    Hello to all fountain pen fans! In 2019, this brand shook the world pen community with its appearance. Of course, it would be more interesting to try the Nautilus model, which from the point of view of design is much more attractive, but the only one Korean store where I found an attractive color completely ignored me. That is, when you are refused, it is of course an unpleasant thing but sometimes understand, but when you are completely ignored, it is much more unpleasant, especially since I asked to purchase for the full price, I was only interested in the possibility of delivery with any variants. So a few days before my latest purchase – Pilot Custom 845 , I happened to see this model for sale and decided to take a chance.

    Narwhal Schuylkill 365 Limited Edition Ebonite (made in USA?)

    This pen has a straight cylindrical shape with an almost flat tops and made of red-purple woodgrain ebonite. Some sources say that it is red or dark red ebonite, but it is actually red-purple. The body and cap are fully turning on a lathe, not injection molding. Filling system is real piston-filler. Cap on thread, 2 starts thread, opening/closing in 1 and 1/3 turns.

    @Andrew, lovely review as usual I love ebonite pens, especially vintage ones. You probably know this but Narwhal changed names to Nahvalur

    Yes, thanks, I like the vintage much more too. I know that the name has changed now, but the official website has remained the same and this model has not changed its name because it is limited and is no longer produced. So I allowed myself to keep the name Narwhal))

    Hi! Early some markets did not accept 14K gold as jewelry gold, notably France, so the Montblanc produced 18K nibs for those markets. This model is just one of those. And although I already have several reviews on this model, I decided to make a personal post. I had planned to finish the review on Tuesday, but another missile attack by the Russians plunged us into darkness for 30 hours and left us without heat and water, so I’m only finishing the review now.

    Montblanc Meisterstück 146 French edition (made in Germany) from 1990

    This tool has the same shape known to us as “cigar-like” shape named Streamlined at the time of its release. The body is made of black plastic, which traditionally glows red on backlight. There is an ink window on the body for monitoring with gray tone. Cap on thread, 4-start thread, full closure in 1 turn. The base of the piston collar made from metal (brass), but internal parts are plastic, including the rod.
