From what I've been told this pen is about th size of a Pelikan M120. I myself have a M200, M600 and can tell you, quality-wise, this pen closely parallels them and at only $5 !!
But, I must give J.J. Blanche his due:
He sells these at $5 US in the For sale section. I have not seen anyone on the Internet selling these at this price. I have bought Reforms at more than 3X his price!!
Also J.J. offers tweaking services for these pens, which I would recommend so they can reach their full potential.
I did not elect to have him "tweak" mine, but I do alot of restoration work, so I wanted to do it myself. If J.J's "tuning" is anything like his service I'm sure it's top-notch!
J.J. even gives you a brief history of the Reform Compnay and tips for minor adjustment with your order. Impeccable work, J.J.
Also, I own many high end pens, but I will tell you, like we know in this hobby, "cheap doesn't mean poor quality". These pens are great.
Reform made great pens and should not be forgotten among fountain pen users. I have several and they are great writers!
Frankly, if you don't invest in one (or six, gifts anyone?), you are truly missing out.
I am not affiliated with J.J. but he is AWESOME to deal with!
