Most Mont Blanc pens are coveted for their power in the boardroom. Business people around the world recognize the status and quality of a white star peaking out of someone's pocket, bag or briefcase. However, this Mont Blanc 146 will be coveted for an additional reason: IT HAS A 14k GOLD NIB. This is a much earlier 146 from either the 1970s or early '80s! The monotone 14k nib is highly prized by users and collectors for its superiority over the more modern 18k gold nibs. These nibs are more easily made flexi and otherwise customized. This nib has no flex and writes a very smooth medium-broad line. The pen is in great working order. We filled and tested it for more than a week and didn't find any leaks. Piston filler works smoothly. No cracks, and in excellent condition with minimal wear! Much larger than a Classique but more manageable than a 149's girth. 14.2cm capped.
