    Hello From The Hudson Valley

    Hello. I'm a woodturner located in the Mid Hudson Valley. I do not make pens, but perhaps I should reconsider. I have a Montblanc Meisterstuck Solitaire Sterling Silver Pinstripe Ballpoint Pen with a B nib. The nib is broad. I want to improve my handwriting and found some lovely italic scripts. However, since my nib is broad, I can't recreate the look. Can anyone recommend a nice script for a broad nib? I've tried Cursive Italic and Spencerian but they look clunky. I've tried various script fonts in InDesign and those too look awful - Alex Bruch, Allura, Bickham, Chancery, Edwardian, Freebooter, Pushkin, Scriptina, Snell Roundhand, Tangerine and Zapfino. Any Advice? Thank you all so much! Jenn

    Montblanc Meisterstuck

    Hi! I am new to fountainpennetwork.com and really happy to have found this place. I recently came across a Montblanc fountain pen. I want to know the name and year of this pen. This is a piston filler pen and holds a lot of ink. The nib is gold (14k) and a little window is given on the body to check the ink quantity. At the end of the cap, it is inscribed "montblanc meisterstuck". Other than this I have nothing to help me identify this pen. I visited a few local dealers who hold the view that the pen is very old with a make of 1920-1930's. The pen writes buttery smooth and is a charm to write with no problems whatsoever. I am just curious as I don't believe the dealers. Check the pictures attached to get a better idea of the aforementioned pen. Regards Aditya India

    Can We Identify This Pen?

    Hi everyone, I was hoping you could help me out. My Grandfather left me this pen, and all I can tell about it is that it is a montblanc meisterstuck ballpoint. I can't find anything online as it's a little different to most meisterstucks from what I can see. It is plane white with the montblanc logo on the top in black and white. Silver trim. Its says "montblanc meisterstuck" engraved into a metal ring in the middle where you twist the top to get the pen out. the bit that makes it different from any that I've seen is the nib has an engraving of a map of all the glaciers around montblanc and the elevations of each. (sorry this isn't very clear in the picture, I had to compress them to get them to upload) The reason I would like to know more about it is because I would like to sell it. I hate that it just sits in a draw all day when there is someone out there who would appreciate owning it. I also think my Granddad would like to see it being used, which I just don't. The money would go toward a trip to Japan that I'm currently planning and I think that my granddad would feel better knowing that his gift contributed toward this adventure rather then gathered dust in a draw. but because of that I really don't want to get ripped off and for selling it to turn out meaning nothing anyway. Hence why I came to you guys. Sadly there isn't a box or any paperwork to go with it, my Granddad just used to keep it on his desk. but I think all that stuff got lost after we had to sell his house. Thank You for any help you can give and taking the time to read this. Please see pictures attached. P.S. if anyone know a good place to sell it to I'm all ears

    Can Anyone Help Me Verify

    This was passed on to me from a friend, Im not sure if its authentic? The code engraved on the pen is a number and with Germany on the other side. I looked inside the pin it doesnt have PIX logo. Thanks in advance
  7. My Original Montblanc 149 — Background and Age Estimation ~ After reading through the entire thread begun by DKbRS titled “Dating Montblanc 149s” I was deeply impressed by the careful thought which he, Barry Gabay and others gave to developing an approach to estimating the dates of 149s. Their resulting graph is both comprehensive and practical, enabling a novice like yours truly to easily follow and understand. A comment in the thread by jar made a strong impression on me: “Gifts are Beyond Price”. His wise thought especially resonated with me because my original introduction to Montblanc was through the receipt of a gift. Around 1987 or 1988 a friend was supplementing his junior high school teacher salary by working part-time in a men’s clothing store in a relatively small community in farthest northwest California. The store offered men’s suits, shoes, neckties, belts, wallets and such, with nail clippers, straight-edge razors and fountain pens on offer. I had no direct acquaintance with the store beyond my friend’s conversational tidbits about his work. At that time I hadn’t thought of fountain pens in nearly two decades, since briefly using them in my teenage years for school assignments. I’d certainly never heard of Montblanc, although my dad had both Sheaffer and Parker fountain pens in his desk, which were inked with dark blue ink of unknown provenance. Late one afternoon without any lead-up my friend presented me with a small cream box, saying that it was a gift to express his appreciation, as I was in the process of relocating for career reasons. When I opened the box there was a large black pen with a white star on the cap. After uncapping the pen and glancing at the large nib, I mumbled thanks to my friend for such an unexpected gift. The boxed pen remained uninked for weeks as I was caught up in moving and employment change. I had no sense whatsoever of the value of the gift, let alone of the reputation of the Montblanc brand. Any information about the model or the nib size was wholly unknown to me. Uncertain as to what to do about inking it, I tucked the presentation case into a storage box as a keepsake of past friendship, gradually forgetting its existence. Decades passed with my career taking me far beyond the shores of North America. The digital age arrived bringing global network connectivity. Once a high-volume writer of personal letters and postcards, my postage stamp purchases dwindled down to nothing. Somehow I felt uneasy about the diminishing personal touch in communication, fondly remembering afternoons or evenings devoted to expressing thoughts and feelings on paper. No matter where I moved, the presentation box with the large black pen went with me, as a tangible reminder of a happy time in my life. Nevertheless it never once occured to me that the pen would ever be of practical value, it being little more than a tchotchke of sentimental value, but nothing more. Years went by without the presentation box ever being looked at or the pen seen. In a sense I thought of it as an impractical dust-catcher minus any dust as I had no inkling what it was. One evening in 2011 I was reorganizing my desk in my Beijing apartment. Looking through storage drawers filled with documents, blank paper, ball-point pens, markers and office paraphernalia, I came across the decades-old cream presentation box, forgotten in a back corner. Smiling, I mused on how it had traveled with me to many farflung locations but had never been of any use. Opening it, I took out the pen and looked at it. As had never previously been the case, something about the pen’s white star seemed familiar yet no specific association came to mind. A bright desk lamp facilitated a close inspection of the pen, which I’d never done before. I was surprised to read words on the cap which were transcribed with a ball-point pen in order to look them up in a search engine. Within minutes I first read a general overview of Montblanc, discovering that there was a boutique in Beijing. The laudatory comments on-line about Montblanc motivated me to take subway line #1 to the Oriental Plaza Montblanc boutique in Wangfujing Street. I also read that counterfeit Montblanc pens were widespread, which prompted me to conjecture that what I owned was most likely a fake, as I couldn’t imagine having ever received a gift of substantial value. When an English-speaking sales staff member asked how they might help, I pulled out the scuffed presentation box and asked if the fountain pen was one of theirs and, if so, would it be possible to purchase ink. Several staff members scrutinized the pen informing me that it was indeed a genuine 149 Meisterstück. The price of ink on offer exceeded what was in my wallet so the staff offered to ‘unofficially’ give me two bottles of outdated ink. I left the boutique with the pen finally identified, two bottles of blue ink and without having spent anything beyond the modest round-trip subway fare. The name 149 meant nothing at all to me. They made no comment about the nib size and I didn’t know enough to have asked. At my desk I sought to draw ink into the pen but nothing happened. I tried again with the same lack of result. Losing enthusiasm, I thought that it might be broken or that it required a high degree of expertise to use. Accordingly, I put it away uninked. In 2012 I spotted a reference to Montblanc on the Internet, with the familiar star emblem. Remembering the pen and two bottles of ink, I pulled them out and decided to renew my effort to write with it. Once again, no ink drew up when I turned the piston. This time I went to the Internet to seek guidance about difficulties in inking a fountain pen. I read that in certain cases long-dried plugs of ink interfered with ordinary functions. It was recommended to soak a fountain pen in water and wait. This I did, waiting for over ten minutes. Suddenly a dark blue cloud exploded into existence in the clear water. Feeling that progress had at last been made, I carefully followed the cleaning regimen I’d read. After drying the pen I opened one of the ink bottles and turned the piston. It worked! With joy, I nervously put the nib onto paper, writing my first-ever stroke with a Montblanc fountain pen. After a quarter of a century, the gift I’d received was at long last functional. In the years since, I’ve purchased from Beijing Montblanc boutiques 11 fountain pens, two ballpoint pens, 18 bottles of ink, a Starwalker Extreme ScreenWriter, two belts, a wallet and a large briefcase. I’ve also bought two vintage 3-42 G semi-flex fountain pens. As the various pens I’ve purchased and enjoyed using have taken up all of my thoughts, I never wondered about the original 149. After using nibs of various sizes, it seemed that the first 149 was an M nib, which writes smoothly with every use. That was good enough for me. ***************************************************** The “Dating Montblanc 149s” thread educated me at a basic level about the features used to assess approximate age of a 149. I’d never given any thought to such diagnostic features as 2-section barrels, narrow shoulders, plastic threads, split ebonite feeds, ‘Germany’ on the cap ring or the style of the umlaut over the ‘ü’ in ‘Meisterstück’ on the cap. As it happens, all of those turn out to be relevant to dating my original “gift 149”. The M 149 sits on my desk, rather than in the presentation box. After reading “Dating Montblanc 149s” I pulled the box out of storage, finding a one year guarantee card and trouble-shooting tips, both of which are dated 2/87. Comparing the evidence from the pen itself and the presentation box with the 149 feature chronological graph from “Dating Montblanc 149s”, it may be that the pen is a mid- to late- 1980s 149 sold in the American market. It was probably pre-owned when I received it. To date I’ve only inked it from the two gratis ink bottles given by the boutique during my initial visit. There’s never been any issue, but I realize that it might be time to shift to current inks. If I’ve overlooked the obvious and made gross misjudgments it would be another step in my gradual education about Montblanc fountain pens. For anyone interested I’ll post photographs of salient features of the pen, as well as the presentation box, its contents, and the two original ink bottles. All of my association with Montblanc has been more than satisfactory. Reading FPN posts in the Montblanc brand section is consistently enjoyable. I hope that this post may be of interest.

    Az Looking For Montblanc 144 Help

    I found three montblanc and need help with one of them all take cartridges. I belive them all to be 144.
  9. I did a review of these classic fountain pens in 14 short videos that show every detail of the pen in English auf deutsch en Español:
  10. I have a Montblanc Meisterstuck pen set. It comes with a extra ink. Had thr black case and fhe 6 point star is on the pen.I bough it from an estate sale. Wanted to know if it's real, wanted to know what 528 written on clip means. I have either silver plated or platnium. Also I cannot fully read my ident number on top of pen
  11. I have the opportunity to buy a brand new Montblanc Meisterstuck at a very discounted price. However I am a little wary of whether the pen is the real deal or not. This was all the images I was offered. I know there are a lot of things I cannot tell from just these images, and I've known and heard of checking for the Pix underneath the clip, using light to see if the barrel is red, etc. However, I am just not experienced enough with this brand (I've never owned a Montblanc yet). What are you thoughts, guys? Any specific thing I should ask for, or anything you notice? Alternatively, I have also sourced out a Montblanc Mozart and I also wanted to ask if there's any telltale signs or anything I should look for. The seller said they'll send me more pictures later as they are out of town, so the only one I have is this one at the moment. Thoughts? Thanks in advance guys!
  12. ~ During recent months it's been necessary to re-read a number of books, among them crime novels by Donna Leon set in Venice, Italy. While reading I was surprised to notice Montblanc fountain pens mentioned in four of her novels. • Death in a Strange Country (1993) in Chapter 8 when Vice-Questore Giuseppe Patta signs papers • Death and Judgment (1995) in Chapter 3 with Avvocato Trevisan makes calculations • Acqua Alta (1996) in Chapter 4 when Vice-Questore Patta is described as using his Montblanc Meisterstück • Wilful Behavior (2002) in Chapter 22 when Commissario Guido Brunetti's friend Marco Erizzo uses a Montblanc with purple ink Are Montblanc fountain pens frequently mentioned by contemporary fiction authors? If so, I wasn't aware of it until now. Had I read more widely perhaps this wouldn't have surprised me. Tom K.

  14. Hello My Dear Fellows, Im going to get my first Montblanc Meisterstück coming friday, I've been safing my money for about 3 months now, and now finally the time has come. I heard many people saying "oh no you have to get it pre-owned" I don't think so. I want to be the first owner of the pen, even if this means I have to pay a lot more. Doing the first stroke, the first filling, that's what it is all about to me, when Im getting a new pen. Also I got an old pre-owned Montblanc 121, which is an big dissapointment, because its just damaged. So yeah, I will test out the two pens 149 and 146 and then decide which one will be the best fit for me. I'll keep you guys updated, how I got served at the boutique and how the writing and overall the pen feels within the days of usage. I also know there are many posts about this pen out there, but I wanted to do an in depth one, without any opinion untill I got the pen stay tuned! Vossi
