Hi there FPN community!

I'm about to buy my second FP and as I am a newbie (¡23-y-o!) I have some questions:

1) Is it possible to clean off and remove de BC logo that is imprinted in the resin cap?
If so, how would I manage to brush that off?

 

2) I've tested Reform pens before and I've liked them. Does anyone has feedback from this Reform w/ iridium point?
It has a complete black resin body (I guess) and a golden iridium nib

Any answer will be much appreciated!

 

Thank you for welcoming at this network!

It's not a bad personalisation as logos go, but it doesn't look very deep.

 

I would start with a silver cloth but be very careful to not touch the gold plated band or the edge of the clip. I think you will need to protect both of those parts before you start.

 

If a silver cloth didn't work, I would progress to a slightly abrasive polish like Meguiars plastic polish, or any similar one that you have especially for your pens.

While I'm by no means an expert, I would agree with Chrissy. Extra fine abrasives probably will be best.

Also, be very careful with the gold plating on the pen (not only while removing the branding) I have one Reform P120 (and I believe this here to be the same clip and cap band) that I use (and one spare one) and on the former the plating had rubbed off (looking fairly shoddy) really quickly.

I have since then removed the plating entirely (again, extra fine abrasives) and it looks fine now in green, black and silver.

 

In addition, the pen is an excellent writer, so I don't mind that it's not exactly a looker.

I would masking off everything around the imprint that you don't want to get scratched up, leave just the circle and a very small area around it.  Later, as you polish the area for the final time, remove the mask from all but the gold trim.  That plating is thin -- Reform made nice pens but did not use thick plating.
