Just got my hands on a 146 that I think is from the 1970's that needs a new feed. I purchased it used with no box or paperwork. Can anyone suggest where I can get a new feed? Thanks

If you're not too worried about keeping it to its original specs, I'd just take it to a Montblanc dealership. for a service and get a modern plastic feed.

they'll make the pen look new as well.

This raises a question for me, and pardon my ignorance. Is there an advantage to an ebonite feed over plastic?

Easier to set the nib, which is a huge advantage IMHO.

There is to some but not to others ;)

I've both ebonite feed and plastic feed 146's. In my experience the ebonite provides more controlled flow, the plastic is near too wet on many papers. Just my 2 cents
"how do I know what I think until I write it down?"
