There is even a matte black carbon fiber model for those in a durable frame of mind. The gold trimmed model covers the top with 14k plating and is then intricately etched with a herringbone pattern. The 14k rose gold plated top has a deeply etched grid pattern. Any Parker-style refill will fit and the choices are endless from numerous manufacturers in three point sizes, ink types and up to twelve colors, all shown below.
