Friends of mine are doing some fostering for a few of my kittens and I was presented with this brand new Parker VP fountain pen and pencil. This set has never been used and has sat in the box since the early 60s. I put some blue ink in the pen and what a surprise. Smooth writing all the way. This fountain pen has an adjustable point that almost looks like a little ruler so you can just click it to the right or left. I like it straight up so I leave it alone. The 0.9mm pencil works fine. What a great gift. Add one to your fountain pen collection.
