Parker 51 Classic in teal blue, Steel cap - Medium Italic nib

Regular price £225.00

Refurbished English 51 Classic in teal blue with steel cap from the mid/late 1950s - fitted with a medium italic 14k gold nib

This is fitted with a 14k gold medium italic nib with a writing width varying from 0.4mm on horizontal lines to 0.8mm vertical strokes. The purpose of a italic nib is to give variation in line width unlike standard fine, medium or broad nibs which produce the same line width (monoline) regardless of which direction the nib is travelling.  This italic nib is cursive as the usually sharp edges have been smoothed

This fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges

Condition B/1 medium italic - (Ref 12667)

We have fully serviced this pen which includes disassembling the pen, ultrasonically cleaning all the parts and fitting a new pliglass ink sac. We then reassemble the pen, check ink flow and the smoothness of the nib. We also check and adjust the tightness and positioning of the clip. 

This pen comes with our normal 12 month warranty.  We keep a detailed record of each customer's purchases so if you need to call us, we will have all the information here to answer any query
