Hepworth Comment


Rarer 264 model, compared to the 254 released about the same time. When Montblanc created the 25x line, they began to use wing nibs and slip caps. But to satisfy those customers who did not want to take such a distinct step away from previous designs, the 264 was created with a traditionally shaped nib and a screw-on cap. One of the distinct advantages of the design is that the model is not as susceptible to the pressure cracks in the cap that is regularly seen on the 25x pens.
