I got two montblanc 149 pens that has 18c EF nib.

 

By the way, they both have Grand Canyon Slit.

 

Is it normal state in vintage 149 18c 'ef' nib? Or just my pen's defect?

 

 

I think this slight grand canyon slit intend to make smooth flow for narrow nib.

 

Tell me what you think about this! Thank you!

I am not sure what you mean bt "Grand Canyon Slit" but the last photos look like the tines are a bit far apart and need adjustment. How are the pen writing?

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

Grand Canyon slit means the gap of 'V' shape.

 

Pen writing has no problem. It's moderately smooth and crunch feeling. Because there is no gap below the nib.

 

I would like to know whether this v shape nib is defective or not.

 

Thank you!
