Hello Everyone,

I'm brand new to FPN and a novice collector as well.

I have a Montblanc Meistestuck ball point that has cracks in it and also what appears to be finger nail polish on it. Is there any hope for this pen?

Send it back to MB and expect to pay but receive a repaired pen.

The only authorized Montblanc repair facility in the USA is located in Pennsylvania. Even if you take your Montblanc to an authorized dealer they will send it to this location:

Montblanc North Ammerica, LLC
252 Broadhead Road Suite 500
Bethlehem, Pa. 18017
1-800-995-4810
www.montblanc.com

If you go to the official Montblanc web site look for the FAQ page. Click on the question "Where can I get my Montblanc repaired." Follow through and you'll see both foreign and domestic repair locations.

I've had two Montblancs repaired by the Pennsylvania office with good results. They are not very fast but it certainly will not take months.

I hope this helps.

Jake

I have Meisterstuck ballpoint that developed a crack in the barrel, I presume from twisting the mechanism to expose the tip. I grudginly sent it to the Montblanc repair center. They notified me before they did any work and I paid by credit card over the phone. The repair cost was $50 but the pen came back as good as new with a new refill in it. If I recall correctly, the $50 is pretty much a standard fee for their service and only in the last couple of years did it go up from $35. The repair was a whole lot cheaper than a new (or used) pen so even if you don't have any sentimental value attached to the pen, it is still a pretty good deal. I also learned a $50 lesson not to twist the pen so vigorously when I get ready to use it.
