Every now and then, I come across a pen that is of particular value combined with a unique capability. The flexible Marlen Aleph pen shown above is such a pen. It is a piston filler with a nib made from fine harmonic steel that allows a beautiful calligraphic script. The harmonic steel nib guarantees a good flow for a controlled flex making a line of 1.0 to 1.5 millimeters. To control the flex of the nib, the pen presents two lateral cuts to accomplish a functional task without overshadowing the aesthetic component. The body of the pen is made of mother-of-pearl resin in lava grey or black refined with a full stainless steel barrel fully inspired to the old flat tops, without any kind of ornaments (rings and more) to divide the line. The pen is 143 mm of length; 111 mm for the body and 62 mm for the cap. The total weight is 30.9 grams (complete and refilled) of which 10.4 grams for the cap and 20.5 for the body. These characteristics lead to a balance allowing the pen to fit perfectly with the hand cavity.
The filler system used is a piston filler in which the barrel end has as its main aim the protection of the mechanism from accidental or clunky actions.
The harmonic steel nib guarantees a good flow for a controlled flex making a line of 1 to 1.5 millimeters. To limit the necessary strength for the flexion of the nib, the pen presents two lateral cuts to accomplish a functional task without the overshadow of the aesthetic component.
