Writing

Finding the ideal writing position and nib

Choose from eight different nib widths to find the one that matches your writing style, allowing your writing to flow effortlessly, resulting in highly attractive handwriting. Montblanc Service will be glad to supply a different nib free of charge if you return the original nib in as new condition within 6 weeks.

Traveling

To prevent the pen from leaking, please carry your pen with the nib pointing upwards. Please note that at least 1/3 of the reservoir should be filled with ink. The correct filling process is of particular importance before air travel due to the difference in air pressure in planes.

Caring

Your writing instrument is manufactured from the distinctive Montblanc resin, a material which compares with fine porcelain in its resistance to scratching, its noble sheen and its lasting beauty. Please treat it accordingly, to protect it from breakage and damage. The pearls which adorn some Montblanc writing instruments have great character, but demand special attention. In comparison to precious stones, pearls are relatively soft. Please keep your pearl decorated writing instrument separate from hard objects, and avoid heat and aggressive cleaning agents. A soft cloth, moistened with water, is all you need for cleaning.
