Triple incoming - Montblanc writers edition

Hi all,

I have a few standard Montblanc pens which I use for work but I started to look at the limited editions and they are stunning in person.

I wanted to get ones that I can use at home and that I liked so I started with these three and look forward to adding some more in the future!













Cheers!

Very nice. My watch AD is also an authorized Mont Blanc dealer so I get to see a few of the LE pens come through.

Thanks - the Dumas is a very special pen as it is one of the most decorated of the writers editions.

Great selection, but be careful...just like our Rolex watches, those pens are addictive - don't be surprised if you find yourself adding more of them to the collection!

I am a huge fan of the limited edition Montblanc pens and have been fortunate enough to nail down ballpoint versions of every pen in the Writers' Series. I have a few of the other LE Pens, most recently picking up the Walt Disney. While it is considerably more than I have spent for any of my other pens, I am visiting my local Montblanc boutique on Saturday to get a Great Masters James Purdey rollerball. It is an absolute work of art!

Not that you need my approval, but I was pleased to read that you use your pens at work! I rotate through my entire collection regularly, carrying and using my pens on a daily basis. IMO, our watches, pens, and other "toys" are nice, but, IMO, they are meant to be used and enjoyed.

Best,
Skip

Interesting collection; I wish the pens were labeled so I knew which was what. I today purchased a couple of Writers Limited Edition pens, one roller ball and one fountain. I'm anxious to receive them.

OK, one is obviously Shakespeare, one is the Dumas with the marble looking barrel, and the third is the Kipling. A nice collection.
