Senator pens were produced by Merz and Krell, the company produced nibs for other pen companies and also sold pens under the Diplomat brand. Senator pens are very well made, affordable writing instruments. The President was a flagship pen, a full sized chunky pen, as girthy as a Mont Blanc 149, but for a shade of the price tag you get a lovely modern piston filler with a high performing broad stub nib.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings. The pen has previously been inked but is in near perfect condition
The nib is a lovely smooth 14k gold broad stub nib on an ebonite feed which keeps up well and gives a reliable ink flow.
Check out wonderful range of Organics Studio inks, a dark shade would suit this pen very well.
