    Default Authenticity and model of this Mont Blanc?

    Was gifted this by a relative. Anyone know of its age, authenticity, model, and how to replace the ink? My first pen and Iím trying to gain some knowledge. Thank you!
    Also, I know to replace ink you twist counterclockwise (I believe) but it doesnít budge with light force. Donít want to damage or force anything. Iím new to this site as well as pens in general so hope Iím not asking silly questions.

    It looks like a Montblanc Generation ballpoint pen. To insert a new BP refill you would need to remove the cap by turning it counter clockwise.
    It's difficult to say whether it's authentic from that picture but if you buy a genuine Mb refill and it fits then that would be a good indicator. There's nothing about it that shouts our fake.

    Finally got it open, and it does have a Montblanc pen refill in it. However the outise of the refil feels slightly sticky or oily. Is this normal? Or should I wipe off the residue? Also any advice on cleaning in general? Polishing, and removing slight scratches? If I bring it to a Montblanc store would they do any cleaning (for free)?

    The Generation BP isn't one of their more expensive models. Since you need a new refill anyway just buy a new BP refill and don't worry too much about the outside of the old one or about removing scratches. The Montblanc store is unlikely to do anything for free.
