Hi All,

Ive been working on putting together a website on vintage Montblancs. Over the past few months Ive tried to steal a few minutes here and there every day or so, to write up one section at a time. Its the first time Ive made a website or written content that is non-academic, and so its nothing special really. Photos were just taken using an iPhone. So, its a super modest site, but I wanted to share some information with other enthusiasts out there. Its much better on the desktop than phone but check it out anywhere if you have a few minutes > https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com

The website has two sections:
1. Pen reviews - where I explain the history and features of my vintage MBs
2. Pen talk - where I post interviews with pen experts and collectors (this is work in progress)

Enjoy!

Your website is set up nicely. The modest format makes it a pleasure to view. It looks like it will be an excellent site for Montblanc collectors. Congratulations.

Very nicely done and already booked marked. 

 

If you're going to add more technical details and drawings it'll be a unique treasure for collectors and just the curious alike. 

 

Congratulations and thank you for sharing your collection and knowledge.

Very nice! I've already bookmarked it and I'll be reading it regularly. I'm glad vintage MBs have a dedicated new page! Now, if you can induce the company to re-issue these classics you'll be the Pen God!
