Thanks mate, the leather case holds 4 pens and even the 149 fits in easily, paid 310$ at a dealer instead of 430$ that Montblanc boutique quoted me, the dealer still has two in stock in case you're interested, the other side of the pouch welcomes a small notebook to take quick notes and was given to me free of charge by the same dealer (15$ @ MB boutique). I just placed another order this morning on a Dumas M nib (wrong signature) and wondering what ink color would suit this babe.

I bought the 146 OB ('70's) that was listed in our classified section. Bought it last weekend so I am waiting for FedEX to get it from the west coast to the east coast. Will be my first OB nib so I'm hoping I will like it.

Thanks mate, it's Montblanc Meisterstuck Leather 4 Pen Zip Pouch And Memo 30374, Ident 16351. To tell you the truth, even at the Montblanc boutique in HK the sales have never seen this model, when i asked Montblanc customer service they replied me that it's a limited run and very few boutiques around the world had few in stock, i was lucky to find it at a reputable dealer in my city, he had only 2 in stock and i believe the other pouch is still available for sale.

The biggest pens fit without a problem (146, Shaw, Twain, John Lennon...etc)

Thank you all for the comments!

It is a grey 146 that I was able to obtain not a while ago; and I have only one--maybe two word(s) for the pen: Wow! Beauuuuutiful~~

It's a 234½.

Four in total in the past 10 days!
- Boheme Green jewel, platinum trim, gift to my son. Tried it, love it. Amazing size, M NIB, writes like a champ. Fluid, wet.
- Schiller FP, M NIB. NOS, bought at an authorized dealer.
- Faulkner FP, M NIB. NOS, bought at an authorized dealer.
These two are the subject of another thread I started "Best Montblanc deal ever" as I paid US$ 1,030.00 for BOTH pens new at the dealer. Pics posted on that thread as well. :rolleyes:
- Mechanical Pencil "UNICEF", NOS.

Now I have to stop until next month. :eureka:
