    Is this MB 146 legit?

    Hello, I have come across this pen on an internet auction. The price is fairly good, but not too good. It is Montblanc 146 LeGrand Gold. Is it legit? What to look for and what to ask the seller for to be sure?
  2. Greetings! I have recently stumbled upon a montblanc 146 with gold trimming for sale for 150 euros (2nd hand). I am not sure about the date of purchase yet, but if I get that info I'll write it below later. The pen seems to be in good condition despite a small crack on the piston knob. Below are some pictures of this pen. What are your opinions on this pen and is this a good price for one? Thank you very much for your help! Kind regards

    Ef And Shading

    I’ve been happily living in 0.45 - 0.65 line width land for some time now, and have been particularly enjoying the shading I get from soft Ti nibs. Of late I have been having a strong urge to purchase an EF. Digging around I’ve noticed Mr Kelly’s fondness for these, and have noted shading in some of his written examples. Something not seen so much, or so distinctly, in other brands. My question is, do contemporary MB EF nibs exhibit this characteristic? I’m particularly thinking of a Platinum 146. My only current MB experience is with a delightful OB 234.5. I had a 149 forty years ago but

    New 146!

    Just got a new 146 AND my first MB in the mail! it is great, got it off classifieds. Just wanted to show it off a bit here. It is a '80-'90 146 with a full ink window (now really visible in pictures because of the ink inside) and a soft monotone fine nib. My apologies for the terrible photography (and sideways picture it seems... how to change that, I'm not sure) The only issues are some skipping problems and hard starting, which is unfortunately quite frequent, but I will try to solve that. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.
  5. I’ve been reading other posts for quite a while and got a lot of useful information. I am appreciated to all the shared knowledge from Youtube and forum FPN, fpgeeks, and Reddit. As that knowledge helped me to get started, I also want to do some contributions to this community. During the past year, I got really serious and had some nice pens for my personal collection. I would like to share my thoughts about those pens. As I come from Hong Kong, the suitability of the pens in writing Chinese words is reviewed as well. That’s why you will find Chinese writing in the writing sample. The first
  6. I just got this Montblanc 146 F nib fountain pen from a ebay bid. It was claimed to be new. It looked new too. But the nib was misaligned. You can see in the picture. I spend about an hour and I was able to realign the tines. I am very new to Montblanc and this is the first ever Montblanc pen of mine. I need some help conforming its authenticity. I got it for $251 plus $15 shipping from Italy to California. There were no one placing bid until the very end of the listing. Some one else placed bid before me. I won in the end. Thank you guys! Note that I did use a strong flashlight to illuminat
  7. I am fairly new in the fountain pen collection world but I have been using fountain pen since very young. Im currently a college student and Im looking for suggestions for my next pen.

Pilot Custom 823 M nib Here are some of the pens that I am interested in: 1. Pilot Custom 742 FA nib 2. Pilot Custom 743 FA nib 3. Pilot Justus 95 F nib 4. Sailor 1911 realo F or M nib 5. Sailor Profesional Gear realo F or M nib 6. Montblan 146 F or M nib Which one
  8. Some of you may have already seen this over in the Montblanc forum, but I have a 1995 MB 146 that I recently purchased and *was* in pristine condition until the collar became attached. I do NOT want to send it back to Montblanc because I'm paranoid that they will either remove the nib and feed and put it in a brand new pen or god forbid, they send a whole new pen altogether. I love this pen, I love how it writes, I want it repaired and not replaced. Do any of my MB family have recommendations for someone who can repair it? I've seen a couple of names bandied around as I've done some searches

    Yet Another Ebay Dilemma With A 146

    Hi! This is my first post here on FPN, i've been reading the forum content for a while but only now came across with the need to post something. I wanted to buy a modern version of the Montblanc 146 with no signs of use, and since i'm a student i have to buy it in second hand. I don't have any questions regarding the pen authethicity, however, i'm very concerned about what can go wrong, like losing all the money, or dont' receiving the pen. There are two pretty good deals on ebay for around 200 euros on pens with ~15 years, never used, with box and papers. The sellers have a rating of 108

    Blue Inks In A Mb 146 Broad

    Bonjour - having experienced some stops / drying out with BayState Blue in a 146 90th anniversary edition Broad nib, I tried some other inks in addition to the bottle of J. Herbin Éclat de Saphir on hand. The Éclat de Saphir looks the most vibrant after BSB, then MB Royal Blue. Thanks for your thoughts.
  11. Hi everyone, I got an unexpected gift today - a supposedly new MB 146. The person who bought it has no experience with fountain pens (guess she's just fed up of listening me talking about them), and got this MB on ebay without realising the amount of fakes around. I did take a look at the listing: the seller has over 1000 sales, no recent negative feedback, many different pens sold; price was about 30-35% off list price. I started going through the "checklist" of obvious signs to detect a fake, but I'm also no expert in MBs. And there are a few things that got me confused and I hope anyo
  12. Hi all This is a Montblanc 146 with 18c two tone nib. It is from my personal collection but I couldn't find any info about it. I do appreciate if someone could provide some information like years, production background regarding to this pen. Thank for watching.

    Hi There Form Madrid, Spain

    Hi there everyone: I'm FP4ever from Madrid, Spain. Have allways had a penchant for fp's and even used a couple as a boy, Parker and Sheffear. Cheap ones. My sister had a set of 51's (fp + pencil) and my dad a set of 75's in silver (fp+ballpoint). When I turned 13 we went to Nelspruit in SA (we lived in Mozambique at the time, in 1973) and I saw a set at a local shop which I couldn't let go, the Montblanc Carrera in yellow and black (fp + ballpoint), which I have to this day in pretty good condition, along with those 51's and 75's. I've been writing a diary online for many years and a few month

    Is This An Authentic Montblanc 146?

    Hello dear colleagues, It’s been a while since I have started to read this forum and based on the information and advice that I found here I decided to purchase a MontBlanc 146 F nib from a local auction site for 250 dollars. It seems to have all the “security” elements peculiar to this model: the word pen written underneath the clips, the nib identical to that of an authentic MontBlanc 146, the code on the rings of the clips and the shades of red when put in the light. What worries me is that even though the seller has clearly stated that the pen was brand new, the cap rings seem oxidized,

    146 Feed Replacement

    Just got my hands on a 146 that I think is from the 1970's that needs a new feed. I purchased it used with no box or paperwork. Can anyone suggest where I can get a new feed? Thanks

    My 146 Makes Noises

    Hi everyone, I've received a MB 146 today, and I'm experiencing strange noises what I can't detect the source of. Here is a little vid about it: http://youtu.be/o9ciL6JGfW0 Any thoughts on this? FWIW Nib is 14k, the feed is like this one: The cap opens/closes with half a turn. This was a surprise for me after my Legrand.
  18. Let me preface this by saying I am a newcomer to this forum. In my short time on this board I have gained an amazing amount of knowledge by researching the posts of those who have shared their experiences and knowledge. I thank you all for sharing, and totally blame you for causing the re-occurrence of my once-dormant OCD addiction for fountain pens. After 28 years of fairly constant use, my beloved MB146 developed the dreaded collar leak. For the purposes of this story we shall call my MB 146 Penelope. On August 19 I sent Penelope off to MBNA in Fort Worth for a spa treatment. The followin
