Condition and information:
An exceptional Montblanc Monte Rosa pen of the late 60s. There are many variants of the Monte Rosa line, some more elegant some more durable, this pen is a on the elegant side. These pens replaced the 042 and some 3XX models with the old torpedo shaped form factor, and since were targeted at the mid range market they were named Monte Rosa, i.e. the second highest peak on the Alps after Montblanc, Monte Rosa. The success of these mid price range Montblanc pens was so great at the time, that Montblanc at some point made more Monte Rosa pens then it did Montblanc pens. Made out of black precious resin, the signature Montblanc material which gives the pen a unique shine but also a protection as this material is hard to scratch or damage. The pen features chromed trimmings which makes for a stunning combination with the black body and cap. Due to it's length it has a perfect writing balance, grip, weight and feel in the hand. Montblanc signature star located on the top of the clip. There are very beautiful rhomboid shaped ink windows, and crisp imprints on the cap "Montblanc Monte Rosa". The pen is large, 135mm, one of the longest of the Monte Rosa pens, it takes a great amount of ink. Super smooth piston filling action with silicone cork. Easy to clean and maintain; removable nib unit with a simple unscrew action. The star of the show is the fully flexible nib which melts on the paper. The nib is elongated and slim thus with a very good viewing space. With this nib a slight pressure is needed to write bigger sizes, simply a stunning writer. The pen will write up to BB and even 3B if pressed more. The nib is suspended on a original ebonite feed and feed ring which provides for a great ink flow. One of the best vintage Montblanc Monte Rosa Pens all-time. The pen is in mint condition, with minimal to no signs of use, no scratches or cracks.
