I have been liking my fountain pens for quite some time now and want to get my first "really expensive" pen.
I am interested mostly in some pens from Cartier, Chopard and Montblanc. You get an idea about the price range.
I have read many things about Montblanc pens already, but I find it hard to find much information about Cartier and Chopard pens.
What is the general consensus about them, are they good writers, are they very overpriced and rather comparable to lower end pens, or maybe something entirely different?
Keep in mind that I will not be able to try these pens before I buy them, I have to "blind buy" them online most likely.
Pens that caught my eye were:
Montblanc Rouge et Noir (the new one)
and some from the MB great characters.
Thanks in advance!
