This fountain pen I purchased in medium nib is flawless. It does not post, but that’s not an issue for me. Montblanc hit it out of the park with the writers edition Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. My career was as a law enforcement officer, so I love Doyle. This pen is perfection. The medium nib is so buttery smooth, flows well and holds a ton of ink if you choose. I’ve had strangers ask me where I got this beautiful pen. This pen, my 146 and my Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age are my top 3. You won’t regret this purchase. The book and box it comes with are stunning as well.
The ruthenium trim/nib surprised me. After reading the “book” about the pen I now understand the symbolism. I believe it represents the shadows of London and the blue represents the fog. I think MB made some good decisions about the symbolism. I usually choose broad nibs but the medium on this pen is lovely, smooth with just the right ink flow. The pen makes a good daily writer.
