Martele Legrand Fountain Pen


simon73

Recommended Posts

It is a good pen (a tad heavy) but makes every writing occasion a somewhat special experience. I had a chance of purchasing a barley sterling but ended up not doing so because of the diamond on the clip. In the end, I kept returning to the Martele and finally purchased it after it was just discontinued. Here's mine resting in the ultimate pen accessory--two pen trays built into the writing desk.

Does Montblanc have a record of bringing old styles (like the Martelé) back after a few years, or do you think that gone means "gone"?

 

Based on current patterns of their merchandising and design, I would say gone means " will not return to production." But don't be discouraged. These are regular production pens and because Montblanc's are sold at pen stores as well as boutiques, chances of you getting a pen is still quite high because Montblanc's production numbers each year are prodigious.

Just FYI on the barley silver, if the pen is new from an AD you can get a swap to a clip without a diamond for free. used pens are a different story...

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

I’m not discouraged at all, I’ve owned one for a number of years. I was just curious. 🙂

 

It remains one of my favourite pens.

      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
