Comments about Parker 5th Mode PK IM in Deep Gunmetal:

I use this Parker when I am in the mood to use a fountain pen knowing that it is always ready to write. It is so easy to hold and the nib has the feel of an actual fountain pen. I absolutely love it!

A pen with style

Comments about Parker 5th Mode PK IM in Deep Gunmetal:

I decided to purchase this after using a friend's pen. Initially, I thought it was a fountain pen and had to look closely at the nib to see that it had a different tip. I enjoy writing with fountain pens, but in today's world they are not always practical. This Parker 5th Mode is as close to a fountain pen that I have found. The tip seems to be a type of fiber material but it does not bleed like the fiber pens from years ago. The tip also retains it's shape to provide clean lines of writing.It writes very smoothly and performs well for a "leftie" like me. The pen itself has some weight, which I like in a pen.
I placed 4 stars on value as the pen is in the higher end range for production pens. For someone who appreciates innovative and fine writing pens, this should not be much of a factor.
I really appreciate it when companies produce innovative products. Parker seems to have done this with the 5th Mode. I have not had it long enough to determine how long refills will last but their price does not seem outrageous.
Thanks to Parker for continuing to provide good products and to Levenger for carrying them. It you like a good writing and stylish pen, try this one out.

Parker 5th is phenomenal

Comments about Parker 5th Mode PK IM in Deep Gunmetal:

I love fountain pens, free flowing smooth writing pens, but I work for a living and fountain pens are just a bit too much effort for day to day use. The Parker fifth fits the bill. It is the smoothest writing "easy" pen I have ever used. Far better than any roller ball and rivals many of my fountain pens. I highly recommend it.

Brilliant Pen, But...

Comments about Parker 5th Mode PK IM in Deep Gunmetal:

Parker's execution of the Fifth Mode Pen series is nothing short of brilliant. The PK IM in Gunmetal is stunning, the finish is first class, but the function falls short of five stars, in that the Fifth Mode is little more than a fancy fiber-tip pen in a glamorous package. Even so, this pen would be a sure "keeper" but for the fact that the refills are expensive. It is interesting to note that the Fifth Mode refills appear to be made by the same company as Levenger's roller ball refills; the case size and markings are identical. However, where two roller ball refills cost $9.00, a single Fifth Mode refill costs $8.00. An internet search discloses that Levenger's price for the Fifth Mode refills cannot be bettered by anyone else. Therefore, I would recommend this pen to others, so long as they understand that its refills are somewhat pricey, and it is, in reality, a fiber-tip pen.
