About This Pen
In the late 19-teens, Parker was in its final stages of producing its many types of long ebonite fountain pens before moving to the first Duofolds in 1921. Its Lucky Curve feeds had become established technology, and the Jacknife Safety caps were wonderful marketing devices. This pen, a black hard rubber example from 1917-20 that is in the No. 22-23 size range, marks the transition to Duofold, with its “turban” blind cap, button filler, Lucky Curve feed, and thicker girth. It is a shorter model, at 4 3/8” long capped, but has full girth and is not too short to hold comfortably. This pen is in excellent condition for a 100 year old pen, all original except for the new sac nipple (crafted by Ron Zorn), which is under the sac, not visible. The nib is a full flex, imprinted “Parker Lucky Curve Pen”. This is a special pen, rarely seen. It’s sturdy enough to use regularly, but a case is recommended.
This pen is not for sale.
