Powerhouse of Innovation
Without innovation, luxury falters. Since 1888, Parker has thrived through innovation, challenging the status quo in pursuit of the perfect pen. At a time when pen longevity was dubious and ink leakage prevalent, George Safford Parker set out to change the face of writing. From the revolutionary creation of the Lucky Curve fountain pen to the best-selling pen of the 20th Century—the Parker 51—to Parker’s quick-drying QuinkFlow technology, the talented teams of craftsmen and pen experts at Parker have dedicated 125 years to creating ranges of new, hybrid, sophisticated fine writing instruments, designed to delight you for a lifetime.
The Parker Ingenuity Collection
Imagine if your pen intelligently adapted to your unique writing style. The Parker Ingenuity Collection of fine writing pens with 5th technology does just that, providing smooth-gliding ink that flows silkily onto the page with each stroke of your hand and adjusts—mid stroke—to cater to your specific handwriting techniques. Combining the luxurious style of a fountain pen with the simplicity of a rollerball pen, 5th technology pens utilize a flexible tip that interacts with a metal hood to make sure each mark is sharp, precise and fluid. A fiber tip and bevy of rapid-drying ink colors create smudge-free penmanship that allows for a flawless transition between each line. A revolutionary design combined with quality materials and high-end finishes ensures that you have a writing tool that’s luxury-oriented yet affordable.
- 5th technology delivers elegant precision
- Slim and large designs accommodate various handholds
- Variety of elegant body finishes and accenting finishes
- High level of interchangeability with 6 refill colors

Luxuriously and innovatively constructed, 5th technology advances the art of fine writing instruments into an entirely new and novel territory that bridges extravagance with affordability.
With 6 vibrant ink colors to choose from, you can write vividly without leaving delicate sheets of paper scratched and torn. Highly interchangeable ink refills flow smoothly from the nib and dry rapidly for impeccable documentation.

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.
That's where this pen comes in. It's a sealed refill that works fine in planes. It doesn't smear, and the ink doesn't suddenly stop. It also writes exceptionally smoothly coming out of the box. In other words, it's sort of that perfect every day pen you can use when you are not writing leisurely (which is most of the time for me).
The biggest knock on this pen is that they put a fake nib on it, behind which the ink flows. I actually think this is fine. It looks mostly like a fountain pen, but it doesn't have all the hassles. You can decided whether this is worth using a a "poser" pen. For most people, I think it's perfect, as most people would never care to use a fountain pen.
Bottom line: very smooth, easy to use, carry, and travel with every day pen.
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.
