Hi I recently bought this pen from ebay. It cost 400GBP at an auction!
Initially I thought this was a bargain. Now I have doubts, whether this is real or fake.
3 things basically that concern me:
1) Feels extremely light. What is the weight of this pen?
2) The tip of the barrel is "very black" slightly different to the remaining of the barrel. reminds me some of the cheap counterfeits you see of metal starwalker pens you see on eBay. I have tried to capture that on the photos.
3) The Instructions booklet has a lot of Chinese instructions and certificate is right at the end.
Now having said that I tried to compare this pen with the few available images on the net and it is not far off the nib barrel cap and so on. It has a serial number next to clip and the words Germany metal and Pix under the clip (but nowadays many fake do so). Also when you put it in bright light you can see the red tinge of the resin. Also like my rest of the MB FP when you place a magnet next to the nib it repels it.
Can someone help me solve my dilemma. Ideally someone who knows or has this pen. What's the length of this pen with and without the cap.
Also what was the original price of this pen?
Cheers in advance.
