So far we have collectively determined Precious resin (or possibly AKA Bakelite) is very hard, shiny and scratch resistant like porcelain, resistant to glues and solvents, resistant to extreme heat, and resilient to dropping on a concrete floor by yours truly.  Sounds like pretty good stuff to me!

I think the point about being "resilient to dropping on concrete floor" is irrelevant as, in my experience, pens always land on their nibs. :D

We've pretty much come full circle in this discussion of Montblanc's "precious resin" material, and there are a number of people who seem to have jumped in specifically to gripe about Montblanc, its products, and the people who use their products.

 

This topic thread is now closed.
