When he started making pens George Parker had a simple yet ambitious aim - to make a better pen. And that single, simple vision has powered the Parker Pen Company ever since. From the first patented 'Lucky Curve' system, which dramatically reduced the leakage that was a hazard of early fountain pens, right up to the latest Duofold Esparto collection, Parker’s ongoing dynamic is one of quality without compromise. The Parker Pen Company has built a brand dedicated to passion for perfection, and driven by bold innovation. Their philosophy is to put customers and craftsmanship first - and it’s made Parker the most recognized Fine Writing pen brand in the world. Even today, every Parker pen is carefully checked at every stage of its manufacture. That’s a clear signal of their commitment to quality – and of their continuing belief in the vision George Parker held all those years ago.
