I'm still trying to get a good black white finish. I've been sidelined by preparations to sell the farm. Too many heirs that don't live here to enjoy it.

The following is about as far as I have gotten.

You're getting there Harry. Looks like a few more iterations are needed.

Which is more correct for a Parker, the black or brown finish.

BTW, these look pretty good Harry.

I would be happy with Harry's results. I hope he will let us know when he is taking on some work.
