Another of my absolute favourite writers is my Montblanc 146 (Le Grand) with an absolutely wonderful customized nib. Mine is a vintage from the 80s with a beautiful single tone gold nib and a lot of character. I prefer it to the newer more blingy two tone nibs. It is a pity that contemporary Montblanc pens are sold and marketed more as accessoires than pens. This is a pen that I use almost every day and – just like the Visconti Opera – it fits my hand very well. A classic icon.
