It is a well constructed pen and it feels solid and of good quality. It is made of black resin and has platinum trim. The threads are all metal and it screws together securely. The section is also metal. When using the pen unposted it is light and comfortable to use, in my opinion it feels a little top heavy when using posted, but then I don’t like to use any of my pens posted.
My pen has a medium nib and writes smoothly, the nib has just a bit of give to it. It is not an overly wet writer but it is by no means dry. I like the styling of the nib it is chunky and solid looking. The nib is 14K and has the usual Mont Blanc logo.
The cap is a screw on type and also screws on to the end of the body for secure posting when writing.
The only thing that disappoints me about this pen is that it is a cartridge filler; this is due to the slim size of the pen which is about the same size as a 144 or Generations model. Mont Blanc say that it does not take a converter as the body is too slim to take one and I don’t have one to try so I will take their word for it. I will refill the cartridge myself when it’s empty.
My conclusion is……
I like this pen very much :)9 it will be in my regular rotation. I do feel that the brand is overpriced in comparison to other brands of similar quality but I am glad that I have this pen its lovely and is a wonderful gift which writes beautifully and looks good. I am really going to enjoy using it and it has already received some complimentary comments at work.
