The best and the biggest Soyuz pen set, the Flagship Soyuz fountain pen, model 608 in a set with a mechanical pencil. The set is in absolute mint condition, barely used, with its original box and papers. No scratches, no cracks, no gold ware off or anything of the kind, simply stunning like manufactured yesterday. The pens feature the famous motives from Kremlin cast in gold and also two real pink rubies attached on each of the pens, one on top and one smaller of the side.
The Soyuz company is famously notorious mainly for its Parker 51 design ripoff (as many other of the Soyuz pen resemble), nonetheless they made great improvements in the pen filling mechanism and other aspects. This 608 model represents exactly that, a greatly improved pen design and functionality. The factory was stationed at Saint Petersburg, it was the only Soviet company at the time for manufacturing high quality writing instruments, and their pens represent a response to the many European and American manufacturers at the time. The difference between Soyuz and the manufacturers in Europe and USA, is that this company was not saving on materials (i.e. the pens have real rubies), they used as much as they needed, as it was basically free (precious metals, stones and other materials). The set is produced in the early 1960's. Quite complex filling system, (please check out the picture), thus it's extremely reliable and ink conserving. The mechanical pencil is superb, very precise twist on/off mechanism, very smooth and responsive. Both pens feature a very thick rolled gold that shines, and together with the rubies give simply outstanding looks. Both pens are very heavy with great grip, balance and feel in the hand. The nib is highly flexible, full 14K solid gold cylinder/wing nib, even though it is enclosed wing nib (as on the Parker 51), the flexibility i high on the tip, so it will write all bigger sizes up to BB. This is simply amazing writing and rare for a wing nibs. It is very easy on the ink, with great ink flow and smooth on the paper. All in all a superb writing instruments and a great piece of history in what was then high-end Soviet pen manufacturing.
