Condition and information:
The Montblanc 146 Meisterstuck/Masterpiece model has always been one of the flagship Montblanc pens. Its the second largest pen Montblanc makes, second only to the 149 model. The pen embodies everything Montblanc stands for, amazing build quality, stunning timeless design and reliability. This pen model has been produced since the early 50's, and had undergone numerous revisions in the materials, filling system, nib and feed design, but never a overall or even significant form-factor change, the size and shape is nearly identical to its original design from 1950s. This pen here is considered the 3rd and by some the 4th generation of the 146 model. Made in early 1980s, this is one of the most reliable and refined pens until that period, with silicone cork and a unique light purple ink window. This provides for a very smooth piston action with great ink capacity, once filled it can last for months. Many collectors will say that these pens are probably the best in the world, with amazing timeless form factor and unmatched performance. The pen is made out of thick precious black resin, super shiny and scratch resistant, but also provides a great protection from cracks or damage. The pen fits perfectly in the hand, its heavy which provides for a good grip, feel and writing balance. The nib is amazing, large, and unlike later models with duo-tone color, this one is solid 14K M size yellow gold. The best part and rare in these nibs is its flexibility. The nib is already a BB tipped, but will write with ease and just the slightest pressure 3B and even wider! Performs very smoothly and very precisely with perfect ink flow, since the nib is suspended on a original 80s ebonite feed, unfortunately one of the last Montblanc ebonite feeds before they transferred to plastic feeds. The pen is in mint condition with minimal to no signs of use, no scratches or cracks. A true Montblanc Masterpiece pen, simply the perfect fountain pen.
