I've just received a Parker 100 set in Smoked Bronze and was immediately 'taken' by the impressive dimensions. It really is a large and very substantial pen with a very solid, chunky feel. It was clearly inspired by the Parker 51 but on a much larger scale. It put me in mind of a new 'Mini' car compared to the original. I haven't written with the pen yet, I'll use it for a few days and post a report on performance.
