5.0 out of 5 stars Parker Ingenuity pen 25 Dec 2011
Pen was sent to me from France very quickly. Excellent product, I'm really delighted with it. Totally different feel to conventional fountain pens.

5.0 out of 5 stars The embodiment of smooth writing 17 Dec 2011
This pen is a breakthrough in writing technology. Although it is a felt tip, it is by far the smoothest one I have ever used over the past 35 years. The smoothness of the writing is simply unbelievable and has to be really experienced before any fair comment can be made on this pen. The pen is NOT a fountain pen and there is no intention to make it appear as such, despite the nib-like tip, which is essentially just 'for show'. The pen is a little on the expensive side, but this is because Parker is marketing it as a luxury pen, which perhaps is a mistake, as those who expensive pens tend to be a fussy, fastidious bunch. The weight of the pen is solid and this larger version is obviously aimed at men, while the shorter versions, with more varied colours, are much more targeted for women. If you love smooth writing and have enjoyed writing with fineliners before, you will absolutely love this pen, on the other hand, if you are expecting a new type of fountain pen then you will be disappointed. A previous review called this pen a 'Sharpie' - nothing could be further from the truth as the performance of the pen is light years better than any disposable felt tipped pen I have ever come across.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
I had tried this pen in a local store and it seemed to be ideal after a few quick scribbles. However, since I received my own and have used it extensively I realise it does not stay "wet" enough in use. This inhibits the flow of writing and I am very disappointed with the product

2.0 out of 5 stars A Sharpie in fountain pen clothing... 27 Nov 2011
By Dr. Philip J. Kinsler - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have to admit to being a pen junkie. I've got a number of good fountain pens, and have always liked Parker products. The Parker Duofold remains my favorite fountain pen. I looked forward to trying this because it seemed to combine fountain pen like writing with no-leak and no-need-to cap-quickly convenience. The pen has some positives. It's nice looking, seems well made, is nicely balanced. However, the writing is NOT fountain-pen like. It is much more like writing with a Sharpie and has the feel of porous point device. In a fountain pen, one can see a difference between the thickness of strokes, as in a script lower case f or g--lines are thicker where you go around the bottom of the loop and thinner on the upstroke, which gives the writing a nice look. I can't get that effect here. I directly compared this pen with an ultra-fine Sharpie. I'm quite convinced I could not tell the difference with a blindfold. The refill is configured to look like a fountain pen and it does have some flex to it. According to the Parker website the refill 'interacts' with the fountain-pen like 'hood.' I am unconvinced this really happens. So, I wound up paying 160 bucks for a good looking Sharpie. Maybe the dress up is worth it for you, I'm feeling buyer's regret.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Pen is a Total Rip-off 26 July 2012
By Allen F. Mertz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have used fountain pens exclusively since 1957, when I was a seventh-grade student. I bought this Parker 5th Generation pen in all good faith that I was getting something new. What a rip-off. Total rip-off. Do not buy this, under any circumstances. Ink cartridges for this pen cost me $8 apiece. On April 27th I installed a new ink cartridge in this pen. This cartridge cost me $8. Since that date, I signed exactly 30 computer-printed checks and endorsed 10 of them since they were payable to me. I was unable to sign my 31st check since this $8 ink cartridge was dry. As for me, I will go back to using one of my traditional ink pens. Once all of my remaining horribly expensive ink cartridges are gone, I will throw my $190 Parker pen into the garbage and charge this up to having endured a terrible experience. Sadly, this might well not happened for several months since I have nine of these ink cartridges on hand which I bought for a total of $72 not including those other cartridges which went dry. Incidentally, I have seen those infamous ink cartridges offered for sale at Amazon.com for as much as $10 each. If Amazon.com had allowed me to award this pen a total of zero stars, that's exactly what it is worth. I should mention that my signature contains seven letters and my endorsement (including all letters and my first name) contains 11 characters. Seems to me that eight dollars is a mighty high price to pay for putting 330 cursive letters on a computer-generated expense check.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really quite poor, at a ridiculous price. 9 Feb 2012
By M. Gattus - Published on Amazon.com
I recently received one of these as a gift, and being the sort of person who doesn't like to toss away or sell gifts I have it sitting in it's presentation box on my desk.

As the other reviewer stated, this *IS NOT* a fountain pen by any stretch of the imagination. It's some sort of "porous" tip that writes sort of like a fine point sharpie, except it's much less comfortable in my hand than a sharpie would be.

If you'd like an excellent fountain pen at a low price (low being a relative term, fountain pens have a sweet spot in the $150-$250 range, and another in the $2000-$2500 range) I would recommend the following, which I own currently, or have owned in the past.

If you'd like a Parker simply because you like the brand and the feel of their pens in your hand, the model 75 is quite nice, I've owned mine for a fair while and I enjoy writing with it.

My preference would be a pen by Pelikan - their model m250 can be had for around $125 if you search a bit, and their m400, which is essentially upgraded in every way can be had for $150-$160, though finding one at the prices I listed could take a fair bit of looking, perhaps purchasing a display model from a fine writing instrument shop or you could find one very gently used on either eBay or Amazon marketplace.

Another fountain pen of note, which I respect a lot, is the Waterford Kilbarry. I personally still use mine a great deal, it ran around $120 when I bought it a few years back, and it's still in rotation with my Deltas, Montblancs and Nakayas. A $120 pen standing up to very high end offerings at fifteen to twenty times it's price is highly impressive to me, and if you decide to begin a collection of pens the Waterford is something you can carry without worry and it looks like a pen priced in the $800-$1000 range.

Best of luck in finding what you're looking for, I hope this review helps you to find a pen that will make you genuinely happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant felt-tip pen 10 Aug 2012
By Rocket Riter - Published on Amazon.com
Parker's PR people did a lousy job communicating what's special about this pen, which is apparent when you read many of these reviews. People are shocked when they realize that it's not a fountain pen (it's not advertised as a fountain pen) and feel gypped when they find out that it's "only" a felt-tip. When I bought it, even the pen salesman (in a high-quality pen store) remarked to me that he didn't understand why Parker put a "fake fountain pen tip" on a felt-tip pen. But I've worked with this pen for several weeks and can share some answers.

1) Yes, this is a felt-tip and not a fountain pen. It appears to use a high-quality cartridge that does not dry out when the cap is left off and that does not push in when you press down hard, both failings of cheaper felt-tips.

2) The "fake metal fountain pen point" is there for a reason. When you write with it, that metal hood forces you to always orient the same side of the felt-tip toward the paper. This is what enables the pen to learn (in other words, wear down to) your preferred writing angle, which customizes the stroke. When you first start to write, the tip feels scratchy, but within a few sentences that personalized wear angle sets in and the pen becomes exceptionally smooth--sort of the "Blackwing" of felt-tips.

3) Because the tip develops a flat-spot personalized to your handwriting, it quickly takes on an oval shape. This is reflected on the paper as variation between thick and thin in your pen strokes. As a result, your penmanship is more expressive than with a rollerball or standard felt-tip (but less expressive than with a fountain pen). This is more noticeable with the medium than with the fine point.

So what you get is a felt-tip pen that is smoother, longer-lasting, and more expressive to write with than its predecessors. It's not a fake fountain pen. It's a terrific felt-tip that's a pleasure to write with.

2.0 out of 5 stars The answer to a question no one asked 24 Jan 2012
By Chambolle - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Did you ever ask the question "why doesn't someone make a pen that looks like a fountain pen, but really isn't a fountain pen"? I surely never did, and doubt anyone else has done so, but Parker has answered the question anyway. Parker's answer is called the "Ingenuity 5th Technology Mode Pen," a moniker as weighty as the pen itself.

Having received this pen from the Vine program, I had no idea what it might cost, but given its heft and pretension to serious "pen-ness," I had an idea it might well be a couple hundred - and so it appears to be at Parker's retail price.

If, as I am, you are a fountain pen collector always on the lookout for a new and fascinating fountain pen to put in the shirt pocket rotation, you will not be interested in this one at all - because as I explain below, although it goes to some lengths to look like a fountain pen, this isn't a fountain pen at all! For those who are not serious about fountain pens but want a "serious" and expensive looking pen, or those who really enjoy using ceramic or roller or composition tipped pens, it can be somewhat recommended, although its weight and size may be off-putting to anyone who is used to carrying a roller ball or ballpoint pen around in a shirt or coat pocket every day. However, if you are among those who firmly believe that a writing instrument should be a cheap, disposable item, and take offense at the idea that anyone would spend more than a few bucks on a pen, no matter how finely made it may be, or whether it is a piston filled fountain pen or rollerball, modern or vintage, large production or limited edition, you no doubt made up your mind when you saw the price -- before you even scrolled down to look at this review. The design, workmanship and function of this particular offering will mean nothing to you one way or the other. I can save you a lot of time. If the price offends you, you have no need to read further; and the rest of us really will derive no benefit from hearing your opinion of folks who do think it makes sense to invest a couple of hundred dollars or more in a fine fountain pen - which this item, incidentally, is not.

As for the pen, it is an unusually heavy writing instrument, one you are not too likely to clip in your pocket on a daily basis. It is reasonably well balanced, and without the cap posted, it is not at all uncomfortable in the hand. Right out of the box, it has a plastic, 'dummy refill' inside, which has a fine, pointed plastic tip that protrudes from a metal 'hood' that is fashioned in the form of a dummy fountain pen nib. The dummy refill also is fitted with what looks like the serrated comb feed of a fountain pen - for reasons I cannot fathom other than to go one step further with the ersatz fountain pen theme. It took me a moment to grasp that this was not a fountain pen at all, but a fine line, composition tip with a ballpoint/rollerball style refill.

The real, ink-filled refill, with a working tip, is hidden in the bottom of the small presentation box in which the Ingenuity is packaged. I unscrewed the section and barrel of the pen, inserted the working refill, and was yet again amazed to discover this is indeed the intent and design - a fountain pen that isn't, a fountain pen nib and feed that isn't, with a tiny composition tip peeking out from under the pseudo-nib and pseudo-feed. I kept reading the scant instructions - which are really just pictorials for various Ingenuity models - thinking I must be missing something, that there must be a way to make this work as a fountain pen and fill it with a converter or a cartridge, if not from an inkwell. I could be totally off the mark, but the answer appears to be what you see is all there is - a fine composition tip ink refill, like any other ball, roller, ceramic/composition tip pen.

Out of the box, it writes consistently and smoothly - but of course, without the feel, the flex or the character of the line created by a decent fountain pen nib. I can create a similar tip and a similar line with a nicely sharpened, good quality graphite pencil from any one of a number of reputable manufacturers, like Faber Castell or Rhodia, and do so when I am not in the mood to use one of my fountain pens. After a week or so, I have noticed the pen has begun to 'skip,' which is a bit of a concern. If that is all the use one can get out of a refill, then the cost of operation is a bit ridiculous. If the tip simply does not flow ink particularly well, that is also a concern. For all the pseudo-fountain pen frou frou, heft and finish -- not to mention the price -- it should at least function well as a felt tip pen!

Allowing for the fact that others may appreciate composition tip pens more than I do, I give it two stars. However, I would not personally buy one for myself or as a gift. In my view, the marketing and design folks at Parker have not come up with a winner.
