Pilot Parallel Fountain Pen - 6.0mm, Blue

Major breakthrough in calligraphy pen design. Unique parallel plate structure achieves a more beautiful and sharper handwriting than existing calligraphy pens. Each set comes with a Parallel pen, one black and one red ink cartridge, a converter to flush the pen, and a nib cleaner. Mixable colors - using two Pilot Parallel Pens, each with different color cartridges, produce beautifully gradated lettering by touching the nibs together. To use with bottled fountain pen ink, the Pilot Con-50 converter works best (sold separately).

Pilot Parallel Fountain Pen - 6.0mm, Blue is rated 4.8095 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My at-home highlighter pen I keep this pen for my highlighting needs exclusively, this is the pen I keep at home for doing readings and keeping around the house. The steel nib is great (though a bit wide for my needs) and the eyedropper conversion means I almost never have to worry about ink supply. This pen is always leaving my pen cup to be used as a book marker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks weird, writes fine! At 6 mm, these nibs are broad indeed - just what I was looking for. There's no way anyone will be able to use these pens for everyday writing (at least not the 6 mm version), but they sure are nice for calligraphy. I do believe that when it comes to calligraphy, dip pens rule, but for beginners, these make excellent pens: the lack of a need to dip allows the user to focus fully on the writing. The ink-mixing option is a nice bonus and can give some interesting results. Also, the shape of these pens is fairly ergonomic, making them pleasant to hold for extended periods of time. Don't forget to add a converter if you want to use bottled ink, because the supplied converter is for cleaning purposes only and will hold NO ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best purchases I ever made! Was so delighted with the performance of this parallel pen that I immediately ordered two additional sizes. I volunteer at an elementary school where I often letter signs or posters. I resorted to markers, because I was not about to carry ink and dip pens in my purse. I shall never purchase calligraphy markers again! Pilot has made wide widths portable at a bargain price with this great cartridge pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design Just got this pen today. Already had the 1.8mm pen for a year or so but decided to get more serious in my fiddling around with calligraphy and get the other three pens in the series. These are great, nice and wet, easy to get perfectly square lines (not so easy for me to do great calligraphy, but these help a lot). Not sure if I will use cartridges but I may hack a pen sac onto the tip of an empty cartridge to get a huge volume "converter" to use with these pens. A lot of room for the sac in that long barrel. Now if I can only discipline my time to practice more with them! Goulet packed my order perfectly, shipped quickly, wonderful team at Goulet Pens. I will not buy anywhere else unless I need something Goulet does not carry or cannot get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll need two... This is a brilliant calligraphy pen (all the Parallel Plate Pens are) - smooth and no scratchiness, you can even get away with some up strokes. Fantastic. You'll want a second PPP to ink up with highlighter ink - 5.7mm wide line is perfect for highlighting, team it with one of those big bottles of Noodler's highlighter and you'll be set for life insofar as highlighting is concerned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6.0mm Parallel I purchased all four parallel pens, and they have all been great. It come with a nice set of calligraphy fonts to learn from and I have received many compliments on my calligraphy from friends and family. Best of all, these pens are just flat out FUN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So... Much... Nib! I am very happy with this pen. The cleaning converter does work as an ink cartridge converter which I was a bit hesitant about at first. Though the barrel feels cheap, I am happy that it weighs nothing. This is a great calligraphy pen indeed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I am not big into calligraphy yet, but I got this to test the waters, and because I wanted a BIG nib. The nib is huge and an absolute joy to use. This will guzzle ink, but it is very fun to use.
