Excellent clarity and lighting. Creates a very nice mood.
I love the combination of the 149 nib and the strong stout body of this pen.
A great writing experience.

Titanic9990: the pen has indeed quite a broad girth (the size of a 139, a Hemingway or a Year of the Golden Dragon), the largest among Montblancs I think. And yes, the grapes are real...
Chris: not plums, but delicious grapes from Peru!!!!
BrandonA: I thought about a Poe several times; It looks beautiful.
Inked: IMO Dumas' nib is perhaps the best designed nib Montbalnc ever made. I like very much the nib of the Hemingway, because it is a simple, plain nib (in MB standards...), and the nib of the Dumas because it is so simply designed...
torstar: I have the father's signature, a memory of my lectures of the Three Musketeers...
pakmanpony: a Dumas can be irresistible (my wife told me it looks like a jewel, a serious compliment): defend it!
bernardo: it was a M nib, transformed into a very slightly oblique cursive by Mike Matsuyama before I bought it. A great work, and a nib that I like it very much. The pen is always filled with Irish Green and I use it for anything at home, from calligraphy to the grocery list.

I agree that Dumas nib is one of the, if not THE, most exquisitely designed nib of all Montblanc pens. In fact a close-up picture of this nib (which I borrowed shamelessly off of internet) has been my lock-screen wallpaper for my i-devices for years.

fpupulin, after reading about your postings about Dumas, I was so tempted that I had to get one for myself.
Beautiful photography and it really brings out the beauty in the Dumas nib.
