Here's my handwritten review of the Montblanc 14. I hope my writing is legible, and the PDF not a problem to download.

I'm pretty sure Montblanc services all their pens, even the really old ones.
The pen I write with, is the pen I use to sign my name.

Nice pen, though I must admit that I prefer the lowly 32. I can't seem to be able to use my 14 or my 12 without putting my index finger straight on the nib.

Excellent review of a beautiful pen. I have an MB 24 and have been looking for 14. They are not easy to find in near mint condition. Your choice of ink is outstanding and goes very nicely with the pen.

Nice :)

On a side note: does writing with a MB 14 feel different from an MB 24? The 14 has an 18K nib while the 24 has a 14K one, but is the 14 nib softer or springier?

How different is the MB 12 from the MB 14?

    A Vintage Pen has to be older than me.

It's a matter of size. The x4 series pens are longer and wider than the x2 pens; they are the same size as the next generation three digit pens. In this picture the top pen is a 74 which is the same size as a 14 while the next two are a 12 and 22. The bottom three are the next generation three digit pens; a 121, 221 and a 220.
