From the Manufacturer

The Parker Ingenuity Pen

An innovative new writing system is set to revolutionize the look and feel of putting pen to paper. Parker aims to gain a new generation's interest in fine writing by creating a one-of-a kind pen that is as beautiful to use as it is to look at. The innovation consists of a cutting-edge refill tip and an engraved metallic hood that, together, constitute the newest technology in pens.

Through extensive research into consumers' needs and combining consumers' favorite features of each of the four current writing modes--the classic beauty of the fountain pen, the smoothness and precision of the rollerball, the ease and longevity of the ball point, and the smudge-free, fluid experience of the porous point--researchers have developed the 5th technology. Utilizing this revolutionary and cutting-edge technology, Parker has created an innovative arsenal of pens dubbed the Parker Ingenuity collection.

Advanced 5th Technology

The Parker Ingenuity collection exclusively uses the 5th technology as their newest innovative mode of writing, the benefits of which include:

  • A smart glide tip that adjusts to your personal writing style after just a few words
  • Ink designed to produce a vivid, clear script and prevent hand-smudging
  • A simple, clean refill process with a refill tip designed to maximize cap-off time and eliminate ink leaks induced by pressure, impact and temperature
Convenient Refill System

  • Smart Glide tip rapidly adjusts to personal writing style
  • Simple, clean refill process

Cutting-edge refill tip accommodates both light- and heavy-handed writers.
Responds to Your Handwriting Style
  • Refill flexes with pressure from your writing style and has support from the metal tip/hood
  • Consistent writing experience
    • Heavy-handed writers don't have the tip "push in" and no ink leaks
    • Light-handed writers won't experience the lack of fluidity in ink delivery
Gift box
Comes in a premium Parker gift box.

From the pioneering innovations of the 5th technology exclusive to the elegant Parker Ingenuity collection emerges a form of pen that combines modern thinking with fine design. The emerging generation won't have to choose between fashion and functionality--now they can have both.

Great for gift-giving, the pen comes presented in a premium Parker gift box, which measures approximately 6.9 by 1.5 by 3.3 inches. One black 5th technology refill cartridge also comes included. The Parker Ingenuity pen carries a two-year limited warranty.

Color Name: Black Laquer with Gold TrimSize Name: Large Verified Purchase
I have to admit to being a pen junkie. I've got a number of good fountain pens, and have always liked Parker products. The Parker Duofold remains my favorite fountain pen. I looked forward to trying this because it seemed to combine fountain pen like writing with no-leak and no-need-to cap-quickly convenience. The pen has some positives. It's nice looking, seems well made, is nicely balanced. However, the writing is NOT fountain-pen like. It is much more like writing with a Sharpie and has the feel of porous point device. In a fountain pen, one can see a difference between the thickness of strokes, as in a script lower case f or g--lines are thicker where you go around the bottom of the loop and thinner on the upstroke, which gives the writing a nice look. I can't get that effect here. I directly compared this pen with an ultra-fine Sharpie. I'm quite convinced I could not tell the difference with a blindfold. The refill is configured to look like a fountain pen and it does have some flex to it. According to the Parker website the refill 'interacts' with the fountain-pen like 'hood.' I am unconvinced this really happens. So, I wound up paying 160 bucks for a good looking Sharpie. Maybe the dress up is worth it for you, I'm feeling buyer's regret.

Color Name: Black Laquer with Chrome TrimSize Name: Small
I recently received one of these as a gift, and being the sort of person who doesn't like to toss away or sell gifts I have it sitting in it's presentation box on my desk.

As the other reviewer stated, this *IS NOT* a fountain pen by any stretch of the imagination. It's some sort of "porous" tip that writes sort of like a fine point sharpie, except it's much less comfortable in my hand than a sharpie would be.

If you'd like an excellent fountain pen at a low price (low being a relative term, fountain pens have a sweet spot in the $150-$250 range, and another in the $2000-$2500 range) I would recommend the following, which I own currently, or have owned in the past.

If you'd like a Parker simply because you like the brand and the feel of their pens in your hand, the model 75 is quite nice, I've owned mine for a fair while and I enjoy writing with it.

My preference would be a pen by Pelikan - their model m250 can be had for around $125 if you search a bit, and their m400, which is essentially upgraded in every way can be had for $150-$160, though finding one at the prices I listed could take a fair bit of looking, perhaps purchasing a display model from a fine writing instrument shop or you could find one very gently used on either eBay or Amazon marketplace.

Another fountain pen of note, which I respect a lot, is the Waterford Kilbarry. I personally still use mine a great deal, it ran around $120 when I bought it a few years back, and it's still in rotation with my Deltas, Montblancs and Nakayas. A $120 pen standing up to very high end offerings at fifteen to twenty times it's price is highly impressive to me, and if you decide to begin a collection of pens the Waterford is something you can carry without worry and it looks like a pen priced in the $800-$1000 range.

Best of luck in finding what you're looking for, I hope this review helps you to find a pen that will make you genuinely happy.

Color Name: Black Rubber with Metal Chrome TrimSize Name: Large
Parker's PR people did a lousy job communicating what's special about this pen, which is apparent when you read many of these reviews. People are shocked when they realize that it's not a fountain pen (it's not advertised as a fountain pen) and feel gypped when they find out that it's "only" a felt-tip. When I bought it, even the pen salesman (in a high-quality pen store) remarked to me that he didn't understand why Parker put a "fake fountain pen tip" on a felt-tip pen. But I've worked with this pen for several weeks and can share some answers.

1) Yes, this is a felt-tip and not a fountain pen. It appears to use a high-quality cartridge that does not dry out when the cap is left off and that does not push in when you press down hard, both failings of cheaper felt-tips.

2) The "fake metal fountain pen point" is there for a reason. When you write with it, that metal hood forces you to always orient the same side of the felt-tip toward the paper. This is what enables the pen to learn (in other words, wear down to) your preferred writing angle, which customizes the stroke. When you first start to write, the tip feels scratchy, but within a few sentences that personalized wear angle sets in and the pen becomes exceptionally smooth--sort of the "Blackwing" of felt-tips.

3) Because the tip develops a flat-spot personalized to your handwriting, it quickly takes on an oval shape. This is reflected on the paper as variation between thick and thin in your pen strokes. As a result, your penmanship is more expressive than with a rollerball or standard felt-tip (but less expressive than with a fountain pen). This is more noticeable with the medium than with the fine point.

So what you get is a felt-tip pen that is smoother, longer-lasting, and more expressive to write with than its predecessors. It's not a fake fountain pen. It's a terrific felt-tip that's a pleasure to write with.

Color Name: Black Rubber with Chrome TrimSize Name: Large Verified Purchase
I have used fountain pens exclusively since 1957, when I was a seventh-grade student. I bought this Parker 5th Generation pen in all good faith that I was getting something new. What a rip-off. Total rip-off. Do not buy this, under any circumstances. Ink cartridges for this pen cost me $8 apiece. On April 27th I installed a new ink cartridge in this pen. This cartridge cost me $8. Since that date, I signed exactly 30 computer-printed checks and endorsed 10 of them since they were payable to me. I was unable to sign my 31st check since this $8 ink cartridge was dry. As for me, I will go back to using one of my traditional ink pens. Once all of my remaining horribly expensive ink cartridges are gone, I will throw my $190 Parker pen into the garbage and charge this up to having endured a terrible experience. Sadly, this might well not happened for several months since I have nine of these ink cartridges on hand which I bought for a total of $72 not including those other cartridges which went dry. Incidentally, I have seen those infamous ink cartridges offered for sale at Amazon.com for as much as $10 each. If Amazon.com had allowed me to award this pen a total of zero stars, that's exactly what it is worth. I should mention that my signature contains seven letters and my endorsement (including all letters and my first name) contains 11 characters. Seems to me that eight dollars is a mighty high price to pay for putting 330 cursive letters on a computer-generated expense check.
