Dear fellow Montblanc fans,

 

We made an overview video about the new Montblanc Great Masters Red Python edition which was recently launched by Montblanc.

I know my posts on this topic are becoming repetitive and my opinion is likely highly idiosyncratic, but - to my eye - most modern MB pens are quite garish and oftentimes ostentatiously so, this one included. I'll stick to MB vintage and the 149 series.

I really like it. Beautiful.  I guess pens can be utilitarian or works of art and sometimes both.

How does the Python feel about this pen?

Snakes!  Why'd it have to be snakes?

 

Actually, I thought it was quite attractive - until I saw the price.  But then again, I don't suppose the python was a willing participant in this project, so perhaps the price is understandable.

I the case of this pen I agree.

 

Most leather products owned by men are either black or brown in colour.   I would never consider buying a wallet, shows or belt in red leather.  Looking at this pen I think the same is true for pens.  I think it would have been a far classier pen if it were black or brown.

I believe there are 3 colors that will be introduced. A black, a brown and a red. I personally don't understand who they are targeting with the red leather because it's so over the top.

@Gerigo, those with over the top taste?, Kidding aside, they might be thinking of female fountain pen users who would appreciate a little bling, but a lot of female users I know prefer pens of a smaller, slimmer size, there are of course some exceptions as Ghost Plane uses pens that are 149 in size.
