Yes they are both Meisterstücks, so no specific differences between them other than the actual model numbers that show whether they are FP, BP or RB.
Montblanc Meisterstück 164 is a twist action BP with 3 cap bands as standard.
Montblanc Meisterstück 146 is a piston filling FP with 3 cap bands as standard.
Maybe I misunderstand what you are asking but there is no such thing as a 146 ballpoint. All 146s are fountain pens. Many people misidentify their pen and call them a 146 ballpoint.
You're right, I'm confused, and ignorant about MBs...but it's getting clearer now. As I now understand it, then a 164 BP will match my 146 FP in terms of size and styling, is that correct?
Is the 164 sometimes referred to as the Classique or is that a different model?
I appreciate the education, thanks!
