    Got this recently restored by the great Francis Goosens. Montblanc Simplo Compressor #4 !

    New clip from Tom Westerich, Sterling silver with green gem eyes.

    Not the original nib, but a nice OM flex from a 344.bb10bc5c-e689-4615-ba40-40966e388022.JPG

    10 years in of serious pen-dom, using fountain pens since 1966... I still have yet to purchase an MB writing instrument. A handful of inks and a couple of empty "boot" bottles to use for other inks, but no reason to buy one of the pens. Time will tell.

    I just got a UNICEF rollerball after buying and returning a Legrand rollerball from an ebay seller. The cap top is very nice and even the little blue stone doesn't make it gaudy. I also have a 146 at the repair facility for scratches on the barrel.

    Got this Montblanc 134 with rare wartime engraved capband (first time for the triple cap band we know and love was hinted at ?)

    First I heard of the 264, found this thread http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/fo...montblanc-264/

    Guess it was mainly a model that kept the open nib and screw cap alternative to the other 24x, less likely to end up with a cracked cap compared to the slip-cap options of the 50s.

    I currently do not own a Montblanc fountain pen... yet.

    I was, however, lucky enough to obtain this MB bottle of 'Swan Illusion: Plume' ink to fill my Edison Beaumont.

    Looks like a nice ink, limited edition? Seems to be like as very light taupe/champagne color that shades down to a nice off-white grey.

    Looks like a potentially excellent ink/pen match. Enjoy!

    My own recent MB acquisition was also ink - with many thanks to member asw - a bottle of discontinued Sepia. Not an ink I knew of at all, and despite my hopes still an ink I don't know because the weekend proved hopeless for inksperiment. Ah well, hope oft deferred and all that.
