Parker Duofold – Wet Noodle  (FOR PRICE SEE HERE)

This is a Canadian made Park Duofold in black celluloid. The pen looks very nice. There is some light scratching throughout as is to be expected. There are a few deeper scratches toward the back of the barrel, but even that isn’t terribly noticeable without look for it. The clip ring is a bit larger in diameter than the cap, and I believe it is not original. The clip sizing for this particular pen is not a typical standard size, and I was unable to locate the correct size. If you didn’t know, you’d just assume that was the way the pen was supposed to look. The only brassing I see is on the ball of the clip. The bands are in great condition. Imprints are still quite good. This Duofold is quite rare, however, in that it sports an ultra flexible wet noodle 14kt. Parker Duofold nib. Duofold nibs are generally very firm, but Parker did produce a very small number of these nibs. The flex on this is very easy, though not quite paintbrush easy. It flexes up to a whopping 2.5mm going from 0.4mm to 2.5mm (a 2.1mm range!). It writes smoothly as a very wet and smooth F (0.4mm). Overall a fantastic pen. FOR PRICE SEE HERE
