oh my. what an incredibly beautiful pen.

 

Francis, this is the first time I've had the pleasure to see your work. How much do they normally go for?

I've never figured out why hand sizes have anything to do with anything. My hands are small but love MB 149s.

That imperio celluloid is one of my all time favourites. From the beginning I've liked the bulkfiller mechanism; however, the original pens were smaller than I prefer. The oversized bulk filler prototypes are a good size for me and I love the #8 nibs. I'll buy one if I can afford it (ideally in this celluloid... :) ).

 

#8 is never too big.  :D

Hi all,

Conid just confirmed they will start making an LE edition of this pen, dedicated & marked to the " Great war Centenary 1914-2014"

Given Conid only has a small amount of the Tibaldi Imperio celluloid left, the series will be restricted to 10 pens.

Production will start  in March 2014, pens are expected to become available early May 2014.

Please contact CONID directly for prices and reservation : werner @conid.be

I hope I emailed Werner fast enough too (probably did as it was few hours after Francis' post). I'm waiting to hear from him one way or the other. On the upside, if we miss the pen in Tibaldi celluloid, I'm sure they'll be available later black Delrin and other materials.

Is it possible to post a picture of the pen with a MB 149 next to it for comparison (with the cap off! since the Bulkfiller will be a non-posting pen)? I received an email re: price--- 1418 Euro.

Hi Lszuk,

FYI : Below a "non posted" size comparison picture between the Kingsize flat top Bulk filler, Montblanc 149 en the streamline kingsize bulk filler.

Hope this helps !

Thank you so very much. The only problem now is which kingsize bulkfiller to buy. I love the larger nib. They both are amazing.

Indeed. I think I actually prefer the shape of the streamline, especially the thinner barrel and resultant lack of a step between barrel and section. On the other hand, I love the Imperio celluloid.

Hi raging.dragon !

Note the pen will alternatively be available with a "sleek" barrel, i.e. without de barrel diameter step.

What a fantastic looking pen.  I have been collecting for a little over a year now.  I started out with the usual Lamy AlStar and gradually invested a bit more each time in the pens I'm increasingly becoming dependent on.  I am on a budget like so many others, but would love to find something like this in an affordable and accessible price point.

Then again, who needs food and medicine.

Stunning.  I hope to find a way somehow to include it in my group.

Thanks for sharing the photos and information.

David
