Montblanc Meisterstück 149 Calligraphy Curved Nib Fountain Pen Black Gold Trim
The Montblanc Meisterstück 149 collection is a design that writes history. The Meisterstück collection was introduced in 1924, with the name meaning “Masterpiece”, and it has become a symbol for high quality luxury.
The cap and barrel of the Montblanc Meisterstück GT 149 Calligraphy Curved Nib Fountain Pen are crafted in black precious resin, featuring the iconic white Montblanc emblem inlaid in the cap top. This edition of the famous fountain pen is crowned with the innovative curved nib, which is hand-crafted in 18K solid gold and garnished with three delicate parallel lines; a symbol inspired by calligraphy movements.
The curved nib is ground at an angle of approximately 45 degrees, which allows a variety of writing styles and line widths, depending on the angle and the orientation at which the writing instrument is held. Comparable to an architect nib, the curved nib writes a thinner line (width M) when moved vertically, and a wider line (width BB) when moved horizontally. A curved nib is suited for Chinese, Japanese and Korean calligraphy, for sketching and drawing designs, but also to add extra flair to regular handwriting. Allowing a form of self-expression and creativity, the art of calligraphy requires the versatility of a nib that allows for a variety of line widths, shapes and styles to enhance the beauty of handwriting.
