Condition and information:

This is one of the biggest Montblanc pens of it's time, both by length and thickness, the pen is 13.5mm thick at the cap and 136mm in length, posted at 157mm! This is also the rarest pen of the 3XX line and one of the best build quality. This is the first original 3-44 production, with the "3-44G" imprint on the turning knob instead the the later models where the imprint was on the cap. The "G" stands for "Glanz" meaning "Shine" in German for the shining finish this pen features. This pen is a true masterpiece, very big, just slightly shorter then 146 Meisterstuck, but almost same thickness. This is the post war Montblanc, and almost impossible to find in this shape. The pen features a very rare and beautiful light blue to violet color elongated ink window, with the special feature which allows for the ink level to be read even if the cap is closed, the ink window is still visible. Perfectly clean and shiny pen. The piston is smooth and takes up an enormous amount of ink. The piston features an 8 edged star shape with brass inlay and brass spiral, which makes for one extremely tough piston which can never fail. Some later 344 and 342 models feature plastic piston, unlike this one, the earlier version with brass components. The nib the real joy of this pen. It is huge, almost 2.5cm long, pure 14K 585 solid gold, very smooth on the paper writing without scratching. The nib is fully flexible, with a nice curve and a proper "344", rated M but it will write up to triple broad BBB - broad if pressed gently while writing. "M" imprint located on the turning knob, and the old Montblanc Mountain Range logo located on the side of the cap. Since the nib is M, on the side strokes it acts as a stub nib, (italic), so it produces some of the best possible writing. The nib is suspended on a huge, ski-slope low profile 1&1/2 inch ebonite feed with great flow for such a ink thirsty pen, and huge ebonite feed ring. Such feeds provide great low writing and viewing angle. Only a vintage Montblanc pen can produce such beautiful writing. A true vintage masterpiece, in a absolute mint condition, no scratches or cracks, minimal signs of use, crisp imprints. Extremely rare Montblanc, extremely rare condition, featuring everything a true Montblanc legend should feature.
