Can’t seem to get enough of them. Found this beaut on craigslist a couple days ago. I won’t claim that I got it for a song, but I feel pretty good about the price.
A Parker no. 134 from 1928. Apparently called the “Big Bear”! Here’s a flyer (gotta love the internet):
This one seems to be in incredible shape. I still think I’m going to pull it apart to clean everything up with a wire wheel and re-grease the innards though. That way it will be good for another 87 years.
Pretty nice! Also, the mini anvil on the back makes this thing just that much cooler.
I’m sure this won’t be the last one I buy…
