I am really interested in talking about materials of montblanc regular edition.

 

I email official for many time, but some results really make me confused.

191338-ecom-retina-01.png.adapt.500.500.

Montblanc STARWALKER EXTREME STEEL FOUNTAIN PEN

 

its description lacks the material of pen's grip and clip , so I emailed the official website and got this reply:"The grip is made of steel,

 

the clip is platinum plated. " However, it still lacks the vital part: plated what? brass or steel? 

 

After saw the second starwalker pen, the things made me more confused.

Montblanc StarWalker Carbon Fountain Pen

 

Its description is "Platinum plated",so its grip can be made of platinum plated? These pens are exactly the same in grips!

 

After I bought a very vintage pen 146, I knew that Montblanc Meisterstuck regular edition's metal is made of gold-plated

 

brass, the same as Boheme regular edition. But, starwalker is totally different from those two series.

 

I also go to the local montblanc store, the Clerk told me the clip is made of Germany nickel...after I bought Starwalker EXTREME

 

STEEL FOUNTAIN PEN, I know the black part is rubber...But the item description seem to lose this introduction... :yikes:

 

Luckily, I got a official PDF about material, but the Johnny Lennon edition says the clip is stainless steel... :yikes:

 

So I just want to know which is the true inside material under the platinum-plated surface about

 

starwalker carbon fountain pen's grip,clip and cap and extreme steel pen? :) 

 

Besides, Are starwalker all made of steel or just the extreme steel series? :) 

 

Of course I cannot use sandpaper to remove its cladding material to see inside material, it's really a waste.

This is a question that maybe you should ask Montblanc.

 

However, since they call the pen the Starwalker extreme steel, one might naturally assume it starts off as steel before it's plated.

 

I believe they either plate brass or steel depending on whether they want a gold plated finish or a platinum plated finish. You can usually tell which material they start with on C/C pens by looking at the screw threads inside.

 

They won't have plain brass screw threads on the inside of a pen that has platinised or steel fittings because they wouldn't match up. They are quite fussy about things like that.

They told me it's a business secret......

I had a look at their catalogue.  As always, they are boasting, not really supplying much information.  I tried to enlarge the images, but the resolution is too low in order to derive at any specific information.

 

I assume, looking at the thread and the sharpness of the ornamentation that the metal pieces of the body parts are nickel/tin or aluminium alloy injection moulded with subsequent machining, then electro coating and more machining... laser cutting.


with kindness...
