    Only in a ballpoint and a pencil, for some reason a fountain pen was never released.
    Oh, I remember that there wasnt one in the catalog at the time, but brains are a funny thing and I think another pen (probably a flighter) and the Classic Cisele set got mixed up in my memory, brain has had 30 years or so to scramble it.

    I admired the T1 in the Fischler/Schneider book for years. Then I handled one at the DC show, and my interest faded. I suppose if I found one at an antique shop or flea market I'd grab it, but I decided that it wasn't worth the $350 price that was being asked for them at the time.

    The great part about being a pen mechanic is that you get to handle and try some great pens and get paid to do it. You get to see the pen in all of its glory - and all of its weaknesses in one go.

    Most collectors always have one or two Parker pens they wished that they could had owed but never quite got there.

    For me, it was the modern P100.

    Always wanted the Cobalt blue version
    I have that exact pen. Ironically its the only colour combination it came in that i dont particularly care for. But i got a good deal on the bay for it. Its nice. Decent writer. A little heavy. I prefer a 51 or a snorkel

    Ive considered selling the 100 in order to fund buying the colour i want, but i know i would likely buy another 51 (or two) with the money and never get another 100 in my collection.

    So i hang on to it.

    Not so much 'always wanted,' but want back: a Parker Lady and some other smallish lever-filler I gave away to local pen-using friends.

    Though the space pen looks pretty cool.
    My other pen is a Montblanc.

    And my other blog is a tumblr!

    My eBooks. Because why not.

    I just purchased one of my most wanted Parkers- a 180 flighter. That nib has always caught my eye, and once it gets here I can check out the whole variable width thing that I have been wondering about forever.
