With the presentation of the Mercury statue, the Akkerman Limited edition 1910-2010 Parker Duofold was also officially introduced. This collection is made in almost the same way as the Akkerman fountain pens of the first hour from the early 1930s. Then the successful Parker Duofold was the model for the fountain pens that Akkerman released under his own label. The first Akkerman pens were manufactured by the German company Osmia, after the model of the"streamlined Duofolds". History repeats itself, with the difference that this time Akkerman has found Parker himself willing to have a special series of Duofolds produced on the occasion of the 100th anniversary.
