Condition and information:
Unfortunately this pen is one of the last Reform fountain pens made in the late 80s, soon before the company closed down in the early 1990s. The Reform company was founded in Heidelberg Germany in the early 1930s and was at one time one of the largest pen manufacturers in Europe. This is one of the very last, if not the last, fountain pen models made by Reform in late 1980s and early 1990s. The pen features the same characteristics featured in its very successful predecessors such as the models 4383, 4282, 4000 and many other. However this pen its taken to another level of quality made to compete with Montblanc's and Pelikan fountain pens. The pen has a similar design form factor, even a two tone nib, and it is also nearly identical in size. Unlike other resin pens, this is made entirely out of metal, where the black resin are basically the trims. It is fully gold plated but finished with extravagant, beuaituful Barleycorn guilloche pattern which gives it some stunning looks.
The pen can use any standard international cartridge, or a piston converter, thus a very simple and easy pen to use on daily basis. Overall the pen is one of a superb build quality that will perform flawlessly and trouble-free for decades. One of the last pens from the great German Reform pen company, a piece of history and a great writing instrument.
