Parker Urban Premium Fountain Pen- Golden Pearl
The Parker Urban Premium features a very unique shape. It is a modern design that doesn’t stray too far from Parker’s legacy.
The metal cap and body of this pen are covered in a pattern made up of thin lines. This beautifully references the stacked celluloid finish on Parker’s iconic Vacumatic pens, produced from 1932 until 1953.
The Urban Premium sits well in the hand, whether it’s posted or not. The cap snaps closed, making it easy to quickly open and close.
The clip is firm, and features Parker’s famous arrow design, which would look great in a shirt pocket.
The Medium steel nib on the pen is very smooth, and has a bit of give, which provides some great line variation, especially with slightly faster writing.
The Golden Pearl finish is quite subdued, and it brings personality to the pen without being too loud. The gold clip, centre band, and end caps accent the pen perfectly.
The Parker Urban Premium is shipped in a stunning gift box, commemorating Parker’s 125th anniversary. This box also contains a Parker notebook and a Parker Quink Blue cartridge.
The Parker IM Premium is compatible with the Parker Converter (sold separately), which would open up some great ink options. Black ink would be a great match, and would be suitable for formal use. Another great option would be Diamine Sepia.
