Condition and information:
Reform 4000, one of the all time best Reform pens, the flagship Reform pen, was the direct answer to Pelikan's 400NN model, aimed in the high class fountain pen market. The pen is strikingly similar design and shape as the Pelikan 400NN, even in size, both are 132/133mm, which brings to question that in that time these two companies were collaborating, most probably via the Merz & Krell company who manufactured parts and nibs for both Reform and Pelikan. This Reform pen is their take on a higher class pen, and its one of the most rare and best Reform pens. The nib is larger than usual, extremely good writer, very smooth on the paper, EF size, but with a full flexibility. The tines just split apart as soon as the nib touches the paper. This sort of nib produces one of the best writing one could hope to achieve with a fountain pen, it can mimic any nib size because it changes thickness of the lines with a small pressure while writing. The writing is unique that varies from very thin lines to very wide lines, it can express your emotions while writing. The nib fed by an original ebonite feeder providing a wet and constant flow needed for such a nib. A perfect high gloss highest grade plastic body and cap. The pen is highly ergonomic, perfect length and thickness, very good grip and feel in the hand. Extremely well build, meant to last and endure hard work for years, yet with great appeal. Very beautiful clear see through ink windows. Piston is smooth with a silicone cork which always makes for a perfect fit within the body and will never leak. The pen is in absolute mint condition with minimal to no signs of use. Amazing pen in every respect, a true Reform legend.
