Condition and information:
The pen offered here is the high-end classic Senator pen from the 1980's made out of black resin, the signature material of Montblanc. The black resin is a special plastic that has much higher gloss then regular plastic, it is also much more difficult to scratch as its more rigid and has a higher strength then regular plastic. This pen is made in the late 1980's by the Senator pen company, previously known as the Merz and Krell company. This pen has similar piston filling mechanism to the Pelikan 120 type II pen, developed by Merz and Krell, which is extremely reliable and easy to use with only 2 moving parts. The pen features a smooth M size stainless steel nib, which is a constant but great writer, producing same thickness line, great for long and demanding work where one needs not to worry about the nib, which is very tough and almost impossible to damage. This nib is also good for notebook writing as will not make a ink mess. The ink window is elongated, with clear blue transparent color that will easily indicate the ink level. All metal parts, the clip and ring are gold plated. It is a superbly balanced pen, with a classic form factor, feels right in the hand and always performs reliably. The pen is in absolute mint condition, no signs of use, no cracks or scratches. A perfect and stunning everyday pen.
About the Senator pen company:
Senator was known as the Merz and Krell company. The famous Merz & Krell Pen Company was manufacturing parts for many pen companies including Montblanc, Pelikan, Reform and others. This company even manufactured entire pen lines for Pelikan such as the 120 model type II and the rare 400NN Merz & Krell model. This company had many brands under its name, including Senator, Diplomat, the famous Melbi and others. Senator was their main brand in the 60's and early 70's. Some of the features of this pen will later be implemented on many other pen models to follow as well as some Pelikan pens, such as the 2 part piston system, which is extremely reliable and easy to use. The Senator Merz & Krell Pen Company is one of the oldest in Europe, with almost 100 years of tradition. The Senator pen company is also renowned for many breakthroughs and inventions in the pen business. Today the company is highly restructured and oriented to the entrance class pen market, but they still manufacture some one of the best pens in the world.
