    Your "unusual mini Meisterstück" is a Mozart. The smallest one. That is my latest Montblanc acquisition but mine is bordeaux & gold. It had to go to Montblanc to have a couple of problems fixed, but it's now like new. I love it.

    Chrissy Thank you for your enlightenment on the Meisterstück Mini. When I bought it, I even didn't bother to get to know what it was. It did not have a Converter.
    So I had a Kaweco piston converter and just tried to stick it in . So it worked but it is so long that the converter can't fill fully so the piston filler stay long. I tried to get the minimum ink filling so the barrel can screw back safely.
    This is temporary until I find a converter for this pen. It is a lovely writer and very tiny in the hand. I can use it as if I use a Kaweco Sport in some flourishing type and drawing.

    Sadly the hood is cracked in two places -- didn't realize until ink leaked all over my fingers.

    I would suggest caution in choosing that model-- or any similar design that would be prone to stress cracks like this. :/

    I should have researched the model more -- all too easy to find threads about repairing cracked 221s. And similarly cracked examples on ebay.

    I really like your handwriting. Are you able to write better with a fine or medium?

    Thank you Analougriter,
    My usual nib is fine and Extra fine. I hardly use medium unless it is an Italic. But these Mbs are exclusive as they have a M and 146 is a fine which I love. I am trying to get used to m in writing here.

    I found an inexpensive replacement hood so my 221 is back to laying down ink on the page and not my fingers!

    Just got my second WE. I'm really enjoying the balance on this pen. I wish MB would bring back this style pen as their regular lineup or as part of their heritage line.
