Well, in German the material is called "Edelstahl" - with "stahl" meaning steel and "edel" meaning precious, noble or kingly: "royal" in other words. The name was created 1911 in an era that liked romantic names (just like "precious resin" which is a literally translation from "Edelharz").

 

In fact they could just have called it stainless steel, but punching it into a Google Translator or something of that sort is so much more fun for the marketing guys!

 

It's my laugh of the day. Thank you!

Sorry, but the "Royal" denotes the use of diamonds just like on other Montblanc "Royal" pens and not the use of stainless steel as the pen's main material. Therefore it's not a bad translation of the German word "Edelstahl" for stainless steel.

 

Also it's the diamonds which rise the price that much.

 

Cheers ;-)

Thank you for the information! Very much appreciated.

 

Still I would have expected a different word order. The way it is named I get the impression (and it seems I was not the only one) that "royal" connects to "steel" and not to pen/Montblanc as an indicator for series.

So I still smile about it...

Greetings,

Michael

Yes I was just about to say the same thing. It's model really not the material.

I keep thinking about selling some of my pens but all that happens is I keep acquiring more!

Never understood diamonds being put on stainless steel.

 

Gold? yes.Platinum? go on then. Silver? Nooo. Steel? :lticaptd: you are trying to hard sir

Money may not make you happy but I would rather cry in a Rolls-Royce

 

The true definition of madness - Doing the same thing everyday and expecting different results......

As a person who does not see the point of having a pen that does not get used.... I use all my pens, even special ones.

 

Imagine losing or misplacing one of these.... or if a coworker walks away with it. lol.

 

I had a fit when I misplaced my $250 Parker Sonnet silver ciselle pen, although I think it was the cat that knocked it into the garbage can.... I would lose it if it was one of these.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
