A more precise writing implement has never been made. Using these pens makes you feel like Thomas Jefferson crossed with Warren Buffet while writing anything from signing a billion dollar contract to creating the Costco list.
I bought both on Feb. 1, 1994 the Meisterstruck fountain along with the Meistertruck rollerball. Shortly after that I burned out on executive life, and since then both have been in the rollerballs original box, in a dark drawer until now, as I sell everything and plan on hitting the road. The piston works, and it probably needs a cleaning.
The Meisterstück 149 - a design that writes history. Deep black precious resin with gold-coated details, surmounted by the white star emblem and finished with a handcrafted gold nib, evolve into Montblancs design icon.Hand-crafted Au750 / 18 K gold nib with rhodium-coated inlay. Signature nib (03B) available as a replacement.
I believe the rollerball is a. Both are in mint condition, no dents, scrapes, scratches. In addition I have Mont Blancs permanent black fountain pen ink in the original box and the distinctive ink bottle adorned with the classic Mont Blanc star. This had at most 2 pen fills taken so out of the original 52 oz. So it must have around 48 oz.
Please note that the box was printed before the unification of East and West Germany, as it specifies made in W-Germany!
