Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Translucent winter dusk. Snapped on my way home today. I hope to return to blogging next year. I miss it. Wish you continued Happy Holidays and a Happy New 2015!

striped green tiger (montblanc 146)

I happened to come by this green striated Montblanc 146 a while ago and couldn’t believe my luck. It has hadĀ one previous owner and I bought it from his son. I am too prosaic to have grail pens – pens are just things, after all – but even so I was thrilled to come by one of the prettiest classic pens I know of. It had a few minor issues that had to be fixed before it was ready to be used and today it was finally ready to be tried out. The nib is a flexy EF and fits my sloppy, fast handwriting perfectly and I already dare to say it will be used for writing letters and journalling. I’ll try to post more writing samples and make a more in depth analysis of it, but for now I’ll just share these pics of my green tiger. Doesn’t it look yummy?
