Picture the first time you ever put ink to paper. It was an artistic mess only a parent could love.
You marvelled at your creation and quickly promoted yourself to the hallway before gracing the living room with your greatest masterpiece. You were subsequently threatened with adoption.
Why the walk down memory lane? Because there’s art in every story and every story needs the perfect tool to tell it. Montblanc is a name that does exactly that in the modern world.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”206942″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”How The Fountain Pen Was Born” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]The fountain pen is a timeless writing instrument which has proven its relevance in today’s society as much as it did during its first recorded mention in the 10th century.
It was around this period that leaders of the earliest Islamic states had demanded a pen that could store ink in a reservoir so that it could be held upside-down without leaking.
From there, evidence suggests that the fountain pen began gracing the hands of history’s greatest visionaries, writers and creators.
Leonardo da Vinci rocked one during the Renaissance throughout the 14th century and in his recovered journals which survive till this day, there are cross-section drawings of what appears to be a reservoir pen operated by both gravity and capillary action.
Whilst Da Vinci’s fountain pen was never found, historians studied his handwriting and noticed a consistent contrast throughout the pages, a clue which suggests he jotted down his greatest thoughts and ideas with a fountain pen instead of a quill pen – the latter of which was notorious for leaving a fading ink pattern due to the re-dipping process.
By the start of the 17th century the fountain pen’s popularity was beginning to show in Europe.
1636 saw German inventor Daniel Schwenter describing a pen made from two quills where one quill served as a reservoir for ink inside another quill.
1827 brought on the world’s first patent for the fountain pen awarded to Romanian inventor Petrache Poenaru by the French Government (pictured). And by the mid-to-late 1800s, the fountain pen had made its way to U.S soil.
Today, Montblanc, the German name behind some of the world’s finest luxury goods is continuing to pave the future for this enduring tradition of forging art and engineering.But just like the resurgence of the mechanical wristwatch that was once destined to be superseded by the quartz movement, the fountain pen has also earned its place in the contemporary wardrobe.
Montblanc introduced their flagship Meisterstück fountain pen back in 1924 and since then they’ve made their way from the Hamburg workshop into the hands of distinguished names like Ernest Hemingway and Barack Obama.
These are milestones upheld by Montblanc’s unyielding drive to create writing instruments that transcend seamless writing in order to showcase pioneering design, innovation and heritage in every stroke.
More importantly it’s an achievement which has bridged the gap between an everyday writing tool and the modern day status symbol.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”206963″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Crafted For Superior Storytelling, Refined For Pure Luxury

The reward is a writing experience and instrument like no other; one that takes over 100 steps to complete and 35 individual steps to finish for the nib alone.
So how are they made? The nibs are designed in elegant options of 14-karat or 18-karat yellow, red, white and champagne golds. These artisan crafted components are all embossed with Montblanc’s ‘4810’ moniker, a signature figure which represents the metric height of the Mont Blanc mountain’s highest peak.
These nibs are then buffed by hand by a diamond file to attain the perfect shape and symmetry before an iridium tip is welded on to ensure durable and smooth writing. After this step the the tip is further shaped by hand with a highly specialised and intricate ‘figure-eight’ motion – a highly critical process which will determine how a user writes.
Montblanc will repeat this process for all eight tip sizes they offer before the nib is polished and finally assembled into the fountain pen’s main body – but not before the nibs go through a rigorous testing phase in a quiet room to determine how they sound gliding over paper alongside its feel.
Some may call this over-engineering. For Montblanc it’s simply tradition and luxury refined at the highest level.
That’s why on every Montblanc fountain pen you’ll find their iconic snow cap (peak of the Mont Blanc mountain in top view) gracing the cap.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”206961″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Write Your Own Piece Of History” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Signing off on your life’s most celebrated achievements requires an equally celebrated instrument.

From beginnings in 1906, the name Montblanc came about in 1909, as a way of recognising their pen as the pinnacle of quality pens, as the Mont Blanc is the pinnacle of the Alps. In 1924, they introduced one of the most famous pen ranges in the world, the Meisterstuck ('masterpiece'). The height of the mountain in metres, 4810, has been engraved on their nibs since 1929. While many luxury goods companies rest mainly on their history, Montblanc continue to update their style, with highly contemporary collections and modern editions sitting alongside the classics.
