This was the first pen I ever bought, about 30 yrs ago. I've written many thousands of pages with it, and it has served me every day in all that time. Despite the fact I now have a large collection of pens, this one remains my favourite. It writes smoothly, is well balanced and quite heavy (brass body with a lacquered finish)

The pen could tell some stories.. It has been used by Queen Elizabeth II, Margaret Thatcher and by Paul McCartney to sign visitor books, and has been used in some of the most interesting offices in the western world..

Unfortunately I forget what the model is (obviously a Parker and French made) And despite searching I've never seen another one on the net, so I suspect it is probably quite rare..

I realise this might be boring to some simply because it is modern, but I promise to post some of my vintage pens too ;)

    This is one of the pens I'll never sell, it is a fixture at the end of my hand, and I never leave home without it..
    It would seem odd to anyone who's not a pen addict, but this pen has a personality and I'd be lost without it.
    It's value therefore doesn't concern me. I just wish I could remember what the model was, and know something about whether I bought something unusual without realising it all those years ago.
    I have so many pens these days, and all different, but this one and a Meisterstuck 146 which my wife gave me about 20 years ago are without any doubt my companions for life.
