Montblanc Bp Using Parker Style Refill?



Crackerdog

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever heard of a Montblanc BP pen that will not accept a Montblanc BP refill?

 

I have a potential customer that insists her pen is authentic, but after sending me an image of her original refill it appears to be a Parker Style BP refill.

 

I hate to burst her bubble & tell her she may not have an authentic pen. Especially if there is a possibility that some of the pen models may use this refill!

I never got one of the Parker's to work in my 734...The MB refill that fit my pen had a round top.

I only have one MB ball point...I don't know if they wised up on other ball point pens.

 

Perhaps some Parker refills work.

 

I had a P-75 set, and the mechanical pencil, would not work the Parker refills I tried in it. I did not look to see if there were more than one kind of Parker Refill.

 

However, by sheer chance I tried a similar Schneider refill in that silver P-75 MP, and now I have a good functioning ball point.

 

I can't quite read that refill, are you sure it is a Parker and not a Schneider? They look like two egg twins.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

The lady that has it says that the refill is marked "Montblanc". I think she has a counterfeit pen because I have never heard of a Montblanc pen accepting a standard sized refill such as a Parker Style ballpoint.

 

The name Parker Style doesn't imply that it is a Parker brand refill, merely that it is a "Parker Style" refill. Many companies make refills that are called "Parker Style", it refers to the size, length, & dimensions of the refill.

It's counterfeit! The lady definately has a faked Montblanc pen with a faked Montblanc refill.

Montblanc never made ballpoint pens where you can use Parker style refills in.

Thank you so much to everyone for confirming my suspicions! I have seen a jump in people seeking refills for their Montblanc pens that don't seem to use a genuine "Montblanc" refill!

I'm sure many here already know of the market for "unauthorized" MB product, but just a fair warning to many out there, new and old alike, that the quality level of the counterfeits is becoming increasingly good. In my boutique alone this month I've seen six counterfit MB ballpoints, and to be honest, most people would never catch the little details that call them out as fake.

 

First thing, the clips are "softer" than MB originals, they flex more. Also, the fit around the top is not 100%, it has a slight taper that makes them stick out some. Second, the cap top (or snowcap as many call it) is made with a white metal thread, MB originals are brass (also, the fakes are now being made with the star actually inlayed, just like the real deal from MB!!!).

 

Twist mechanisms, look just like the real deal on MB (main way to tell quickly is the snowcap is usually glued in on its threads, making it hard to remove), but on the black resin bodies with gold trim (only fakes I've encountered so far) it uses a white metal twist, MB is brass (Real MB platinum trim and solitaires will use a plated twist, so that it matches the trim).

 

Quick way to tell at a glance, check the serial number. The fakes have them just like the real MB, but they are not straight, they tend to drop off at a slight angle.

 

The fakes can actually accept real MB parts...so be warned! Just thought I would share some info with you all...if I can get some pictures next time one comes through, I will share that with you all as well.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
