Condition and information:

One of all-time best Senator pens, special pen in many ways, and in fact this is a pen made by the same factory which built the Pelikan 120 Type two pen. This pen was manufactured by the famous Merz & Krell Pen Company, which was famous for manufacturing parts for many pen companies including 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. They had many brands under their name, including Senator, Diplomat, the famous Melbi, and others. Some of the features of this pen are nearly identical to some Pelikan and Reform pens.

The pen is fitted with a 14K 585 solid gold, EF extra fine size nib. The nib is an amazing, marvelous writer, super smooth on the paper, with a full-flex. As soon as the nib touches the paper the tines come apart with little to no pressure, thus the written line changes thickness with every stroke. The writing is unique that varies from very fine to medium lines to very wide lines up to double broad BB even a 3B if pressed harder.

The pen is highly ergonomic, perfect length and thickness, very good grip and feel in the hand. One of the best features is the elongated ink window. This is one of a few pens where the user can see the status of the ink even if the pen is closed as the cap doesn't cover the ink window all the way. This ink window will change color to whatever ink is being used as it's a clear color.
The piston is smooth, with only 2 moving parts made out of stiff rubber, which always makes for a perfect fit within the body and will never leak. The piston and in fact the whole body is identical to the Pelikan type II - Merz & Krell pen.
A superb Senator pen by the German Merz & Krell Pen Company, amazing writing experience, extremely well built meant to last and endure hard work for years, yet with great appeal.

Mint condition, minimal to no signs of use, no scratches, cracks, or any functional or cosmetic issues.
