Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this very rare Parker WoodPen Guaiac Wood Fountain Pen, which comes with a modern Parker presentation box. The pen was only inked to test and is presented in overall fantastic condition – with the section removed you can turn the metal ring, but it has no effect on use and doesn’t move with the barrel screwed in place. It has the serial number 116.
So what is this rare creation? Well… released in 1980, Parker in Germany created a limited edition range of pens, which were crafted from eight different wood finishes.
Initially there were meant to be 2000 of each, but due to objections from Parker in the US, production was halted and as such it was never clear how many had actually been made at that stage.
Apart from their wooden finish, the most obvious design feature is the huge stylised Parker clip. In our opinion, these Woodpens win the prize for arguably the most unusual, but captivating, Parker design ever!
The nib is a 14k oblique broad and its very similar to the one fitted to the Parker 105. It’s a cartridge / converter and has a modern converter included.
The important details are as follows…
Box: Parker (modern)
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
