Please Use Pictures as Part of Description and ask any questions you have! Parker 61 “Legacy” Fountain Pen (nickel and silver Rainbow cap). Unlike any pen in this world or any other That was the slogan for the Parker advertising campaign launched in September 1956, in advance of the Christmas season, to introduce its newest and most revolutionary fountain pen. The pen was the striking new Parker 61. It was Parkers ambitious entry in the no-mess filling competition, sparked by the 1945 arrival of the ballpoint pen, that had seen Sheaffer introduce the Snorkel in 1952 and Waterman the cartridge-filling C/F in 1953. According to Parkers advertising, it took years of work by a research team of 50 people to develop the amazing 61, the first fountain pen that actually fills itself by itself, requiring no action from the user. The pen has no button, no lever, no plunger, no squeeze bar, and no cartridge or converter (these last two being several years in the future for Parker). To fill the 61, you just unscrew the barrel and immerse the back end of the pen (the cylindrical filler unit, which Parker called the capillary cell) into a bottle of ink. An internal reservoir (the capillary cell) contains a sheet of plastic that has been perforated, embossed with a 3-D pattern resembling safety tread, and rolled up The holes allow ink to ooze between the rolled-up layers, and the embossed pattern maintains space between the layers. In the center, running the entire length of the capillary cell, is the feed. To reduce the potential mess to a minimum, the capillary cell has on its outside surface a coating of DuPont Teflon® that is intended to shed ink as the user withdraws the pen from the ink bottle, making it almost unnecessary to wipe off any remaining ink.
