Cheap and cheerful - a classic,

This review is from: Parker Vector Blue Medium Nib Fountain Pen (Blister Pack) (Office Product)
I've got several of these Vector fountain pens in different colours, and I really like them. I use them with an ink converter rather than cartridges and Waterman ink (it comes in a gorgeous range of colours), and the pen works beautifully. (I'm a teacher, so like to use a variety of colours when I'm marking). There isn't much flex in the nib as you might get with some more expensive pens, but the ink flows well and I can write smoothly. I find my writing looks much better when I use a fountain pen. The body of these pens is plastic but it is quite robust. The cap clips into place, and sits on the end of the pen when in use to prevent you from losing it. The grip section is quite slim and metal. I actually prefer a slimmer grip area because I've got small hands. This pen would be ideal for a younger user of a fountain pen because it is slim and light, and these qualities mean that it comfortable to use for extended writing sessions.
This pen isn't the most stylish looking Parker - they do some beauties but you'd need to pay a lot more for them than this. This one though looks fine, and is a real workhorse. A cheap and cheerful classic! Am so pleased Parker continue to make this model.
