I had always wondered what a Montblanc would feel like. But until now, I felt they were much above my price range. So, when Truphae had a sale on used Montblancs I decided to stretch it just a bit.
I got the 145P in black and platinum as a similar one in gold was already taken.
I am happy with the condition of the pen. The nib looks great and so smooth it just glides on paper. The pen did not come with a converter, so when I mentioned it to Truphae, they immediately sent me a generic one that was compatible - at no cost.
Now, I will look for a 146 in fine or extra fine. I think the slightly larger pen will fit my hands even more comfortably.
