    Oh...I like your handwriting style..........mine is a tad more flowerly
    All P45 have been great writers; I have F, M and B nibs; I wish I had an XF.
    I don;t see a difference between the steel and gold nibs though, maybe I'm just dumb.

    * The pen on the left is the one I have used the most, it was a present from my great-aunt when I turned 9, I used it thourgh grade school, high school and college. You can see that the back is polished form being posted most of the time. (I think it is a CT)
    * The gray was my 1st FP (2nd grade) - clip is bent
    * The 45GT belonged to my dad and I got it after he passed away, it was my special pen during college and besides a couple of times it has leaked during long flights it's always been there for me.
    Recently, the converter developed a leak so I use it with cartridges now (realoading them with a syringe)
    *The rest I've found somewhere, and the blue belong to a set with pencil and pen that I found at a estate sale.

    First time anyone has liked my handwriting!!
    This was the school's handwriting style, and I always got not so good grades (70 and 80/100)
    For years everyone told me it resembles a doctor's handwriting... thus I became one.

    I dont see a difference between the steel and gold nibs.

    It is only about nib flex, which will change the ink flow from the tip to paper.

    Hardly that important if you are happy with both.


    I have always found that XF & Needlepoint nibs are very specialist used only architects and engineers et al. Mostly for very precise line drawings.


    I thought that your handwriting was concise.
    Most UK Doctors write like spiders, it is very hard to decipher what they have written.



    Would wish to see any other Parkers that you have, please.

    This one is a CT i believe
    I got it from my great-aunt when I was 9 and have used it a lot... you can see the end of the barrel polished by the cap spring.

    Smiling alot.............


    I always thought that XXF nibs were for line drawing, hardly for handwriting.

    Would very interested see any images of this nib in use.


    ' I wonder if we should start a P45 appreciation thread '

    These pens have a clever design and are vastly underrated



    The image shown is not mine, just someone I know

    @proteus It is a #62 Accountant nib, Very fine (maybe <0.2mm) but smooth and nice as long as I slow down. Stingy in th ink flow
    It's sensitive to pressure and catches lint from paper easily though, almost like back when I had to use rapid-o-graphs for technical drawing

    Many thanks for your image.

    I have never seen handwriting using a P45 XXF before.

    Rather impressive stuff, if I may say

    ( As an aside I have always thought Parker called these nibs - 11, clearly I am wrong )

    My research files of these nibs are attached.



    pajaro

    Never seen a plum one.

    Think I have seen almost all of the P45 versions of the years.

    Including ones made in Mexico, Argentina et al and all the prototypes known.

    Have added some rare ones made in South America, unusual colours pretty much P45 Deluxe CT versions

    This one is an Accountant Nib (#62)
    marked A on the unit
    It should be very stiff for writing small nbrs on ledgers
