Montblanc x Fritz Schimpf Special Edition No. 3


Fritz Schimpf

Recommended Posts

We are very happy

to be able to announce that

on July 9th, 2022,

we will be launching our

third cooperation pen with Montblanc.

 

One week before, on July 2nd,

the new pen will be available

for pre-order in our online shop: 

https://www.fritz-schimpf.de/Marken/Montblanc/Montblanc-x-Fritz-Schimpf/.

We will start shipping on July 11th. 

 

This project started many months ago

when we received the first four prototype nibs

of our third Montblanc x Fritz Schimpf Special Edition.

After many long tests and discussions a very special nib has been created.

On May 10th,

the day of the grand inauguration

of the Montblanc Haus, 

we spent the day behind

this fascinating building test writing

the 100 nibs of our upcoming edition.

Now all of these nibs are waiting to be written...

 

Kind regards,

Fritz Schimpf 

 

PS. More information regarding the name and all the details will follow.

Hello @Fritz Schimpf,

 

thank you for the beautiful pictures. It looks like a very broad nib...maybe something like a 3B. I am very keen to see your new baby. Too bad I missed the Italic 100 and the expressive.

 

Cheerio,

Hello Karmachanic,

 

that's the line width of the first cooperation, the Italic 100. The nibs on the picture above look far broader than 0.7 mm.

 

Cheerio,

A 146 with a 0.7mm CI nib is very seriously tempting. It would border on irresistible. I haven't quite figured out which side of the border yet. 🤔

My  Bad.  Thank you.  Too bad for me, I could live with a 0.7 on a 146.  Maybe one day I'll wake up with a 146P B under my pillow.  I know just the person to transform it.

Hello Karmachanic,

 

don‘t worry :) I hope you can fulfill your wish of the 146 P :) I'll keep my fingers crossed for you

A 146 with an M nib could be reground to about a 0.7mm stub or CI by any nibmeister. These are widely available, including on the used market for around $250. A B nib (harder to find used of course) would be a starting point for a slightly wider stub or italic tip.

Yes. In fact, I have a 146 with a B nib that I had ground to CI. It is a wonderful pen for my everyday italic handwriting. But having a factory made MB italic nib would be pretty special.

~ @Fritz Schimpf: The black and white nib photo above is especially pleasing.

 

It was shown to a group of 15 and 16 year old high school students earlier today.

 

They were asked to identify what was shown in the image.

 

Several thought it was a kind of award statue.

 

Others imagined that it might have something to do with satellites.

 

One student asked if they were used to mix cosmetics.

 

The only student to recognize them as fountain pen nibs writes with Lamy, Waterman, and Pilot pens.

 

Terrific image! No doubt the pen itself will be a very special writing tool.

Dear Tom, thank you for your kind words and for your very interesting and a bit frightening anecdote.

Say, are those silver rings on the four prototype pens?

Are the nib units of the screw-in type, as on the recent 146 Calligraphy?

The Fritz Schimp webpage has been now updated for Pre-orders. It is a Special edition MB149 in Platinum with a smooth, very wide Italic nib. It can also write much smaller when the nib is turned 75 degrees.
