I used to collect black fountain pens with gold trim. There’s something about the look of them I adore. Also, I’ve got an old hand injury so I like broad, ‘fat’ pens that don’t give me any pain while writing. If I had to choose one fountain pen I’d pick the one that I had stolen and because I’m a pensioner now, I can’t afford to replace.
It’s the Montblanc Meisterstück 149 Fountain Pen
Nice and ‘thick’; a good hefty weight but beautifully balanced with the cap posted and a glorious smooth flowing nib with just enough ‘grip’ to good paper to put you in touch with every stroke. At around AUD$1300.00 I don’t think I’ll ever have another one but it’s nice to dream… Cheers, BH
