I wanted to close the week with a beautiful pen: Montblanc Meisterstück 144. This pen belongs to a friend of mine for over 20 years. He brougth the pen to me and said “This pen doesn’t work” and asked what to do. So I have to keep it for a while you know 😉 Now, it has been repaired, inked and returned to its owner. Let’s see how it was.
First of all, I have to say that, I am not a fan of two tone nibs. I prefer mono-tones. And this fountain pen has a mono-tone nib as in old Montblanc’s. It is a 14c gold nib. Very smooth and as you can see from the photos it is slightly flex.
One of the most surprising feature of Montblanc 144 is the cap and filling system. Unlike the regular screw cap Montblanc Meisterstücks, 144 has a snap on cap with a nice confidant click sound. And the filling system is not a piston filler, it is a cartridge/converter pen.
And one my favorite thing about this pen is the size. As a woman with rather small hands, Montblanc 146 and 149 is quite big for my taste. On the other hand, Montblanc 144 is not bigger than a Pilot 78G, even smaller. Frankly, I liked this pen. It is practical and I liked the nib. I hope I can find one in a mint condition.
Do you have a Montblanc pen? Or any Montblanc’s that made you say “I am gonna get you someday”?
