The Montblanc Meisterstuck Hemingway echoes a classic fountain pen that was designed and made by hand in the 30s. The combination of harmonious colours and a consummate shape gives the Mont Blanc Hemingway its unique appeal.
As a tribute to one of the great American writers of the 20th century, Montblanc introduced the Hemingway fountain pen in the autumn of 1992. Modelled after a Montblanc design from the 1930′s, it recalls the time of Ernest Hemingway, a time of great style and verve.
