The first Parker Duofold was launched in 1921. It was a revolutionary pen with a different design. It was notable for its large size and high purchase price. The Parker Duofold became an immediate success that other pen manufacturers quickly picked up on. The entire Parker collection was restyled at the beginning of 2016, and a year later this new collection is now also available in the Netherlands. In addition to new resin Parker Duofold "Classic" versions, a number of heavier "Prestige" Duofold variants have now been released, the base of these pens is all metal with a high-quality finish. A striking feature is the broadly designed cap rim, which is optically constructed from three rings, a recognizable historical Parker design element, with "Parker" engraved in the middle ring.
