The Parker "51" has been dubbed 'the world's most wanted pen' and indeed it is the worlds most sold fountain pen. The Parker "51" took eleven years to develop but Parker sold over 20 million pens during more than 30 years.
It was named the Parker "51" because Parker felt that they needed a name that wouldn't be hard to pronounce in any country and also easy to remember. The Parker "51" is probably the most functional fountain pen ever made. It never leaks, always works and rarely ever breaks.
Here we have a superb 1950's MkIII version of the pen, fully restored in house (having been stripped down, ultrasonically cleaned and re-assembled) and dip tested. An all time classic ready to provide years of faithful service with a delightful smooth fine nib which writes a fine / extra fine line - very smooth indeed.
