Neither! Not my cups of tea.But if my life depended on it I'd go with the Hitchcock.

Not a fan of the clip on the Lennon.

I picked up the Hitchcock booklet from my local boutique today. The 80 edition is a lot more detailed and has a lot more references to his movies than I first thought. I don't like the barrel though.

I think my favourite is the Skeleton Lennon but I won't rush out to buy either.

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.
Play WE game. or POA game.

without a doubt the Hitchcock one. Fare more elegant in my opinion.
On a quest to find the best black ink there is. Tests subjects (updated):
Caran d'Ache Carbon; J. Herbin Perle Noire; De Atramentis Black Edition - Black; Lamy Black; Montegrappa Black; Parker Quink Permanent Black; Pelikan Brilliant Black 4001; Sailor Kiwa-Guro Pigmented Nano Black.
Not final list, PM me with further worthy test subjects

Surprised me, assumed you already had Lennon with that avi.

Me? The Lennon, no doubt about it. Maybe if I win the lottery!

Neither for me/ not my cup of tea.

As I recall, Hitchcock would certainly never have carried anything as flashy as this pen named after him. He disliked of any form of personal decoration and jewellery - would not even wear a watch. A pen to commemorate him would have to be the plainest thing you ever saw!
Sincerely, beak. God does not work in mysterious ways – he works in ways that are indistinguishable from his non-existence.

Already have a Hitchcock. I've looked at the Lennon a couple of times and The clip turns me off each time. I would however love to have the Lennon skeleton. It's right up there with the Chaplin and Eifel, all three are on the top of my list.
