    Montblanc L’Aubrac Special Edition

    In 2012 Montblanc introduced another Masters for Meisterstück series of pens. The L'Aubrac is the second in series: 2011 Meissen2012 L'Aubrac2014 Moonpearl2016 Firenze Alligator2018 James Purdey & Sons.Like the other pens from the Masters for Meisterstück or Great Masters series it was made to pay tribute to master craftsmen of other traditional products than writing instruments. Three versions were made: Special Edition (fountain pen and rollerball; matching cuff links, key ring and money clip)Artisan Edition (50 fountain pens)Atelier Privé Edition (8 fountain pens).All versions were created in mind with the typical French knives made by Forge de Laguiole in the L'Aubrac region. The Special Edition is made from grenadille wood and sterling silver decorated with the typical rivets and historical Laguiole engravings. Only the clip is platinum plated. The Montblanc emblem is made from mother-of-pearl. A knife matching the pen's design also is available from Forge de Laguiole. It follows the general shape of the previous Masters for Meisterstück pens with a 146-sized 18K gold nib and no ink window. Body and cap are wider compared to the regular 146-sized Meisterstück fountain pens but share the same size for the gripping section. The wider cap and body result in a slope between gripping section and barrel. The cap closes softly. The weight without ink is c. 55.6 g (for comparison: Montblanc Solitaire Petit Prince/c. 62.6 g & Montblanc Alexander von Humboldt/c. 68.1 g). This pen was pre-owned but has not seen much (any?) use and came to me for Christmas fitted with a medium nib. One of my lucky finds in 2018! It feels similar to any Solitaire Meisterstück with some added width due to the wooden overlay. It is very well made and the engraved sterling silver parts and mother-of-pearl star are just beautiful yet understated and not flashy. The rivets and wood show no defects or flaws. Only the slightly different color of the platinum plated clip are a little bit distracting from the otherwise harmonious design. On my pen the wood is very dark and almost black; the wood on my Alexander von Humboldt is slightly lighter and shows more brown tones. This really is a luxury version of the classic Meisterstück pens with the additional decoration and nice materials which really deserves some attention. The medium nib writes a nice, smooth, true medium line. More info can be found on Montblanc's site: https://www.montblanc.com/en/discover/limited-editions/artisan-editions/l_aubrac-special-edition.html The German version of the catalogue can also be found in the web: http://www.x-v-x.de/download/Montblanc_LAubrac_Broschuere.pdf Those are the pictures of my pen I took this afternoon: P1440277 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440291 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440295 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440298 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440302 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440303 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440304 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440308 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440309 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440310 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440315 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440321 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440330 by pensninks, auf Flickr P1440331 (1) by pensninks, auf Flickr Cheers Michael
  2. Dear FPN, though reading the forum for quite some time, it is only my current situation that leads to finally subscribe. But before I go on, please allow me to introduce myself. I started writing with a LAMY when I was a little kid. Over the years I sadly forgot to use my Safari and ended up using roller balls. And then, after finishing my studies and to celebrate my first job I got a Meisterstück Classique with the more or less standard m nib. This pen was used since that time for all important writing. Later I passed it on to my sister. She took it with her to Greece where she wrote down whatever she was able to find out about our families history. The very same moment I myself got an Mark Twain. Later I started a collection adding the Collodi, Swift and Balzac as well as lately the Unicec LeGrand. You see the virus does its job. So today I am already planing on what's next. I am torn between quite different pens. The Sforza, the L'Aubrac and the Heritage. So by just knowing this little of me... What would be your personal choice and why? cheers, simme
