Hi everyone, I'm new here  :sm_cat:

I have a Montblanc Meisterstuck 146 in burgundy resin, which my husband gave me 14 years ago so it's very dear to me! It's the first fountain pen I got since childhood many years ago when I had a Parker - can't remember which one, but it was brushed steel and I loved it to bits.

 

I wandered on to this site when I googled what to do about my Montblanc which I discovered had serious cracks in the body and lid - not my fault. Anyway, that's all resolved now - I won't go into the whole story about that here!

 

I live in Devon, England. I was astonished to discover how many people are passionate about fountain pens. I'll check in here from time to time as I've got a lot to learn. I'm happy to share my limited knowledge with people, or just hang out and have a laugh.

 

Cheers everyone.

Allie

Hi Allie, welcome to FPN. You'll have plenty of fun here!

 

I'm a Janner myself, though I live on the other side of the world right now. Miss the Westcountry enormously.

Hi Empty. Devon is certainly special. I've only lived here for 3 years but I really like it.

Hi penrivers. To answer your question, I don't know how it happened. All I know is, I picked up the pen one day, having not used it for a while, and discovered cracks in the barrel and the lid. The cracks went along the pen, not around, if you see what I mean. I hadn't dropped it or anything. But I did some research online and discovered other people have had a similar experience... Anyway, it's all fixed now. I sent it to the MB service centre in Hamburg and got it back within 3 weeks. I did have to pay a small fee, but I thought it was worth it as the pen is as good as new now.
