When dedication for the brand and obsession for demonstrators both are present, you eager to combine them...

 

Buying your lath, learning, exercising, being encouraged and trained by a pen authority such as "Fountainbel", someday you reach the satisfaction of realising your dream and making your own pens, this is today !

 

They contain and represent all visualisation of technique, quality beauty and perfection. Creating and assembling them you understand why they are called "Meisterstück". Generation, system, size, nib... all become "clearely" visual.

 

Maybe the combination of both would be the full perfection, telescoop with nib unit, however no must. Both are joy for the eye. Enjoy with me...

 

Thinking over the post title, came up... Montblanc undressed, Montblanc generations... "Visualised" won and  approached mostly my desire of realisation.

 

I look very much forward to your reactions and opinions !

Kind penregards,

 

PENRob

Those images are excellent fountain pen photography.

 

Thank you for posting them here for all to enjoy.

 

The banana trees in the background are a nice surprise.

Wow, what nice pens! Must be joy to write with.

 

As J. Keats says: "a thing of beauty is a joy for ever"!

 

And also beautiful photography, especially the exotic ones!

Belgium got really talent!  :thumbup:

Very nicely executed. I am sure many people will want one of their own so get ready for the incoming mails. :)

Is definitely be interested in some for a modern 149. Somethig to spice up the collection.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

Beautiful stuff Rob! I, too, love demonstrators. The Pelikan M805 engraved is my favorite one.

 

Are these something you'd be willing to do for others?


What I'm looking for: Montblanc 132, 235, 422 and 432. Any help would be most appreciated.

So much awesomeness in one photo! Thanks for sharing, The King Size is definitely in my whishlist to be matched with a MB 149 nib.

 

Keep us posted from the full demo please! I am sure we all are going to appreciate it.
