Parker 17 in Red.

Regular price £40.00

The Parker '17' was added to the immensely successful Duofold range in 1962. It originally had an exposed nib but was changed to a hooded version, this pen, in 1964.  It was made in two versions, the 'standard' and the 'Super'.  The more expensive 'Super 17' had an unusually wide, gold filled cap band and a Gold filled ring at the end of the barrel. 

This pen is a fine example of a Parker '17' standard', it was made in England around the mid sixties.

The pen has is in exceptional conditiion throughout, it has been fully cleaned and serviced.  The barrel and section are first class, as is the Gold filling, 

The filling system is efficient and easy to use.  The 14Ct. Gold Parker nib is a gem, it writes with a super smooth and consistent medium line, perhaps a little on the broad side.  At 14.2 cm. when posted the '17' is a decent length and has a very solid and well balanced feel, it is a very 'Easy' writer.

The Parker '17' is not a rare pen by any means but one in this condition comes along very infrequently.  The '17' is a very underrated pen which has stood the test of time.  It is good quality Gold nibbed pen at a fraction of the price of a modern equivalent.
