That's a beautiful nib and a great story.  I hope you get many, many years of pleasure out of what is truly a one-of-a-kind creation.

Now that looks great! thanks for sharing and enjoy!

 

~ jsolares:

 

I'm so pleased that you liked it.

 

While it has a fairly specialized function, it does what it does with elegance and style.

 

I'm so impressed that despite its narrow width there's no sense of scratchiness.

 

Thank you for your kind comment.

 

Tom K.

There's nothing that I would alter in this review.

 

The Bespoke EEF has performed flawlessly in every situation.

 

It's been to Africa several times on safari, recording notes about a leopard mother with cubs sighting in a notebook.

 

The smoothness of the nib is extraordinary, in that there's no scratchiness whatsoever.

 

The pen writes immediately upon use, even after sitting unused for a spell.

 

Ink flow is steady and more than adequate.

 

It's easily the finest writing tool I've ever used.

Hi Tom,

 

I just found this topic in the forum, and I loved it, the same as the OBBB one, it is a great story you've shared with us, thank you for that.

 

I started on fountain pens with the tendency of using Fines and Extra Fines, because those suited me better at that time, now I'm starting to like the broader nibs, but as you mentioned, I enjoy writing with my Extra Fines, Mediums, and now... broader ones.

 

I'm still having troubles to post photos, but I'll work on that to share handwritten messages.

 

Take care, cheers to all fellow pen friends.

Thank you for the excellent nib photos!

 

They're clear, showing fine details.

 

Not only that, but also a handwriting sample!

 

Your posts above brighten my evening.

 

I'm delighted that these pens will now provide quality writing for you.

 

Your posts illustrate the satisfaction of obtaining pens with nibs which suit one's individual writing style.

~ I've learned what Montblanc's Bespoke Nib Program is capable of doing. 

 

Fresh information suggests that the Hamburg Nib Manufacture Team are wizards.

 

Were a customer to have a one-of-a-kind nib in mind, they're fully open to developing it.

 

That's food-for-thought. My Bespoke experience was an absolute pleasure from start to finish.

 

What was good once might well be just as good again!

 

We'll see...

I enjoy reading this outstanding review at least every twice a year... a mandatory reading for all those who love EF nibs. :)
