The Parker 180 Fountain Pen was the first to offer a double sided nib, turn it one way and you get a Medium line, turn it over and you get an Extra Fine line!
The pens caught the public imagination and they were very successful in the early 1980's - a time when fountain pens were distinctly out of favour. They didn't last long however and the redesigned Parker Classic with a more conventional nib took its place in the mid 1980's.
The original 180's are now quite rare and collectable and the price has soared over recent years.
This is the 180 Flighter, the rarest of the family and was made in the USA around 1980, The pen takes standard Parker cartridges or it can be used with an optional converter to use ink from a bottle.
The pen is in near mint condition. It writes very smoothly with both a Medium and Extra Fine line. It has been fully serviced and is ready to go.
