References For Montblanc Pen History


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for reference websites for Montblanc fountain pens. It seems like what I've found so far is very scattered. Is there a good location for the history of MontBlanc Pens. I'm particulary looking for a break down of what pen was made when and what each pens characteristics and specs were.

First, welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell. And nope, no such site exists. A few though do offer some information.


The PenBoard.de database has lots of information.


Maxpens.de also has lots of historical models if you scroll down.


This site has a fairly accurate listing of some models.

Gotta love the design of it:)best of it gotta love the design.It seem like a good reference however, they dont tell where they found the information so resources are missing.

I recommend you should find th resources if you are doing project and need resources.

Apart from the sites mentioned, which do a great job of synthesizing information from different databases, I like to go to primary sources myself - it's just fun. Check out this FPN thread for a list of MB catalogues and repair manuals from the past (read all the way through the thread for additional links). https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/180508-montblanc-1969-catalog/

      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

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
