  1. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the exact type of this fountain pen. It is a montblanc meisterstuck. on the nib is inscribed 4810 18K montblanc 750. It is approx. 145mm long. I have attached a picture. Thanks for any responses.
  2. Hello all, I recently picked up a MB meisterstuck which buyed my father probably during the 80's.. With plenty other FPs I don't have a real usage with it, so before selling it I would like to know if it is well a 149 or not. It seems to be much finner than the usual one, and it has a "snap-cap" closure (not threaded). The nib is 18K and engraved with the number "750", I don't know what does it means. I don't believe this one accept converters, it is surely (universal) cartridges only. Otherwise, For sure it is used but in good condition, perfectly cleaned. I would like to know what would the average price to put on sale, compared to a modern one/other models, Thank you by advance.

  3. Hi there, I obtained this MB FP recently. I don't know every much about it. Could some one please help me find out more about it? I was looking at the recent articles on identifying fake MB, but couldn't find anything on this model. I have attached some photos of the pen. Many thanks
  4. My holidays rarely match with others’ in the family. So, last afternoon, while I was staring at the chessboard to play yet another game, I thought of putting the board to a better use than just moving the pieces against myself. So, why not take three big nibs out of their temporary resting places and give them a try. In this fast-paced world, fountain pens have most certainly embarked the sail of luxury, consistent with properties of both time and money. These days, keyboards – physical, on-screen or speech-engine ones have taken over a Pen’s traditional space-time. Thankfully, notebooks and writing pads are still there to keep them alive, even if people have started to take notes in their tablets, phones or phablets. Not being a fan of very big pens, I usually go for the minus-1 flagship models. They seem to be appealing from both perspectives of cost and convenience. Rather than writing everything down, I have left it to the reader to decide the verse through pictures, mostly. The pictures lose resolution with time, as I am using a free service. Please feel free to navigate to the same topic in my blog : Tale of the lesser flagships A briefer history in time http://s25.postimg.org/5h2xulkiz/image.jpgMONT BLANC I came across a real Montblanc pretty much later in life, though used to love a pen called Camlin Premier during school days. It came with a 1-pen leather pouch, an additional screw-fit nib and it did have the striped ink windows. I say I loved it, but never wrote with it since it belonged to my dad and I was a kid. Back in 1999-2000, it cost around USD 5.00 and it was a hefty price tag for a locally made fountain pen . Later I did realize that it was yet another MB 146 inspiration, when I went to a pen store in Calcutta. As most of you would know, Montblanc was started in 1906 a Hamburg banker, Alfred Nehemias, and a Berlin engineer, August Eberstein as Simplizissimus-Füllhalter which means Simplistic Fountain pens, after they learnt about fountain pens with ink tanks from the US. By 1908, three other people by the name of Wilhelm Dziambor, Christian Lausen and later Claus Johannes Voss had taken over the business and the company took the name “Simplo Filler Pen Co.” which referred to a fountain pen design with a built-in ink-tank. In 1909, a safety fountain pen made up of hard rubber called “Rouge et Noir” was launched, which actually means Red and Black. The pen consisted of a red cap and a black body, perhaps inspired from a card-game. You can also find a limited edition of the same. In 1910, the company became Mont Blanc, inspired by the highest peak of the Alps (4810 m) and a pen called Montblanc was introduced with a white tip (which would later evolve into a white star in 1913). In 1926, the Meisterstück was launched. By 1929, the nibs were engraved with 4810, the official height of Mont Blanc peak, as an allusion to supreme quality and craftsmanship. The flagship Meisterstück 149 was launched in 1952, evolving from celluloid & brass mechanism to resin & plastic mechanism over the years. For the Meisterstück 146, the ink windows were modified to striped version somewhere around the 1970s from clear blue window and the the two-tone nib was introduced in 1993-94. You can find a brief history of Pelikan here and Pilot here. 146in Pictures http://s25.postimg.org/vuzqt8oj3/DSC_1786.jpg http://s25.postimg.org/vd4lddyy7/DSC_1801.jpg With m805, Custom 823in Pictures http://s25.postimg.org/cm2o384dr/DSC_1803.jpg http://s25.postimg.org/9c6bx63ov/DSC_1805_1.jpg http://s25.postimg.org/aeyffaz3j/DSC_1809.jpg Dimensions http://s25.postimg.org/zc1sw7nlb/DSC_1819.jpg http://s25.postimg.org/3ly2j18a7/DSC_1819_1.jpg http://s25.postimg.org/a0x3fpezz/DSC_1819_2.jpg WritingThe writing experience is simply superlative although I do find the pilot custom 823 and m805 equally good when it comes to non-flex nibs. Custom 823 with a medium nib & a wet-ink, is still able to draw a line, tad thinner than both 146 and m805 with fine points. Personally, I prefer the widths of 146 and m805. http://s25.postimg.org/comjq281b/DSC_1825.jpg Ratings With my own biases* http://s25.postimg.org/xigz8aptb/146_FP_rating_scale.jpg References http://www.montblanc.com/en-us/discover/history.html http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/montblanc-meisterstuck-fountain-pen/ http://www.forbes.com/sites/anthonydemarco/2013/05/08/leadership-changes-at-montblanc-and-jaeger-lecoultre/ Thank you for your time; hope you like the chessboard too , Sonik

    Skipping Mont Blancs

    I recently picked up a vintage-y Montblanc Solitaire (gold plated, barley pattern, West German), and special edition Patron of the Art in unused condition (box, warranty card, and everything included). Both are medium nibs, and both are skipping, particularly when used on crappy lined notebook paper (standard legal pads and spiral-bound notebooks) or lined journals (Moleskine). The problem goes away when used on bond or printer paper, but it would be nice if they worked on legal pads too. I don't have this problem with any of my other pens, save for an older Namiki Sterling that I plan to send in for servicing. The skipping is on the downstroke. I've tried Mont Blanc Toffee Brown, Iroshizuku Asa Gao, and Iroshizuku Take Sumi in these pens. The older Mont Blanc Solitaire is skipping a lot less than the POA, which is surprsing to me. The POA is unused and far more expensive, so I expected the writing to be delectable. Turns out my Lamys, Namikis, and Porsche Design pens are far more reliable on all media I try them on. Any thoughts? How would you fix the problem? I appreciate your advice.
  6. Hey everyone! So, in the past month or so that I've been active on the forum, I've really fallen in love with you all. I've been thinking of a way to show it and, as the title suggests, I think I came up with a great one. From now until September 30th, if you grab one of the "Ultimate Pen Polish" kits, you will get an entry to win a BRAND NEW Montblanc LeGrand Fountain pen. http://i.imgur.com/ZJQCtE5.jpg As always, you will get the FPN discount of ~20% off, as well as free domestic shipping, at-cost international shipping, and a free micro-fiber polishing cloth! And, of course, you will still be getting the same kit as before: enough for ~50 uses! http://i.imgur.com/qQNPbsF.jpg Since it's obvious that there is a 99.99% chance I will be losing a great deal of money with this contest, you might be wondering why I am doing it. Two reasons: First, I want to show you all that I am here for the "long haul" and that I truly consider myself part of the community. I've loved our jibs and PMs back and forth, etc. Second, I want to get the "Ultimate Pen Polish" in the hands of more people. Everyone who has used it so far loves it, and I know that the more people use it, the more people will talk about it to others! To get your hand in the cookie jar, use the following link. If you are international, make sure to select it from the dropdown under the arrow: >>> ***CLICK HERE TO GRAB A KIT AND ENTER TO WIN A MONTBLANC LEGRAND (146)*** <<< Let me know if you have any questions! ps. Obviously Montblanc, the company, has nothing to do at all with this promotion!
  7. Hi everyone, new user here and also new in the fountain pen world. I just bought this mb meisterstuck on ebay, I haven't paid for it yet and I am very suspicious about its authenticity. I asked the seller directly and he told me he is the first owner and he bought it new, and he told me is genuine, but I want confirmation from other experienced people like I am sure some of you guys are. Here are the pics he uploaded, please help me: http://s13.postimg.org/dal2m0evr/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/80g3upumv/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/g3ea61f87/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/dksl5cthz/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/sfh6jj32v/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/tghf8nk2f/image.jpg
  8. Hello everyone, Could you tell from these pictures if the pen is genuine or fake? Pictures are from an auction site.
  9. I have just bought both a 144 classique fountain pen pop cap (engraved) and 145 classique/chopin? fountain pen(broken clip) and would like advice on removing the logo to swap cap barrel on 144 and put a new clip on 145. My wife has a 163 classique rollerball and the logo just unscrews quite easily, whereas my 162 legrand rollerball doesn't. Any advice for a newbie addict gratefully received!!!! Thanks :-)
  10. Dear members, I come back with a new task that was given to me lately. I had previously used this forum when I serviced an old Paker 51 by cleaning it completely, changing the ink sac and using new shellac to seal it. It turned out great and It became my everyday pen. Today I received from my Grand Pa, a beautiful Silver Montblanc Meisterstuck 144 that needs quite a bit of servicing. I would like to get your advice on the following points (I provided a few pictures so that you get an idea of the pen's current state): - I wanted to polish the silver, should I use a silver polishing cloth like this one (I read that advice on this forum) : http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/2128708.htm ? Or will it damage the pen? what about the gold? - I would like to take off the numerous ink spots on the pen, how should I do this without damaging it? - I want to clean the Nib, feed and section (get rid of the dry ink), should I just flush it with water? If you have any other advice on what i should do before using it, please let me know Thank you very much!

    Mont Blanc Identifiers.

    Hello. I need a little info please. I'm selling a set of 3 Mont Blancs on Craigslist, soon to be on FPN. But, I'm trying to answer some questions from a potential buyer. I believe reading at one point MB quit adding serial numbers to some of the pen series? I have the burgundy set of the Meisterstuck. Is this the correct name for them? I purchase & was gifted w/ them around 1992 or so. I'm quoting his spellings of the questions: "do the serial numbers and Germany on the clip rings"?, do they have the words PIX on the underside of the clips"?, do they come with the original box, service guide and engraving vouchers"? Attached is the ad from Craigslist & a couple of pics of the pens if this will help. I just a need a bit of help in order to give him accurate info. I do thank you for your help & of course I'll do more in-depth research myself. Just have never known of some of this info before... Best, LeRoy

    Mb 149

    The origin of this pen is still a mystery to me. My mum found a MB box amongst her old clothes, and gave it to me. She doesn’t recall exactly where she got it, but assumed that it was some of the things left behind by my grandmother after she passed away. Nobody’s sure where it came from, but regardless it performs very well and I’m glad my mum decided to throw out some old clothes! Note: When there are 2 rating, the top is for my satisfaction, while the lower is for how much it could do, for that particular category. For example, I might be extremely satisfied with a stiff nib (5/5) but the lower rating would be (1/5) since it couldn’t flex at all. The ratings are not included in the final score. Initial Impressions Box and Instructions (7/10) The box is a plastic clamshell type, and opens and closes with a firm snap. The lining is quite light, with a flexible fabric covering a plastic piece to keep the pen in place. It does not feel very solid, and although it hasn’t broke yet, it does not feel very high quality. I am assuming the pen and packaging was near mint, since there was no sign of regular usage. I loved how thick the instruction booklet was. Unsurprisingly, quite a lot of the content was irrelevant, although fun to read. There were separate instructions for the piston filling pens, as well as the C/C pens that they also offered. Aesthetics (18/20) The pen is extremely authoritative due to its impressive girth. I would usually be quite disappointed by a shiny black and gold colour scheme, but considering that MB kind of created that stereotype, you can’t really fault the pen. It’s a classic design that looks timeless, especially with the knowledge that this is the real thing and not an “homage” or “inspired by-“ pen. The nib is 18K and two-toned, which dates this to the early 90s. As it’s a #9 nib, the size is definitely appropriate for the rest of the pen. Detailing on the nib is nothing too gaudy, and contains the signature “4810” surrounded by subtle patterns. Towards the end of the grip “section” there is an ink window. I appreciate how the black is broken up by lengthwise lines of transparent material that shows the ink level clearly, yet does not distract or subtract away from the main feature, which is the shiny plastic of the pen. All of the plating is top-notch, and the white star is an unmistakable touch. Initial Feel (10/10) The pen screamed of high quality the first time I lay my hands on it. The plastic was impeccably polished, and the whole thing fit perfectly into my hands. I knew that writing with this would never cause a cramp, or be of any discomfort. Holding and writing with the pen was a dream. The threads, which I thought would be annoying, couldn’t detract from the fact that the entire pen was so comfortable to grip and use. It’s size alone would have done that, but moreover the balance was just perfect unposted. Posted (when it actually posts) the balance was just as great, but made the pen comically oversized. Filling (9/10) This pen is a piston filler. The operation is smooth and the pen can hold a lot of ink which has proven useful for longer writing sessions. An ink window helps the user judge the level of ink inside the pen and is subtly concealed by its striped nature. Performance Smoothness (3/10) Satisfaction (6/10) Rating The pen is by no means scratchy, but more tooth was encountered that one would expect. I suspect this may have to do with the fact that it sat unused, in a drawer, for at least 10 years, but even after servicing it couldn’t really compare with a lot of other pens which had a much smoother nib. This was disappointing, since it seemed as if the general consensus was that MBs are one of the best pens available, irrespective of their price. I brought it in to get a diagnosis due to its initial flow issues, and assumed that the technician would do something about the nib. Alas, that didn’t happen, and I had to cautiously make a few figure-eights on a 1000-grit abrasive paper which was the finest grade I could find. The nib was much smoother after, but still with a lot of feedback. Flexibility (4/5) Satisfaction (3/5) Rating Whilst the nib wasn’t “soft”, per se, it can do a decent bit of line variation. The nib is stiff, but can spread a little to make a wider line. The flow keeps up (although it isn’t THAT demanding) and it performs well when adding a little flourish to my regular handwriting. Flow (8/10) Satisfaction (8/10) Rating The nib and feed on the 149 is wet and has a healthy flow. Initially, the pen skipped and could barely start due to the fact that the old feed had to be replaced, since it was apparently broken or blocked. After this, the pen works flawlessly and can keep up with fast writing for long periods of time. General reliability (19/20) Apart from the old age issues, this pen is amongst the best for daily use. Its capacity is huge, and the pen will empty this without issue. This was among the pens I chose to bring into exams with me, and it accounted for my sanity at the end of a 2-and-a-half hour history writing exam with essay style questions. When I got home, I realised that I had barely made a dent in the ink reservoir even after writing over 10 pages. Construction and Ergonomics Fit (9/10) The pen’s components fit together flawlessly. The nib and feed are perfectly aligned, as is the piston knob that closes definitely and opens when needed. The cap, when closed, has a little bit of wiggle room, although it hasn’t unscrewed on its own for me yet. Overall, a very well made pen, which of course is expected from something that costs this much, Clip (9/10) The clip works well. It supports the pen’s own weight, but isn’t over-stiff. From far away, the design seems classic, and frankly, boring. But up close, you can see the ridges on the side, as well as the subtle curvature of the clip. These small design features are what gives the clip substance and complements the pen, as opposed to detracting from the rest of the design. Posting (2/10) This pen does not post very well. The cap goes on, but falls off at the slightest provocation. Not to mention, I was scolded by a clerk (oops) when I brought it in to replace the old, broken feed, who said that their “precious resin” would be scratched. Miscellaneous (Extra thoughts) Value for money (5/10) Although this is a great pen since I got it for free, I would not be too impressed with it given the retail price. I can think of another hundred ways to spend the money, and still end up with more satisfaction than I have had with this one pen. For a second-hand price of about $400, this pen is a great addition to any collection and would be worth the price. Innovation (5/5) It’s hard to comment on a 90-year old design, but seeing as it’s still being made to this day, something was done right. The piston filler feels almost like an “innovation” amongst all these proprietary C/C designs nowadays. Image and Advertising (5/5) This is probably the most recognised pen around. I knew of it even before I got into fountain pens at all. Montblanc’s marketing department did a spectacular job, and it’s the most commented-upon pen when people do see me using it. Buying experience (4/5) Although I didn’t buy this, I went to the boutique in order to get it looked at. The staff was very professional and helpful, and didn’t try to sell me anything once I told them my purpose. They knew exactly what was wrong with the pen after filling and trying it, and I only needed to wait a short amount of time for the technician to replace the parts at a reasonable cost. Total (117/150)=78% The 149 is an iconic pen which, despite my cynicism about the brand, performed well above expectations. The story behind this pen is one that makes me feel very lucky, and I have no regrets trying it out. Naturally, I would have been more cynical if I paid the full retail price for it, but I never expected to be this impressed by a brand I thought had become a commercialised business (to be fair, it has, but at least it can still make a decent pen). I am fully satisfied with the pen’s performance and design, even if the nib isn’t as flawless as I’d have liked it to. Despite its issues, of which I’m nit-picking, the entire experience is extremely pleasant, not in the least due to how I came around to acquiring the pen in the first place.
  13. Hi everyone, I have recently acquired a Montblanc Meisterstuck pen and I am wondering if anyone can tell me if there is a piece missing from the cap. When I close the pen it does not snap on securely. Can anyone shed light on this? Thank you, Sherryl
  14. I know that Meisterstuck 90th Anniversary pens are kind of new pens. But I never saw this before: http://www.montblanc.com/en-us/flash/default.aspx/#/collections/writing-instruments/unisex/meisterstck/meisterstueck-90-years/meisterstuck-90-years-special-edition-classique-fountain-pen-111531 Is this a new item added to the 90th Anniversary collection? Where can I buy it? Thank you in advance, -William S. Park

    Montblanc 149 Nib Tipping

    My mum's just found a 149 lying around in one of her drawers. It looks like it has never been inked, and is in overall mint condition. Except, I've noticed that the nib tipping on the underside seems almost nonexistent. Compared to other nibs, this seems very strange. Is this normal, or could it possibly be a damage to the nib? Compared to other nibs
  16. Hello! I´m new here because I've found in the middle of my mom's stuff a Montblanc Meisterstuck cartridge fountain pen and have been told it's quite expensive, and would love to know its real worth, if it´s worthy... It has no case, it says 14K gold nib, around the ring Meisterstuck Germany. Coul anyone tell me about this pen? Its year, how much it could be sold for? If it's worth keeping? Thank you!
  17. Hi FPN! A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of purchasing my first MB. I almost exclusively collect vintage pens, and wanted something unique to represent MB in my collection. I have always loved the styling of the Meisterstück 1X line, and was able to pick up a lovely No. 14 in very nice condition. The nib is XF, and needed some smoothing because it was very scratchy and misaligned. I also disassembled the entire thing for a good cleaning and greasing of the piston mechanism. Because I'm slightly ridiculous, I drove to a nearby jeweler who carries a small selection of MB items and snagged a bottle of Royal Blue ink. I'm not generally a fan of hooded nibs, but must say that the pen is able to remain uncapped for quite some time before it dries out (a trait I appreciate in long meetings). This pen was listed as having a 14K nib, and doing my research it seemed there is generally some confusion regarding this. While I had the pen disassembled I noted the hallmark on the nib was for 18K. The nib is firm, but markedly softer than the 14K nibs I am used to. Very little flex, which is okay because I intended this as a daily user for note taking at work. It's performance has been outstanding, with consistent ink flow and no skipping at all. It also holds what seems to be a gallon of ink, which is great for a daily user. It's neat now being a member of the MB club. I carry a wide variety of vintage pens with me to work, and they almost always go totally unnoticed. Now that I carry this pen I have had people come and ask, "Is that a real Mont Blanc?" Kinda neat. Sorry for the mediocre picture quality... I'm no photographer and have to do with iPhone shots. That being said, it's amazing how far phone cameras have come!
  18. My MBs haven't been treating me very well. First, my POA Oppenheim and vintage Meisterstück had to go to John Mottishaw to resolve skipping problems. Now, just today, my new Meisterstück LeGrand Geometric Dimension's piston filler broke. The knob now just screws out, unclutched to the piston mechanism within. Argh! My OBB nib is now out of commission! So off it goes for repair. This will be my first experience with MB service centers in the United States. What has been your experience with them? Anything I should be aware of? (e.g., shipping issues, tracking, etc.?) I noted that the cap on my LeGrand feels a little wobbly when screwed in as well, so I hope they can fix that problem as well as the piston mechanism. Anyone else notice this on sterling, platinum, or gold-plated Meisterstücks with plastic step-down sections? (Doesn't seem to be a problem with a metal step-down, or with any of my other pens for that matter). Arka C.
  19. Hello--I'm so glad this forum is here. I hope you can help me. I was given a Montblanc (or is it?) by someone who found it in a drawer and didn't want it because "he didn't like fountain pens." The nib is all yellow gold with no inlay and is labeled, starting from the point and reading toward the barrel, 4810, the Montblanc logo, 14k, MONTBLANC, 585. The cap ring reads MEISTERSTUCK-MONTBLANC-. The clip ring, though worn, seems to read W-GERMANY. I apologize for the quality of the pictures. The pen seems smaller than most Montblancs I have seen. It's lovely--but is it a Montblanc? If so, what model? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance--Laurieapg
  20. hi, I was offered this pen for 110$ dollars. from the pics...I could tell the pen has loose rings and nib with plating loss. it is vintage. as the ink window is not visible...I concluded it to be 142... but somehow the cap top seems a bit off.(seems shorter and fatter) please help me identify it. anyways here are the pics. http://i.imgur.com/k0rqH5A.jpg http://i.imgur.com/POx38dt.jpg http://i.imgur.com/KKEZNx6.jpg http://i.imgur.com/PJPXoDZ.jpg http://i.imgur.com/XNNumdN.jpg that's all the pics that I have. thanks in advance. regards Vikram

  22. Hi everybody ! I recently bought a montblanc 144 on ebay and I wanted to be sure It is a real one. The seller have a few positive reviews but not for selling pens. I paid 120 $ for it. I think it is genuine but I would like the confirmstion of you community experts ! -The nib passes the magnet test ( so it is likely solid gold but not 100% sure ) - THERE IS NO PIX ENGRAVEMENTS. -There is a serial number - it writes OK. - Came with a threaded converter - BROAD nib ( supposed to be ) - Two tone nib Here are the pictures :
  23. Hi guys! I must say I LOVE this forum. Here in Puerto Rico there is little to NO support or service or anything for fountain pens. I've only seen ONE store which marks up prices roughly %20. Anyway, this pen was given to me by my aunt about two years ago, my first fountain pen. I didn't know exactly how a fountain pen should feel, but she had this pen for probably around 20+ years or more before she gave it to me. Since I got into the fountain pen game, I can tell something's wrong. So I would like to ID the pen first, to see if maybe replacing the converter could help it. The pen says Montblanc Meisterstuck Pix on the cap ring, 4810 14K gold on the nib, the barrel is NOT see through in any part ( I've read about some Monts that have an ink view window). I hope these pics help. This forum is the ONLY real source of Fountain pen information I have, other than good ol' online searching. Thanks for your help!
  24. Morning all! I'm a novice fountain pen 'collector', have been writing with fountain pens for about a year and a half. I'm looking into getting a vintage pen. I've recently purchased a beautiful vintage Waterman's fine flex in robin's egg blue, which is beautiful. I'm now looking at a few choices in Montblanc. I'm looking for a really good flex pen in Montblanc, but I'm not familiar with Montblanc's number system. If anyone could help, I'd greatly appreciate it! Here are my choices: Montblanc Meisterstuck 114 Mozart w/ M 14k gold nib, 585 engraved, very good condition - $259 Mid 1950s Montblanc 344 w/ EF full flex, solid 14c gold nib, 585 engraved, very good condition - $290 1939 Montblanc 332 w/ Oblique Medium #2 flex nib, near-mint condition - $265 Thank you! - Devon
  25. I had a burgundy meisterstuck passed on to me from my Father. Had it for close to 16 years until I lost it. I went on ebay and purchased another burgundy meisterstuck. I confirmed with the local Montblanc store of its authenticity. My dilemma is this: it is significantly lighter than my original one. I thought it was me, but everyone in the family who has handled the new one says the same thing. Is there something I can do (i.e. go to the mont blanc store perhaps and ask for it to be "weighted" (I dont even know what that means, but the pens does not feel "right" to me. Thanks yall! lisa
