  1. Wow I can't believe I just risked ruining the Parker Sonnet(Gen 1 Laque Firedance) that my mom gave me, which also happens to be my first ever fountain pen. I saw that the tines were misaligned and bent the lower one, over did it 2 times(first time adjusting a nib, and it was on a pen with actual sentimental value, I know I'm stupid), had to bend it the other way around, got about 8 heart attacks, almost died of cardiac arrest, and finally did it, here are the pics.

    Strange Leakage With Generation

    Hi, A strange problem with one of my Generations. When I pull of the cap I often find a tiny little ring, or at last tiny drops, of ink on the section a few millimeters above the nib. This is when I use Montblanc cartridges. If I use the official converter it almost always happens. Furthermore I sometimes get a smudge on the tip of my index, where I have been holding the pen. Otherwise it writes well. It has been cleaned thoroughly with ultra sound, and even 5% ammonium solution. I have not had similar problems with my other Generation. Has anyone else had the same problem? What could the cause be? Some kind off suction when I pull off the cap? Or some microscopic holes in the section? I haven't seen any with a loupe. Sorry, I have no good picture. Max

    My Second Montblanc

    ok fpn has infected me, hope the infection doesn't get worse. I just received my second montblanc ...a gently used montblanc generation. for 85$ shipped. http://i.imgur.com/Kdl3Rby.jpg http://i.imgur.com/oQ0JqPM.jpg http://i.imgur.com/BXNQfCH.jpg http://i.imgur.com/IG1qK23.jpg http://i.imgur.com/qEaGocb.jpg unlike my first mb(Alfred hitchcock)...it has the potential for becoming an everyday carry...as I won't have to worry about spoiling it by mistake. another plus is that it is cartridge/convertor pen...I find it easier to change ink in them. even though they are not considered luxurious I prefer then. on first receiving the pen I was a little bit disappointed, as it felt very light(I usually use metal bodied pens like sheaffer legacy heritage, modern parker premier , waterman carene, cross townsend etc ) but after using the pen for 2 day...I like it a lot. the nib is very smooth and just glides on paper. it hasn't skipped and start as soon as it touches the paper. has good ink flow...I preffer wetter nibs as they tend to make the shading in inks more pronounced. I was curious, the clip has made in Germany , and pix written under the clip(as shown in the last picture) but no serial no... do the montblanc generation pens have a serial no?
  4. Hi everyone ! Have you ever held the perfect pen, I mean the pen that is perfect for you, that suits all your needs. The first time you wrote with it, had something different that you cannot really explain perfectly. Well that is the case of the Montblanc Classic. It is pretty similar to the 221 and the Genreration, fitted with a medium 14 k semi-flexible nib. Here is my review, the more objective way possible. The look : Very classic, vintage look to it. Does not look like the modern Montblanc's and it is a good thing ! very original for a montblanc but if you step away from theses brand standards you see a beautiful pen, very classy. The nib section of the pen is absolutely amazing. I often get great comments about it ! "What montblanc is this" "I've never seen this before ? what is the model name ?" The nib : It is a VERY smooth nib ! very enjoyable. It is a 14k semi-flexible nib... When I bought it, the selle told me that the nib was flexible... well I can't say that the nib is "flexible"... Is is way more " semi-flexible" than flexible. Thus, It has a great feeling to it, pretty sprigny, the perfect everyday writer. Weight and balance : It is a pretty lightweight pen (about 16g), made of a plastic like material. However, it is perfectly balanced and does not feel cheap. It is very pleasant to hold and you can write for a long long time without being uncomfortable. Personally, I like heavier pens... but the classic is so well balanced and comfortable that it is not an issue at all. Feed : You have to love wet pens because it is flowing generously. It is incredible..... I mean it never stops or dries out : you could write at max speed for 5 hours and if there is ink in the converter, it will never stop or skip, it will be as wet as in the first minute. Conclusion : It is my favorite pen, I use it everyday and I like absolutely everything about this pen. The only thing that could be better is the weight and construction, since the pen is very light. Grab one if you can ! And once again, I don't like giving notes to the pens I review : writing is personal, so I let you make an idea with the information I give ! *** English is not my first language so please understand if I made some mistakes in the reveiw, I hope it is helpful and interesting and if you have any comments, I will be more than happy to read them
  5. Hi everyone, I bought a new pen recently but I can't say what model it is. I was thinking about the cc 221 but the number is not engraved on the cap, maybe the classic but i have no information about it. Or the generation. Please help me Thanks a lot
