I just joined and I know I'm wayyyyy off topic but I just got a brand new Fyodor Dostoevsky fountain pen by Mont Blanc! The Dostoevsky is my favorite out of all my MBs (I collect them), and some bonehead sat on mine and broke it in two places. I have a friend with a pen store and he gave me a brand new fountain pen, Dostoevsky of course, for only $430.00!!!!!!! He even threw in some purple ink. It IS my birthday, after all. : ) Sorry for jumping in like this but I'm so excited I couldn't help myself. Now if I could only find my way back to that section entitled " Dumas or Dostoevsky " because I feel sure I can be of help in that area. : )

Uh oh. That pic came from my camera roll where I sent a picture of my new pen to my best friend whom I call Zeus. Completely forgot there was a curse word in there.

Maybe I'm just a little OC, but is it sad I noticed the folded corners and bent clip and spattered ink but not the, uh, "impolite" word? That is definitely using that pen (still stickered) in a way the old Russian would appreciate.

Should have sent it to MB for repair.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
