If you were at school in Germany in the 1960s, the chances are you would have practiced handwriting with a pen similar to this. These are beautifully simple 'school' pens, with a simple piston filling mechanism and a fine steel nib, which writes with a touch of feedback and a fine line. The pens have been imported as old stock from a former German stationery shop and have never been inked.
This is not a high end pen, but is nonetheless lovely to look at, and has a nice fine nib, a great option for lovers of piston fillers, easy to clean (the feed is friction fit) and it has a timeless sleek bullet shape design.
Please note the seals will need to be primed before inking the pen. Fill the pen with warm water first and leave it for 10 minutes to soak before emptying and filling with your ink of choice.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings. The pens show minor signs of handling and micro scratching, but are unused and never inked.
