    Montblanc Skeleton Blue Hour

    Last wednesday I got a mail from Dennis of La Couronne du Comte in Tiburg: " The blue skeleton was in the house!" Well Montblanc took us by surprise, it wasn't expected before september. You can imagine how I spend this saturday. Driving 70 km to Tilburg to admire Montblanc's latest beauty. And a beauty it is, the ice blue - platinum combination surpasses the red gold - grey combination of the 90th anniversary skeleton by miles. The strict geometric design of the platinum nib is just outrageous. The decision was quickly made, after a few months of display in Tilburg, it will be joining the 90th anniversary skeleton and the rest of the 149 gang. For those who can't go to Tilburg, I took some snaps with the iphone.
  4. Sorry to those of you who have been around here a while and have read an abundance of posts. The apology is because I have not been able to find a post about these two pens, the Waterman Edson and the Visconti 14k Skeleton Demo, pitted against each other. Thus, the reason for this post is to engage in friendly discussion about which is better to purchase. Below are some details about each of them to help with the decision. Both pens are the same price (within about 20 dollars of each other) from my particular retailer. Additionally, I am a loyal customer and buy most of my pens from him. This has allowed me to work out deals with him and the winner of these two pens will be a part of a deal. The pens are roughly $450 US, or lower if the negotiating goes more my way. The Visconti comes with a M nib and the Edson is a B nib which I would send in to exchange with a M unless someone delivers a solid argument. The Visconti has caught my eye because of the demonstrator barrel and the unique skeletal design. I also do not own a Visconti pen, but I do have one piston-filled pen, which is a Stipula Ventidue 22 (although it has problems as they all do). The Edson caught my eye, because that is just what that pen does to people. I also own a Waterman Phileas and a Waterman Carene, which are both personal favorites. The Carene is a sentimental gift from my father and also is one of my two favorite pens, currently tied with a Cross Verve. The Edson is definitely a pen I want to own at some point, just not entirely sure about right now. The next is some information about me personally to help with the discussion. I have personally written with steel, titanium, and 18k gold nibs. I think the titanium flex is unique, but I write so softly that flex or spring rarely make a difference to me (with the exception of the Titanium because that flex is extreme even for soft writers). My gold nibs are definitely my favorite with the exception of the Phileas and I prefer a moderately heavy pen. The Cross Verve is an exceptional writer that I love and keep in constant rotation with my Carene. These are my two favorites with the Phileas and my Schaeffar Legacy Heritage as the runners up. When the Carene and Verve are being cleaned, these two step in. The fifth in the running, which is used occasionally for light writing, is my Cross C Series. This pen would be number 3, but it has some pretty severe ink starvation problems that I haven't had a chance to send out to get fixed, yet. I hope all this information is helpful and that you all produce friendly, helpful, and informative comments. Thanks in advance, Tim P.S. Both are NOS
  5. Last night, I was dreaming-up unique ideas for TWSBI designs, and I hit upon a concept that merges two of my favorite pen designs into one, while remaining truly TWSBI. I would love to see a skeletonized TWSBI fountain pen. What do I mean? Contemplate for a moment the Montblanc Skeleton 333: http://40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kynrh6gLt31qbndmho1_1280.jpg Now contemplate how the TWSBI Diamond 580 or Diamond 580 AL would look with latticework like that, wrapped around perhaps a round (not necessarily Diamond-pattern) barrel, of the same chrome metal as the furniture on other TWSBI pens. http://www.stilografica.it/writable/Penne/TWSBI/TWSBI%20Diamond%20580%20AL%20Clear%20Demo%20Fountain%20Pen%20-%20Penna%20Stilografica.jpg Certainly, it would make the barrel thicker, but perhaps no thicker than a TWSBI Micarta barrel. Thoughts? I would love to see a render, if someone has the technical know-how to put one together.

    Jean Todts One Off Skeleton.

    For his 10th anniversary at la Scuderia, Michael Schumacher offered Jean Todt a unique Montblanc Skeleton. I could not find any picture of this pen. Any ideas?
  7. Hello FPN, its been awhile since I updated anything... But I recently made a purchase that could not go quietly! I must admit I absolutely love my Visocnti pens and have been flirting with the idea of adding one more... They have massive ink capacity (double reservoir), I love the way they write, and they have that Italian flair (yes, some are a bit too much...but once in awhile they produce pens with the golden balance between pizzazz and utilitarian, the result is just magic!) So.. I finally pulled the trigger Incoming VERY soon to my stable: Visconti Skeleton, Carbon fiber! (LE of 22) Please help me celebrate! (will definitely post pictures once I open it up, maybe even a review) Cheers! Michael
