cracks in the cap or barrel. Some discoloration, but we've seen much worse. Look closely at the photo, and you'll see the crisp barrel imprint with "Lucky Curve" in the banner. 13.9cm capped.
