    That's OK, the Montblanc makes up for it. Nice score! Looks like it was well loved.

    Have you tried filling it? The last one of those I used had a really soft, springy nib. And smooth!
     
  6. yea when i stopped in the bittner pen shop in carmel they filled it for me when they were showing me how it worked. i thought the end cap came off. i didnt realize it worked like a push button by twisting the end cap. they showed me he pelican demonstrator which was cool cuz i got to see how it worked.

    the nib is kinda springy like u mentioned. i really like the way it writes. i just need to work on y cursive. i havent written in cursive since high school.
     
  7. What a gorgeous pen. Enjoy and keep practicing.
     
  8. Nice find! I've been going to the wrong kind of flea market!
     
  9. This is, primarily, a shaving forum. We understand.

    Lookin' good!
    The flex or semi flex nibs on the early MB pens are nice.
    I have a 320 that has a semi flex nib.
    Great stuff to write with.

    Nice pen. I'm definitely not going to the right flea markets. All I usually see are second tier pens with warped bodies, bent nibs, and 39.99 price tags!
