Hello,

 

I have inked the first time today my JFK 1917 fountain pen with the ink MB JFK. I put again my photos of the fountain pen and the some writing result of my test.

Thank your this wonderful writing sample. I am beginning to fall in love with medium nibs all over again.

Thank you Cyrille for your classic photos. 

 

What do you love and dislike of the pen? How is it holding up?

Hi Steve,

 

Thank you. I really like this pen (I have the 3 pens of the set in limited edition), one of my preferred. The only thing I could regret on my pen is the nib that is not right always perfectly. In my last inking of the pen few days ago I tested with an Iroshizuku ink that is more wet than MB and it seems the pens is writing better than with previous ink I tested in it. I sent it one time the pen to MB to check/correct the skipping issue, it was better after but still not fully perfect. But I really appreciate it and it is a pen you can use easily daily, even at work to my mind.

Hi, Cyrille. It’s not uncommon to see several skipping issues in today’s Montblanc nibs. The M nib on my POA 2018 Ludwig II 888 basically didn’t write at all even after a few strokes were attempted. The pen was inked with the complementary swan ink the very first time I bought it. The condition improved a little when I switched to mystery black ink. However I decided to send it back to change the nib to ef at the end. Upon return of the new nib I tested it with the swan ink again. I swear the ef nib writes hundred times better than the original M nib.

If you still have problem with nib on your jfk pen, don’t hesitate to send them back for inspection. Just let the nib masters there to solve the problems.

Cyrille, 

 

I appreciate your response, skipping on any MB pen is not worth the pricetag it asks for. If the pen is skipping, it should be fixed at any costs. I hope my pen does not skip upon arrival as it will be a disheartening moment. I remember my elizabeth I 4810 skipping on arrival, it caused a lot of despair. As ljz stated, send it back and get it fixed until you are happy. Perhaps switch it for a OBB hehe. Unfortunately, I can only write with M nibs as anything below or anything under is too rich for my tastes and my style of writing. 

 

Steve
