The Parker 50 fountain pen was first released in 1978 and was made available new until 1982. The pen is also known as the Falcon and it was a redesign on the Parker T1 fountain pen which was an all-titanium pen that proved too costly to produce. In the case of the 50 the design material is steel and the sleek design in combination with the integrated nib and good balance made it a fountain pen that looks good and is a pleasure to use.

The Falcon was initially released in the brushed steel Flighter design that has also been so popularly successful with many other Parker models such as the 45 and 50. Complementing the stainless steel body was an electroplated 22k gold clip. The nib sizes that were available were fine, medium and broad and according to the original catalogue the nib is dubbed a unitary nib.
The design of the 50 replicates the successful look of previous models including the aforementioned T1 and the 45. Talking about the Flighter design, the brushed metal body and cap is finished with a matte black section and the integrated nib. In short the 50 is a very attractive looking fountain pen.
Later versions of the Falcon were released in subsequent years to the original 1979 release and the Flighter design was joined by the 50B which has a Matte Black finish and then the Signet, which is a gold finish. A matte brown version of the Falcon was also released just before the pen was discontinued which has resulted in it being quite a rare version of the pen.
When they were first released the Parker 50 fountain pens were available for only $25 in the Flighter version and the price for the gold Signet was over $100.
