Condition and information:
Extremely rare and superbly build Senator pen set, which bares many special nuances for the era in which was made and by the company that made it. Conceived in the mid 70s and launched later that decade, these pens were meant to celebrate the greatest European nation collaboration at the time, building the supersonic passenger jet the Concord (or the Concorde as the French would call it). It seems there was a race between all European manufacturers to make a pen that would bare the Concord jet name. There were Waterman's, Parkers, Pelikans, Reforms and almost everyone else. This pen was made in West Germany, few years before the fall of the Berlin wall and the reunification, and what's more, it bares a Reform nib and this is not a replacement nib it is the original one. We have seen such Reform nibs installed originally on many Senator fountain pens, and sometimes even vice-versa. Something like this is almost unimaginable these days, where two brands won't mind sharing a single product but it was common in those days. The pens are made out of high grade steel, and are nearly mirror brilliant polished chrome finished, with gold plated trimmings. These are extremely reliable Senator pens, super easy to clean, maintain and use, where the gospel of the design was "form follows function and function dictates all quality requirements", these are nearly indestructible pens! The fountain pen is very convenient to use, i can use standard or double size ink cartridges, or any standard piston converter, however it also comes with its original one. The pens are very heavy and well balanced, providing great writing experience and feel in the hand, they feel solid and strong. Fountain pen features a gold plated Extra fine nib with Iridium tip. Iridium is one of the strongest materials, so the tip won't wear off even after decades of use. The nib writes with a thin precise constant EF line, perfect for precise work or small letters notebook writing where precision and mess/ink free is needed. However it does not feel stiff as some steel nibs; even though the tines do not come apart, they are still flexing, so it feels nice and soft. There's the ballpoint pen which is a nice smooth and precise twist upper body on/off mechanism and comes with a new refill. The pens are in absolute mint never used condition, a time capsule of another era when writing mattered as much as the Concord once did.
