Some pens are nicer than others for poetry, letters and journalling. My Montblanc 244 is one of those. It’s diminutive, has character and a flexy nib that provides the varied strokes needed for such tasks.
It has patina, but is still shiny.
This pen is one of the Danish Montblancs produced 1941-1954. Thus it’s at least 58 years old, and it would be interesting to know how many letters it has produced so far.
The pointy cap tip differs from the later version and also signals that this pen was manufactured in Denmark.
Cracked, pointy star longing to take off.
Simple, sleek elegance in the wild.
Still flexing it’s tines after 58+ years.
Ready to slash the page with witty words. Note the smart, flat feeder.
Hard boiled flex.
Flexed poetic prose. The inkflow is almost perfectly dimensioned for all kinds of writing – from a light touch to the more extreme flexes – with this experienced, mature and sweet nib.
