My 146P arrived today.

This pen has been reserved for the Mont Blanc Midnight Blue ink. It's a brand new pen, very clean ink windows, almost a shame to ink it. Almost. :embarrassed_smile:

Just bought a Bordeaux 147 today. This pen doesn't get too much recognition on here, but I am really enjoying it so far. The travel case included is a big plus as well!

Until tonight I hadn't bought a MB on ebay since May last year. I've just bought a Schiller. I'm quite intrigued about this pen. I saw it in a cabinet in NYC in 2003 but didn't touch it and have not seen it since. Not quite sure what to expect.

Two more to go (excluding the yet to be released 2012 edition) in order to complete my collection: Voltaire + Hemingway. The goal is to get these pens before 23rd June 2013 which would be 10 years after I bought my first WE pen.

My Collection:
Montblanc Writers Edition: Hemingway, Christie, Wilde, Voltaire, Dumas, Dostoevsky, Poe, Proust, Schiller, Dickens, Fitzgerald (set), Verne, Kafka, Cervantes, Woolf, Faulkner, Shaw, Mann, Twain, Collodi, Swift, Balzac & Defoe
Montblanc Einstein (3,000) FP
Montblanc Heritage 1912 Resin FP
Montblanc Starwalker Resin: FP/BP/MP. Montblanc Traveller FP.

Congratulations BrandonA. It must feel really good to be a step closer to reaching that fantastic goal of yours set for June 2013. Looking forward to reading of your undoubted success and seeing the pictures of them all lined up.

I was lucky enough to go to Hamburg and see all the current ones displayed in Montblanc's Head Office and they REALLY look good together. However, an individual's collection really would be something to drool over :thumbup: Can't wait.

Nothing special: only two rollerball refills, "Nightfire red" (wow!).
Actually, it's a normal red refill, just more expensive. But it sounds good and I like the box. :ltcapd:

All are of good quality with all boxes and paperwork except for a couple where I only have the book book and paperwork. I knew about the lack of boxes when I bought the Dumas and Wilde, I bought them though as the price was too good to resist.

The problem with FPN is that it is not in the EU so I'd have to pay import duty. I tend to buy from European eBay sellers, my preference is from the UK but good UK pens are hard to find.

Thank you. I'm now starting to think what I'll spend my cash on when I have not WE pens to buy. First thing will be a handmade wooden storage box.

I hope to go on the factory tour one day, I image it is great seeing all the pens and learning about the manufacturing process.

A barley corn sterling silver (heavily tarnished) 146 with a desk set and 2 ink wells.

I need to send it into Montblanc to confirm authenticity and possibly get the tarnish cleaned away.

Well, my latest wasn't a purchase, more of a gift from beyond. Visiting my grandmother last night for her 82nd birthday I asked her if I could poke around in Grandpas office to see if he had and fountain pens. Of course she didn't mind. I found a late 70's MB slimline in excellent condition and a 50's Sheaffer snorkel that has been well used. I was able to get the MB cleaned up and working last night and have it here at the office with me today. Fun to be using a MB that was his.

A silver polishing cloth should work easily.

Well that's going to be hard to follow but, I'll make a try at a first post. I've been reading posts here a while and thought I'd contribute. I have been collecting pens here and there and posting pics on a popular watch forum for a bit. My latest MB is the Masters for Meisterstuck Porcelain (Meissen) in white. Cheers, RS
