Parker has been at the forefront of fountain pen innovation for the last 125 years. George Safford Parker reinvented the fountain pen after being dismayed by the unreliability of the products he sold. In 1888 he founded the Parker Pen Company, paving the way for a long line of breakthrough technologies and design innovations. In 1894 Parker patented the Lucky Curve, a pen with a pioneering anti-leak feed system which revolutionized the market. The story of Parker continues today as they introduce more beautiful pens to the world.
