Preface:  I had a Lamy  AL-Star fountain pen I loved dearly. It wrote just the way I liked and was extra fine. My wife wanted to get me a new pen to replace my lost Lamy. (I told her the Lamy was cheap and amazing, but she didn't listen)   She decided to get me a second hand Mont Blanc off ebay.  While it skips at my normal writing pressure if you press even lightly on it, it writes so fat my letters start to bleed together.


Problem: I want to replace the nib on this pen with a finer one. I don't know if that is possible with this Mont Blanc because I can't readily Identify which pen it is (it might even be a fake)


There is some damage around the top where the gold leaf has come off the resin, also the pen clicks into the pen top as opposed to screwing into the pen top. 


Can anyone help me identify what type of Mont Blanc this is? I know its a meisterstück but thats all.

I put a card next to the pen for size ref, same size as a credit card.












thanks for any help

Thank you,




I know a Mont Blanc is a huge step up from my Lamy, but I loved that pen.
