Greetings all or, y'all or all y'all,

 

Earlier this week, I bought my first fountain pen since elementary school; a Mont Blanc Meisterstuck, 146 Solitaire Doue.  After a lot of careful study on the FPN about spotting fakes, I bought mine on Ebay.  It arrived never before inked.  I have since inked it. I believe the nib to be a medium or a broad, hard to say without a comparator.  I suspect the silver cap is stainless steel and not sterling,  not marked, although it does have a number on the clip which might indicate information about the metal content of the cap. I've attached a photo.  Looking forward to learning more and many thanks to all of you who offer such helpful advice. I'm looking forward to participating.  IMG_1786.jpg

Howdy from the hinterlands of Greater Austin. Hope you find all the info here that you're looking for, which I suspect you will, and then some.


I may not have been much help, but I DID bump your thread up to the top.

Ha, no, I've not been to Unity.  Shame they couldn't live together in Unity since it was disbanded.  I notice a number of Texans on FPN. Perhaps it has finally cooled off enough for us to think about something other than air-conditioning and iced tea.

Welcome aboard, from Charleston, SC. If you are a newbie, you might look at the Reference Pages on a website called Richard's Pens: it has a wealth of info about the basics of fountain pens, their use and care, and it will help you avoid making some mistakes. A couple of other websites with useful information for newbies include PenChalet, Jetpens and the Goulet Pen Company. Goulet has made quite a few videos available on their website and on YouTube, which are helpful with some procedures related to FP use. Bear in mind that how your writing appears on the page is a complex interplay of pen, paper, nib, ink, and handwriting, so be patient as you experiment with these variables. Enjoy, and good luck.
