you can feel the very slight ridge of this slider on your thumb, but it actually gives you better traction. your forefinger will be touching the section threads themselves. it's a comfortable hold.

 

Also, does the thinnest part of the pen---that skinny section in the middle of the barrel---ever get in your way when writing? Can you feel the protruding top and bottom edges, I mean?

 

Thanks for sharing. =D

This thread caused me to buy the MB Historical!! I've been kinda watching them since 2006, liked them too, but never had the obsession with them until I read this thread and saw the wonderful pics. So, I bought one and sent if off to MB to get an EF nib :D. Waiting for it to return from MB B). Now i just have to figure out how to pay off the credit card :(!

Beautiful pen. One of our favorite and customers love it. The only part I wished was that they should have made it as cartridge/converter. But still it was a hot seller with a vintage Montblanc logo to complement it!

I've always admired the unusual design of this pen, very handsome.

And the star shaped/snowcap breather hole, on the nib is a lovely touch.

 

But...cartridges?!?

From a company that makes some of the best piston fillers in the world?

Crushing mistake!

(Were cartridges even invented 100 years ago?)

ha ha, glad to have been your enabler ;) you'll love it--i now use it quite often, alongside my agatha christie (which looks humongous beside it).

 

@CS388--i share your disappointment about the choice of a cartridge filling system, but i've rationalized this by telling myself that it's practically the only cartridge filling one among all the pens in my daily rotation, so it'll be a good one to bring along on those trips where i can't possibly carry a bottle of ink with me, or can't find ink on the road.

Thanks, penmanila. You make a good point.

 

Just looked at your pictures again. It's a beautiful set of pens. Really striking.

An ideal daily combination, too.

Congratulations!

 

Enjoy in good health.

i've posted this pic on another thread, but here's that pen again with one of my pocket watches from the 1920s--i thought they went well together ;)

This is one of my favorite pens. I have tried taking it out of rotation a couple of times since I got mine (thanks to Bry!) a few years ago, but it always comes back into rotation.

 

 

I had the nib swapped for an EF, and I prefer cartridges, anyway. This is a great little pen! Especially when taking notes (such as in museums), as there is no need to cap the pen; just retract the nib until needed. Retracting helps in preventing hard starts.
