The Parker Duofold Demi was first introduced in 1962 as part of the Duofold Aerometric range. The range consisted of the the Slimfold with the No.5 nib, the Junior with the larger No.10 nib, the standard Duofold and the Demi with the No.25 nib, the Senior with the No.35 nib and, finally, the prestigious Maxima, fitted with the huge No.50 nib. The range was produced right through to the 1970's and they were extremely popular because of their reliability and quality.
This particular pen is a Duofold Demi dating from around 1965. The Demi is slightly shorter than the standard Duofold but retains the same diameter. Many people found it better balanced than the longer standard pen. It is finished in Burgundy with gold filled trim to the clip and cap ring. It is fitted with a super smooth Medium nib which writes nicely. The pen uses the reliable aerometric filler (for filling with ink from a bottle.) The pen is in good condition with minor marks and scratches commensurate with use. The imprint on the barrel is worn but legible.
