Nice review of a great pen. Mine is a blue marbled one with a broad nib.

Its a great pen! I love mine, although, I haven't used it in a while.
What I'm looking for: Montblanc 132, 235, 422 and 432. Any help would be most appreciated.

What color ink are you writing with in that review? It's a very pretty blue!

I notice that the section is , typically, stained by the ebonite: eeds a touch up with micromesh. All my Miyas and Extras do that. Thanks

Or simple Sterling Silver tarnishing where you don't hold it. I'd suggest either rubbing it with your fingers or at most a silver polish cloth.

Sulphur compounds emitted from natural gas fired appliances, heaters and hot water also speed up tarnishing. I have none of the above and in a bit over a year my silver pens haven't tarnished noticably.

Thanks! Very innovative pen review concept. I am a fan of Montegrappa pens. Cool photos, beautiful pen, nice handwriting, and what a novel and unique way to communicate your findings!

Great review!

Kind regards,

thanks for the review. It looks like the nib unit on the Miya and Espressione are the same and thus interchangeable.
