Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

I think it could be interesting...I'm sure I speak for most when I say we'd like to see what you both got stashed away in your boxes :)

Hi,

from the list I mentioned, only 1, 2 and, 5 are in my collection :crybaby:. But I also have some other rare pens, the architect pen, the 136 pearl black ... and some others.

But of course, Max and Axel ... you both could open your boxes. There are probably some very, very rare pens.

By the way: One of my favorite pens is the 122 Malachite ... so if anybody here ever wants to sell his pen. Please let me know :drool:

Next Box..., okay, only a little part of the box. All pens are based on the 344, not realy nice in my opinion, but very very rare. To the left we have a beveled (12) 344

Keep going guys - this could turn into a 'pen off' :o but the winners would be...well us viewers of course! Nice to see pens that I have hardly heard of never mind seen.

Hi TETRIS

Max and Axel by far have the most interesting collection I have ever heard of. So these two would be the winners from my perspective :notworthy1: :notworthy1: :notworthy1: :notworthy1: :notworthy1:

and I would be very happy to see some more pens from Max :puddle: :thumbup:


best regards
Michael

I concur with Stephen, we will all be the winners and we are ready to :notworthy1::notworthy1: the three, Axel, Max, and Michael ... So, please give us a little more... The 122 Malachite is certainly among the most impressive at this point but I have nothing against the "Rouge et Noir's" or the Sarastro Overlay and, and... I will be coming often for more
Regards, Ariel

I have a 235 but I did not hear about a 135 before.

Here is what my search came up with; at least a little reference:

http://www.christies...bjectID=4333781


Lovely pen so far!

I really like the shown MB 138 with the engraved cap band and clip. Also the black and pearl 40 looks very nice. Is the #35 correct or would it need a #40 nib originally?


Also I'm really looking forward to some of Axel's. Michael's and Max's treasures.

Cheers

Michael
