The Pilot Parallel Pen is a remarkable and durable tool that offers crisp edges, sharp hairlines and a totally reliable, smooth flow of ink for beginners and seasoned lettering artists.
In a typical dip or cartridge pen, ink travels through one or more slits in the nib and feeds across the writing edge. Skipping (non-delivery of the ink) can occur, particularly in larger pens. The parallel pen has a totally different construction. Ink flows between two layers of metal lying on top of each other, delivering ink to the entire writing edge without fail.
This set includes one each of the following parallel pen sizes: 1.5mm, 2.4mm, 3.8mm, and 6.0mm. Each pen comes with one black ink cartridge, one red ink cartridge, one pen cleaner pipette, one nib cleaner, and an instruction booklet. Also includes a 12-pack multicolored pack of cartridges and Brenda Broadbent's Parallel Pen Wizardry, a gorgeous book filled with tips & tricks, writing & drawing possibilities, and a gallery of examples.
