    You knew this was coming....

    Post pictures, stories, admiration, reviews of the best thing to come out of France since.....ever!

    Rules: no bashing, no 'joint' pictures (group shots of your pen collection with all those other, lesser pens)

    no, absolutely NO, none, zilch discussing replacing the ink with a fisher refill. this thread is for appreciating the stock parker jotter, as the chef cooked it.

    i love you all.

    Love the couple i've got, always one clipped in my shirt pockets.
    The first i had was a present many years ago (full stainless steel), the 2nd one bought for myself (notice: and this even if i'm not a lover of doubled items...)
    Never had a fail, still feeling not tired hand (the left) with long-time writings also.
    Replace the refill with other brands ? Nah, it's not for me.
    What can i say more ?
    I love my Jotters.

    I can't remember what separated us. I guess it was the Jotter maffia. As one should never be without a Jotter, I just ordered one three on ebay. A matte black (full black), silver, and gold one.

    Well..I was getting tired of using two hands to open my fisher bullet space pen and started looking for clickie pens. Didn't like the Fisher Cap-o-matic bc for some reason it kept getting unscrewed in my pocket. I found out about the parker jotter here and ordered it, and at the same time, ordered the Maxmadco. The Maxmadco was one beautiful piece of engineering! But it was too nice.

    The Parker was perfect. Classic looking, nice weight, love the arrow clip, and it took all kinds of refills. And at $10, def easier to replace than the Max.

    Small world! I just added to my Jotter collection (the first one was a jubilee edition) - got the 125th anniversary example recently:

    Great pens, I wish I still had mine. I think it still had about a mile and a half of ink left :)

    Didn't Parker produce a capped version of the Jotter?

    @rsitter: Great pics of a great pen!

    I have one of the half SS, half black plastic ones that I found in the gutter. It writes like a charm!

    Yeah, it looks like, from 1954-1969, there was a Parker 51 Jotter (source: parker51dotcom/gpage1.html4.html - the penultimate heading near the bottom of the page; apparently that url is not on the approved list of domains, so "dot" = ".")...

    I understand. I'm a shirt pocket carry too. Jotters go in slick and write the same way. More recently, I began to appreciate the Pentel Client pen (now, sadly discontinued) in my old cramped hands, and routinely replace the refill with a blue Parker refill. I bought a half dozen Clients while they were still on the rack. That ought to last me a while.

    Ordered the full stainless model at Amazon for just under $9 shipped. I really should avoid this forum.
