I purchased the pen to improve my writing - using a fountain pen can be a great way to achieve this. With this aim in mind I would definitely recommend the product.

Positives:

- Feels nice to write with (very smooth, no scratching)
- Produces nice letters - has improved the look of my writing
- Smooth feeling means you can write for long periods with this pen no problem!

Negatives:
- INK!! It tears through ink like there's no tomorrow! I would suggest purchasing a piston cartridge and using ink bottles...

Overall a good choice for someone with a modest budget, who simply wants a small improvement in their handwriting and a nice pen to write with.

Good buy.

This fountain pen has a good weight and is well-bananced while writing. The ink flow is even but a little on the heavy side, and the pen does have a tendency to propel ink if any sudden movements are made. It looks attractive and hasn't leaked in my pocket, in or out of the included (polyester?) zip-case. Both the pen and case were nicer than I expected from the photos.

The nib is surprisingly weak. Recently the pen rolled off of a 3ft high table onto carpet with no lid on, and the nib was bent at 90 degrees at the tip. Needle-nose pliers restored some function, and I can hardly complain at the price - but I'd be leaning toward three stars at the RRP. I'm making a point of the weak nib because Parker's website claims that the frontier's nib is "famously hard-wearing"...

Overall, worth it.

This is a vary nice pen to write with. A little thicker that what I expected but at the same time deceivingly light. Writes vary smoothly. I purchased the Converter Pull System Functional Piston Fill and Parker Quink Ink Bottle Black Ref S0170650 to go with it. the piston refill is vary easy to use and the ink is of a good quality.

At half-price it was well worth the money spent.

I love my parker pen, I bought it to be used only really for special purposes but have found myself constantly using it. It is easy to grip and use and is not like the other fountain pens I've written with. When I bought this pen I thought it would've been heavier in weight, however it is very light but still does not feel cheap. I think this was a very good buy and would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Being old school I love Fountain Pens, and will only ever write with one, This pen is beautiful, it is well balanced in your hand, feels great to the touch and the action and fluid movement on the paper is second to none. The nib feels like silk on the paper.
A fantastic pen, you can not go wrong with this one.

Parker Frontier GT Fountain Pen Stainless Steel with Gold-plated 23k Nib and 14k Trim.

Ah Parker!! The Prince of pens. The GT Fountain Pen from Parker is, indeed, a gem of a pen.
In stainless steel with a 14k trim and 23k nib, it really is a joy. Parker pens have always had a certain mystique and history about them. One is reminded of the time one found a very old orange Centennial Duofold Parker fountain pen in a junk shop and grabbed it for a quid - that's a pound to the uninitiated. It was the same type as the one owned by General Douglas MacArthur ( who knows..it may have been his) and, if memory serves, with which he signed the surrender documents with Japan aboard the U.S.S. Missouri on September 2, 1945. There's history for you! But enough of history. The Parker Frontier GT Fountain Pen writes beautifully and precisely. It comes with a nice little pouch in which to store it when not in use. Well, you're not going to write with it in the pouch...Are you? Really? Oh....Right. Anyway. Beautiful pen. Add it to your collection.

A bargain for a piece of history at a little over a tenner. That's ten pounds to the uninit...Ah forget it.

What more can I write....?

Buy it. Beautiful pen.

End of.
