Parker Lucky Curve / Jack Knife Ring Top – Super Flex (SOLD)

Parker Lucky Curve / Jack Knife Ring Top – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is an early Parker “Lucky Curve” Jack Knife Safety 20 1/2 pen in BCHR. Latest pat. date on this button-filler is 1912. The black hard rubber is still pretty black with only light fading. The chasing is also quite good with minimum wear. The imprints are very crisp on the cap and a little worn on the barrel with the “Lucky Curve” mostly worn off. The “20 1/2” on the end cap is a little faded but still easily readable. The top of the ring top has some brassing. The 14kt. “Lucky Curve” #2 is a beauty of a nib. It’s a soft and rather wet fine that works great as a normal writer, but it also has some great flex. It ranges quite easily up to BBB+ (1.8mm), has pretty decent responsiveness, and the Lucky Curve feed does well keeping up with the nib. It’s a fantastic hundred year old Parker with great flex. Plus, it’s portable and makes a great writer.
