    Treat that as a Mont Blanc special edition. I'd fully expect the barrel to be wonderfully tactile...hand checquered walnut sounds awesome. But not $3500 worth of awesome.

    And yeah, apparently the family members didn't want to continue in the business some decades back so they sold to Richemont. Not surprising for this kind of company, especially in such an extremely narrow, specialized market.

    No. A Montblanc (or any luxury pen) isn't going to make your chicken-scratch any more legible. Unless you're a pen obsessed weirdo (and some of us are) a meisterstuck looks no different from a $1 Chinese disposable. If you want to buy a LE as "art" you can use and appreciate, sure, go ahead. If you want to impress clients/your boss/women/internet trolls a pen is just a waste of money.

    Montblanc does have very nice fountain pen ink in a variety of colors and the price isn't any more expensive than Pilot's Iroshizuku premium inks.

    I have a few and enjoy them.

    They don't correct my poor penmanship, but they are fun to write with.

    Of course not. MB makes a good pen. Recognizable and presentable. Suitable as gifts. But best? There are plenty of options that cost more, are better made, or offer dimensions and features unavailable within the MB portfolio.

    Funny this thread should pop up the same week we just picked up a Mont Blanc pen for my wife. Plenty of people have already answered, but I'll chime in as well. I don't think it's that special. To me, it feels pretty dumb to spend $450 or whatever it was on a pen, but my wife figures it will make her look spiffy at work, so there you are. It's a status symbol. I personally don't find much difference in writing quality between the MB and a nice Pilot pen, but then again, I'm a caveman who probably just can't appreciate the difference.

    IMO no. I prefer the ST Dupont offerings. Especially in Chinese lacquer etc.
