Well, hello, there. What an interesting way to start the year, fountain-pen-wise – meeting a Montblanc I’ve never come across before.
This is a Montblanc Noblesse. It was available from the late ’70s to ’80s.
The pen has a slimline design popular during that period.
The Montblanc white star is on the cap, as usual. The nib of this particular pen is an 18k Fine. The gold cap band is engraved with the words “Montblanc Noblesse”.
The filling system is a converter. As you can see, this one’s pristine. Never been inked. *heartbeat*
It came with a bottle of Montblanc Emerald Green ink, a color that has been discontinued.
Filling this vintage pen for the first time is a fantastic way to start the year.
The nib is a nail without a hint of spring, writes buttery-smooth, and simply glides over paper.
This gem of a Montblanc is not mine, but I am glad to have met it and been the one to fill it and write with it for the first time. A distinct honor, I must say.
