I got to thinking about this while I was placing my Parker Jotter pen in my sleeve pocket on my uniform shirt. The Jotter has been around since 1954, and it’s still my favorite pen. I can buy a four-pack on Amazon for $21.58 with any color and style of refill I want for minimal cost.
I have a few very nice, expensive pens Mrs Tex bought for me, but I always grab the Parker pen. It’s like some of those animals that are basically prehistoric but function so well that no evolution is needed (I’m thinking of alligators and snakes).
I’d also nominate the model 1911 handgun for a place in the same category, although there are a lot of them with changes from the original design, some minor and some major. What else fits in this category? (And I get it put up a 1911 pic).
