    Default New Vintage Montblanc Website

    Hi All,

    I've been working on putting together a website on vintage Montblanc pens. Over the past few months I've tried to steal a few minutes here and there every day or so, to write up one section at a time. Its the first time I've made a website or written content that is non-academic, and so it's nothing special, really. Photos were just taken using an iPhone. So, its a super modest site, but I wanted to share some information with other enthusiasts out there. The site is much better on the desktop than phone but check it out anywhere if you have a few minutes > https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com

    The website has two sections:
    1. Pen reviews - I explain the history and features of my vintage MBs. I have more than 35 pen reviews up including some seriously rare pens like an MB matchstick filler, a few rare No. 12s, 45s, lever fillers, and many more. Also, there is a list of truly rare pens that are yet for feature. Look here https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com/pen-reviews-1
    2. Pen talk - I post interviews with pen experts and collectors. So far I have an enlightening interview with Francis Goossens, an interview with Poul Lund (author of Montblanc in Denmark), and coming soon is a truly insightful article on the evolution of the 149 by none other than barry Gabay! You can find the interviews here https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com/pen-talk

    What I am proudest about is that many vintage pen collectors have started contributing pictures of their prized pens to help us make this website as comprehensive a respository of infromation on rare and vintage MBs as possible! This is a purely non-commerical endeavour, and so if you would like to contribute pics of your pens please get in touch with me.

    I will keep updating this thread everytime I post new content on the site.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks Zisi for this great site. Very instructive.
    I don't like modern MB, but like vintage, with a preference for the 2xx and 3xx.

    Nice to be sharing it with this community, too.

    Just when I thought the pendom is dying out, your website has unleashed new energy.

    Kudos to your passion and contribution for novice like us. Especially getting to do a workshop with great Francis is an achievement in itself.

    A big thank you from the FP fraternity .

    I am very pleased to share this truly insightful interview with Barry Gabay - writer and contributing editor to Pen World magazine for more than 20 years! His seminal article on the evolution of the 149 published in 2002 is highly revered by collectors the world over!

    I recommend that you read our interview on a laptop/desktop rather than phone - it is filled with captivating details about Barry's experiences with 149s over the course of more than four decades!

    Here is the link --> https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com...-interview-149

    Barry's knowledge is only surpassed by his kindness and generosity, as I experienced first-hand while working with him on this interview.

    Enjoy!

    I'm surprised that the malachite remains a mystery.
