There is a good chance I buy a brand new 149 OM this year. As I want my next pen to be the last one for a long while, I have to make sure to not be disappointed. We'll see.

Thank you all, it has indeed been worth the wait.

I wasn't sure either but I got a Tolstoy a year or so ago and immediately loved the finish, and knew the Martele was a must for my collection.

I'm also a big fan of the martele look. Too bad this one is above what I'm ready to put down for a pen as it is one of my favorite looking pen of all time.

So, Bill, how long did it take for MB to do your nib exchange on the Martele? Gorgeous pen and I love those oblique broad nibs!

I ordered it in July from a large American dealer.  There were 8 other folks in line ahead of me (which I did not know at the time).  My name came up finally in Mid-December, and the pen went back to Germany for the swap.  It arrived back at the dealer in mid-January and was shipped to me then, arriving last Friday.

That's a beautiful pen. I saw and held it at my local boutique. I'd love the same in a 145 size for weight reasons. (Probably price, too)

Shannon, I can recommend this seller... excellent service, couple day shipping to Boise.  If this isn't what you wanted, you might try sending her an email.

She has an EF also.
