For only the 5th time in history, a new writing technology has been invented. Fountain pens were first, ballpoints and mechanical pencils next, rollerball in the 1970s, and now the 5th Technology from Parker. Take a close look, a fountain pen hood over an innovative ink delivery system, attached to a metal tube cartridge. All the sophistication of a fountain pen but with the smooth glide of a rollerball. A point that adjusts to your own writing style after the first few words. No more dried ink from an uncapped pen. No more smudges. No more leaks from temperature or pressure changes. No more ink accidents on your hands, clothes or desk.Enjoy the flexible writing experience from a hard-wearing tip that gives a soft writing feel. Parker 5th refills are available in black or blue ink, with a fine or a medium point, and medium point in peacock, burgundy and olive.
