Hepworth Comment

The Meisterstuck 12, 14, 22 and 24 replaced the torpedo shaped 142, 144 and 146 series of the 1950's. The hooded nib, the triangular shape of the clip and slip-cap show typical design trends of the 1960's. The Montblanc 12 is slimmer and a lighter than its predecessors. The medium cursive wing nib is an absolute delight to write with.
