Parker’s production is well-known almost for everybody. That means that Parker is one of the most recognizable brands alongside Coca-Cola and Microsoft. Parker embodies style, quality, elegance and ‘luxury’ status.
Parker has recently released a new line of ink pens that is described as “innovative new writing system” that will “revolutionize the look and feel of putting pen to paper.” Parker Ingenuity collection combines smart design and the absence of any impracticality that is often associated with the traditional device.
Parker Ingenuity Collection is based on brand’s new 5th ink technology which includes fluid, uninterruptable flow of smudge-resistant ink, a flexible tip that can easily adapt to a customer’s handwriting style, and, finally, the possibility to insert refill that won’t leak on you at high altitudes.
The ‘Ingenuity’ range is based on two categories, ‘Daring’ and ‘Classic.’ The ‘Daring Collection’ definitely proves its name: flourishes of traditional fountain pens coincide with innovative technology; every single pen has the typical emblems of writing tools such as the engraved metallic cap and nib, textured-weave rubber grips or chrome trims.
While the slim models of pens are designed with a less ambitious nod to the early 20th century, the larger pens in the ‘Daring Collection’ are quite different. The ‘Classic’ range provides a more typical look and feel; the lacquered finish appears refined.
According to the Parker, the ‘Ingenuity’ is “an entry-level pen for those who want to try out a fine writing instrument like a fountain pen, but haven’t yet”. Well, Parker is not of those brands that provide only status, without satisfaction from using it.
“I have always been fond of Parker Pens. I have also used other brands like Cross and local brands but I would always go back to Parker. I’ve always adored the classic designs of Parker pens. They are nice to look at but they are not too showy either. I’ve always found Parker pens to be durable,” said a happy customer on www.reviewstream.com.
Here is one more positive review from Dave M. on www.thefountainpennetwork.com: “My experience with the Parker was quite satisfactory. The writing is extremely smooth. There is some variability in line thickness depending on the pressure that is applied.”
“It does not have the same range as a fountain pen, but it is more expressive than a ballpoint or rollerball. Very little pressure was required to put down a consistent line with no skipping. I have no experience with any felt tip pens or any other tip. I felt the pen was well balanced and writing was effortless.”
He continued: “Ink flow was excellent and there was no smearing; although I am right handed. I wrote a few words and tried to smear the ink; no smearing. I will use this pen on a daily basis. My model is the all rubber version which I found to be very comfortable.”
“I’m not thrilled about the cost of the refill; however it is very easy to change. It’s the same process as a ballpoint or rollerball. Lastly, this is not a fountain pen; however it is a different instrument in comparison to a ballpoint or rollerball,” he added.
One happy owner of a Parker pen said: “My Parker pens come with memories.” So, it seems like Parker can also suggest you something new. Let us know what you think of winning or owning a pen from the Parker Ingenuity Collection. We’ll glad to hear from you.
