    This is very frustrating since in addition to being a fan of Montblanc I also collect and love using pre 1930s Waterman pens, which are known for their great flexible nibs.

    When these first came out, I put my name on a list at the Fountain pen Hospital. They were going to notify people when they became available. I never heard from them

    So this nib is, for me at least, like the very frustrating "un-obtainium"

    Maybe someday before i die, I will get to see one of these pens, but I'm not holding my breath
    At the Montblanc Webshop you can set a E-Mail notification when they become available.
    They become occasionally available for a couple of hours until they are sold out again.
    So you have to be fast when you got the mail notification.
    So I got mine.

    I think the demand is much higher than the Production, so your best chance to get one is the Webshop.

    Is there anyway to keep this thread at top, or in a special place? I"m new here - in some other forums I go to there are "stickies" which putthe thread at the top of the subforum.

    I "ordered" one from Fahrneys 6 months ago after reading these postings and all I receive are email advertisments from them. No evidence that there really are any for sale.
    I think that MB made a small number of them for whatever reason and that was it. No more to come

    Just subscribe to the thread (under thread tools at the top of the first post on any page) and you'll get a notification when there's a new post. Stickies are put in place by moderators (on forums that have them) for important information or frequently asked questions and most users have no input on what these might be.

    I waited eleven months for mine. I ordered one at the end of May 2020 and received it early May of this year. Have you asked Fahrney’s about your order?

    I called Fahrneys and spoke with someone who sounded knowledgable
    He said that Montblanc has stopped making the 149 Calligraphy pen.

    So I guess that I'll scratch that off of my wish list.

    My largest collection of pens are old Waterman pens from the pre 1930 era.

    Many of these have wonderful flexible nibs. Had anyone compared the flex of the MB 149 calligraphy
    with the flex of a 1920s Waterman 7 Pink or Red nib for example?

    Or any Waterman with good flex for that matter?

    Actually lot of people seems to underrate this "Nib"
    I am sure It has many more characters in a well trained hand.
    This thread proves more to that many other nibs, vintage or antiques or TRUE CALLIGRAPHY DREAM NIBS have their own place as this Mont Blanc Calligraphy has it's own charactors.
    This thread proves that clearly. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/f...e/36/#comments
    If you are a calligrapher this pen will be great in your hand.

    I would've liked to test one at my local boutique. Alas, Montblanc closed that boutique, and I won't buy without writing with one first to see if I already own a pen capable of the same result.
