Pen of the Day: Parker 51 Double Jewel

DSC_7630

Parker 51 Cedar Blue with fine nib. Because of its sentimental value, I’ve been using this 51 continuously since it was restored.  But with each fill I’ve experimented with a different ink.  This time it’s filled with J. Herbin Bleu Nuit.

One thought on “Pen of the Day: Parker 51 Double Jewel

  1. This was beautiful – the thought, the words, all of it! And the little surprise of how it starts out as a regular Pen Of The Day post and then becomes so much more 🙂

    And bonus for me: Herbin Bleu Nuit has been my standard writing ink for many years now, so it was nice to see it. I think I like it better in this pen; mine is a pretty wet M nib, and I think it maybe gets too dark. I will try it with a finer nib soon!
