Parker re-launches the Parker 51, maintaining the hallmarks of the original while leveraging new technical advancements, expertise, and craftsmanship to be fit for use in the modern world. The name Parker 51 was no coincidence — Parker had named all their models until then, but had come to the conclusion that if a model was given a name, this name detracted from the name of the brand.
A number would therefore suffice better for a new pen, also because a number has the same meaning in all languages. A trial run of the newly developed pen was put out in 1939, which was the 51st year of the Parker Pen Company's existence. The pen was therefore given the type number "51" - according to the official account of the factory.
The modern Parker 51 fountain pen is identical in silhouette to the original vintage Parker 51 fountain pen. The difference lies in the shape of the nib, the length of the clip and closing system. The nib is not tube shaped but has a traditional pen blade — of course this nib is completely hidden in the front part of the pen. This construction ensures that the pen always starts easily and does not dry quickly. Furthermore, also the length of the clip is slightly longer than the original. The new Parker 51 also sports a screw cap.
Parker has been a leader in design and production of the best pens in the world for over a century. These pens are not only fine writing instruments, they also never let you down. They give status to every generation — the reason for Parker pens' success as a style icon.
