    Montblanc Noblesse Loose Cap

    Loose cap is a pretty common issue on Montblanc Noblesse, as for many other pens with a plastic snap inner cap. Plastic inner caps usually have a shorter life than the ones with metal mechanism, as they become loose over years of use by the friction of capping and uncapping. Fixing this issue can be not so easy. A fast search in the web gave back a range of proposed solutions: a single layer of electrical tape around the bottom of the inner cap, as it could pull back the inner cap in shape; a layer of Teflon tape on the clutch ring on the section (with an high risk of inner cap cracking); a little piece of cellophane tape inside the cap (with or without silicon grease to increase the adhesion); a thin layer of superglue or epoxy inside the bottom of the inner cap (a dangerous no-return method, in my opinion) in order to increase the grip coupling; a drop of boiling water into the cap, in order to soften and re-shaping the inner cap. Discarding the #4 because irreversible, and the #5 because too uncertain, I applied all the first three methods, but without success. So I planned to experiment a personal appoach, which brings together some of the theoretical assumptions of the methods #1 to #3. After unscrewing the topper with the MB star, I released the inner cap and clip (figure #1). Then I put a ring of a thermo-shrinkable tube (5 mm in height, 9.7 mm in diameter) around the bottom of the inner cap (figure #2). Using a lighter, I quickly heated the inner cap together with the thermo-shrinkable ring. The heat softened the inner cap plastic and at the same time shrank the ring (figure #3), reshaping the inner cap. Then I gently removed the shrunk ring (figure #4) and finally put the reshaped inner cap into the cap, screwing on the MB star cap top. The cap clicks nicely and firmly, now. Sincerely, I cannot predict how long the reshaping will last, but surely I will report the long term outcome of this matter.

    Montblanc Noblesse

    Hello: I have a Montblanc Gold Plated fountain pen. I have seen these listed as 20 K or 24 K Gold Plated. Did Montblanc make two gold plated versions, or just one, and if one, which one? Thanks in advance.

    Montblanc Noblesse

    Hello: I have a Montblanc Noblesse Gold Plated fountain pen. I have seen these listed as 20 K or 24 K Gold Plated. Did Montblanc make two gold plated versions, or just one, and if one, which one? Thanks in advance.
  4. Hey guys, I managed to ruin the feeder on one of my favorite Montblanc pens. It is similar to this one: https://arum24.es/product/montblanc-noblesse-oblige-raj1556/?lang=en 1) I have no experience in repairing pens. Would changing the feeder be a doable task for me? 2) What tools to I need? I can only find 146/149 - series remover tools on eBay. This is a 522 nib. Thanks a load in advance! /Law
  5. From my father's pen collection - Montblanc Noblesse Mechanical Pencil. It has a push-button mechanism and uses 0.9mm leads. Can someone help me with the model # and date? Also, how do I tell the K of gold used? I understand it is rare due to black star on pusher. Is that true?
  6. Hi there! First post! So apologies if it's in the wrong section. Gotta say, love the site and everyone seems really friendly, which is always good. Anyway, about my post, I'm looking at the following Montblanc Noblesse, but am unsure as to wether the pen is genuine or not, and how much is a reasonable price to pay for one of these, as I'm relatively new to all this. The link has a good few pictures from all different angles. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171257114157?ssPageName=STRK:MEBOFFX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1432.l2649 If you could let me know, as it's something I'd be looking to purchase should everything be well and good. If not, could anyone recommend a place to look for one? Many thanks, Tom

    Nib Material Of Noblesse Oblige

    Hi All Been a member for a while but this is my first post here. By chance I found this pen on ebay. I saw there is nib plating loss even though the nib was engraved "585". I always think engraving "585" means solid 14K gold instead of "14K gold plated". Can anyone please correct me if I am wrong? Thank you. Jeffrey
