Parker Lucky Curve Ring Top – Wet Noodle

Parker Lucky Curve Ring Top – Wet Noodle  (On Ebay)

This Parker Lucky Curve vest size, ring top pen is made of black hard rubber with a gold-filled top. The body is nothing to write home about. The hard rubber has not faded a lot and is still very black. The body is smooth (no original chasing, I believe), but there is some light scratching throughout the pen. The imprints are faded some. Mostly they are readable, but there are a few parts you cannot read.  The gold-filled crown and ring top have no brassing, but there are some light dings. What is special about the pen is the 14kt. Parker Lucky Curve #2 nib. It writes normally as a smooth and wet writing F. It’s a really lovely, soft, elegant writer. But the flex on this pen is sheer pleasure. This nib isn’t paintbrush soft. I would even say it’s borderline between “super flex” and “wet noodle.” But the responsiveness of this nib is rare. This is a nib for artists and calligraphers. This is a wet pen, and it’s not a needle point, and that just makes the responsiveness of this nib that much more impressive. Here is a nib that will not disappoint.
