Need Help In How Can I Find And Install A Small Part For A Montblanc Slimline.


Recommended Posts

Dear Pen aficionados,

I have a pen that is missing a cover [disk shaped, about 1/4" diameter] to the very top of the barrel, what looks like a black and white logo, not unlike the one on the other end but the missing one is somewhat smaller. I am attaching three photos, one a close up where it would go [it took me many attempts to take using an 11x mag lens in front of a smartphone lens], another [which I took from this website from the page showing a similar pen but a rollerball pen with link at https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/69972-montblanc-slimline-noblesse-vintage-rollerball-pen/

] is a picture of showing how the two ends should look, and I point to the end that has the missing black and white logo disk, and another is a picture of the complete pen showing the two ends with the one barrel end missing the logo.


I know the pen a MontBlanc fountain pen, but I don't know the exact model name or model number, but from searching around, the closest match was one being shown and sold at Ulugtekin.com and here is the link at http://www.ulugtekin.com/pen/Ulugtekin%20Montblanc/Vintage/Montblanc-Slimline-Fountain-Pen/Montblanc-Slimline-Fountain-Pen.htm


So the piece missing is a plastic disk that fits inside the barrel end, but I am not sure if it comes with a screw or if it is shoved in place. I wasn't able to unscrew the beveled end, and it didn't try disassembly of the barrel to see if the end could be unscrewed.


So any clues, suggestions, links, steps to replace the part would be greatly appreciated.

If I read your pictures and description correctly, you are just missing the white star. The metal surrounding the star (that it sits on) is still in place. There is a hole that the base of the star (a very short tube) should fit into.




If so, I had a pen that lost the bottom star. That left an unfilled hole in the bottom of the pen.


The way I repaired mine was to contact someone in Germany (I think Tom Westerich, but its been a long time). He sold me the back end of a different pen (broken) with the same star. I had to break apart the plastic of the donor pen, rescue the star and glue it to my pen. Kind of hack surgery, but the result looked like the original (at least to my eye).


Hope that helps. Finding the part is the tough part. You might ask around here in the "brand focus - Montblanc" section, or one of the German pen boards.


You could also try contacting Montblanc repair, though I doubt they have parts for older pens. Worth a try though.


It could be a long search.....

Sounds like you understand my situation, and that you had the same problem, and that the part can be taken from a pen that no longer works and used for parts like you did long time ago. So I will search all over the web and call around. Thanks for your help. This place is awesome.

      @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.
