Can Anyone Name The Model Of This Reform Pen? Is It A Reform Pen?

A few years ago I bought some of these pens that were advertised as Reform Student fountain pens. I bought them from an individual, not an on-line store, not from Flea-Bay.

 

They write well, but I have always wondered if they are really a product of the Reform company, and if they are if they have a specific model number or name or if they're just called "Reform Student" fountain pens.

 

The nibs are stamped:

Iridium

Point

Germany

 

But we all know that that doesn't mean they were made in Germany. One had "Germany" on the end button,FWIW.

Here they are with their caps on.

Here's the end of the one with "Germany" on the end button. Can we call it a tassie on such inexpensive pens?

 

Anyway, if anyone can help to identify these pens I'd appreciate it :) .

They look like the "school pens" Reform brought out in the 1980s. A nice example of European industrial design. The "Germany" stamp suggests they were export pieces, since the ones for the internal market weren't stamped.

Maybe bumping this will help get it some attention...

 

It did, thanks.

Do you know if they have any name other than "School Pens?" The person who sold them to me called them "Reform Student" pens. I'm wondering if there's any model number or other name related to them.

 

Most of the ones I have do not have the "Germany" on the end, so a mix of domestic and export product makes sense. And I'm thinking that these are now more likely to really be Reform pens from Germany, rather than a knock-off from a few thousand miles east of there.

 

Do you know of any images of these or similar pens around? They write pretty well, and although I'm not looking to buy more I am eager to find out more regarding what I have.

 

Thanks for your help in this.
