Back in the days of my highly ego-motivated management work, I bought myself a present. I went walking into an Office Depot store one day and, with a sense of worthiness and self-deservedness, laid down about $80. to buy myself one of these pens. I had coveted them in the pockets and in the hands of others for many years - now it was MY turn! I bought a couple of extra (Medium Black) refills, put the thing in my shirt pocket and went on my way feeling as though I had just invested in acknowledging my own success.

Over the ensuing years (nearly 20 of them), I have used this pen nearly daily and while, at first, it seemed a bit to heavy and wide, my hand quickly adjusted to it's feel. I simply love it. The refills manufactured for it by Mont Blanc are, incidentally, FAR superior to the second-rung "Fits Mont Blanc" refills available at most office supply stores and are consistent with the instrument itself.

But, I am writing this review, in large part to comment on my experience with the Warrantee - said (and written) to be "... for the lifetime of the original owner." I have seen many such warrantees and guarantees in my life and have adjusted my expectations about their fulfillment down to a level commensurate with my actual experience. The Mont Blanc was an exception. Together with its flawless heavy highly polished black resin case, 24-karat gold appointments and amazingly smooth scripting, one needs to hold and write with it to fully appreciate both its enduring beauty AND functionality.

After about 15 years, something (I was never quite sure exactly what) happened that crushed the lower part of the pen. For a month or so, it sat in my desk drawer and each time I looked at it, I was saddened. The, I recalled the warrantee.

There was a time when slim pens, notably those made by Cross, were the IN thing in the business world. Montblanc, which had been around since 1906, was thought of more as an aristocratic brand. Then, in the mid-nineties, Montblanc suddenly became the ultimate business-class pen. At that time, the product you see here sold for $100 -- considerably more than the Cross designs. The Montblanc pens, because they were thicker, were more comfortable to hold, and didn't tire out the hand like the slimmer pens and pencils. As others have said, the Montblanc pens also write incredibly smoothly. Other brands followed suit with thicker pens, but, if you wanted the ultimate, you bought a $100 Montblanc Meisterstuck pen. It was the gold-standard. If you were in the technical disciplines, you bought a pen-and-pencil pair.

It wasn't long before Montblancs became so widespread, that they lost a bit of their cache. Montblanc Corporation also offered a wide range of special designs, including limited-editions, and while they sold enough to make a profit, business people, particularly men, tended to treat them as a bit frivolous for everyday use. Montblanc faced a problem: most of the people who could afford Montblancs and valued them as symbols of success as well as practical writing instruments already had them. Could Montblanc count on new professionals entering the workplace buying their pens? Or would new professionals see them as symbols of the previous generation? Would they go the way of the slim designs?

Montblanc made a smart business decision. They decided to raise the price of the Meisterstuck. I don't know how long Montblanc took to get to the current price point of $350, or exactly when they made the first price increase beyond $100. Maybe someone else will comment.

I bought what I thought was a Montblanc pen through one of Amazon's 'sellers'. I spent almost 300.00 on it for my husband for our 25th wedding anniversary, in December of 2008. The body of the pen cracked, and we sent it to Montblanc for repair. They sent it back, telling us they wouldn't repair it because it wasn't a Montblanc pen. So, my husband ended up with a worthless cracked pen, and by that time the 'seller' was long gone. I got nothing back, was told the A-Z refund guarantee had expired. I was also told (by a Montblanc rep) that the only place you can buy a genuine Montblanc pen is from a Montblanc dealer. So beware, I got stuck with a 2.00 pen that cost me almost 300.00. I was not given any type of a refund, credit, nothing. I'm still very upset about this.

After years of using a gold Cross Century pen that I purchased in 1978, I received a Mont Blanc Meisterstuck ballpoint pen as a Christmas gift in 1992, and was delighted that the black ballpoint refill had a thick, dark, smooth line that made the pen a joy to write with, never skipping or varying in quality. By contast, the Cross refills of the day wrote smoothly, but with a fainter, almost gray, line. So I put my Cross away and was in pen heaven for several years. But about 10-12 years ago, Mont Blanc started monkeying around with their ballpoint refill formula and haven't gotten it right since. They went through several design changes, most recently to a stainless steel point, but none was even close to their original formula. Mont Blanc's current refills start out writing okay, but after a few pages (I take notes all day in my clinical office), the refill starts skipping and writing with a thin, scratchy feel. After several years of frustration, and many thrown-away refills, I sadly boxed my Mont Blanc and turned back to my old, slim, gold Cross Century pen. I then discovered that their refills now write with a smooth, dark line,although they tend to blob somewhat, requiring frequent nib-wipes on the page. But the Mont Blanc refills are useless. It baffles me that a company that manufactures and sells a 400-dollar ballpoint pen can't figure out how to make a refill that writes at least as good as a 40-cent Bic pen. I've written to the Mont Blanc company about this several times, but each time, they just sent me another one of their bad refills, and I don't think my comments get much farther than some secretary's secretary. Selling an expensive pen that doesn't write is like selling an expensive watch that doesn't tell time.Read more ›
