I just realised that, I haven’t written anything about Montblanc for a long time. In an era of iPads and voice recognition, Montblanc and other fountain pen brands are still going strong. I don’t mean to say that these brands are just trying to survive – they are actually doing very well.
Recently, Montblanc unveiled a new fountain pen – the Writers Edition Homage to Brothers Grimm Limited Edition 8 Fountain – which is priced at £164,000. I’m too lazy to convert it to other currencies, but suffice it to say that it’s expensive in any currency.
This is a limited edition fountain pen, and unlike other limited edition Montblancs, the craftsmanship is at its finest level. While it’s not to my taste with the diamonds and gold, I have to be fair to the people who designed and made this fountain pen.
Does a fountain pen worth £164,000? It is up to you.
