Mont Blanc Alfred Hitchcock Vs 149


vikrmbedi

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the nib of AH is equal to nib of 146 or 149. (in my knowledge, very few pens have 149 size nibs in montblanc...like the Hemmingway and dumas )

 

so it is a shout out to all the members to post some comparative shots (comparing nib size, width, height with and without cap etc) of both the pens together.

 

regards

 

Vikram

They both have perfect, glass-smooth, juicy nibs.

The look of the nibs is quite different.

no doubt , the nibs would be good...but the purpose of the post is to get a comparison pictures of the montblanc Alfred Hitchcock, 146 and 149.

If I am not mistaken the Hitchcock uses a gussied up 146 nib. Or to put it exactly, a montblanc -#6 sized nib

There are really nice shots of the pen and its nib to be found on the MB site.

 

i have visited the montblanc website. there are really nice shots of the Hitchcock here on the forum too...but I wanted to see comparison shots between the 3 pens, in general to compare pen sizes as well... actually the nearest boutique is a good 800 kms away from me and I was wondering if it is worth making the trip.

I own a Hitchcock and the Nib is very similar to a 146 (in size) but it does write better in my opinion (or it simply had a better finish).

Just came across this thread as I was looking on the MB site at the AH pen, and what struck me was the photography on the site,very dramatic but poor on detail especially of the nib. I've seen some fantastic photos on this forum, some very talented individuals who would give the MB marketing people a run for their money.

 

Nice pen,vikrmbedi, I love the design (except for the clip,it's just not to my taste,although I know many members love it)

hi, thank you for your comments.... the thing is, if you look at it as a knife...you would see a knife and dislike it. but I look at it as a vintage style riveted clip....(with a deadly secret... : ) )

it is one of the few pens that are actually more brilliant in actual life....no one can capture its true beauty. (just my opinion)

 

 

The Hitchcock pocket clip its brilliant !

I prefer the 149

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

The most (IMHO) remarkable thing about the Hitch is the feeling that it becomes part of my fist while writing.

 

And I usually like light pens that post. Go figure..

Norman Bates has said something very similar.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
