Two Mont Blanc-Y Questions

Recommended Posts

Firstly.....and hoping it's ok to post this( I always seem to be asking that....) I saw this( won't put any detail other than pic).....and having been bitten by the ripoff bug before, I wonder....is it real?

 

The second isn't a question as such....just a drool.......

 

Two pics of the "is it genuine" followed by one of the drool.....well, not a photo of my actual drool - that would not be A Good Thing....a bit of pen porn.....

I am so wary of MBs where I dont know the seller or the full provenance, I know someone in Singapore who says that he can buy a replica MB. any MB other than piston filled pens, that would fool all but the most expert.

 

The red heritage looks dramatic doesnt it - they are so cumbersome to use though, an MB employee described them to me as 'impossible'.

A friend of mine purchased a couple of MB copies from Aliexpress...they are indeed remarkable copies at about tenUSD each!

Thanks, Beechwood.

 

I have a song line earworming me......

Runs,

 

How do they do when using them?

The pics of the Boheme are kind of small, so it's difficult to provide an answer one way or the other about its authenticity. A couple of questions pop to mind:

- Where is it being sold and roughly for how much? (you can say where and/or PM the link, but DO NOT PUT IN A LINK IN THE THREAD - PER FPN RULES)

- Is there a gemstone in the clip?

- Is the Boheme the retractable version or the non-retractable version?

 

These might help us give you some better advice...

If the Boheme is the retractable version, cartridge only, then I think you are safe to assume it's authentic. I have only ever seen fake Bohemes with converters.

 

This one does look authentic though.

 

The box that the Boheme is in looks authentic to me. A nice tightly closed slot for the pen to be pushed down into

Yeah that Boheme is genuine. The "blind cap" had an indent to it and the fakes don't have that.

      @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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
