Thank you for sharing this information with us.

My vision is limited, so perhaps I'm not seeing accurately.

In the lower image, the barrel appears to have a seam on each side, almost like stitching on the left side.

In the upper image, despite being larger, there doesn't appear to be anything like the seam or stitching.

Perhaps I'm imagining something that isn't really there.

The nib engraving in the upper image looks different than the dromedary on the nib in the lower left-hand corner.

I work and live near the Old Silk Road, therefore this has special interest to me.

I'm guessing the lower picture with the inspiration is not of the final actual pen but of a model, looks like the stitching ended up in the cap.

I'm just saying I like the design but not the price.

I'm still having a hard time understanding what the pen looks like but it does look impressive. Is the norm for MB to also release a less expensive version of the same pen? I know they've done that with some LE but not sure if that's common.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Impressive design! It looks heavy. Imagine how many details someone in the know would pick up looking at this pen... I love the little blue globe. Since Montblanc rarely uses wood, it's interesting to see what they did.

Talk about maximum return on investment.

Damaskus steel, nice but nothing rare or special about it.

Red wood, different, but cheaper still.

Lapis, semi precious gem valued at $50 tops.

A bit of gold here and there valued at US$ 2k.

 

Not to my taste. There is to much going on, and at almost US$ 34k, anyone ho buys this must not be playing with a full deck of cards.

Plus the swiveling compas cap is the weakest link. It's just begging to get broken.

For some of our fellow members here money is nothing more than paper it is printed on. If you are rich why not spend it on things you find beautiful?

I'm not saying they shouldn't. I'm just being judgmental of whomever does.

Not trying to be an arse, but...

Judgemental because you can't afford it?

 

Anyhow, pens, cars, watches and so on do not cost as much as they are sold... There are often intangibles added on. Such is the case for the Apple logo, or the Montblanc star, or design, and the list goes on.

 

I think this pen to be gorgeous and applaud they who get it and use it.

unfourtunately, high artistry homage to marco polo 69 is already sold out..

I know which boutique/country that still can provide one. If you're seriously interested I can make an introduction.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
