One of the rarest and best Reform sets we ever offered for sale, a unique set in a rarely seen Reform presentation box. The set consists of the famous triangular Reform fountain pen 4383 and the triangular ballpoint pen 605 in a rare burgundy red color. The unique design feature is that both pens end on each side in a triangular form giving the 4383 and 605 one of the most beautiful appeal. Made our of high quality plastic resin, the signature Montblanc material, which has a high shine and gloss but its also scratch resistant. The design and shape of the pen follows the style at the time, a very similar pen to Montblanc Mote Rosa pens, Senator and other pens. Both pens have excellent grip, weight, feel in the hand. The fountain pen at almost 140mm, posted at 165mm, it has a great balance and handling. The nib extraordinary 14K 585 nib, EF size, very smooth on the paper but with a full flexibility, rarely seen on newer pens today. In such a nib the tines of the nib split apart as soon as it touches the paper, with little to no pressure. This nib changes thickness of the lines with every stroke. Writing with such a nib is a pure joy, as from an EF grade (extra fine) varies to medium lines to very wide double broad BB line and even wider, mimicking all nib sizes, it feels like writing with a paint brush. The feed is large, ebonite with large ink canal to feed the wet nib. Piston takes good amount of ink and can be used for a long time once its filled. Silicone cork ensures no ink leakage. There are number of transparent ink windows around the barrel, that will clearly represent the ink level. All trimmings are thick gold plate that won't wear off.
The set also includes the model 605 triangular ballpoint pen. This is one of the most recognizable Reform ballpoint pens for its ergonomic shape. This ballpoint pen form factor was copied to almost all plastic one-use ballpoint pens we see today. This is a true high-quality vintage ballpoint pen, unlike the new ballpoint pens. It has a perfect grip due to the special grip section, it somehow feels right in the hand. Contributing to this feel is the pen's weight, considerably heavier then most ballpoints due to the solid steel mechanism on the top of the pen as well as the metal refill. Having the steel mechanism on the top of the pen, gives the pen a great balance. This pen features a very special and precise push-button mechanism. This mechanism features a small "ball bearing" guided mechanism, where a small steel ball is guiding the push knob. This makes for a very precise push button with a distinct "click" sound.
Extremely well build pens, meant to last and endure hard work for decades, yet with great appeal and amazing performance, some of the best fountain pen writing. The set it in NOS, New Old Stock, never used condition, still with their original model stickers.
