    I've always been attracted to these Parkers and particularly the red and green colors.

    Today it is a black Parker 45 with a size fine steel nib, inked with Chesterfield Capri Blue.

    Giving my vintage Parkers some love today, to keep the ink flowing.

    Parker 51 Special (M) - Lamy Black
    Parker 21 (F) - Pelikan Edelstein Onyx
    Parker 41 (F) - Aurora Blue

    Just inked up the 41. Previously, I'd run some Lamy Blue in it. Worked fine, but the nib is as close to EF as any of my Parkers in the 51/41/21 family, so I wanted something a little wetter. Initial tests are looking good with the Aurora.

    My trusty late Parker 61 Mk III Custom Burgundy with a smooth broad-ish side of medium nib. By no means collection quality it has been my everyday work writer since it replaced a Sonnet rollerball a couple of years ago.

    Parker 61 capillary fill, fine point. I was taking notes in a notebook that tends to blot, and the very fine point worked well. And the capillary filling system worked perfectly. No moving parts! I have grumbled about the capillary, but maybe it really was a serious advance on previous filling systems.

    Golden Pearl Vacumatic with date code 3rd qtr 1941 on the barrel and the nib. The diaphragm was recently replaced again, maybe because of the ink I left in the pen for too long.

    I've been carrying a vintage Parker 45 "flighter" a couple of month. I like to use it for when a more permanent ink is handy.

    I am using a Parker 51 gold plated Insignia, with a broad nib. For many years one of my holy grail pens, which I was fortunate enough to buy, and which I love. It is second only to my Mont Blanc which my wife bought me before we married some forty years ago.

    Congratulations! That Parker 51 Insignia gold plated pen is a great pen, and a broad nib too!

    It is a great nib, but imagine my surprise when I had a well respected nib expert tune the flow and he told me it was a Parker 61 nib, not a Parker 51 nib!

    Parker 51 Midnight Blue, US medium nib, and a teal Parker 51 Special, also medium. I'm auditing a class at Columbia with a brilliant philosopher named Axel Honneth, who is stuck in Frankfort, Germany, for the semester. Course is European Social Philosophy, and today Axel talked about Hannah Arendt's mid-'50s book, The Human Condition. I write in Levenger Notabilia To-do notebooks, descended from the Notabilia Grid Notebooks I used as a "software engineer". The graph paper is great for indenting, which we use when writing anything that follows on from the C Programming Language.

    (Long ago, my first computer programming boss had us write with a Pentel .5mm pencil on graph paper, explaining that customers associated the graph paper and fine pencil with precision.)
