Montblanc Noblesse Oblige Fountain Pen

No restoration required. We have however, fully disassembled and ultrasonically cleaned all parts to remove traces of old ink. Nib and feed removed from section, nib polished and  correctly re-aligned with feed. Pen barrel and cap delicately hand polished. Reassembled, write tested and finally flushed with clean water.

General Condition
Pen barrel and cap are free from scratches, with no dents. There are no personalisation. Gold plating to clip and trim is excellent. Godron stripe is highly defined. Cap to barrel 'click-on' push fit is positive, with no gold abrasion to section lock ring.  We would classify this pen as being in very excellent condition. Pen is supplied in original Montblanc velvetpresentation box and  service / warranty booklet.

Hepworth Comment

Lovely slimline fountain pen from Montblanc. The 'Noblesse Slimline' was the first, and is still one of the most sort after slimline fountain pens made by Montblanc.
