Don't ask us why this Parker Limited Edition is called Senior. It is for sure not a pen only for the Senior.

This new limited edition is another demostration from Parker that they had perfected their skill of making fine resin. This version was made to look like raden.
This duofold is a remake of the older one in the 40s. 

Unlike the other brands, which the pen boxes are getting bigger. This new Parker Duofold Limited Edition has a smaller box as compare to it pre-descendent. However, the made of the box is just as good as it pre-descendent.

S.T. Dupont Samurai Limited Edition

The samurai, also know as bushi), were Japanese warriors who were the members of the military class. They uses a many type of weapons, such as bows and arrows, spears and guns, but their most famous weapon and their symbol was the sword.

Samurai were a elite class of warriors who were supposed to lead their lives according to the ethic code of bushido ("the way of the warrior").

Strongly Confucian in nature, Bushido stressed concepts such as loyalty to one's master, self discipline and respectful, ethical behavior.

During the Edo Period, the sumurao stood at the top of the official hierarchy of social castes, followed by the farmers, artisans and merchants.

There were hierarchies within each caste. All samurai were forced to live in castle towns and received income from their lords in form of rice. Masterless samurai were called ronin and caused minor troubles.
Year 1615, Osaka Castle falled. The Tokugawa's last potential rival was eliminated. Japan enjoyed relative peace for about 250 years.

As such, the roles and responsiblity of sumurai decreases, and the importance of martial skills declined. Many of the samurai became bureaucrats, teachers or artists.

In 1868, Japan's feudal era came to an end, and the samurai class was abolished.

S.T. Dupont’s Samurai Limited Edition Neo-Classique Limited Edition pays homage to the greatness of samurai spirit by taking inspiration from the splendour and sophistication of their katana swords.
