Restoration/ Service

Although pen is 'New Old Stock' it has been fully disassembled to component level. Nib and feed removed from section, nib polished and re-aligned with feeder. Piston filling mechanism removed, cleaned, lubricated and adjusted for maximum piston travel. 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 cracks, hairlines and noticeable surface scratches. There are no personalisation. Gold plating to clip and cap bands is excellent with no pitting or age related ware. Barrel and cap have a high gloss sheen. Piston filling system slides with ease and draws up maximum ink volume. Cap to barrel screw and clip are firm and positive. Overall pen is ready to write and is in very excellent condition. 

Hepworth Comment

This Montblanc Meisterstuck 146 in black resin, is the fore-runner to the current Le Grande model. Due to specification modifications over the years, in particular, the mono-tone nib, round split BHR feed, clip ring markings and brass piston screw, we are able to date this particular pen to c.1985/89. Barrel carries the original nib size and made in West Germany sticker.
