Here is my Montblanc rotation team (The Oscar Wilde is visiting Germany due to piston issues). The one that have gotten more use over the years is the Agatha, followed by the 149 and Dumas.

I find my 147 seems to get the most pocket time of my Montblanc pens closely followed by one of the 234½s.

At the moment are my two solitaires. Just felt like a change for heavier pens.
Resin chaps are sleeping for the winter, they should wake up in the spring.

My first post!

 

I've been on a bit of a Montblanc spree lately. No fountain pens yet, I'm still deciding which fountain if any, I want from Montblanc.

From left to right:

 

1). Starwalker Screenwriter (stylus) Extreme Steel

2). Starwalker Extreme Steel Ballpoint

3). Blue Hour LeGrand Rollerball

4). Tribute Medium Ballpoint

5). Tribute LeGrand Rollerball

My latest is the Blue Hour Rollerball. Here's two more pics of it:

Few of these are no longer with me but sorting out which inks in what was a tad time consuming :)

Thanks! It has an amazing OB nib on it. One of my most heavily used pens.

A large bottle of Hitchcock red! Nice! Very envious.

 

Both fine hordes, gentlemen.

 

Enjoy.

I like the look of the 136.

Looks similar in size to the 146 (which I have).

 

Are they easy to come by?

Rough price?

 

Thanks

Thanks! A 136 is quite smaller than a modern 146, but compared to a vintage 146 it's about the same length and a little slimmer.

 

This is one of the transitional models from the late 1940s when they were designing the 14x series to replace it. 136s aren't terribly hard to find, they pop up for sale on eBay a decent amount. Reputable sellers like penboard.de usually have them, as well. Prices range a bit in my experience. I bought a wartime 136 unrestored for $500, restoration was like $50 or so. This 136 cost me about $700 dollars, while two of my others cost over a $1,000 each.

 

I hope that helps.
