Nib and Feed 
 
The unique 14C gold flat arrowed nib has metal and resin feeds above and below the nib flats. The nib tip is essentially ball ended, but ground with different widths above and below. By rotating the pen through 180 degrees (as the pen name suggests) the nib will write medium on one side and fine on the other. Very smooth writer, but not a great deal of flex.

Hepworth Comment
 
If there is one Parker pen that could get nicked by some overzealous airport security officer, it's probably the Parker "180". It's mean, it's lean, and it's a writing machine. It has a nib which could be used as a lethal weapon.
