I grew up revering Parker pens, but as I am in my 60's now, I can see things have changed...I bought this set because of the name, and the elegant brushed silver finish, and a very low price. I just assumed they would be easy to write with even though they were inexpensive. The pens are a heavy weight, and not balanced well, so writing is not comfortable with them. But the part I don't understand is the ink does not flow easily, or consistently! Sometimes there will be a gap where the ink skipped, and that is really frustrating. I am not sure what the problem is. I can find a pen at the drugstore for even less than this that at least does what it is supposed to do: write! I will not bother to return these, but I am disappointed at the quality.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Ink flow is nconsistent. Skips in places.
