Got me a few ( 3 ) of these old German piston filler fountain pens . 

I don't know anything about them except one seller said they may be late 80's early 90's .. 


1) Pretty smooth writer 

2) Does not hold as much ink as other piston fillers 

3) This one has a tight piston action ( 2 out of 3 ) , one is a little too easy  .. 

4) Writes on the wet side 

5) Canting the pen left made no difference 

6) Canting the pen right - very scratchy 

7) Inverted was like writing with a nail 

8) Screw on cap 3/4 turn 

9) No leaks no burps 

10) Instant starter 

11) Can still be had on Ebay 

12) Posts just fine

:notworthy1: Thank you! I've stumbled across these but found no info. Piston pen and screw on cap, shouldn't evaporate much... If it were a dry nib I'd jump on it, need something less wet for Kon Peki... And I'm saving for a Pelikan.
