This is my first Parker fountain pen. It writes like a dream--very smooth; the nib does not drag or grab the paper so the writing motion is very fluid. This is a pen I will keep inked and in use.

This pen took me a bit to warm up to....

Always liked Parker, currently own 2 others, and the Duofold just kept calling my name.

At first look, it didn't blow me away. The detail on the pen is much harder to make out than in the promotional photos. Looked kind of plain.

However, I put it against my Waterman, Pilot, and Franklin-Christoph's and it seemed to be just a touch more shiny. Just a touch more substantial than a basic 100% resin pen. Just a touch more detail on the nib, on the cap, on the clip.

Unscrewing the body and finding all metal pieces are gold and gold tone...

These little touches of fine detail make this pen one of my favorites. The parts contribute positively to the sum of the pen.

Read reviews that "Parker isn't what it used to be," but there's always going to be those people...

The Duofold is a top notch, high attention to detail, classic pen with a long heritage behind it.

One thing I don't like is that Newell Brands is very proud that they now own Parker and stamp their name in the manual, reminding you Parker isn't "what it used to be" in a sense.

Also, I wish I went for a Centennial. The International is excellent, but I'd personally wish I went for the Centennial after handling the International and getting a sense of its gravitas. If you enjoy "regular" size pens, you'd love the International.

Writing with the fine nib... it can be smooth, but not like buttery smooth. A hint of feedback to let you know you're writing.

With that said... I can whole-heartedly recommend the Duofold for those with a sense of history and classic taste. It will never compete with flashy models and swirling resins, but this pen has serious class and heritage.

Parker Duofold International Video



Video Script

This is the Parker Duofold International Fountain Pen. It comes in a large cardboard box with a gold colored lid, the Parker logo printed on the top of the box lid, which is a hinge-style lid. It lifts open, soft fabric interior, the Parker logo printed on the underside of the box lid. And a ribbon strap to hold the pen in place. Underneath that false bottom of the box is information about Parker, as well as Parker quick ink cartridges for the pen. And of course, we have the Parker Duofold International Fountain Pen.

Now, the Duofold pen comes in two sizes, the International being the smaller of the two sizes. This is the black version of the pen. You can see the top of the cap, the Parker logo with the spade there, and the gold ring at the top of the cap that transitions to the Parker arrow shaped clip. And at the bottom of the cap, two gold bands run all the way around, no engravings or printing on those bands. And at the bottom of the barrel of the pen, a small gold band. And it's actually engraved with Parker here in the resin of that black resin at the very bottom of the barrel.

Cap on the pen is threaded and unscrews, and can be posted on the pen. It's a pretty long pen. It's not too big in diameter. It's a little bit more of a narrow side, I would say, just under half an inch, probably, in the diameter.

It has a gold band between the section of the pen and the rest of the pen, and then there's also a gold band at the very end of the section.

You can see the two-tone nib on the pen with the Parker logo, and the feed on the back side of the nib.

Cartridge converter style pen, so to change the ink, you unscrew that section from the barrel of the pen. Included with the pen is a Parker ink converter, so it's all ready to go for bottled inks. Or like I showed earlier, it does come with the cartridges if you want to use cartridge inks as well.

Great pen, I really like the design of it. Get your Parker Duofold International Fountain Pen at PenChalet.com!
