I am writing this blog entry with my Pentel pen. In the last blog entry-The Enemy of Eyes, I mentioned that I have a story about my Parker pen. So, I am now writing about it with my Pentel pen.
Why I don't use the Parker pen? It is because I would like to get some more writing experience on both of them so that I can compare them. Last time, I use the Parker to write The Enemy of Eyes
. This time, I use the Pentel.
Initially, I would like to talk about the Pentel pen. This pen is heavier than the Parker one. You may think of a heavy pen which isn't suitable to write for a long time, your hand would get tired easily. Actually, it isn't that heavy, just relatively heavier than Parker one. Also, it is well balanced so that when I am holding the Pentel pen, it lies on my hand naturally. I don't need to use any power to hold it. I just use light power to hold it with my thumb, index and middle fingers to control the tip, I can write with it smoothly.
Although the Parker pen is nice, it is too light for me. I cannot control it as well as the Pentel in order to write beautiful words fast.
I think I should talk about the Parker pen now. I am now using the Parker to write the rest of this blog entry. When I had just bought the Parker pen. I found that it didn't work. I tried to write something on paper causally, I couldn't see any ink on the paper. I scratched it on the paper for few times, I saw some ink eventually. At that moment, I thought "The pen will be Okay if I use it more, the ink will come out fluidly." I also bought a Parker pen refill for that pen.
Unfortunately, every time I take the Parker pen out, write the first alphabet of a word, it doesn't work. I have to scratch it on paper for few times before I can start writing. "It should be the problem about the original refill, it will be fine if I change the refill to the new one." I thought. I change the refill, then, tried to write something and suffered exactly the same problem. I am very disappointed!
When I was studying at secondary school, Parker pens were very welcomed by students. The price wasn't expensive, nice appearance and write smoothly. I also had one Parker at the time. Thus, I had confidence in the name of Parker. Who can predict that its quality of pens drop much.
I bought the Parker pen for catching back my teenage memory. I really didn't expect that it would be a nightmare to destroy my impression on Parker.
I didn't want throw the pen into rubbish bin. Of course, I paid for HK$130 to buy it. What could I do? When I bought the Pentel pen, I also bought a refill. I took a look those refills, compared both of them if they are in the same design. Luckily, they are. The only difference is different brand printed on different refill. So, I put the Pentel refill into the Parker pen. They fit each other perfectly! After that, the Parker pen works very well.
The Parker produces good pens but bad refills. I will not buy Parker's refill anymore. I prefer to use Pentel's instead.
