Pen of the Day: Parker 51 Double Jewel


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!
