The Parker 45 was initially aimed at the economy market of the 1960s, designed by Don Doman (who also designed the jotter, Parker 75 and many more all time classics) the pen became a stalwart of the Parker lineup.
Over 20 years of production, the Parker 45 lineup expanded and grew to include the Parker 45 Flighter, Insignia, Custom, GT and other models as popular demand grew for what became known as a reliable and affordable everyday writing pen
