I remember when I first heard the Parker Jotter was being outsourced. I collected a few in case the product changed. The product did change...It got even better! I have found these recent Jotters to be more versatile than their predecessors, and I have two pen and pencil sets of this line. Both of them have been versatile, tough, and all around excellent products. I also have a few of the steel pens. I have gathered more of these both in the office and at home since the outsourcing. True, this old American classic pen has acquired a British accent, but it has gone from being a very good pen to being a great pen. British Parker QC is excellent. I wish more companies took this much care in their products.
I advise anyone to buy at least one of these and perhaps more. This and the Pilot Knight are all an office needs. (Of course the pencils are also excellent. I prefer my Staedtler 9505 pencils, but the jotter pencils are a close second.)

I went to high school during the Johnson administration (Lyndon, not Andrew!) and a Parker T-Ball Jotter was my first "good pen". It had a great "click" and a great refill. Also, when you opened the pen to change the refill (we wrote a lot back then) you saw finely molded threads on the plastic barrel and beautifully machined brass threads on the top. When you looked on the back, you saw "Made in the USA" and knew you owned the best pen America had. It was a gem and I treasured it. The refills were always great. You had blue or black ink that never blobbed and a choice of fine or medium points (I took fine) feeding from a gigantic ink supply. One glitch was the clip. It was a force fit onto the top and once it decided to pop off (it did happen if you misused it) it was nearly impossible to force back on by hand.

Today, Parker's Jotters show a real lack of fine build-quality that is endemic of our times. The threads are sloppy looking. Rolled, not machined. That's on the barrel. The top has a cheap-looking plastic insert - Oh the humanity!. The good "click" is still there, not a bit muted by all of the plastic parts. And on the back, the made in the USA is long gone. Made in the UK Ltd. And while the pens still work as intended, underneath I know that there is cheap plastic where machined brass and steel should be.

The refills still rock, especially the Parker Gel refills. They are amazing and I use them in many of the pens I own that take a Parker-style refill. Parker used to make a refill called "Golden Touch" that was vastly superior to the basic refill. But they stopped making them (dunno why, but I guess it was the cost).

Having used these for more than a decade, I think there is no better value that a Parker Jotter ball point pen. I have purchased these regularly, and not one has been sub standard. My current pen has seen at least 6 refills and it is still going strong. I am careless, and with these I can afford to lose them once in a while.

If you like fine writing instruments and are on a tight budget, get yourself a Parker Jotter.

For all the thousands of pens available this pen is by far the best value for the dollar. Simple, elegant, inexpensive and no pen cap to lose. My recommendation: buy more than one and give the extra pens to the people who sit next to you at the office. They will thank you.

My expensive pens were always getting stolen at the office, but I wanted a good pen at an attractive price. The Parker pen 'Jotter' fit the bill.

These pens work very well and look great. They last a long time, and are refillable.

I'm sold on these pens, and they are solid values.

I have used the Parker pen for years. I bought several ink refills, but the ink lasts a long time, so I still have some refills. Sometimes I swap out black ink for blue ink for various reasons. I carry the pen in my pants pocket. Sometimes it is right side up, sometimes upside down. I never had a problem with leaking ink. I had a hole in the pocket of some old pants and lost the pen. I bought a different pen at an office supply store. It leaked ink in my pocket. I missed my Parker pen so I ordered another one here at Amazon. Free shipping even without ordering more than $25. You can't beat that! However, THE PEN IS NOT BLACK. I didn't pay attention to "colors may vary" and received a red pen (still black ink). If the color of the pen matters, find another seller here at Amazon that you can choose the color. You may have to pay a dollar more though. I have been using the Parker pen for more than 20 years and have never had a problem with it.

I have lots of pens, but my favorite is the Parker Jotter. I have pens that cost far more - Mont Blanc, Cross, Scheaffer, Pelikan and others. Some are more beautiful and some have neat engravings, or gold trim. My Jotters are the smoothest writing and most reliable of the bunch.

These are classic!

Pros:
+ Reliable
+ Durable
+ Easy to find refills (although you won't need it, due to lasting a long time)
+ Quality ball point ink
+ Ball point rotates every click, to ensure even wear on the tip
+ Improved from earlier models, especially the clicking mechanism.
+ Comes in pink!

Cons:
- Gel refills don't last very long.

In 1995, I got my first pens: a Parker Jotter ballpoint, and Parker Vector rollerball. This was in Hong Kong. The Vector ran out of ink quickly (I was a 7th grade student), so I stopped using them.I used my jotter for years as a student in school and then in college. I abused this pen as a student - using it to pry open staples, jammed locker doors, and more. I remember quickly bending the clip and subsequently breaking it off.

Now, I continue to buy them, for myself and as gifts. The styling is classic, and they are incredibly functional. Parker's jotters are designed so that the tip of the ball point rotates 90 degrees each click, thus ensuring that the tip gets even wear. These days, refills are easy to find, and you can get gel refills or Fisher Space Pen refills.

Also, I'm not sure when, but the clicking mechanism has been revamped. I think in the early 2000's. My previous jotter from Hong Kong stopped clicking reliably. It was also slimmer than the type sold now, and the clip is slimmer and more stream lined.

The jotter has a special place in my life. It was my first gift to my wife while we were dating. I bought her the pink one.
