Condition and information:
In the rivalry of the East and West technology, it was usually the East that looked to the west before making their own products. But this was not always the case. Garant was one of the few east German companies that made some amazing writing instruments, and usually with very original design. Garant was well known East Germany pen company, to rival the most western brands. It was also one of the biggest pen manufacturers in East Germany and one of the most innovative. They made some astonishing writing instruments with a know-how that even surpassed other western German brands. The pen offered here is their flagship pen, the biggest of them all, carrying the name "ALKOR". The pen is oversize, very thick, long and heavy. It is greatly reinforced pen, rarely seen, with 3 metal crack preventing rings on the cap and even one on the turning knob. The build quality is visible and palpable, it's simply a superior writing instrument. It takes an enormous volume of ink, so once filled it will write for a long time. Due to its unusual thickness, it has a very good grip and writing balance, posted or not posted. The pen is made out of shiny black resin, the signature material of Montblanc. It features a very unique cap covered turning knob. The reason behind this capped tuning knob is that the user cannot accidentally turn the turning knob, which will result in ink leakage, so this feature is quite useful. The nib is enormous, similar to Montblanc's 146, it's stainless steel gold plated EF size, but unusually for a steel nib, it has semi to full flexibility, thus if pressed gently while writing it will write F, M, B and even BB lines. It's very smooth on the paper and precise too. Another unusual feature to the pen are the enormous ink windows, fully transparent. Unlike other tainted ink windows, here the user will be able to see the exact color of the ink being used. The pen is in absolute mint condition, with minimal to no signs of use, fully functional ready to be used. Truly rare and wonderful Garant East Germany pen, one of the best they ever made. Genuine Leather pouch is included.
