i note take and write alot everyday, i use extrafine,   the EF actually has subtle arabic/hebrew bevel ( axe shaped)  and the F has regular conventional ball tip if you understand what i mean

 

i actaully tried a BB at the boutique i found it too ghastly and thick for me for everyday note taking however for signing off documents.  Its an excellent tip.  so  either. pick EF  or fattest one u want,  not in the middle  


'The Yo-Yo maneuver is very difficult to explain. It was first perfected by the well-known Chinese fighter pilot Yo-Yo Noritake. He also found it difficult to explain, being quite devoid of English.

So we left it at that. He showed us the maneuver after a sort.  B*****d stole my kill.'

Second that. MB's EF is different from other brands' nibs. MB's F nib is very smooth because of the ball shaped tip. The tines of the EF nib have to be perfectly aligned to avoid skipping and/or scratchiness.

I owned a 144 and a 145 before and recently purchased a 146. It is a gorgeous pen. It is comfortable both capped and uncapped, but I found it more relaxing with the cap on.

It is really up to you. Fwiw I have three montblancs although none are 146 . ef,om and b. All are as smooth as silk .Personally I find the ef the smoothest and best to take notes. I have a light hand when writing.

I went to a boutique to try out the nibs. I tried the EF, F, & M. They all write great and very smooth. On a check signature on Che,k paper, I found the EF and the F very thin on the fast curls of a signature. The medium was perfect. But on certain papers the medium was very wide. The salesperson said the F maybe was abused and should be good on a new one. Should I get the F or the M?
