Restoration and Service
No restoration required. The pen has been fully serviced. Dismantled, ultrasonically cleaned, nib and ink feeder re-aligned in section to line up cap clip and top of nib when cap is screw posted. Pen has been dip write tested, flushed with clean and then gently hand polished.
Pen barrel and cap are free from cracks, hairlines and scratches with a high gloss sheen. Platinum plating to metal fittings show no sign of wear or scratching. There is no personalisation. Nib has a hint of flex and writes a very smooth medium line. Pen is supplied in original Montblanc box, which is also in very good condition, genuine Montblanc piston convertor and warranty/user booklet. We would consider this pen to be in overall excellent condition.
Only manufactured between 2000 and 2002 makes this pen quite rare. The fact that this medium size Boheme can use a piston convertor as well as cartridges makes this model more user friendly when it comes to ink choice.
