    My First Wood 50 Caliber Parker

    Dressed up in a piece of "Eyeless" Birdseye Maple casing with a Walnut dyed piece of Maple for a nib.
    Need to refine the projectile nib profile a bit
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and applied 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Gloss Wipe-On-Poly using my "Dipping Method".

    Very nice, Les. Is it any harder to use the Parker refill compared to the Cross?

    Nice pens. I like the fact that you can use Parker Gel innerds. Your wood looks alive. How about some dirty gray ebony for the missile on one some time?

    How do you retract the point?

    Enjoy,

    Jim,

    This is a double twist Parker, so you just twist the nib either clockwise or anti-clockwise to extend or retract the refill.

    Vaughn,

    They both work the same way by twisting the nib.
    Some people prefer the Parker compared to the Cross.
