Markant, meaning “striking ” or “distinctive ” in English, was an East German pen company. They live up to their name with this pen, having produced a bold and compelling piece with a timeless classic and elegant design. This pen was made in the 1970s and it was a direct response to Montblanc ’s Noblesse Oblique series, being nearly identical in size, shape and form factor, even the nib is strikingly similar in form. The pen features a unique, very deep brushed finish, very pronounced texture, one can feel it in the hand. The build quality is amazing, made out of thick aluminum, anodized and silver plated. Very heavy and long with an superb feel and grip in the hand. The nib is a very smooth stainless steel F fine size, smooth and soft, flexing but producing a constant line, it does not feel as a stiff steel nib, quite rare feature, a very smooth writer. The nib is quite smooth, and even though it is made out of steel, it flexes for a pleasingly smooth feel and produces consistently beautiful writing. One other rarely seen feature is that the nib is inclined at a slight angle towards the paper. This is made possible by the rubber feed which can bend and follow the curvature of the nib. This provides for a unusual but very nice writing experience. The pen is a cartridge filler, it uses standard international cartridges; either standard or double size but it can be also used with standard converter. Very easy to open and to clean and maintain pen, trouble free. It will always shine as no hand oli, dust or other dirt stays on the deep brushed finish. The pen is in absolute mint condition, no scratches or dings, perfectly preserved piece of East German pen manufacturing history.
