PFM 5

Here is my Montblanc rotation team (The Oscar Wilde is visiting Germany due to piston issues). The one that have gotten more use over the years is the Agatha, followed by the 149 and Dumas.

I find my 147 seems to get the most pocket time of my Montblanc pens closely followed by one of the 234½s.

At the moment are my two solitaires. Just felt like a change for heavier pens.

Resin chaps are sleeping for the winter, they should wake up in the spring.

My first post!

 

I've been on a bit of a Montblanc spree lately. No fountain pens yet, I'm still deciding which fountain if any, I want from Montblanc.

Few of these are no longer with me but sorting out which inks in what was a tad time consuming :)

That 136 is a beauty!

 

Jose

Thanks! It has an amazing OB nib on it. One of my most heavily used pens.

A large bottle of Hitchcock red! Nice! Very envious.

 

Both fine hordes, gentlemen.

 

Enjoy.

I like the look of the 136.

Looks similar in size to the 146 (which I have).

 

Are they easy to come by?

Rough price?

 

Thanks

Thanks! A 136 is quite smaller than a modern 146, but compared to a vintage 146 it's about the same length and a little slimmer.

 

This is one of the transitional models from the late 1940s when they were designing the 14x series to replace it. 136s aren't terribly hard to find, they pop up for sale on eBay a decent amount. Reputable sellers like penboard.de usually have them, as well. Prices range a bit in my experience. I bought a wartime 136 unrestored for $500, restoration was like $50 or so. This 136 cost me about $700 dollars, while two of my others cost over a $1,000 each.

 

I hope that helps.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
