  1. Hey everyone! I inked up a pen with one of my last cartridges of MB Toffee Brown to see if I wanted to purchase a full bottle of it before the price hike / packaging switch / potential reformulation or discontinuation. The answer turned out to be no, but then I had a pen full of ink to get rid of. What better way to do that than a review amirite? This one is not as entertaining as my previous review. Blame the ink. It's not an entertaining ink! I also stopped halfway through the review because I had the bright idea to search for a solution to the Wateman Kultur nib dryout problem, and

  3. Hi everyone, (By the way, I'm fairly new to pen collecting, so I apologize if I say something stupid). My brother wants to buy me a special pen. After a lot of consideration and procrastination, (I think) I have decided on the Montblanc Writers Edition Shakespeare pen. It's a beautiful pen, and given that it commemorates Shakespeare, I don't think it will ever go out of style (of course, it's a gift from my brother, not an investment -- I'm not really expecting to part with it in my lifetime). When I was first looking, I could buy the fountain pen (Fine nib) for around $950 (

    344, The Humble Montblanc

    In a previous review I managed to introduce a brief timeline of the 34x series. Now I wish to present to our community a revised, enlarged and corrected version. I hope it may be useful.

MB 344, the humble Montblanc The Montblanc 34x series was introduced on the market at the beginning of the fifties; the starting year being 1951 or 1952, even if some pre-series are presumably from 1950.

  9. When listing a pen on an auction site or when selling pens on other platforms, words such as ‘not working’ and ‘broken’ have a tendency to make buyers deeply hesitant. Sometimes though, it is worth the risk. The flip side of course is that it isn’t worth the risk at all and you end up crying over a steaming pile of junk and the money you wasted on it. Luckily the Carbon Fibre Solitaire that came to me from southern Spain was worth the risk even though the seller was honest enough to let me know that the piston mechanism was broken and the pen was not working. It had been well used by its previ

    Authenticating Montblanc Resin?

    TL/DR version: Do knockoffs of black Montblanc pens ever have the characteristic wine red glow to the resin? Longer version: I recently bought a Montblanc at an antique store: Black with silver-toned (likely platinum) trim.13.7cm long capped; 15 cm long posted. Nib=18K, unmarked but apparently EF Cartridge/converter fill. Lousy pic quality available or I'd post. Comparing it to a current production model, it looks identical to the Meisterstuck Platinum-Coated Classique, which has a 14K (not 18K, as mine) nib. This was a one-on-one sale; the stall owner seemed to know very little about F
  11. Preface: This article is to discuss the Montblanc 12/14/22/24/32/34 series, giving the reader detailed information on this series history background and structure. Also will discuss the pen's variations. I always enjoy this serie because these pens are very well made and the nibs are divine. There is not too much information for them available, I would like to make my contributions. And also if you are interested, I always have a couple of them available. Enjoy! Historical Background: First, I would like to quote from http://montblanc.parkerpens.org/montblanc.html. In 1959

    Xrays Of Montblanc

    I know many of y'all have stayed up at night thinking "I wonder what a Montblanc looks like when x-rayed". Well, I am here today to finally answer this age old question, lol. As I am the Chief (and the Indian) of Radiology where I work I said lets do it. Actually, several times during the week I fire a test shot of the x-ray equipment after its been restarted or calibrated in the morning in order to confirm that its ready to shot during the day. Usually I shot my Iphone or keys. Today I had my 147 Traveller that had not been inked up yet and thought lets tested on that. Well, here are the resu

    Montblanc Honoré De Balzac

    This review is part of a series of "blues reviews". Someone sent me a sample of this ink a while back. At long last I've gotten to using this lovely ink, and writing up a review. The papers are Hammermill 28lb inkjet, Mohawk via Linen, and Tomoe River. Too bad I didn't know about his ink when it was available as it's a nice turquoise. The ink appears to be a single dye. Somewhat similar to pthalo turquoise.

    Inked a couple of times. Dipped a few times. Sitting in a desk unused for several years. Bought from a Montblanc Boutique in Troy, MI in late 2006. Stamped on the warranty booklet. Model 3497. You can see the serial number in the picture. The cap is pinstripe gold and my terrible pictures don't do it justice. The model was discontinued. It's a 144 size that works with cartridge or converter. Comes with box, warranty card and converter. Was inked a couple of times and is now cleaned out with distilled water. You may be able to see there is slight tarnish / discoloration on the gold plated clip ring at the end of the section, which is common, I believe. I may have left the pen with some ink residue on that clip for a while. Normal desk wear from it being moved around a bit. Please PM me with questions, more pictures, writing samples. Price does not include shipping. Will be approx $20 in the CONUS, including insurance and tracking. More if outside CONUS. Proceeds will go to charity to help with food and education: 33%: https://fcpsfoundation.org/impact/kids-in-need/ 33%: https://www.foodforothers.org 34%: Food / Education charity of your choice.

  17. Two and a half years ago, I purchased a Montblanc 146 pinstripe Solitaire with an extra-fine nib. The nib wrote beautifully; but after a little while, the piston mechanism broke--despite the care with which I had treated the pen, I must add. I sent it to Montblanc for repair, as it was still in warranty. The pen came back with the piston in perfect order; but the nib had been put way out of adjustment. I then sent it to John Mottishaw, who reground it to a true extra-fine of extraordinary quality; and I have since used the pen daily. Well, this evening, the pen, which had been loaded with Mont

    Dating a Montblanc 4810

    My boyfriend's dad gave me a Montblanc Meisterstuck that had stopped working. I cleaned it and it works beautifully, of course. It has a serial number, which started in 1991, but it also says W Germany, which didn't exist after 1990. I did several Google searches and even searched the serial number, but couldn't find anything to help me date it. I'm really just curious, more than anything. If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. It does have the 14K bi-color nib. I apologize if the answer is here somewhere and I oveooked it. Thank you in advance for you

    Montblanc Boheme Rouge Ballpoint Pen.

    Dear Forum. I apologise in advance in case this is not for what the forum is meant for. I have been trying to convince my father that the Montblanc which was given to him as a present, not a long time ago, is actually a fake one, but he refuses to believe me. He has shown me uncountable tests proving that the pen is authentic [The material does glows in red(if we put a flashlight under the cap), the Montblanc peek/logo looks good, its serial number seems correct, and with high quality, the engravings like Pix(under), and Germany, are written on the clip and can be read

  23. Hi everyone - I've got a Montblanc Starwalker that's had the threads on the cap strip completely twice, with very little use. I sent it back for repair once, and am looking for a more reliable solution. The second time it happened, the person at the Montblanc store very smugly recommended that I don't pull the cap off and don't tighten it too much. Believe me, as much as this pen cost, I've been as careful as I can with it and the cheap plastic threads in the cap fail after a couple of months of normal daily use. Can anyone recommend what I should do?
  24. James Purdey & Sons Single Malt scented ink was released in 2018 by Montblanc as part of a series in collaboration with James A. Purdey, a gunmaker and hunting lifestyle brand. The ink surprised me! Single malt scented ink sounded at first like a (overpriced) gimmick and to some extend it is of course. But the color is a deep, beautiful orange-brown with amazing shading. Definitely a fall color which can be used in both a business environment (note taking) as well as for personal writing and correspondence. Be careful though, when opening the bottle or the pen cap the whisky scent is quite

    Montblanc Converters broken

    I’ve been using all week at work my Burgundy Classique (144R) with 18K nib. I have been using the piston converter to fill with ink. The older threaded converters that say Montblanc ink only. I notice that when I filled the converter (attached to nib) from the bottle that I got a bunch of bubbles, which was odd, but it filled up enough so into my pocket it went. Fast forward to today Friday, I needed a little more ink and when I opened the pen there was ink down the converter and in the barrel. After cleaning up the mess I checked the converter and found that it was not pulling a
