Parker Duofold Slimfold in Red.

Regular price £40.00

The Parker Slimfold was added to the immensely successful Duofold range in 1962 and changed in 1968.  Despite the name the Slimfold is a very comfortable 14.5 cm. in length when posted for use, only marginally shorter than the Parker 51.  In use it is a good sized, and very elegant pen.

This pen is a fine example, made in England around the early sixties.  The pen has been  thoroughly cleaned and checked inside and out and fully tested.  With only light user marks, the pen is in excellent vintage condition.  The cap is a smooth screw fit, it carries a Gold filled 'arrow' clip and a chevron decorated Gold filled cap band.  There are no cracks in the cap lip, this is a common and often undisclosed fault with Slimfolds, something to be very careful about.

The aerometric, squeeze bar filling system works well and is easy to use and the correct 14Ct. Gold No.5 nib is a gem.  It writes with a medium line and has a very responsive flex, giving good line variation.  It would be a very impressive writer in the right hands. 

The Parker Slimfold is a much underrated vintage fountain pen It would make a really good, practical, every day vintage writer, although the flex nib makes this pen a bit special.
