Parker Duofold Slimfold Mk. II in Black.

Regular price £45.00

The Parker Slimfold was added to the immensely successful U.K. Duofold range in 1962.  The cap and clip design was changed to this Mk. ll design in the mid 1960s and the 'New Slimfold' was introduced in 1971.

Despite the name the Slimfold is a very comfortable 14.4 cm. in length when posted for use, only marginally shorter than the Parker 51.

This pen is a fine example of a MKII Slimfold, made in England around 1965.  The MkII differs from the original in that it has a terminal cap ring and a more modern version of the 'arrow' clip.  The cap ring wraps around inside the cap lip so preventing cracks, a common fault in the original Slimfold.

The cap and barrel have an excellent surface with a deep shine and the Gold filling on the clip, cap stud, and cap ring are simillarly pristine.  The Mk.ll did not have a barrel imprint, a practice that was carried over to the subsequent model.

The pen has been thoroughly cleaned, checked and tested.  The filling system works well and the 14 Ct. Gold No. 5 nib writes with a smooth and consistent fine line.  It is ideal for someone with a small 'hand' or for more detailed work.
