I received an email from P.W.Akkerman Den Haag announcing they will be selling various older Montblancs.

Breathe. Take one step at a time. Don't sweat the small stuff. You're not getting older, you are only moving through time. Be calm and positive.

I get their emails because I was part of a group buy from them a few years ago.  Mizgeorge's link gets you to the pens on their site.

Including a mint Hemingway! I'm surprised it hasn't gone already.

 

It has. I sniped it within like an hour of receiving the e-mail. Can't wait! Now I just have to sell off a bunch of other pens to make up for the financial hit....

Congrats. Of course you have, who else. I am quite envious of your collection by now, even for just the few pieces I know you have...I was looking at the Hemingway and hesitated on it, it's a lot of money, but at least now I can sleep better knowing it's going to good hands.

Thanks :)

It's nothing really special, though, compared to some of the good folks here who really got the goods. I'm sorry to have beat you to the Hemingway this time - there'll be another popping up somewhere I'm sure.

Received my Faulkner over the weekend. Looks wonderful. Will ink it and try it out soon.

Congratulations! I have had a Faulkner for a number of years. Very stylish and dependable writer.

Waffling between Voltaire, Dostoyevsky, and saving over $1000...

 

I would love to pick up that Cervantes set, but I also have a MB calligraphy coming too

      @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

      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.
