  1. Joshua Pen Collector

    Montblanc Solitaire Platinum 149

    Greetings, Twenty-five years after seeing this model for the first time in a MB boutique, I was finally able to acquire one, used, on eBay. That was no small feat as it involved (a) finding one that was for sale (b) at a reasonable price, and (c) being financially positioned to make the investment. Since I have long scoured the Internet for videos showing the beautiful luster of this pen and never could find one, I am pleased to share pics from the unboxing here. I haven’t written with it yet as I’m pondering what nib tip to affix, perhaps a custom grind. It came with a medium

    Montblanc Solitaire Platinum 149

    Greetings, I also posted this message in the Introductions forum. Twenty-five years after seeing this model for the first time in a MB boutique, I was finally able to acquire one, used, on eBay. That was no small feat as it involved (a) finding one that was for sale (b) at a reasonable price, and (c) being financially positioned to make the investment. Since I have long scoured the Internet for videos showing the beautiful luster of this pen and never could find one, I am pleased to share pics from the unboxing here.

  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. This might come as a strange admission on a set of threads about solitaires but I’ve never been one to enjoy metal pens; in fact, I usually avoid(ed) them. Over the years pens with metal sections crept into use and I discovered to my surprise that they didn’t really bother me at all. I expected to have problems with the ‘slippery’ grip that is so often mentioned but found most to be fine and solid silver sections to be very pleasingly tactile and free of slippery menace. As I started to use other pens and had the opportunity to use pens owned by others I began to realise that the additional we

    Resin V. Solitaire

    I currently have a resin-exclusive collection, but I find myself increasingly drawn to the lustrous solitaire models - namely the stainless steel and platinum versions. Montblanc resin, while not exactly fragile, is of course more prone to scratches than steel. However, I consider the resin models more classy and symbolic of Montblanc heritage. For owners of both, which do you prefer and why?

    A Few Mb Questions

    Hi there, I have had this Mont Blanc pen for nearly 20 years and I've only started getting back into writing with it after 10+ years of neglect. I've moved around a hell of a lot in the last 10 years or so (a few different countries etc...) and a lot of my things are in storage. I have the box in storage but I can't get to it. I had a few questions, if anyone is kind enough to answer. 1) Does anyone know what size this is? I honestly don't remember the size at all from when it was given to me. I know the details are in the box but that's a few thousand miles away right now. 2) I think

  9. I recently purchased a new Montblanc 11738 fountain pen without a box or any papers. As far as I know and it looks, it is a 144SP sterling silver. What do you think about this pen? Although it's not a piston filler and being a little small in size, it seems to fit well in my hand when posted. I also can't see any differences from a 145 classic other than lacking threads on the barrel. Any info and comments deeply appreciated

    Where To Buy- Copenhagen

    Hi, my friend is on a trip to Copenhagen... he is staying in the ski petri hotel (@1172 kobenhavn, Denmark) he would have about 1 hour to spare so are there any good pen stores nearby where he may find montblanc solitaire series fountain pens... any and all help would be appreciated. thanks
  11. Hi, I have used Caran d'Ache, Waterman and Parker fountain pens over the years but I never had a chance to own a Montblanc. At a store, I came across with two pens (Montblanc Meisterstuck Solitaire Carbon & Steel Fountain Pens 5819 & 5827), which are both on 40% discount. To the best of my knowledge, 5819 is bigger and a piston filler, while 5827 is smaller and a converter. My knowledge about Montblanc pens is very limited so I kindly ask for your help. Like everyone, I know the 149, 146, 145 and such but I have no idea about these two pens I mentioned above. Is the 5819 the sa

    Montblanc Collection

    Hello Montblanc owners I recentlys tarted collecting Montblancs and was able to get some of them on ebay and one in Selfridges. I currently have a WE Schiller FP PoA Pavarotti FP I also have a nice generation rollerball and am waiting on 149 I know its a modest collection and I am aware there are people with completed sets here but I am always looking for new ones. So my main goal is to increase the collection but not overpay. I should mention I'm studying right now so don't have funds for overpaying. Thats what makes it even more appealing since I am constantly looking for deals. I was thi

    Solitaire With Colored Cap Top

    I like to share these pictures, Solitaire 146 with colored cap top. Red / orange, dark blue and dark green are available. All pens are gold plated brass and with the older nib-feed hull, so they are around from the end of 80´s. The sticker shows GERMANY; the clip W.GERMANY kind regards Max I like the red orange one :-)
  14. I occasionally come across pictures of a Solitaire that has this pattern. I always thought it was only available in a 'pure silver' 146 FP. So is the 144 version in this pattern ever an authentic pen?
  15. Those two obvious fake Solitaire style pens that sold on ebay.com 390795615993 and 321349585869 actually sold to the same buyer who has now received them and left feedback saying they are super rare and super nice. Still each to their own I suppose. Maybe he was Japanese as they arrived very quickly. However, I can't see his full ebay name in the feedback he left. Is that just me or are they always obscured even in feedback left or received? I know we can never see who they are during bidding, but I thought we could see them when they leave feedback.
  16. I have a Montblanc sterling silver solitaire rollerball that is at least 20 years old. It is in immaculate condition. The 925 stamp is at the top of the pen not at the center of the barrel. Is there any collector value in this pen?
  17. First off, my apology for adding yet another "is this fake" topic. The MB pen in question is a 18k Boheme Solitaire Gold Citrine with grid pattern that is listed on Ebay. I would like an advice if the boheme gold came in a grid design. I tried google as well as searching the FPN forum and nothing came up. (Well, google came up with other Ebay listing--which is not helpful at all.) The link below to the Ebay item: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=370797221001 Any MB collectors out there own such type of pen in grid pattern, or is it just another creative product of the coun
