The Verdict

These Newhaven pens aren't well known to US collectors (except for die-hard Parker maniacs); this works out in your favor when you're shopping around on e-bay or other venues where you can often buy them direct from the UK or its commonwealth members for some pretty good prices.

The Newhaven points on these pens are exceptionally smooth and well-made, and the simple, durable aerometric filler is a big plus. I find the solid colors to be very attractive (I'm particularly partial to the burgundy), and the gold-filled trim is of high quality and harmonizes well with the rest of the pen.
