If the good souls of Montblanc want to control what is seen on this website, why don't you tell them to buy an ad? Seems to work at Car & Driver.
It is also odd the level of censorship on this forum. Look at other fora, regardless of hobby or focus. Nobody follows behind tsk tsking at the commenters for acting upon their own views instead of the manufacturers'.
What a wasted opportunity for a pen. After setting eyes on the rollerball link, they can keep this under wraps for another 400 years. He wrote "Hamlet" with a goose feather. Seeing what MB has made of this heritage makes me shudder. A Parkinson's Disease tremor-inspired signature to boot? What other indignities shall they shower upon him? How about a woodcut of him with food falling from his mouth on the certificate of ownership?
MB has been making a mess of their limited editions fairly frequently. All too often, they slap on a name and put overwrought touches on them. JFK and boats? Pavoratti and a scarf? Frequently, I wonder if the Montblanc designers are just creating a new iteration of their most prolific line, the Liberace Model.
I say this as a real fan of Bill, FPN, and Montblanc.
