Parker Duofold Streamline

The world – or our world, at least – is full of wonderful pens and this is one of the most wonderful. The Duofolds made Parker and were so hugely influential that for many years most pens bore some resemblance to them.

This one is the Duofold Streamline Short. It’s longer than the Junior but shorter than the Standard Duofold. When I think of Duofolds of the 20s and 30s, though they came in many colours it’s this bright orange and black that I see in my mind’s eye.

This size of Duofold fits my hand very well, where the Standard model might just be a little on the large side. This one was made in Canada.
