Parker Jotter Fountain Pen, Rollerball, Ball-Point Pens Review

Updated on March 16, 2011

Parker Jotter

Jotter is Vector's brother: not only both titles end similarly, their purpose and design have a lot in common as well. The latter opts for a modernist, futuristic-industrialized body, the former uses the same materials – resin and stainless steel – but features a more traditional design derived from classic cigar-shaped fountain pens.

Both are outfitted with the same type of nib (two sizes); both are causal, everyday writing instruments, and represent Parker's unique understanding of this important niche. That's one of the reasons why Parker pens continue to be bestsellers across the globe.

Jotter's orthodox contours bring it closer to other brand collections: Premier and especially Frontier. Frontier relies on the same materials, yet carries a classic fan-out nib; the arrow logo presents another important aesthetic difference – a realistic replication in one, it becomes a stylization (approaching Vector) in the other. The nib exhibits a thinly embossed slit, and a the word “Parker” right at the center of the metallic piece.

Jotter versatility doesn't end in modest architecture and basic design: colors, especially blue and red, render the collection suitable for a wider range of customers, and especially the ladies. A colored resin fountain pen equipped with an elongated cap and creates an aura of elegance and confidence that's both subtle and conspicuous.


While standard line arrives in all four writing systems, the premium segment is only available in ball-point pen.

At the end side it appears like a constantly posted fountain pen – and Parker made sure to trim this component in a recognizable way, employing patterns similar to the ones use in Premier, separate Sonnet models, and further, to stainless steel Montblanc Meisterstuck.

Inks and Refills

Inks (all Parker trademark Quink) for fountain pens include black, blue, red, green, pink, turquoise, and washable versions of the black and blue.

Refills for roller-balls and ball-point pens include black, blue and red; mechanical pencil offers 0.5mm and 0.7mm leads.
